16 gauge J.P. Sauer & Sohn hammer shotgun

16 gauge J.P. Sauer & Sohn hammer shotgun

Here’s a great looking hammergun that just hit the market. It’s a 100+ year old J.P. Sauer & Sohn, and it looks like it’s in super original condition. Check out all the color on the action and the great figure in the French walnut stock, too.

With its cheekpiece, sling swivels, and horn triggerguard, this this double is very Germanic. But thanks to the English-style, straight-gripped stock, it still looks sleek and elegant.

Here’s more info on it from the seller:

 16 gauge J.P. Sauer & Sohn Double Barrel Hammer Shotgun: This is one of the finest original-condition Sauer & Sohn hammer guns that you will ever see. Features a bar-action, rebounding locks, pierced horn pistol grip, horn butt plate with Orion logo and Bernard Damascus barrels. Full-coverage acanthus leaf engraving in the Arts & Crafts style with locks signed “Louis Delp Darmstadt”. Table has all Sauer trademarks: Large crown, small crown, S&S with crossed rifles and crown, Orion figure and Gothic S. We date this gun to the late 1870s to late 1880s. Shows no actual use and only very minor signs of storage with a few slight dents to the stock and a slight scuffing on the right barrel. We are convinced that this gun has over 95% original, untouched finish. It has been held in the same family for three generations. A perfect candidate for any Concours d’Elegance in museum quality for a very favorable price! 29 1/2″ bbls, 2 1/2″ chambers, Chokes: Cylinder & Mod, 14 1/8″ LOP, 6lb. 6oz. overall. Price: $3,449.99

    this gun is not as old as you state it is, as the under barrel proof marks werent required in germany until 1890 or 1891. Im guessing early 1900s

    I’VE JUST LOOK AT A SUPER JP SAUER/SOHN DOUBLE SET. A 16/20GA 30″ BARRELLS AND A PAIR OF 16/410 27″ BARRELLS NO.
    –11/–12 SO I KNOW THEY GO TO THE SAME GUN. WHAT I DIDN’T KNOW WAS THAT THE COMPANY MADE DOUBLES SIDE MY SIDE IN TWO DIFFERENT GAUGES ON THE SAME BARRELL. IF YOU KNOW ANYTHING ABOUT THIS , WOULD YOU PLEASE EMAIL ME. THANK YOU VERY MUCH. TOM
