Sauer Western Six Shooter
2 Attachment(s)
A new family member found it`s way into my gun safe.

A Sauer Western Six Shooter in .357 Magnum, made by J.P. Sauer & Sohn in Western Germany.
Birthyear, according to the date code GK, should be 1968/1969.

As you can see on the pictures, it`s in very good, if not even almost new condition.

A larger amount of the company J.P. Sauer & Sohn is now Sig Sauer, that now only produce semi automatic handguns.

I talked to a guy at Sig Sauer in Eckernförde and he actually stated, that the western Sixshooter was the last revolvers they had produced, before switching to pistols.

I`ve taken the revolver to the range and it shoots very nice. I just have to do something about the sights. Although they are adjustable, I am hitting low. But I will wait, since this is my first revolver I own and I want to get used to it first.

But it`s a real beauty, I find.

Nice gun, congratulations. If you're shooting low, you might try different ammo. Some people say that if you change up the load it will change the point of impact.

Nice. I heard of them, but never seen one. A tip of my hat.

Och Jägermeister,

muddu mal bei egun reinschauen...sind da immer wieder mal drin, für sehr schmales Geld. Der hat keine 100 Euro gekostet und sieht aus wie neu.

Sorry guys, had to do this in german. Jägermeister and I sort of know each other from the german forums.........

Heavier bullets will raise impact.

These were very good revolvers for the price. I knew many Outfitters that supplied their guides with these guns. I believe they were using the Sauer Western Marshall in .44 Magnum not sure.
your .357 should shoot the 158 grs. bullets to point at 25 yards. Shooting low is a good thing. Shooting high can be a PIA to correct.:)

I had a Western Marshall in .44mag. It was a very well made revolver and also shot very well. Wish I still had it.

Here is my Hy Hunter Western Six Shooter, a .357 Magnum, ca. 1968 vintage, made by J.P.Saur & Sohn.

Its a work in progress. I had an Uberti brass trigger guard, and ordered a Hy Hunter brass backstrap which I fitted to the gun, and made the grips out of some walnut I had on hand.

I'm hoping to install a steel ejector rod housing and a Colt style hammer, and remove the Christy type firing pin.
