German Style Non-Firing Gun Replica
1898, 12-1/2 inches long. This piece replicates the original in size, weight and
appearance, and the parts function much like the original. However, parts cannot
be interchanged or the replica made to fire ammunition.
This is a realistic replica of the
first successful automatic pistol. This pistol was a favorite of Winston
Churchill. While commonly carried by field troops in WWII, the Mauser has since
been made famous in countless WWII movies.
On November 3, 1893, the United
Kingdoms of Sweden and Norway adopted the 6.5x55 mm cartridge. As a result, the
Swedes chambered their new service weapons, the M/94 carbine and M/96 rifle, in
this round. The rifle action was manufactured relatively unchanged from 1896 to
1944, and the M/94 Carbine, M/96 Rifle, M/38 Short Rifle, and M/41 Sharpshooter
models are known by collectors as "Swedish Mausers". They are often sought after
by military service rifle shooters and hunters. Initial production of the
weapons was in Germany by Waffenfabrik Mauser, with the remainder being
manufactured under license by Sweden's state-run Carl Gustaf factory. The M/38
short rifle was produced by Husqvarna, with additional M/38's being converted
from Model 96 rifles.
"Swedish Steel" is a term for the steel used by the German Mauser, and later
Swedish manufacturing facilities to make the M96 rifles. By chance, Swedish iron
ore contains the proper percentages of trace elements to make good alloy steel.
Thus, though lacking the industrial base necessary for mass producing steel and
iron, the Swedish steel industry had developed a niche market for specialty
high-strength steel alloys containing nickel, copper, and vanadium. Swedish
steels were noted for their strength and corrosion resistance and especially
suited for use in tool-making, cutlery, and firearms. As a consequence, when
Mauser was contracted to fabricate the initial production runs of Swedish
Mausers in Germany due to production delays, Sweden required the use of Swedish
steel in the manufacturing process. The Swedish Ordnance Office continued to
specify the same Swedish steel alloy in Swedish-made Mausers until the last
new-production m/38 barreled actions were completed in 1944.
