I got a call from a friend of mine on Friday. He has bee a gun collector for most of his life. Sadly, he like many people has been out of work for quite some time. He has a Mauser "Broom Handle" that I always had my eye on. He is willing to part with it for $800. It is in tact and complete and in very good shape...it is the 9mm model that was made during the war to match ammo size with the Luger. I really can't afford it but it is very tempting.
