This weapon has been suggested many times in the past. I suggested it in a thread over two and a half years ago, before I had joined the development team, and it has been brought up gain many times since then (I am not claiming to be the first one to suggest it, btw). It isn't particularly helpful to us to have the same suggestions made over and over--we have heard them all, by now--but it doesn't do any real harm either. Also, it gives people a chance to discuss interesting tidbits of info about the history of different weapons and vehicles.
[quote=FuzzyBunny]the name comes from the large wooden butt that clipped onto the grip (and also served as a holster.)
The name actually comes from its handle.
The main characteristics that distinguish this pistol are the magazine forward of the trigger, the long and protruding barrel, and the handle shaped like the end of a broom handle, hence the nickname of "Broomhandle."
Anyways, yeah I would really love to see this gun, as I always wanted to suggest it. Btw, you guys are right about SS using it cuz when I was still in Russia, I saw a lot of WW2 movies which included this gun and it was mostly used by like rebels and stuff like that. Here is a suggestion, how about giving it to Russians!

Take a good look at a C96 with the butt attached. Does it remind you of something?

I inherited a Mauser C96, with wooden stock, clips and all, so if you need detailled pictures of something just tell me :)
just an idea, you could add it as a kind of "cookie/present" im sure both armies were not adverse to soliders bring some of their own guns they may have had, before the war. If a civilian owned a hunting shotgun or rifle it could be on a rack somewhere, or if it was a gun owned by a solider it could be in a barracks next to somebodys bed or on a table. by the way another gun you could add, that was widely used by the german police preWWII was the Walther Model #8.
only proble with this idea is, in my readings on the #8 i have found a small ammount of information about a gun ban? when WWI ended it sounds like they collected everything, is this true??
McGibsfun fact: the c96 is also han solo's heavy blaster pistol.
ZOMG yea haha. i watched star wars first before any ww2 movie (as ANY well-reared child should have) and later when i watched old ww2 movies, or other movies, id see that gun. id be like, WTF! HE HAS HAN SOLO'S PISTOL! RUN AWAY!!! HERE COMES THE LAZERS!!!!one!!!1!! took me awhile to realize that it was an actual historic gun, and not a cheap director using plastic star-wars toys as guns in movies.

Here's another one:
Starship troopers Morita rifle:
Yes, the Morita was actually designed on top of the latter. Best and kewlest gun idea ever, if you ask me.

Ok, but it'll take a while until I can upload it as I don't keep the gun here.
edit: I attached a similar picture I had on my PC for the meantime.
