AUTOMATIC C96 Karabiner (Carbine) is a modern copy of the German Mauser C96 carbine developed early in XX century for hunters and travelers and based on Mauser C96 semi-auto pistol design. About 2000 carbines were made before the WWI. Main difference between the pistol and carbine: longer barrel, wooden forend for comfortable grasp and attachable wooden stock (unlike the wooden holster/stock used with the pistol). Removable walnut buttstock is dovetailed to the frame (so that the carbine, lacking a grip on the frame, could not be fired as a pistol when the stock was removed). Carbine has 10-shot fixed magazine, loaded from strip.
