I will post some pictures shortly. It went from a beat up pawn shop reject to a beautiful rifle / shotgun that I very much intend to keep until my old lady gives it away when I am gone. Hope I can remember how to post pics here!

Was that a factory paint job? or a dealer that did several of them?


I swear my 223/12 ga has the same paint job and I need to look at it. The odd thing is I bought it used in MN from a used gun shop and the dealer told me the guy used it for turkey hunting some other state because rifles are not legal in MN.

I've worked on a few of these and IIRC all of them had a standard slotted screw holding the buttstock. However, if there's one thing constant about Savage/Stevens combo guns is that every one of them is a little bit different and who knows if somebody got a long bolt at some point and used it. I'd get a nice bright flashlight and take a look.

I usually use a 3/8" drive socket with a large screwdriver point and a LONG extension. The socket fits the hole, keeps the bit centered and there's plenty of torque with the ratchet handle.

That is the standard camo pattern that Savage put on the plastic stocks and forearms on the 24s and 24Fs. The plastic stocks and forearms came in either black or camo on the 12 gauge guns and in black only on the 20 gauges guns.

Rifles aren't legal for hunting turkeys in NE, but a Savage 24 isn't a rifle if the rifle barrel isn't loaded and the CO doesn't find any rifle ammo in your possession.
