J.P. Sauer - Model 45 - 12g SxS Shotgun

J.P. Sauer – Model 45 – 12g SxS Shotgun

J.P. Sauer and Son is one of the world’s oldest gunmakers. Founded in 1751, they’ve been building all sorts of guns for a long time now. Some of these guns have been beautiful side-by-side shotguns.

The side-by-side shotgun you see here was probably made for the American market between 1910-1930. I love the scalloped action and relieved fences, and the engraving looks fantastic. Overall, it’s  very reflective of the kind of high quality that used to come out of Germany.

Outfits like Sloan’s and Von Lengerke & Detmold used to retail doubles like out of their sporting goods stores in New York City. This was probably an an upper-middle grade Sauer double back then — not the very best, but far from the bottom. It looks beautifully made ,and I’m sure it was quite expensive in its day.
