How was Saito saved?

Cobb died, went into Limbo, struggled to remember why he was there, was reminded when Saito showed him the spinning top, used the memory it also triggered in Saito to persuade him to join him as a younger man (i.e. return to reality ... or at least to a different dream level).

We never see the gun used, but the presumption is that Saito shot Cobb, then himself. Because both men recognised the unreality of Limbo, they were able to pass out of it without losing their minds. 

There is also the possibility that he wasn't saved, that Cobb and Saito just entered another dream level, and not reality proper. 


Edit: Cobb didnt die. He was already in limbo along with Ariadne and Fischer. Everything else is correct.
