Manufactured in Vitoria-Gasteiz, Basque Country by Beistegui Hermanos. 7,63x25mm Mauser 20-round detachable box magazine,
full automatic, air cooling fins. So many copies of the C96 were made, Astra made a Schnellfeuer variant even before the official one came out. This one is yet another variation with a fire rate regulating thingamajig.
Manufactured in Russia by master engraver Goltyakov c.1850′s. .36 caliber cap and ball six-shot cylinder, single action, creeping loading lever, Russian-style saw-handle with removable shoulder stock fittings, beautiful etching and engravings. It’s so nice to see anything else than scrollworks on these, especially something with more Oriental inspirations.
