Hi Folks!

I haven’t been around Shotgun World for awhile. (Ever since my shotgunning buddy, Sluggo, moved, I’ve be back to my first shooting love, rimfires.) But today, I stumbled into a little 12 gauge I couldn’t pass up …

It’s a J.P. Sauer & Sohn side-by-side, serial number 252957, and beyond that, I couldn’t tell you much about it. So let me show you some, hopefully, useful details …

I’m guessing from the “Sicher” safety that this gun was produced for the domestic (German) market. Correct? But when would that have happened? And what grade was this model? Some parts _appear_ to be case colored, or is that just aging bluing? Heck, I don’t even know how the barrels are choked.

Any thoughts would be welcome. Thanks for having me back!
Dave

Yes, inland German and passed thru the Suhl proof facility in May of 1930. Overhanging scear so Kerner-Anson Body Action which was a staple of Suhl mechanics. Constriction in both tubes but you will have to pattern it to determine the percentages. Blade cocking indicators.

Thanks! Any idea as to what grade/level of engraving this might be?

THAT'S what those things are. Doh!

Thanks again!

Looks to be in very good shape.
Excellent field guns, usually very light for the gauge, although they made heavier guns purpose built.
I like a 6 1/2 to 3/4 # 12 gauge & long barrels as well as 29 1/2” barrels, 6# weight for a 16 ga. These German market guns were usually tightly choked and with short chambers.
Spreaders and RST loads are an option unless you want to open the chokes. I would not use high pressure shells and definitely no steel.
