    Mauser Broomhandle Red Nine Postwar Rework with WWI-Dated Holster Rig. Cal. 9mm. Serial Number 131476. Barrel length just under 4", blue finish, grooved walnut grips with large "9" burnished into grips and filled in with red paint. All visible parts matching. Lanyard ring present. Right rear frame panel marked "Waffenfabrik Mauser/ Oberndorf a Neckar". Crown over "U" proof mark on the left side of receiver. Military or police unit mark on the front of the magazine "S. Sta. I. 285." (Stade district mark). Retains about 90% original finish, slightly thin in some areas, with some scratching to the right magazine well and modest holster wear. The action is strong and the bore is excellent. The grips display modest handling wear with some shallowness to the grooves. Excellent WWI-period military holster rig includes a nice wooden holster/ stock with a small crack running the length of the lid with what looks like an old attempt to repair with glue. The brown leather carrying harness is stamped with the manufacturer's name "L. Ritgen/ Karlsruhe" and dated 1918. Additional stamps include Imperial marks "BA XIV" and "L.Z.A." (mark of the leather allotment office) over a spread-wing eagle with "J. Karlsruhe" beneath. The leather is complete with all straps and closures and includes a wood-handled cleaning tool. An excellent pistol and exceptional holster rig, the latter suited for pairing with a WWI-era Broomhandle.
