The sentence in the title supposedly means something like

「あなたの技術を見せてもらうかな」

I roughly understand what this sentence means as a whole but i'm having trouble parsing it.

I know that お手並み拝見 means: let's see what you've got; show me what you've got... accroding to jisho dictionary but i can hardly understand how it's used, example sentences show that it's ususually followed by the particle と so i'm guessing this て is another form of と ?

I also do not seem to understand what the ところ is doing here.

  • って is short for という. Taken together with ところ, the sentence means something like 'I guess it's time for you to show me what you've got', 'I guess I should say, "Show me what you've got."' – Aeon Akechi Nov 10 '16 at 19:37

One possible translation could be:

"Perhaps it's time to see what you've got."

「お手並み拝見・てところ・かな」

  • かな - shows doubt or suggestion, "Perhaps..."

  • てところ ⇒ というところ - the time or circumstance to do something, "...it's time..."

  • お手並み拝見 - to see what someone is able to do (sarcastically polite to indicate doubtfulness), "...to see what (you've) got"
