6/25/21 - This is a rare JP Sauer Bar Pistol, manufactured in the late 1800's. The Bär is a double barreled revolver, with a square 4-chamber block. The barrel is market “Bär Pistol.” The chamber block is marked “Deutschland, 98382 PATENT”, and on the other side: “Belgien 134215, England, Russia and North America.” It carries the double crowned U Suhl proofmark. The chamber block is removed from the pistol, and loaded with 4 cartridges and replaced. The gun will now fire two shots double action. The button on top of the pistol is then depressed and the chamber block turned by hand. The remaining two shots can now be fired. The Bär was marketed as a pistol that combined the revolver’s reliability and the flatness of an automatic. When FN promoted the sale of their model 1900, the competition for the Bär pistol proved too strong and its production stopped. This one is all matching and has retained about 70% of its finish. Most of the wear is on the block, where there is also spotty patina. Areas of spotty wear and freckling here and there throughout. Comes with nice checkered grips - chip on the right side. The bores are nice with good rifling. The gun has a weak trigger spring - you have to pull up on the trigger to get it to reset.
