Looks nice! I believe a 3rd variant model 1913 before the additional safety was added. Probably exported since country of origin is marked on it. I have one in the 142k serial range that has the additional safety. I got really lucky on EBay someone had an original mag not knowing what it was for. Got it extremely cheap.

Your Sauer is one of the earliest examples having the rear sight acting as a retainer for the end cap / cocking knob. Everything else in your descriptions is normal for the Model 13 variation. The interior numbers are 'inhouse' numbers that were used after all parts fitted normally and before the actual serial number was applied. It appears to be a very nice example of an early Sauer pistol. Jim Cate, author of the Sauer reference books.

Sorry, 132871 is the correct serial number and is a perfectly normal 1913 of that era. Sorry for the confusion. The internal numbers are assembly numbers. Regards, Jim Cate
