C-96 Parts Explosion

This diagram, or something much like it, commonly apears with the parts numbered. However, the numbers aren't standardized and so are of little use. I haven't used numbers here. The part names I use are taken partially from an English-language version of the M-30 owner's manual, partly from J.B.Wood's Firearms Assembly and Disassembly, Part 1: Automatic Pistols, and partly from what I judge to be modern usage.
The vast majority of semiauto C-96s had the parts shown in the main explosion. Schnellfeuers were substantially different.

Cone Hammers and some early Large Ring Hammers had the parts shown as "early trigger subframe assembly" and "early firing pin". They also had a slightly different rear sight with a pivot pin (not illustrated).

Cone Hammers and Large Ring Hammers had the parts shown as "early lock assembly". The safety, rocker plunger, and lock frame (and of course the hammer) were different from later guns.

Cone Hammers, Large Ring Hammers, and early Small Ring Hammers had the "early ... extractor".
