    Sounds like you have a JP Sauer built in 1943 or 44 with a left over Borsigwalde receiver. Sounds like an interesting variation. Pictures will be necessary to help determine anything else. Welcome!

    You paid too much for it is all I can say from the info provided. How can I tell? Your wife is on your back about it.

    Oh brother! Totally overpaid! Not sure who's selling rifles like this for $195 in 2019 but congrats to you. Love the CG Haenel supplied barrel and would like to see a full photo spread on this when you get a chance.

    That, with the e/359 and cursive code, looks more like an AC 43 to me. Walther would be the maker.

    You would be correct in that Walther supplied the receiver. It was originally destined for MB but diverted to JPS for assembly. I have ax 41 c block with the same single e/359 in the same exact spot.

    It’s hard to make out but it’s actually just a standard script 43, it does look to possibly be an example that didn’t get final polishing work but it’s hard to make out in that photo.

    You are right, it's a standard Sauer & Sohn. I would say late 1943.
