For comparison..a Lakesidetrader offering of a JP Sauer & Sohn...on this example..the lower crossguard step is barely but a breath ...basically the grip is almost sitting on top of a flat guard...definitely love these. Below is a side by side comparison of all 3 Suhl types......Chris76 Haenel.........Lakesidetrader JP Sauer......and a close up of a Kober.
I have seen each of these makers..use some of the lowest steps..interchangeable each other..and IMO all 3 must of relied on each other for production orders. Regards Larry

Wonderful example! The 'small issues' only add character IMO
Beautiful trio Larry. Thanks for the comparison pics! Always nice to see the early Suhl SA craftsmanship.
