J.P. Sauer 20ga. EJECTORS, FIGURED WOOD, 6lbs. 2oz., LOTS OF CONDITION
J.P. Sauer & Sohn have been makers of fine firearms for nearly 3 centuries and have produced some the most ornate, fantastic shotguns you will find. This little ejector 20ga., serial number 28294, is one of their less ornate guns, but is nicely balanced, German engineered, and in excellent original condition. Weighing just a tad over 6lbs. and balanced right on the hinge pin, it is the perfect bird gun for the upcoming season and a VERY AFFORDABLE, well made ejector 20 bore. This is a gun made in the 1950’s (educated guess) for the American market and has very nice walnut stocks, good dimensions, and is an attractive gun you can be proud to own.
The 26” barrels retain 99% blue, mirror bores, choked LM/F (.013/.027. can be opened to your specs for $70 per barrel), internal bore diameter .621 right, .627 left, minimum wall thickness of 39 thousandths, no dents or major scratches, 2 ¾” chambers, tight ribs and barrels that ring like chimes, single ivory front bead, clear sharp lettering, ejectors super strong and timed to perfection, barrels tight on breech face and hinge like a new gun, a great set of barrels with plenty of strength for modern loads.
The receiver has a gracefully scalloped back, nicely hand engraved, retaining 90% case color, excellent screws, action tight, triple locking with double underlug bites and Greener cross bolt, side clips, cocking indicators, locking screws on primary action screws, double triggers, trigger guard retains 90% blue, all in excellent mechanical condition. This is a “fully optioned”, German engineered boxlock action with all the bells and whistles.
The butt stock is nicely figured European walnut with all of the oil finish still strong, excellent checkering, no splits, cracks, or repairs anywhere, cheek piece for right handed shooter that is very comfortable while shooting, Pachmyer Decelerator pad, really superb wood to metal fit, 14 3/8” LOP to pad, 2 5/8” drop at heel, 1 5/8” drop at comb, neutral cast (can be bent to your specs within 10 days of purchase for about $180), just a beautiful stock and forend.
This is an exceptional gun at an affordable price. If you consider the cost of any graded American vintage double in 20ga. with ejectors in this kind of condition you would pay more than twice as much money as you would on this fine Sauer. Here you get all the bells and whistles from a world renowned German shotgun maker in a finely balanced, aesthetically pleasing package ready for generations of pleasure and service.
