That is a correct early Sauer 38H magazine. Since it is a police gun, there is a possibility that the magazine is numbered to the gun. The magazine numbering was done by the police armorer, not the factory. It may be numbered on magazine body. That would be a huge plus. Good luck.He will check the serial numbers. Here is the picture of the mag he sent.
It's impossible to tell original from repro on a 38H from pictures. Bakelite has a slight 'ring' sound when you lightly tap on it with a wooden dowel. Plastic sounds like a dull tick. A hot pin will sink into the back side of the plastic, but won't on bakelite.Slide matches frame. I would just have to see if grips are original. Any pointers?
Thank you. Your enthusiasm is much appreciated, isn't that the fun of this hobby!Anything written, stamped, etc inside the holster? Sorry I'm so enthusiastic ;-)
