I need help. I need a few parts for my pistol but all of the usual sources are out. I need two grip screws and a de-cocking lever spring. If no one knows of sources perhaps you could supply measurements/desriptions of the parts so I could try and fabricate something that will work. Thanks in advance.

For a good looking Mod 38 grip screw, also for the Mod 1930, get Browning HP grip screws and grind them to the proper length. They fit perfectly, and look right. I've done this with several of my valued Mod. 38's, and even for a Behorden, when the original screws are too buggered to use. It's a compromise, I know, but it makes a otherwise fine Sauer look like it should.

I had to have that spring replaced (made from spring wire stock) by my gunsmith. He very carefully measured and recorded the dimensions of the original from another customer's pistol. I am certain he would help you.

Try contacting Robert Garrett of Northern Virginia Gun Works, 7518-k Fullerton Road, Springfield, VA 22153; Telephone: 703.644.6504. Best wishes.

Thank you for all of the responses. Thanks to you I have found all of my parts, and used the Browning HP grip screws as replacements. Thank you all.

Sauer,

Thanks for the info on grip screws!

I have been looking high and low for a pair without luck. I found a set of original grips for my police e/f 38h but no grip screws. The vet who brought the gun back put a set of the see-through plastic grips on the gun post war. Now my gun will be complete.

The 'see thru' grips were probably made from plexiglas...that was a real 'cottage industry' among the GI's. They would put gold foil or photos of nudes under it and think it was really great!

They also made a bunch of 'clip on' aluminum watch bands from aircraft aluminum. I even heard one guy pontificating that he only used Messerschmidt Plexiglas and Aluminum as it was better than ours!
