That would be an irreversible change to the gun, hurting it's collector value. It's easy to do to make it shoot, but a stickler will notice and consider it bubba'd.

Hi Billy,

I totally agree with "mapsjanhere": better to amend the firing pin. Changes in the original breech block isn't a good idea for my opinion.

Martin

Ok thanks guys. My coworker friend now has the gun and says it will fire when he gives it back to me. Last I talked to him, he brought down the tip of the pin to fit the hole. Next will be cutting the slot. Then a cleaning and lubing, And THEN... hopefully a bang! Couldn't have gotten close to this far without your help Martin!

Hello,
I have got the Sauer 1913 model with number 132xxx. It was founded in Preussen territory (Memelland) and this gun is in very bad shape, it does not work. There is regular signs "Crown/N" , J.P. SAUER & SON, SUHL, PATENT - thats all. I'm interesting - what the year it can be made?

But I'v got the inspiration to buy the Sauer like this one and found similar one in Germany witch number 62xxx - what the year it can be made to?

Thanks

Hi Jeremias,

it isn't easy to date a Sauer 1913, as there are no records at the Suhl Archive ragarding production figures/years. Based on observations, I'd date a 132xxx SN with app. 1922 to 1924.

A SN 62xxx was made during WWI and will have been made in 1916/17.


Regards

Martin

Sauerfan, I spoke with Dad a few months back, man was I ever messed up on the serial number and production date! It's actually 159xxx, probably 1925 to 1926. At any rate, here's a couple pics:

Hi Avenger,

yes, a SN 159xxx will have been made in 1925/26. BTW: one of the very last 1913s made, as the model 1926 started at 160xxx (with an overlap - some 1926s have SNs in the 159xxx range, while some 1913s have SNs higher than 160xxx).

Regards

Martin

JP Sauer & Sohn 7.65

I have what appears to be the Mdl 30, no slide lock in the trigger guard, it is on the left side of the frame and locks into the slide when it is pulled back also doubles as a safety. the serial number is stamped on the right rear 199XXX Crown with and "N"under it on the end cap. The firing pin has been replaced and did not work, hanging up on the cartridge in the magazine after the first shot. Looking at it I found that whoever made the firing pin made it too short, so now I am looking for a proper firing pin. No Slots in the pin. a new trigger spring woul be nice as well as the original has a couple of coils broken. Other than that it is in excellent shape. Can anyone here point me in the right direction for the parts and perhaps give me a little background on the item. My father took it off a German Office in WWII, but there are no German markings on it. Any help appreciated.

Sauer Model 1930

Thanks Martin.

Your pictures helped me ID my pistol as a Sauer & Sohn Model 1930 and not the Borhorden. My is S/N 195XXX. Any idea when it was made? Are there any production totals of the 1930 vs. the 1930 BM? It looks to be complete but may have had some work in the the front sight is not the round 1/2 moon but a very small shark fin. The Mag is also not marked and looks to have been made by cutting a longer one down. If it was not for this tread I would not have figured it out.

Thanks
Kevin
