Attached is some info obtained from another forum site in Europe. The chap who posted it is known to me, is enthusiastic, also, well informed.....Here's what he said in November last year:
Sauer, one of Germany's oldest gun and rifemakers have been known for their fine guns. The only problem was that their marketing was hopeless and they always have been thinking that good guns will sell themselves.
Delivery times in Europe of up to two years for a rifle barrel; were not uncommon.
The result of all this is that a while ago, they had to move their production to the Blaser factory in Isny.
Now you can think of Blaser what you like, but at least they do know about marketing and that seems to have paid off for them.
Since a couple of weeks they (Blaser) have acquired www.sauer.de which formerly belonged to an obscure insurance company and they had to settle with www.sauer-waffen.de
They have launched a magazine and they actually have a contact phone number that you can call. (Until now all questions went via dealers, who on their turn were badly informed).
