For sale is a Mauser M30 in caliber 7.63mm Mauser. Serial number 900040 (cool in it’s own right!). These are the last variation of the “C96” family of pistols, and the only model to have an actual model number assigned to it. There were some changes in the M30 from the C96. Most notably:
The serial number is moved to the rear of the barrel extension behind the sight. The two grooves in each side of the barrel extension side rails are eliminated. Late 1930 commercial models are usually found in the 890000 - 921000 range with production ending in the late 1930's.
Made from 1930-37 (the year of manufacture for serial number 900040 is 1934 or after)
M-30 approx production dates 1930 - 1937 approx qty made ~ 120,000 approx serial nos. 800,000 - 920,000 caliber 7.63 mm barrel length 5.25", later 5.5" rear sight 50-1000 m Type c, d, or e grip size full size walnut grip panels 12 grooves
You should get a spring kit ( as with ANY older weapon, because the springs weaken with age. Wolf Spring kits are available for $30 or less) and do not fire 7.62x25 Tokarev ammo, EVER! You may find that it chambers and fires OK, but it is really hot and could blow up the M30 and/or wear the parts and barrel out very quickly. ONLY use the appropriate 7.63 Mauser ammo. The pistol is all numbers matching. The grips on these were not numbered. It still retains the original lanyard ring and a lot of the finish. The bore and rifling are in very good condition as well. You don’t see many with good, or ANY rifling.
The holster is a very rare variant that was the only one of it’s kind used during WW2 by the Germans. You see some with Kriegsmarine markings, some with Nazi markings and some not marked like this one. Most likely this was a private purchase pressed into service. Looks to me like this was a WW2 bring back holster that some G.I. pressed into service by installing a U.S.G.I. belt hook (holster did not come with pistol).(Please disregard the Japanese Nambu Type 14 cleaning rod in the holster side pouch. It is NOT included). At any rate, it is a very rare holster and is in nice condition. I am willing to sell this as a rig (as chances are you will NEVER find another holster) or separately. This is cut for a shoulder stock and one CAN be attached leagally (even a repro one).Here is your chance to own a useable Mauser M30 at a great price! This is import marked.
Rig (Pistol & Holster): $1,150.00
Pistol alone: $900.00
Holster alone: $350.00
