The Perfect Gun for a Dedicated Anti-Fascist: The ‘Bolo’ C96 Mauser

Broom handle mauser

Courtesy Sigiloso

Previously I carried my 1943 Walther P38. It was the perfect choice at a time where it was my duty as a good Na…citizen to patrol the neighborhood and enforce COVID-19 regulations. Well, we are at a new point in our nation’s history now, so a new sidearm is called for. That’s why I now carry a “Bolo” C96 Mauser.

Let’s face it, we have lots of problems in this country and the only way to solve them is to ensure everyone thinks alike, ostracize anyone who doesn’t conform, and make examples out of people who resist the mostly peaceful protestors by exposing their privileged status.

But that’s not enough. We all need to do our part, which includes selecting the right weapon for the big job we have ahead of us creating a Marxist utopia. (It’ll work this time, I promise. Really. It just wasn’t done right over the past 100 years each and every time it’s been tried.)

The “Bolo” C96 is the perfect carry gun for woke trust fund suburbanite babies like myself. It’s modern enough (it’s semi-auto), but it has a fixed magazine with only a 10 round capacity. Surely this will be a super-safe, approved gun by our fellow travelers at Everytown and Moms Demand Action (don’t tell them what happens after we win the revolution, they’re very useful to us now).

Not only that, but the pistol has great, proven history during other Bolshevik uprisings and occupations, particular in China, which is where this one served after being made in 1930’s Germany. I figured it’s best to pay tribute to my former comrades, just like this dedicated fascist fighter is doing by training with a Mosin 91/30.


It’s SO awesome to train and fight using the exact same weapons our glorious heroes of the past carried when they seized power and used them to slaughter civilians by the millions in the last century.

Well, it’s time to go on patrol. Tonight we’re spotting and noting houses that are flying Old Glory. We only approve of red stars on flags.

        Home Depot or Lowes has them in stock. 😉

        broom-handle are very good carry guns. thin no big buldge under your coat, only one major problem with them, if your ammunition is old ,it will jerk the rim off the brass and stack the next round in the breech then it blows up.taking the extractor at the anchor pin. mine did that twice to me before i donated it to B.A.T.F…before it took my head off….

        1. avatar Not Larry from Texas says:

          So by new ammo? Or am over thinking it.

    2. avatar Ki77acommie4mommie says:

      No way. Socialism is for the people, not the socialist. Those who take part in the marxist uprising will surely get at least 3 moldy potatoes and all the leather shoestring soup that their socialist bellies will hold.

    3. avatar c says:

      What calibor is that thing? It looks kind of cool, I’d like to shoot it WOuldn’t use it for personal defence because I can’t see how you could use the sights.

      1. avatar Not Larry from Texas says:

        7.62 or .63 Mauser

          ” 7.62 or .63 Mauser


          Yes…32cal. Like bogey and Cagney carried in films.

      2. avatar MADDMAXX says:

        If you feel the need for sights in a personal defense situation you are not practicing enough.. muscle memory should be all the sights you need initially, as most incidents occur within 20 feet who has time for sights… or get a good laser…

    What’s the perfect gun for a dedicated anti-communist?

    1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

      Anything you can hit with..

      1. avatar MouseGun says:

        I recently acquired a couple 1911s (A Tisas and a Para), but now I want a long range commie un-aliver. I’m thinking an M1A.

        1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          That will work, but a surplus Mosin-Nagant (7.62x54R) will reach out and touch someone for 100 bucks or less (got mine for $75) if you don’t mind a stick shift….

        2. avatar jwm says:

          Maxx. Love my mosin. But all the ones I’ve seen for sale lately are 400 bucks +. And the cheap ammo has dried up.

          I would go for something more modern at this point.

        3. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          Got mine five or six years ago (actually bought two at $75 each) got 5 sealed cans 660 rounds each at $90 each… I’ll be okay for awhile, and $400 is still way cheaper than a tuned M1A @ $1400 to $1600…. I got an M1A (not for sale) because I fell in love with my M14 in Vietnam (w/full auto select) but could not afford the real deal.. M1A was way cheaper when I bought mine….

        4. avatar c says:

          I’m gonna have to settle for an old Smith & Weston 357 revolver, Wetherby 308 and BRO Spec 15, plus a couple 12 Gauges with No. 4 BUck. I love hunting and grew up doing so. Spec 15 isn’t my hunting choice but for the price of the ammo it’s good to keep you in practice, after all practice makes perfect, so keep practicing. Have fun and enjoy the heck out of shooting.

        5. avatar MADDMAXX says:

          Have fun and enjoy the heck out of shooting.

          It’s the American way…

        6. avatar Miner49er says:

          Well, 7.62 NATO is a great round but that’s a lot to hump around in the woods all day and all night.

          And east of the Mississippi it’s tough to get a shot that will justify the range of the 7.62 NATO.

          Call me crazy but I really like the M1 carbine, .30 projectile and 1000 foot pounds works great out to 100 m.

        7. avatar Not Larry from Texas says:

          I picked up a New England Westinghouse Company with Russian Imperial Stamps, with Finish SA marks on it. The site ladder has the russian arshin stamped out for meters and a bolt that has 2 crossed out serial numbers and 3rd one matching to the receiver. I smell the dead Bolsheviks on it from the winter and continuation wars soaked into the wood.

    3. avatar Nickel Plated says:

      .45 Doesn’t just destroy the body, it destroys the soul.
      Now, I don’t know if I’ll be going to heaven or hell when I die, but either way, I don’t want to see no fucking communists there.

      1. avatar Purity of Essence says:

        Communists have no soul, so that won’t be a problem.

        1. avatar Jerry says:

          Atheist have no souls either.

        2. avatar Chadwick says:

          Fair point.

        3. avatar Purity of Essence says:

          I believe communists are a subset of atheists. I just can’t imagine there is such a creature as a God fearing communist.

      2. avatar MADDMAXX says:

        A 45 destroys the soul but a 10 MM also obliterates the vessel it came in….

        1. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

          yet another instance of length topping girth.

    4. avatar Defens says:

      Atlas rocket loaded with a few hundred megatons of MIRVs worked pretty well.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        The atlas never carried multiple re-entry vehicles, perhaps you’re thinking of the Minuteman.

        1. avatar Purity of Essence says:

          And the Minuteman never carried a few hundred megatons. I think a few hundred kilotons will do the trick for pretty much anything. Kilotons to produce megadeaths.

    Espousing Marxism while singing the praises of a Nazi gun while denigrating the Fascists who were partnered with the Nazis in WWII… Interesting… (Actually Nazism is a form of Fascism)… But hey, I’ll be sure to leave the light on for ya….

    1. avatar Nickel plated says:

      Why so serious?

      1. avatar MADDMAXX says:

        What serious?? Serious would have included a number of “morons”, “idiots” and “dumbshits”…. That WAS me being humorous… I too enjoy shooting my Mosin and my AK and Mauser and my Glock and even a couple of American made pieces… I can actually discern the difference between humor and an asshole trying to start some shit…

    all four branches of Socialism would love those People’s Firearms; the Communist branch, the Fascist branch, the National Socialist branch and the American Progressive branch – especially the Antifa and BLM wings.

    They are useful tools in eradicating Capitalism in place of Socialism. After all, everyone knows that the machinery of Capitalism is oiled by the blood of the workers.

  5. avatar Sam I Am says:

    Full semi-automatic, 10 bullets, who needs more? And you can carry possibly five topped-off stripper clips in the back pocket; sweet. Naturally, these antiques are expensive enough that only those with means can afford them (proles shouldn’t have any firearm that costs more than $200, because they need to save enough to feed and house themselves and family).

    The “Broom handle” pre-dates the Rube Goldberg offerings from St. John Moses, so the C-96 should have been the end of development for auto loading firearms. Life will be good for people sporting this Mauser.

  6. avatar Shire-man says:

    Thats a chic. Dudes don’t be leaning back like that.

      He’s a Soy boy. I doubt those spindly limbs can support his own weight, let alone a 10 pound piece of soviet surplus.

  7. avatar D.J.U. says:

    Good oogly booogly!! I know it’s just satire as any fool crazy enough to print a story like this and be serious enough to stand by their words would surely live their lifes in fear. Their neighbors would secretly plot to line them up on a privacy fence and call in the masked firing squad with all sworn to a life of denial. Then dispose of the your bodies at the closest pig farm. The house would stand vacant or mysteriously burn down in the middle of the night. THE GREAT AMERICAN WAY.
    Although i will admit I extremely envious, as I am a big fan of the 96 broom handles. I saw one come up for auction a while back made in or before the Chinese revolution era that was a 45acp model. Way out of my poor trailer trash reach. A lot of them were 45acp but most were melted down after the commies took over becouse they couldn’t fathom american imperialistic gun in their commy army. Very few of them exsist today.

    1. avatar Sam I Am says:

      “Good oogly booogly!!”

      “oogly booogly”? I thought the phrase was “googly woogly”.

      1. avatar WARFAB says:

        I thought it was “googly moogly”.

        Apparently this needs some clarification.

        1. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “Apparently this needs some clarification.”

          Maybe it’s just a regional, or generational differentiation.

        2. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

          great googly moogly as far as chester burnett (goin’ down slow, howlin’ wolf, probably written by willie dixon) or frank zappa (don’t eat the yellow snow) are concerned.
          but won’t somebody tell me what diddy wah diddy means?

        3. avatar Sam I Am says:

          “but won’t somebody tell me what diddy wah diddy means?”

          I thought it was, “Do wah diddy, diddy, dum,diddy,do.”

        4. avatar tsbhoa.p.jr says:

          that too.

  8. avatar Tom in Oregon says:

    This article needs to be headlined at The Onion, Babylon Bee and a few others.

    Great tongue in cheek!

    1. avatar Chadwick says:

      Or cnn for that matter. I loved their satire of late. If you didn’t have the search function and a memory of 3 days or more you’d think they were extremely serious and extremely consistent.

  9. avatar Billy Bob says:

    All for the greater good, brother. My response, like the article, is sarcasm. Unfortunately, I needed to add that sentence. Honestly, there are folks that dont seem to realize that.

  10. avatar Billy Bob says:

    Guess that gender ! It’s the fun new game brought to us by our progressive leaders. It’s so fun and can be played everywhere by everyone. You can play it at the grocery store, the park while waiting in line at the DMV. You can even play it while looking at sports magazines or watching your favorite talking head on tv. Fun for folks of all ages. Come on, get on board, play along. Soon to be made into a major motion picture.

    1. avatar Fred says:

      Ah, but which gender is the ‘right’ gender? The CIS gender, determined by whether you have XX or XY chromosomes, or the person’s self identified gender?

      When I take a lady to the range on lady’s night, I tell them I have one lady, and one bearded lady; I self-identify as female on lady’s night. It’s gotten me a discount at least once!

  12. avatar The Grammar Trotsky says:

    >Surely this will be a super-safe, approved gun by our fellow travelers

    Sorry, comradeski, but everyone knows semi-auto means machine gun. No borscht for you!

  13. avatar enuf says:

    All the silly satire aside, the C96 was an enormously successful and impressive design. It stayed in production for 65 years, over a million made by multiple manufacturers around the world. From the original 10 round stripper clip, it included 10, 20 and 40 round box magazines. Shoulder stocks, long barrels, all sorts of variations. There were even some .45ACP variants.

    And in “Joe Kidd”, Clint Eastwood was able to pour out hundreds of rounds from a single stripper clip. Even John Wayne never matched that with his Colt SAA!!!

    Yeah, would be a lot of fun to own one.

    1. avatar Miner49er says:

      I was thinking one of rooster Cogburn’s boys had a broom handle…

  14. avatar jwm says:

    The c96 feels funny in my hand. Would rather shoot a Luger.

  16. avatar former water walker says:

    The bad guys were using the broomhandle in one of the Bruce Lee flicks…mediocre satire aside these were common 120years ago. And they still had higher capacity than a revolver😏

  17. avatar Kendahl says:

    I’m disappointed. I expected a serious discussion of the C96 instead of political bullshit.

    My introduction to the C96 was the movie, The Wind and The Lion. A C96 was the sidearm of a Prussian army officer.

    About 35 years ago, I had a chance to buy a C96 in 7.63×25 but declined because it wasn’t 9 mm. I didn’t know enough to tell whether it was worth the price.

    1. avatar Herb Allen says:

      I fell in love with the C96 Broomhandle watching Lawrence of Arabia where the semiconscious Turk tries to take him out with one from under the smashed train. Pow…pow..pow…then Sheikh Auda slices him in twain.

      Finally bought a few in 1980’s when Reagan relaxed import laws & the ChiComs flooded the U.S. market with thousands of Broomhandles. The C96 is to the Chinese what the Colt SAA is to us; part of the national folklore. The earliest semi-auto is amazing to this day.

  18. avatar RCC says:

    We had a couple of C96’s in battalion museum back in the 1970’s. Acquired in WW1. We would occasionally get ammunition for them to run them during familiarisation training as there were a lot of Chinese copies in SE Asia. Fun gun to use and surprisingly accurate at 200 metres wit the shoulder stock / timber holster fitted.

    The nationalist Chinese government made them under licence. The communists kept making them the just forgot to pay the fees.

  19. avatar Ralph says:

    Mauser? I thought he wrote “Mouser,” so I bought a cat.

  20. avatar skiff says:

    George Lincoln Rockwell, head of The American Nazi Party was assassinated in 1967. John Patler used a 7.63mm C96 Mauser. Two shots and one miss. The other through the windshield into his chest.

    1. avatar Ralph says:

      I remember that pompous buffoon, puffing on his pipe and pontificating on everything and anything as if he had a clue. The American Civil Liberties Union actually represented him twice, back in the day when the ACLU actually supported the First Amendment.

      Those were good times, when a Nazi was actually a Nazi. Now all you have to do to be a Nazi is to disagree with the New York Slimes.

      1. avatar Miner49er says:

        It’s still pretty easy to tell, if they march through the streets with torches chanting ‘Jews will not replace us!’ you can be sure…

        1. avatar tdiinva says:

          Your friends at Hamas agree with the Charlottesville crowd and BLM and Antifa are on board with it too.

        2. avatar Miner49er says:

          I’m not familiar with BLM’s stand on the Palestinian question.

          Personally, I’m familiar with history and realize that there was no state of Israel until 1947 when armed elements of the Jewish terrorist unit Irgun killed Palestinians and forcefully took their land.

          Are you familiar with the King David Hotel bombing?

        3. avatar tdiinva says:

          So you studied the history, eh? Then you surely must know the Palestinian Arabs supported the Nazis and their leader Amin Al Husseini, the Grand Mufti of Jersusalem, was a close associate of Hitler and argued for the final solution. He also recruited Muslim SS units in the Balkans.

          And since you studied the history you must also know that the Muslim Brotherhood of which Hamas is Palestinian Arab chapter, is the Arab Nazi Party. When Hamas isn’t denying the Holocaust they are planning their own little bit of genocide.

          I don’t know how current your knowledge is but Mahmood Abbas, leader of the PLO faction wrote his Ph.D thesis on the myth of the Holocaust. Two of the perennial favorite works of literature among Palestinians are Mein Kampf and The Protocols of the Elders of Zion.

          The King David Hotel was British Military HQ. The attack was against the British not the Arabs.

          You see one of the problems when you blindly parrot left-wing anti-Semitic tropes is that there might be someone out there who knows a little more about the subject than your preprogrammed talking points. I do get where you are coming from. You want to kill Jews for the right reason while those evil neo ~Zs want to kill the Jews for the wrong reasons even if it looks like you want to do it for the same reasons.

          Pro tip: If you don’t want to lose you homeland don’t back the losing side a global war.

          Not the response you were expecting, eh?
