Everybody to their own but metallurgy and age is a big factor on the weapon condition and future life utility..This way too pricey and risky buy in my opinion
Metallurgy of mauser, 100 years back was much better than what it is today of Ashani.

To me it is speaking blasphemy when one recommends Ashani to a gent looking at a Mauser C 96, more so when this piece of advice was not even sought by the person in his post.
Did I mention the paucity of restorative skills in contemporary Indian gunsmiths

Perhaps with your old age and experience you should know better to appreciate really OLD and CLASSIC THINGS
That's a pretty low blow. Have you run out of arguments apart from waving the "classic" card to convince a newbie to part with his money for a pistol you haven't examined yourself?
Both ngrewal and nagarifle shoot far more than the average Indian
