    Trying to identify Prussian Daly

    I am trying to identify a Prussian Charles Daly 12ga SXS. Barrels are marked J.P.Sauer &Sons and Krupp-Essen, side clips, side cocking indicators,double triggers, extractors, fine scroll engraving on top, bottom and sides. I was told it was built about 1890.
    I Have pictures, but do not know how to post them, you can contact me at

    thanks

    Good to see a post in this section. 108xx would date to circa 1904 and may have been in the 1st batch of non-Lindner boxlocks with upper & lower scears that S,D&G imported.









    Kind Regards,

    Sauer's Wildmann trademark on the forward lug. I wonder if Lindner or any of his subcontractors added any effort, or, or if any mechanics at Sauer contributed any effort to Lindner's offerings.

    Kind Regards,

    Thanks for posting the pics Rainey! No other marks on the barrels except for eagles,ser#,and the 228U, which may be a date stamp.

    The 228U is either a house number or assembly number. I took a gander and the block of Sauer boxlocks with upper & lower scears with Daly's name may have begun with 106xxx.

    Kind Regards,

    Schoverling, Daly & Gales imported and cataloged many guns made by Sauer & Sohn. Have a look into Jim Cate's book "J.P. Sauer & Sohn, Suhl-Waffenstadt", pages 223 - 258 show guns similar to this one. On pages 267 - 333 he lists many serial numbers of Sauer - Daly guns, several marked "made in Prussia". The book is available from the GGCA Bookstore on this site, order number B095.

    Received and Email from Jim Cates, he says it is a Model 40 built 1911-12, others feel it is 1903-04 production. I am wondering if it was some kind of "special" that was pulled and upgraded.
    All thoughts are appreciated !
