Luftwaffe Drilling M30 – 1941


This is a beautiful, cased M30 Luftwaffe drilling, one of the finest you’ll ever come across. The original finish is about 95% with excellent case hardening. The barrels/upper show minimal wear, but there is some thinning of the case hardening. The bores are excellent and shiny. The stock is in great shape but has been professionally repaired. The story on this gun is that an extended family member of the previous owner took it from a downed plane. You can see a large bulge/dent in the case, and the stock was partially broken in the fall. Barrel is dated to September of 1941. The case is original and shows obvious age/wear, but has lots of character. It includes a box of the rifle ammo, as well as a sling and cleaning rod/kit. The Sauer M30 drilling (in German, meaning triple-barrel combination rifle/shotgun) was originally developed by famous German gun making company J.P.Sauer & Sohn as all-around hunting weapon. Introduced in 1930, it was commercially available in several caliber combinations, sporting two side by side shotgun barrels (in 16 or 12 gauge) over one rifled barrel. In 1941, when Hitler’s Germany began military operations in Northern Africa, Luftwaffe (German Air Force) adopted Sauer M30 drillings as wilderness survival weapon for air crews, operating over vast North African deserts. It is 16g as well as 9.3x74R rifle ammunition. It must be noted that Luftwaffe bought Sauer M30 drillings outside of standard military procurement procedures, and all Luftwaffe drillings were made to pre-war commercial standards of fit and finish, and thus were rather expensive.


I have managed firearms retail and could not stand this aspect of it. When you receive a gun from me it’s been packed with care and arrives as your NEW GUN. One person handles each gun from the time it arrives until it leaves and that is me.
When a gun is sold it gets properly packed that day, by me with FedEx tracking sent to my client immediately. I contact your FFL FOR YOU, and handle all the paperwork.  California? No problem, I have been shipping there for over a decade. Canada and Australia- have sent many there, just ask for details. Buying a fine gun should be fun and exciting.  I don’t want to sell you one gun, I want your business for life and want your referrals from building trust.  I have been the largest seller of Caesar Guerini, Syren and Fabarms for the 5th straight year because of service and value.  This is my model and I hope you give me a call.  THANK YOU for reading.
