C96 Mauser Reborn?

Michael Bane teased us a while back with vague hints of Taurus making a brand new C96 Broomhandle Mauser. Which would be very cool.

Today he has more-

So here's my question...what if a gun company was willing to build a stainless steel Broomhandle, available in .30 Mauser, the original cartridge, 9mm or...get this....357 SIG?

Would you buy it?

For between $1200-1500? That's the cost of a mid-range Kimber, by way of comparison...

If this appeals to you- and it must do- head on over to his blog to leave comments.

.357 Sig would be too hot for a traditional Mauser. Heck, prolonged use of 7.62x25 Tokarev ammunition will irreparably damage a C96!

If Taurus does it, great, but I don't expect them to do it.
