just received photos of a scary Sauer which currently is offered for sale. Somewhere here in Europe. It was described as a "Sauer Behorden, SN 155,116, non-matching grips, German markings WaA63, reworked".
What is true: it is reworked and the grips ar non-matching (FN grips). The rest ....
1/ it is no Behorden, but a Sauer 13, 2nd variation
2/ the serial number is wrong (would match a Sauer 13 3rd variation), seems to be a 2nd variation of the WWI period – and it seems, there is a remainder of an Imperial acceptance marking just behind the crown/N Nitro proof.
And – best of it – the Wehrmacht acceptance markings!
Hopefully, nobody will be fooled by this Frankenstein monster!
