yea I figured but I have been watching it at a shop for a couple of months and I think he wants to dump it, the safety doesn't bother me too much since I wouldn't fire it anyway, how hard would it be to find a replacement part to fix the safety? If I got it for around $200 do you think I would be OK? It also does have the black bakelite handgrips not the wood. Thanks again.

not too much given the condition. that broken safety really hurts it.

18 dates are very common in the t-94 world, but $200 is a bargian anyways, so get it while you can !
The loose safety is not really broken but just loose.

well I waited long enough they took the $200! Here are the pics, all of the other numbers on the firing pin and the slide match and the bore looks great! What is the proper way to release the slide from the hold open position? I can't seem to release it unless I drop the mag.

The only way to release the slide, other than pulling the magazine, is to depress the follower, while holding the slide. It can then be eased forward. Just like on a C96 "Boomhandle" Mauser.

Congrats on picking it up. That one will clean up real nice at a super price to boot Don Schlickman can make you a repro lanyard ring.

Thanks for the input guys, I guess the safety is just loose, I took it off and it looks OK is it just worn? Any way to fix it or does it just need to be replaced? Or is it the seer not pushing out far enough? Also, what do you think a fair value would be if I decided to sell it or trade it later on?

The safety can be fixed by bending, but I wouldn't try it. It'll most likely break. Don Schlickman can hook you up with a repro for shooting purposes. It's worth about $400.00. At a small gunshow, you might get $5-600.00. They don't turn up often at smaller shows, and people think they're rare.

Not rare at all. In fact you can find any number of them for sale everyday on a number of different auction web sites. Ugly yes, rare no but that is just MHO.
