    Default Rare 1939 J.P. Sauer Navy with walnut stock

    As some know, I'm a late war junkie- really love phosphate and corncobbed stock, the later the better. But, I really have played that to the end in many respects and am only missing some of the harder to find variations. So, I decided sometime back to try to get a complete collection of J.P. Sauer from 1934-1944. I've been pretty successful, and recently got this one in my quest to complete the J.P. Sauer collection. I think it may generate some discussion about Navy marked guns. First, it's hard to find a Navy marked gun, then to find a 39 Sauer in walnut is another bonus. You can tell it spent it's life wearing a muzzle cover, which I didn't get. Pics pretty much tell everything, so lets get to that:

    Default Wow

    very nice...can wait to see the others as well. One version of the navy markings. Most E/M k98s seem to be either mauser berlin or steyr.. 147/39 is tough to find and the navy marking makes it really scarce..

    Heer stocked KM gun? Is that the norm for Sauer, or was this diverted to the Navy contract after the rifle was finished?

    Nice gun, BTW.

    Not uncommon to find Eagle H proofed guns with Kriegsmarine markings like this. I see many Eagle M guns without fleet markings on the disc like this too, so it's a mixed bag. People like to think that things happened a certain way (only Eagle H guns went to the Army) but the real truth of the matter it's not that black and white.

    I had a 1936 147 bolt mm that was "N" marked on the disc and also H proofed.

    Default Navy contract

    JPSauer rifles early on seem to find their way into KM inventory.
    Have seen a number of 36-37 dated Sauers over the years with
    Naval property marks.

    Default JPS 1939 Kreigsmarine marked

    Great looking rifle Mike, It's nice to see that it also has the "H" marked stock.
    The followings are from my JPS 1937 Laminate with "O" markings and a "H" marked
    stock.
    Tks,
    Bob

    s/147, 1936 Eh and navy marked as well. It should be noted that in 39 JPS is known for EL in the "n" and "o" blocks.
