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?

somehow i learned that one way the feds can tell if a stock is original, pre 1945 is any tree cut before 1945 w0nt have a radioactive isotope in the wood. any wood from a tree growing after 1945 will have picked upa radioactive isotope from atomic blast test of that era, just sayn
