Need help gentlemen,

Just inherited this piece when my dad died. Using the serial number 97583 and the proofs, I can't tell what I have using the available data online such as that found on Sauer Fine Gunshttp://sauerfineguns.blogg.se/engli ... story.html. Appears to be post 1893, crowned U, and pre Model 25 of 1915. Any assistance with dating and valuation would be greatly appreciated for insurance purposes. Thank you.

Hi haznavy,

like already mentioned in the other thread: manufacturing date is around 1900. A more precise date can’t be given, as there are no records below SN 200,000 in the Suhl Archive. But 1900 is a good guess based on some observations.

Can’t say, what model number it is, because model numbers weren’t used by Sauer before 1906 approximately. In the 1906 Sauer catalog this model isn’t listed any longer (the model XIX with outer hammer listed in the 1906 catalog is different). It’s still shown in the 1903 Sauer catalog, but without a model number.

Anyway, a nice drilling exported to the US. These having English language legends are rarer than the normal drillings with German language legend.

Can’t tell from the proof calibre (181 = 181 gauge) what calibre it really is (rifle barrel), but I guess (!) it will be eigther a 9.3x72R or a 9.3x72R S&S (totally different calibre).

The shotgun barrels are in 12 gauge with a short chamber (2 9/16”).

The two large sxs crowns are Sauer markings for marking excellent quality.

Regards

Martin
