A couple of years,ago I picked up one in 22 mag over 3" 20 gauge. Somewhere along the line it had a receiver peep sight mounted on it.
I also found that Winchester makes a low velocity 22 mag ammo. I now have a combo for squirrel with the low velocity ammo or groundhogs with 22 mag.
I hope to have choke tubes installed in the 20 gauge barrel so I can also shoot slugs for deer.

WStrayer, hold everything. Why the choke tubes for slugs? I have the same .22 mag/20 gauge and it shoots slugs beautifully and only 4" lower than the mag barrel at 50 yards. I've never patterned mine, but I'm assuming that it is probably a modified choke barrel. They are rather desirable guns and messing with the choke will likely diminish the value.


My other auto is a .45

That's good to know. I've shot lots of slugs through full chokes. Slugs are softer than the choke is.

Ive use a set of older Weaver rimfire rings or a Williams 22/410 receiver sight for years on my various m24's. But if I didn't have them, I might consider a scope base listed on eBay as Savage Model 24 OU Shotgun Rimfire Perfect-Adapter™ Gun-Guides® that looks like it would allow a variety of scope and dot mounting options. I've never used or even seen these bases, but it might be worth looking into.

These $32 "Perfect-Adapters" look like the B-Sqaure adapters and the $11 Chinese knock-offs that I cited earlier in this thread.

In my limited experience, seven or eight 24s and variations, the ones with full length headed barrels far outshine those with separated barrels. A trigger job does wonders.

Just picked up a set. They may have enough bite, however they are cut for a flat receiver base, whereas the Savage 24 barrel is round.

Unless one has a mill, they will not work.

Hopefully, this saves someone else thirty-five bucks.

had one for years, believe it is 1951 or so 22/410, accurate and great for grouse, always better accuracy then my later models with separate barrels, which i got rid of.
Would not mind one in 22 mag/410

I use 11mm to weaver adaptors on my CZ 455 and Combo guns, they work really well and make it so you can mount your scope low.

After the first shot the rest are just noise.

I believe that the Leupole Rifleman .22 Rimfire 3/8" base/ring combo will work on Savage 24 rimfire combination guns with grooved .22 barrels. These are vertical split alloy rings with Torx screws made for installing scopes with 1" tubes.

#57405 - gloss black

#56533 - matte black

I've used these rings on several different .22 rifles with 3/8" grooved receivers, mostly Remingtons, but I have not used them on any Savage 24s.

I have verified Exchipy's earlier post. He mentioned Weaver Tip Off rings work, though his were an older set.

I can say, factually, that the new ones will fit. Weaver 49819. Weaver Classic Rimfire 1" Tip Off rings.

Thank you Exchipy! She'll be a squirrel killing machine come fall.

How did you mount the Williams peep sight? I’m interested in doing so, but my 24 is not drilled and tapped. Barrel grooves only. I assume the drill and tap is necessary then?

The old Redfield RE-24 will work if your front sight is attached to the barrel with a screw and the RE-24 still has the front sight riser and longer screw with it. Or, you could have your 'smith d&t the receiver for a receiver sight intended for a flat sided receiver, like the Remington 760.

The Williams WGRS-24 fits the barrel grooves, but it requires a higher front sight and unlike the RE-24, it didn't come with a riser.

I'm not sure what model my Williams receiver sight is, probably not the WGRS-24. I think it is something like 22/410. It is made to fit flush with the receiver like the Lyman 53D. Both this Williams and the Lyman require drill and tap, but neither require a taller front sight.
I like the cleaner lines and more solid mount of the receiver mounted sights, but that is just me. We all have our favorites for all kinds of reasons.

IIRC, the Savage 24 rimfires with the synthetic stocks and cross-bolt safety receivers have a rib on top of the barrel the same as the centerfire 24s always had.

Nice group with that gun.
I had a model 24 with a 222 over a 20 gauge, I had a squirrel that kept tearing my trash open, well one day I got tired of it and stepped outside with the 24, and he sat there on the ground at about 40 yards well I shot him with the 222 and he vanish, or should I say oliterated, Ethier way the squirrel problem was gone. It was pretty accurate, but never shot it for groups
