$325 is a good deal. The CD didn't come out till 1975, the 308 came out around 56-57. The "C" in your serial number is not the same as the "date Code Letters" . The date code is hand stamped on the front of the lever boss, where the lever hinges. It will be one or two numbers and then the letter, inside of an oval. Welcome to the club

Many thanks. The shop owner looked it up online and told me 1951. No worries, I wont be going back to ask for a refund anytime soon. smile It is going to be a good pickup gun for this fall.

Late 1978. Savage changed to alphanumeric serial numbers in 1968. You may be confusing the C with the lever boss code used from 1949 (A) until about 1971. The lever boss code was stamped on the front of the lever boss (the protrusion that the lever pivots on). It was in an oval that contained one or two numbers (the inspector code) plus a letter designating the year produced.

With Savage never say never.
For a copy of my book on Savage lever actions rifles send a check for $65 to; David Royal, p.o. box 1271, Pinedale, Wy., 82941. I will sign, number and inscribe the book for you.

The lever date code was no longer in use by 1978, so yours won’t have one.

Good buy!

If you are young and don't like your shoulder! I'd see if I could get him to sleeve it down to 22HP. Just joking, I've heard nothing but good stuff about JES.
