The Mauser C96 (Construktion 96) is a self-loading handgun. It was one of the earliest self-loading handguns developed, and the earliest truly successful one, being adopted by many national militaries and remaining in service for over a half a century. The original weapon was chambered in 7.63x25mm Mauser, and fed from a 10-round integral magazine set slightly ahead of the pistol grip. It made use of a short-recoil system of operation.
Many variants and rechamberings of the weapon were developed, including 9x19mm and .45ACP versions, cavalry variants with much longer barrels, variants that fed from 20-round detachable magazines, and even a fully-automatic variant.
