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.

Good gun alert: a nice J.P. Sauer sidelock drilling…

J.P. Sauer & Sohn Rare Sidelock Drilling 12 GA x 12 GA x 9x57MM
J.P. Sauer & Sohn Rare Sidelock Drilling 12 GA x 12 GA x 9x57MM

I’ve always liked drillings, probably because they seem so practical.  With one gun I could kill everything from a goose to a moose — especially if I was carrying the one you see here.

This  J.P. Sauer & Sohn sidelock drilling and its in 12 GA x 12 GA x 9x57MM. That’s pretty much all the firepower I would need for anything that walks or flies in North America.

If you’re thinking the same thing, you should jump on this one. At just $1995, it looks like it could be a steal.

Here are the full details on it from the seller:

J.P. Sauer & Sohn Sidelock Drilling: 12g x 12g x 9 x 57mm, 2 3/4″ chambers, 26 3/4″ bbls, 14 1/8″ LOP, 8 LB. Action and sidelocks are mostly patina with barrel blue starting to patina. Bores are excellent! Wood shows handling & use marks but remains free of cracks. Lockup is tight with no looseness on the hinge. Price: $1,999.99
