The Model 1896 was first patented on 11 December 1895. One Mauser photograph shows an early pistol with the date 15 March 1895; this date is probably that of the trial rather than the design. Apart from the use of a spur hammer and the chambering of the pistol for the Borchardt cartridge there is very little difference between this pistol and any of the later pistols.
