Mauser C96

The Mauser C96 is a German-made pistol which Van Helsinki uses to try and defend himself from 'Vladimir' in the fanfiction Van Helsinki: Before the Storm.

Van finds the weapon in a holster under the dashboard of a car stolen by 'Vladimir' in which he is being held captive. Van crashes the car, and takes the pistol to kill 'Vladimir', though he is unsuccessful, and has to be saved by Sophia.


Behind the scenes and triviaEdit

  • The use of the weapon in a car is likely a jab at Paul Reynolds, the actor playing Van Helsinki, as he had a Mauser BB gun toy which he claimed was his 'car gun' which he would store in a car if he ever became a secret agent.
