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 are fed from 20-round detachable magazines, and even a fully-automatic variant.

The C96 is a weapon featured in Battlefield 1. Two variants are featured in the game, the C96 Pistol and the C96 Carbine.
The C96 fills the role of medium damage, medium rate-of-fire pistol for the Medic kit. The C96 is very similar to the Repetierpistole M1912, which fulfils the same role for the support kit. However, the C96 can top up its magazine mid-way through, which is impossible for the Repetierpistole M1912.
The C96 Pistol appears in singleplayer as the main weapon of Daniel Edwards in Through Mud and Blood, equipped with a radium sight. The Carbine variant can be found in weapon crates, often with a scope, and is also used by the Ottoman Empire. A C96 Silencer variant also exists, and can be found inside weapon crates in Through Mud and Blood and The Runner.
The C96, is seen used in trailers and promotional material. An aesthetically altered pistol named the C96 Export is also present in the game.
