    Default Sauer 38h problem..

    Hey guys, just picked up a sauer 38h at a local show last weekend and took it to the range yesterday... Went through about 30 rounds perfectly, but then the pin in front of the trigger guard underneath the muzzle just fell out leaving the slide release to hang down.. Has this ever happened to anyone else? How can I fix this? And where can I get the parts? Any help would be appreciated guy... Thanks!

    Try Tom Heller in St. Louis for parts.

    Are there any 38h gunsmiths I could send this thing to? I'm frustrated with it sitting in parts =*(

    The link is to a parts list w/ schematic at Numrich.

    From what I gather, you need #47, 48, & 49. The screw, spring and plunger that are the detent that holds the take down latch in either the up or down position. If the screw falls comes out of the gun,,the spring and plunger(detent) just fall free.
    Replacement of the parts is a simple drop them into the hole in the correct order and replace the screw(retainer). A bit of thread locker on the screw might be a good idea to prevent future loss.

    Numrich lists the screw as in stock,,the spring and detent as out of stock.

    Popperts Gun Parts lists all three:
    S00241 Takedown Latch Detent.................... 3.00
    S00242 Takedown Latch Detent Spring........... 1.50
    S00243 Takedown Latch Spring Retainer......... 4.00

    Find 'Sauer & Sohn Model 38' on the drop down menu and the 3 parts are the second page of the 38H listing.

    There's undoubtedly other parts places with the pieces you need.
