Thank you much for the info Milsurp!

I'll be sure to check the firing pin as I really do want to shoot this.

Any recommendations on a good handload for these?
I donít have a load for .30, I just donít shoot it enough to load for it. If your pin is original it will be the solid type, an occasional shooter would probably be fine, especially using hard primers, but it only takes one piercing to take out the breach on what is now over a hundred year old pistol. The numrich repops are fluted, as well as the pins from Jack First. All original Mauser pins are fluted as well, but they are getting pricey.
