Here is a new acquisition. Many thanks to sauerfan and Jim Cate who went out of their way to help someone who is ignorant of Sauers.

Ed,

nice to see, that you posted photos of your nice and rare police accepted Behorden! I guess, it will be nice to share Jim's ideas about your pistol with other collectors. Here is, what Jim wrote about this police accepted Behorden:

"Hi! I have examined Ed's photos and was very pleased to note that he has a nice Sunburst with a diamond variation Behorden Sauer. I certainly would admit that the "stamp" was very poorly done by the police acceptance officer. A Monday morning pistol ??? His pistol also confirms there were 2 different procurement offices within the Prussian Police establishment at the same time...even though that situation did not last very long. There are Sunburst K pistols that are later (in the serial number range) than his. For example, 214833, is a Sunburst K. Until this evening the earliest Sunburst / Diamond that I have in the database is 215030, but now it is obvious there were a few accepted before my earliest recorded example, number 215030. His pistol has the required adjustable front sight, and the magazine numbering looks very correct to me. The Diamond / Sunburst is a very difficult example to find anymore."

Ed, if possible, please ad a close-up of the "Monday morning" stamp!

Regards

Martin

Hi,
I thought I would add to your s/n data file. I have Behorden s/n 214787 and it is the sunburst diamond variety. I have had it for about three years and located it in Omaha Nebraska.

Dietrich,

Thanks! I was looking for one of the early military Sauer Model 38H
versions and found this Behorden. Still looking for that elusive 38H!
I have seen several 38H pistols( military, police and commercial) that were quite nice except for the grips. Grips would either be cracked, badly chipped or missing altogether. If there are replacement grips available in Germany.......
Take care!
