East german firearms

One particular point of interest with the C96 is that the weapon is entirely held together through the fit of the parts: there are no pins and only one screw in the entire gun, the one that holds the grip panels on. One unfortunate aspect of this construction is that the barrel and the rest of the upper are a single forging: many vintage Mausers have "shot out" barrels that cannot easily be replaced, and so have been re-bored for 9mm rounds. It should also be noted that with the stock attached, it is more or less necessary to use an irregular hold (thumb of the strong hand not wrapped around the grip) to avoid the hammer slamming into the user's thumb.
