How about some 1899 CD's?? Would love to see a few. We certainly could use a change of pace.

Be careful with that thing, it does tend to hijack threads well!

A bit to my surprise, I am with Mike on this one - I don't have a single CD in my collection other than the movies. In fact, unless there's one I'm not remembering, I don't think I have ever owned a CD shocked

Rory,
Never say never. I have 130022 in 303 Takedown with a factory letter from JTC. I think the TD started around 1912.

Murray page 3-23 says starting after 1912 takedown was available on 22' & 26' round barrels. Was he wrong Cahoun? GW

Guys, note the smiley at the end.. was just giving Drew a hard time! Heck, wouldn't be surprised to find something that letters as an 1899CD with a shotgun buttplate.

Didn't notice the four point pattern on the but, I have the stocks from # 1140xx with that same pattern shipped to the same vendor March 18 1911. In my limited experience it seems many special order rifles show up in that 1911 time frame.

Curious to know if anybody out there has a lettered Model 1899CD
with 22" half octagon barrel. I have never knowingly seen one.
Anybody ?

I should have known! As I recall, I was suffering from Savage overload while visiting your fine collection. I apologize for the lapse in memory.
Curious to know if your letter identifies a 20" or 22" barrel.
Also, if you could share the serial number with an xx or via PM I would appreciate it. Thanks.
John
