*The blowback on the C96 CO2 pistol functions the same as it does on the firearm. There is no slide. The only thing that moves is the bolt. The purpose of the bolt's movement is to cock the hammer (because this is a single-action pistol).


How long have you waited to get a C96? This BB gun is incredibly realistic. Load it with CO2 and steel BBs, pull back the charging handle on the end of the bolt and commence to shootin'! Airgun writer Tom Gaylord tested this gun, and he was shocked at the great accuracy it delivered. Click the link elsewhere on this page to read all the buzz about this great pistol!

This BB gun replica of the legendary German pistol will not disappoint you! There were several variations of the C96 (also known as the "Broomhandle Mauser"), and this is a copy of the Schnellfeuer (German for fast or rapid fire) version of the C96, which was produced from 1932 to 1936.

Things I liked: Can't beat the steam-punk charm of its looks. Fairly simple operation. Not bad accuracy for a BB gun when using a rest.

Things I would have changed: Kinda like my prom date: from a distance looked good, but up close... Not so much. all metal version might be worth it. Wooden grips would be worth the extra cost.

What others should know: A good looker overall, and ok performer. The sights are authentic and therefore kinda hard to see. You get the trigger you pay for. It's OK for plinking, but if you're used to target triggers this one may frustrate you. But if you're buying it for fun, go for it. Plenty good for cans, and you will love hearing "What the heck is that?" when you show it to non-shooting friends and family.

Things I liked: Easy to load and fun to shot.

Things I would have changed: It would be nice if the action would stay open when the last BB is fired. A little more metal for weight. The full auto model weighs more, but cost more.

What others should know: The Lugar is more accurate, the action stays open when the last BB is fired and it weighs more. But it cost more!! Both are fun to shot.

Things I liked: A very nice replica gun that functions for the most part like the real thing (minus the fully-automatic fire option). It makes a good addition to your collection if you can't afford the fully auto version.

Things I would have changed: My major complaint is the magazine. The sliding cover for the bottom half of the magazine seems to be made of plastic or a light metal and I found it had a tendency to drop down when firing. In some cases I actually just left the cover off when shooting. Also, at first I had a bit of a problem with puncturing my CO2 cartridges (which, unlike other guns, are installed in the magazine); however this may be a defect in my particular gun or oiling the CO2 tops (see below).

What others should know: After shooting the gun directly out of the box I noticed that it tended to jam frequently, however after lubricating it thoroughly the problem disappeared. So my suggestion is to oil the gun well before firing it. Also,at first I had a lot of problems with CO2 cartridges not properly being punctured, but this was probably due to the manuals suggestion of oiling the nozzle end of the CO2 cartridge. When I stopped oiling the top of the CO2 it the problem greatly diminished. [Note: my accuracy didn't fair as well as other reviewers but this may have been due to the fact that I was firing my gun in sub-freezing conditions.]

  • Daryle Wayne from Canada asked:

    So when will additional magazines be available?

    • Erika from USA:

      Hopefully soon. Once they are available information will be put on the site

  • Michael from USA asked:

    Does the blowback function cock the hammer (after initial charging), or does the hammer need to be manually cocked for each shot?

    • Rob from Canada:

      Hey Michael , You were right the first time. After the initial manual charging , the blowback breech/bolt then automatically cocks the hammer each time the pistol is fired. It's a semi-auto action.

  • Leon from USA asked:

    Is this a full metal construction bb gun?

    • Daryle Wayne from Canada:

      Just received my M712 and it IS FULL METAL, with the exception of the mock wood grips.

    • Richard from USA:

      No, the whole gun is molded of black plastic.

    • Charles M from USA:

      I just received mine. It does not appear to be full metal. The barrel and internal mechanisms appear to be metal, but the outside cover feels like plastic.

    • stephen from Canada:

      I put myself on the email alert for this one. It seems to be full metal. Google c96 airgun explorer. Stephen
