I have had a desire for a C96 since I saw Clint Eastwood shoot one in the movie Joe Kid, shooting the bad guys at over 400 yards with a stocked 96. The recoil looked like he was shooting 500 S&W out of a Glock 19.
I’ve fired one but never owned one. Yours looks rough but if they are capable of being fired I wouldn’t care if they couldn’t hit the ground. I’d shoot them.
If you don’t mind me asking, how much do you have in them?
