That does sound feasible. I stand corrected. Could be more expensive than relining.

I've seen two that have been rebarrelled that way.

There are Mausers with a distinct step in the barrel.
Were these made with a separate barrel screwed in or is that just an abrupt change in turning the one piece upper?

I had always thought that the C96 and extension was a single unit, but according to the write up on this sales site, that's not the case.

Probably a leftover "red 9" slide that couldn't be exported in that caliber under the Versailles treaty. This way they could reuse the slide by adding a 7.62 barrel.

Thanks Mike.

Anybody have Charles Pate's book on the C96 handy? I've never seen a screwed on barrel that was knurled to conceal that fact. Never seen a C96 with a pinned on front sight either.

A lot of sites seem to pass back and forth something like the following: "The pistol is a reproduction of the Chinese Type 17 made at Shansei Arsenal in the late 1920s and early 1930s and imported into the U.S. by Bricklee Trading Company." If the weapon is marked BTC, or BTC/S EL MONTE, well, that might be a clue. Whether the Bricklee imports are entirely, or not at all, original "Chinese produced variants of Mauser pistols" ... or "Chinese copies of a Chinese variant of a Mauser pistol" I can't say. The corporate history of Bricklee Trading Company, Federal Ordnance, etc. is very complicated; ask people on SKS forums (the company was importing Chinese rifles to the US long ago).
