The Sauer M38H was a pistol produced by Germany shortly before and during World War II. It was chambered for 7.65 mm (.32 ACP) cartridges and had a magazine capacity of 8 rounds. The Sauer M38H saw service in World War II as a sidearm for the German armed forces, namely the Waffen-SS.
The Sauer M38H was produced in 1939 exclusively for military usage. Therefore, it was made to a high standard. The M38H was good quality, with magazine safety (the gun would not function at all unless a magazine was properly inserted) and a breech lock connected to the slide. It saw some service with the Wehrmacht, but most soldiers were issued with the Walther P38 instead.
