“EAGLE/37” WaffenAmt J.P. SAUER & SOHN Model 38H WW2 German ARMY PISTOL
Scarce 2nd Wehrmacht Variation with Holster!
Here we present a J.P. Sauer & Sohn Model 38H First Model (2nd Wehrmacht Variant) Pistol manufactured circa 1939 in Suhl, Germany with a production run from 1938 through the end of World War II in 1945 with approximately 200,000 examples made. The “H” in the model number indicates this pistol uses a shrouded hammer as opposed to the striker style firing of earlier Sauer models. This pistol was issued to the German Army and was a favorite of the Luftwaffe as it could be carried while parachuting behind enemy lines. The Eagle over 37 proof mark on the trigger guard is a Military acceptance mark indicating that this pistol was issued to the German Army instead of the police.
The Sauer 38H was produced in three basic models. The slide of the first model says “JP Sauer und Sohn” on the left along with the caliber. The second version says only “CAL 7.65”, and the third version omits the safety and the cocking/decocking lever. Towards the end of the war, weapons produced were simplified for quicker, cheaper production. For the 38H, this meant simpler markings, rough finish, and the elimination of features like the slide-mounted safety.
This one has a WaffenAmt 37 on the front of the left side of the trigger guard and an eagle N on the rear-right of the slide, rear-right of the frame, and on the barrel near the muzzle of the barrel.
