View Full Version : Broomhandle Refurb

April 19, 2002, 12:10 PM
I'm looking for a proven and competent source for a Broomhandle
Mauser refurb (reblue, replace worn and broken parts, resleeve
barrel). I was going to have Mentor in Ohio do it but they're no longer at the phone number in their literature and I assume
they've ceased business. Does anyone know of any other good
C96 resurrection men? Links, phone #'s, etc. would be much appreciated.

Shotgun news used to have somebody advertising in the gunsmithing section that specialized in the refurbishing of the Mauser Broomhandles. As I remember there prices were downright reasonable for all the work they would do, never saw anything they did though. The book pistolsmithing I think by Gary Mitchel has a chapter devoted to refinishing the Broomhandle, you might get the book and try it yourself if you were so inclined.

The Gun Rack is a more full-service shop, I think...Redman's mainly concentrates on re-lining.
