German Mauser 712 (1932) Schnellfeuer Broomhandle 7.63 Mauser Transferable C&R Eligible Machine Pistol w/ Original Accessories
Status: In-Stock / Please Call to Purchase
This Chester County Armory listing is for an original, Curio and Relic license eligible, German factory-made Mauser Model 712 Schnellfeuer fully transferable machine pistol chambered in 7.63 Mauser, along with an original Mauser detachable wooden stock that doubles as a holster/case for the weapon. This is an original factory machine gun and not a semi-auto converted model.
Commonly referred to as a “Broomhandle” based on the distinctive appearance of the wooden pistol grips, the 1932 Schnellfeuer was a 2nd generation version of the Model 712, which was the first full-auto machine pistol version of the wildly popular C96 Broomhandle pistol. Chambered in its original 7.63 Mauser cartridge, the Mauser 1932 Schnellfeuer-Pistole, or “rapid-fire pistol” featured production upgrades designed by Karl Westinger that addressed the reliability issues of the original 712 design. With its removable shoulder stock attached, this weapon became a very unique, combat-capable weapon that was eventually adopted by the German military in 1939 and was often issued to Wehrmacht and Waffen-SS military police and reconnaissance units, as well as to motorcycle dispatch riders. Due to its ability be small and compact, yet retain a select-fire capability, its use was especially suited to units like these, that needed fire-power, but yet quick and easy mobility.
Rarely seen in the US as a fully transferable model, this German-factory weapon was brought into the US as a factory original machine gun prior to the 1968 import cutoff, so it notes no import or secondary construction markings and remains fully transferable. The NFA Form 3 paperwork for this model lists “Mauser” as the manufacturer and “712” as the model. This 5.5″ barreled weapon features a blade front and the 1,000-meter tangent rear sights. The upper left chamber flat has been marked with an “Eagle/N” proof marks along with it’s original Nazi Eagle firing proof. Both the top of the chamber and the right side of the frame feature the original Mauser three-line address markings. The Mauser banner also appears clearly on the left side of the frame, immediately behind the “N” and “R” marked selector switch. This machine pistol also features its original 12-groove wooden Broomhandle grips.
This model is in overall excellent mechanical and cosmetic condition. All original markings are clear and sharp. The metalwork has no dents, dings, cracks, malformations, or markings of any operational concern. The bolt face remain clear and intact. The action is smooth and fully operational. The bore is slightly darkened, but retains solid rifling. Cosmetically, this model is in wonderful condition for its age, with only minor bluing wear and physical use/handling markings noted. The original wood grips are solid and intact with only minor wear.
Purchase of this weapon will include an original Mauser-marked wooden shoulder stock/holster, along with a German leather rifle sling and cleaning rod. It will come with four total magazines (two 20rd magazines and two 10rd magazines), three of which display the Mauser banner on their respective floorplates. The wooden stock is excellent condition with no noted cracks or concerns. The leather on the sling unit remains supple and flexible. All of the magazines retain good physical spring tension.
This fully transferable, C&R eligible machine pistol is currently on a Form 3 for quick and easy transfer.
