A predecessor of the Roth-Steyr pistol, the Roth-Sauer is built around a long recoil action, similar clip-loaded internal magazine in the grip, and utilizing the proprietary 7.65 mm Roth ammunition. Fixed blade and notch sights, the Sauer address on the top rib, "PATENT-/ROTH." on the frame above the chamber and the Sauer logo at the rear. Fitted with a knurled cocking knob, smooth trigger, and checkered grips with raised Sauer logos.

Rating Definition:

Very fine with 75% bright original high polish blue finish, clear legible markings, areas of high point and edge wear, scattered surface scratches and nicks, and faint traces of a darker brown patina. The grips are also very fine with some small smoothed spots on the otherwise well-defined checkering and some small dings. The trigger return spring is broken, otherwise, the pistol functions fine.
