I'm more put off by the silver finish, case colors for me. The inlays would look OK on a CC background. At 64K I won't be troubled!

I'd be happy to have it just the way it is. That is one of the more handsome germanic guns that I've ever seen. Its lines seem far different than a run of the mill Sauer. I like it, just not $64k worth, but that says more about my wallet than the gun.

I have a ca 1901 Sauer/V L & d Knock About that appears to have the same basic action. If so this s a back action lock, which it appears to be in the picture. The sear is mounted vertically on the plate & hinges in the middle. The sear notch on the hammer is on the outer periphery of the hammer giving the best possible purchase, ie farthest possible from the axle. Overall an extremely good design in my opinion.

The Knock About is of course nowhere near this Fancy.

I can take gold on blue in small doses, gold on coin, aah, no thanks.

And does anyone actually use cocking indicators?

Miller, sorry to hear of your health issues and I wish you all the best. Have enjoyed your posts here over the years I've been around. Hope to continue to enjoy them for some time.

I have an early Sauer sidelock as well, made on a similar action so it likely is very close to yours although mine is labeled as a Sauer. Remarkably svelte design. It's a 12 gauge and down around 6 1/4 pounds with 29 1/2" barrels. Honestly it carries like a 16.

It's a project gun so it will be a while before all is done on it but with new wood, and fresh finishes on the action and the Damascus, it won't be a $65000 gun but CJO tells me it will be likely as well made. LOL

BTW, It is CJO who has the Sauer Model 29 Meisterwerk. It is quite something. Even if gold isn't one's "thing".

Here’s mine. Miller is right, the lock internals are just about perfect. Notice mine has an intercepting sear. The gun is a 12 gauge from the 1890’s and the barrels use the shoe lump method of joining which is a miracle of engineering in itself. Oh, the case colors are original, fresh out of an ultrasonic cleaning.

Well e very best example can be seen here:http://www.germanhuntingguns.com/archives/archive-fruhauf-hendrik/
There is also a very big difference in a meisterstuck and meisterarbeid.
Cheers, Marc.

Nice looking gun Joe. Mine also has the shoe lump. It does not have the intercepting sear, the sear is vertical rather than sloped as yours & has a Doll's head rather than the cross bolt. Mine is also a project gun, missing the entire forend. It has a leather-covered cheekpiece which has a split, looks to be cork beneath it with the comb hollowed out to hold the cork.

Yes! the case colors are much better. I think something was lost in the translation, Magma vs. Magna perhaps? Still the 64K question remains.
