How about this one, real or fake?:

This one looks good to me if it's not a fake (given the asking price).  I like the style harness (although I don't see where the strap it goes through the metal loop toward the stock end where the wooden flap is that opens up to put the gun inside it--is that just not visible in the pictures?).

Not meaning to hijack this thread but there seems to be a lot of C96 expertise here.  I've decided I want one.  I'm looking for a shooter grade "Red 9" but I really don't know what to look for in terms of features, conditions etc.  I don't need or want a safe queen but I don't want to end up with a piece of Scheisse.  Can anyone point me at some good reference material or even web sites?
