Okay Arch... just take a deep breath and start typing.
About six weeks ago I came accross a J.P. Sauer and Sohn drilling at the gun shop. I already have a BSS 20 guage on layaway so I pretty much put the drilling out of my mind. I should have the BSS soon and my attention is focusing on the drilling again.
It is not in very good condition. The outside of the barrels is rough but can be worked. I will have the shop gunsmith take a look at the inside to check for rust or pitting. To me it looks very dirty in there. This would be my project gun for the range. The serial number appears to be 183704.
My goal is to find a gunsmith that can work on this drilling. The first year would be for metal work then the stock and forearm the next. I am in Maryland and would like to find someone within driving distance (no more than 3 hours away). I am sure this drilling can be brought back to life. I think it is a 16 gauge although the shop has it marked as a 20 gauge. I hope it is choked M/F but can work with IC/M. The intended purpose would be for 5 stand, sporting clays, or wobble doubles. For the gun to look so beat up it feels very sturdy and locks up tight. This is why I feel it can be brought back to life and you can not have too many 16s in the safe.
Well, keep hope alive.
