If you have a copy of DGJ Summerf 2004, there are some very good photos of high grade Prussian Sauers in an article by Jeff Stephens. I had a 16 that was either a 40 or a 45. I copied the article in b&w, so the photos don't show all that well.

Indeed I have several copies of 2004 & 2005 as somewhere in there lies the serial number sequence guesses.

That's also one of Stephens' articles.

Fellows, Thank you all for the information on this old Sauer. Fedex emailed and said it would be tomorrow on delivery, so I’ll have to wait. I would like to post some pictures with an iPhone of the gun if someone would give me a crash course on how to do so. Sandlapper

I forgot to mention that the Sauer has chopper lump 3-Ring Krupp barrels and a blind square crossbolt as found on W. & C. Scott guns from the same period (1911).

The grades and prices remind me of the old Parker catalog I once saw.
All my Parker Repros are entry level and all the higher grades sell for the price of a nice home.
But they all handle and shoot the same.

That is the Westley Richards & Greener combo I believe.

If anyone wants to call up the GI ad, the # is 102017115. Pretty good pictures.

Hello Sanlapper, I’m a bit late to the party but wanted to say I just picked up a superb early Mod 17 in 16 bore, pretty much the exact same configuration as yours (obviously sans the engraving or chopper lump barrels).
It has 29 1/2 “ barrels of their best steel and the action is scalloped just like yours….I also have a Mod 29 Meisterarbeit in 12 bore.
These are some of my favourites….all phenomenal pieces, pm me if you need any additional info, also Jim Cates “ Sauer” book is a great source of information.

All best

CJ


The taste of poor quality lingers long after the cheap price is forgotten.........

CJ, Thanks for the information. When I have the Sauer in my hot little hands, I will reach out to you for your input. Just looking at all the details, it appears to be a Model XVIII sans the gold inlays, with maybe a little more scroll and fewer animals, on barrel wedges and floorplate than most of them. A little more English flavor than most. How do the the 16’s rank in production, as opposed to 12’s & 20’s, in your experience? Thanks, Sandlapper
