Mark,

Wonderful rig and a beautiful photo presentation. Glad you were able to add it to your collection. The holster is a beaut! What's next on the acqusition front? I am trying to find an early Nazi Marked FN Browning 1922--wtih a E/WaA613 waffen acceptance stamp. Lloyd

Mark,

That same gentleman you purchased the Astra 600 from had a DOUBLE E/37 marked Sauer 38H the first day I saw him at the SOS. I handled it and looked it over very carefully but passed. He wanted and told me got right around $1,300 for it. I checked back with him the next day and of course it had been sold. It was pretty nice and I had never seen one before in person. Since it is reported that only about 1,000 were produced I probably won't see another one anytime soon. I should have worked a deal but I was to busy chasing down some other "I got to have" pistols! I have a collector friend back east that told me he looked for five years before he even saw one. Oh well, I will keep my eye out for another one "hope springs eternal"!

Lloyd,

If you have a copy of

The Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly
Part 1: Automatic Pistols 2nd Edition by J.B. Wood

the photo's on page 474 show the author taking a double e/37 pistol completely apart....... yikes!

The double e/37's, along with the high polish Police E/F's, are surely the "Holy Grail's" of Sauer collecting. I've never even seen either, let alone being able to afford one for my collection, but one can always hope.

Hello Mark,
Holy cow, I didn't know you had your collection on the web.
Well done. I think your photo technique is first rate.
Somewhere along the line I'm going to get a glass table.
Again, terrific site. I know it is a lot of work.
