Product Description

Broomhandle Mauser, 1898, 12-1/2 inches / 32cmslong

This was the first successful automatic pistol used extensively in the first half of the 20th Century. It is a very detailed non-firing replica. It is constructed of die-cast metal and has working action. The site flips up and has an adjustable slide site. The pull-back mechanism Cocks the Hammer and the Trigger releases it. This is a great collectors decorative replica. This was also a favorite of Winston Churchill.

Great for steampunk, film, or WWI or Chinese theater WWII 1930's-WWII living history.

It is advertised as a non-firing replica with functional controls, but not all of them work as originally designed with this particular model, my only real complaint.

I received this a day earlier than predicted, and it was well packaged and undamaged. The replica comes in a nice box, which is similar to the type of box used for real firearms. The replica itself has a movable bolt which, when pulled back, cocks the hammer. When released, the bolt then slides back into battery with a loud click. The hammer can be cocked without moving the bolt, too. A pull on the trigger makes the hammer fall with a satisfying clank. The rear sight can be adjusted for elevation but not windage, which is sort of an odd feature to have on a non-firing pistol. The only other moving part is the lanyard ring, which moves freely. There is a reddish-orange plastic plug in the muzzle, presumably to identify the "gun" as a non-firing item. The finish of the metal parts was covered in a thick, tacky grease, which did not come off easily. After I wiped it off, the finish looked mottled, almost as if it was rusty. I tried swabbing off a portion of the gun with Hoppe's No. 9 gun solvent, which improved the finish to a minor extent. Consequently, the replica's finish looks as if it is an old, somewhat worn, pistol. When I considered ordering this, I couldn't decide whether to spring for the extra cash to get the version with the genuine wooden grips (which looked way too light in color, anyway), and the photo of this item didn't help, as the grips appeared to be black in color. Some models of the broom handle did have black hard rubber grips, but they were checkered, not grooved. Well, the grips on this replica are not black, but a very dark brown - about the color one would expect 100 year old wooden grips to be after so many years of sweat, oil, and dirt.Read more ›

Avid firearms collectors like myself long for the days of displaying their items over the fireplace mantle, but thanks to theft and liability concerns, those days are long past. Anyone with half a brain locks their guns away from prying eyes these days. Enter the non-firing replicas.....this one gets kudos for looking just like the real thing to the layman, or even a pro at a distance, looks great on the wall. It is advertised as a non-firing replica with functional controls, but not all of them work as originally designed with this particular model, my only real complaint.

Pros:
Nice weight
The slide works and the trigger will release the hammer.
The rear sight and windage works
Almost 1:1 scale

(not so) Cons:
The safety does not work. Have to know the weapon to know why this is a sorta con for this replica.
The finish is rubbing off, not that badly but... I will have to retouch several areas.
Had to adjust the little screw under the barrel to allow the slide to fully work without binding. I might further break it down to correct this.
When the slide slams forward there is a hollow clink sound. This is caused by a totally empty magazine well. I will probably dummy up a magazine follower or something to absorb the sound.

Over all not a bad piece, even with the day glow orange plastic plug in the barrel.
My con listing are sorta cons, most could be overcome with a little bit of ingenuity. I am not unhappy with my purchase.
I bought this replica over a plastic or metal airsoft C96 gun mostly because it was less expensive and metal. It looks real enough from a couple of feet away, unless you know Broomhandle Mausers.

No complaints with the vendor, they were great.

Not a perfect replica model but good enough for all purposes. Close enough to be mistaken for the real thing. Great for steampunk, film, or WWI or Chinese theater WWII 1930's-WWII living history. If you look closely in the film "Thirty Seconds over Tokyo" you will see Chinese partisans wearing them in typical for the time shoulder stock holsters. Chinese Army officers often carried them in conventional holsters.

Broomhandle 98 left over from WWI was the #1 side arm of the Chinese during the 2nd Sino - Japanese War through 1945. Most Americans do not know much about the weapon and its use but most feel it is "weird" looking gun. At one point the actual 98 was rather rare and hard to find until around the 1970's when the PRC released a large amount of them from storage of surplus left over WWII weapons. It still is an interesting weapon.

Original package was poor. The item was loose in a box, no packaging whatsoever. It's a bit of a rough replica, but will work for my needs. Labelling is wrong: it's an 1896 replica, NOT 1898. Any replica made before 1896 models would make it legal to ship to Canada= more sales!
