1043? One of William the Conquerer"s Lugers Obviously Jim meant 1943. And he is trying for my record of the most typos.

That would have been 1066 with the Norman invasion. Sorry about the typo. Just wait until you get old!! JIM

I would love some help! I just inherited a 38h with the serial number 400546. It has the eagle with the "N" underneath it and no mark on the front of the trigger guard. It has two magazines and a leather holster. The only other thing I know is that my grandfather brought it back from the war. I would love any additional information or year of manufacture. Thank you!

Your Sauer was made in late October 1943 and is a commercial variation. It was probably a private purchase Sauer by an officer. Does the holster have any identifying stamps or a manufacturer's name? Stay well, Jim Cate, author of the Sauer reference books.

Thank You Jim. Unfortunately holster does not have any stamps on it.
Trigger guard has an Eagle/C mark, i thought that makes this pistol police variation?

You did not mention the police acceptance (or any acceptance) in your original inquiry. Therefore I assumed it to be a commercial pistol. Thanks for the update.
Stay well, Jim

Hey all - discovered this forum searching for info on a s/n 510935. if you'd confirm that it falls into the post war US occupied time frame? I'm told that it was a GI "Bring Back" out of Concord, NC purchased in the 80’s from the family of the Veteran. Any details on the units and time frame that they were there? Resources appreciated.

This Sauer was assembled from remaining parts after the American GIs arrived on April 4, 1945. Several thousand of these were made as souvenirs for the GIs, as yours was. Your pistol will not have any Eagle N proofs on the frame, slide or barrel. It certainly could well be a "GI bringback" no doubt about that. Regards, JIM
