Post your serial number, XX last two numbers. If their is one also post the lever boss code. Found on the lever boss front , just above the screw that hold the lever onto the gun. Might need a magnifier to read, is within a stamped oval. GW

Murray's has a rough guide up through 1949 at the back. Not extremely accurate, but close enough. From 1949 through 1970 you can get a year by the LBC code. After 1970, gotta come here.

Like the others wrote, Jerico... give us the rifle's serial number and, if available, its Lever Boss Code ("LBC")... and one or several of us will probably be able to give you the information you seek.

It is generally felt that the LBC is "THE" most accurate way to determine the year of manufacture of the Savage Model 99s.

However, without the LBC, determing the year of manufacture gets a bit tougher due to an inter-mingling of various series of the rifle's serial numbers in some years.

If you wish to know the rifle's value and/or model, we'll need to know its condition and features along with the LBC and serial number. Pictures always help too. smile

It is a 300 of course, just found out it was made in 1959.
Another friend bought it already.

59 huh?

Would be interesting if it was an early 99E. Was it checkered?

What is making you say the stocks are mismatched? Just color?
