J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH


J. P. Sauer & Sohn GmbH, commonly referred as simply Sauer, is a German firearms manufacturing company founded in 1751. It is the oldest firearm manufacturer still active in Germany.

In the 1970s, Swiss group and firearm manufacturer Schweizerische Industrie Gesellschaft (SIG) acquired and formed a partnership with Sauer, since Swiss laws prevented firearm exports, necessitating an international partnership. SIG Sauer GmbH was created from this partnership. SIG Sauer's early pistols would be influenced by pistol designs from both SIG and Sauer.

SIG sold Sauer & Sohn to Michael Lüke and Thomas Ortmeier in October 2000, and it is now a part of Lüke & Ortmeier Gruppe. Sauer currently still manufacturers hunting weapons, many of which are imported into the United States by SIG Sauer Inc of United States.
