Default Sauer Western Six Shooter

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.

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.
