Semper Fi (W.E.B. Griffith) - Mauser 98/96
Page 112: "...they were Broomhandled Model 98 Mausers, which fire 9mm cartridges full-automatic."
The Mauser 98 is a bolt-action rifle.
The Model C-96 Mauser Pistol fires the 7.63 cartridge. Most Model C-96s fire semi automatic, but a few had a selector switch, and even fewer had been converted to fire the 9mm Parabellum cartridge.
It's highly doubtful that the people attacking here would have had a 9mm full auto Mauser.
