This is my favorite C&R pistol. It's an early production model Sauer & Sohn 38H with the rare double eagle/37 military acceptance proof mark. This pistol has a manual decocking/cocking lever that was unique and innovative for its time.

It does indeed, Swags. Very neat little pistol. Oaktree45 - are those Third Reich eagles above the 37?

AND, a great collector piece. A lot of folks would pay through the nose for that one! :yikes::bowdown:

My nephew has a similar one. His first pistol. It breaks down easily. He dated his to being made after the war as a "take home" pistol for the returning GI's. An it didn't like the JHP's I bought him!

Those two marks are the acceptance marks of the German Wehrmacht (armed Forces) of Nazi Germany. It is my understanding there were only 1000 of these pistols with the twin marks.
About the only thing good About Nazi Germany was their guns - over engineered, but but very well made. Just glad Hitler decided against semi-auto battle rifles until it was too late. That could have made things even more....interesting.
