I am starting up a new SxS redo project. J.P. Sauer hammer gun #87003 12b. This is a total project gun. As acquired some years back the stock had been sanded to remove all checkering and leave locks and grip cap proud. Forend wood does not appear to be original and is smooth without checkering. Release fits well and is not proud. Barrels appear to have been cut by +0.5". Right barrel measures +0.727 and left +0.724. This Sauer was produced for Johannes Mitschke in Riga, Latvia. I have added a few photos for identification. My goal is to correct the proud metal by deepening the inletting and cutting new checking in a Sauer pattern of the period. If you have a Sauer hammer gun of this period and could post a couple of photos of the checkering pattern I would appreciate it.

I would date this 1891 - 1912 based on proof stamps and no date code. Also no eagle nitro stamp.

Proofed in the final or assembled state. Interesting Sauer(??) process marks on the tubes forward of the flats. Looks to be script >>A<<s?? I do not believe I have seen them prior. Wears both the Quality & Range Tests stamps.

I haven't used veneer, but I once saw a stock that had been badly battered and heavily sanded that the gunsmith (a guy named Brian Burgin, now retired, who built a small frame custom Martini .22 for me) had wrapped a layer of veneer around the entire stock to bring it up to the correct size and hide the many flaws. It was spectacular and the seam, which ran along the bottom, was almost invisible. With a bit of grain painting at the joint, I'd venture a guess that you could make that addition completely invisible.
