    I would it failed mostly due to the “magazine” and, more specifically, that it was made of aluminum, which was expensive at the time. An expensive, easily lost, critical part is not a feature for anyone except the manufacturer and, given shipping times, a huge problem for the shooters.

    As a side note – the US Military originally refused to adopt the C96 because they considered the magazines too expensive to be discarded.
