I have nothing under that name, but at one time there were a number of German made copies of the SA, mostly in .22 but some in CF calibers. Some were reasonably well made, but others were made to a price (low) and were, to put it mildly, not of the best quality. Some used frames cast from zinc alloy.

I would recommend having a gunsmith look at the gun and if it seems OK, I would fire it but stick to .38 Special loads.

Since Suhl was in the DDR, that gun might be a recent import, and should have an import marking on it. The importer should be able to provide more info.
