Yep.

357 mag isn't all that common either, but I would say the 357 Max is rare. Did they even catalog those 2 calibers over the 410? Can't say that I have ever even heard of one...

If I could only have one, I'd have a 22 mag. JMO. Others may differ.

I think that the least common version of the Model 24s is the 24VS in 357 MAX over 20 gauge..

Savage 24s chambered in 357 MAX, 357 MAG, 22 Hornet, and 17 HMR seem to be a lot less common than those chambered in 222, 223, 30-30, 22MAG, and 22 LR.

The rarest caliber, without a doubt, is the .357 MAX.

And the rarest caliber in the rarest model would be the Savage 24VS satin nickel finish, 20 inch barrels, cylinder choke, hardwood furniture and additional pistol grip. Made and catalogued in 1983.

And the .357 MAG or MAX were only offered over 20 gauge, was never made over .410.

In that pic somewhere is a .357 Mag over 20 and a .357 Max over 20.

The .357 Mag is a 1979 near as I can figure, last year of the scalloped receiver. I never tried to date the .357 Max, was just happy to have found one.

I have the 24V's in every caliber except the .22 Hornet, could never find one. So maybe that is the rarest one? I dunno, but I still think the .357 Max is the rarest.

I have long wondered why Savage didn't carry over the monte carlo style stock from the 24Vs wood to the plastic stocks on the 24Fs.

Tripped over a 357 Max over 20 last year, practically stole it but I don't feel bad.

Worst part is trying to find shells for it, been shooting 357 mag out of it but only about 5 shells. Found a box of 18 Maximum shells now so I'm good, you can use 357 Mag dies to reload maximum.

I've got 300+ new Remington 357 Max brass in the classifieds because I have concluded I don't need to keep looking for the rifle.

Probably far from a rare chambering, my 24H-DL .22 mag/20 gauge has the silver colored receiver, trigger guard and gold trigger like the third one from the left of Wink_man's picture. I haven't paid attention to the Savage 24 used market, but I'm remembering that most of the 24's that I've seen have the blued receiver. Seeing only that one silver one like mine in Wink_man's post has me wondering if mine is a little out of the ordinary? Thanks.


My other auto is a .45

May not be a rare chambering, but the "DL"'s with the brazed barrels are highly desired, especially with the silver receivers. Extremely accurate also because brazing the rifle barrel full length to the shotgun barrel makes it very stiff.

I have 2 in there, one with a replacement trigger guard, both 1967 J DL's. 67 was the last year of the silver receiver, in 68 the J DL's went to the standard black receiver.

H DL's preceded the J DL's and I assume yours has the selector switch on the receiver not on the barrel? If so, it would make it 63 or earlier, I believe in 64 they went to the selector in the hammer.

Value wise the gun is worth a good chunk of change they are highly desirable as I stated earlier. I couldn't give you a value cause I haven't been following the prices lately, but last I knew(and that was a while ago, worth $500 without batting an eye) and if you do decide to sell, check Gunbrokers "completed sales" to get an idea what it is worth.

Thank you for checking back in on my question. Probably a '64 then because the selector on mine is on the hammer. I traded a buddy a rusted single snowmobile trailer for it back in the '70's. It came with a #24 Williams receiver sight on it which about doubles the sighting radius and sits low enough to still use the factory front sight. Thinking that a .22 WMR/3" 20 gauge wouldn't be enough for a coyote, I thought that I might like a 24V in a Hornet or .223/12 gauge until I lifted one at a gun show. Some heavier than the rimfire 24's. Slugs and the .22 WMR rounds hit within a couple inches of one another at 50 yards, so I like that 24H-DL for a possible do all rambling around rifle. I do wonder why Savage quit making them?

I find the 24V's to be liveable weight wise but they are all in 20 gauge, the 24F's in 12 gauge make the weight unbearable to me. I have one of the very few 24V's in 12 gauge, a transition gun the year before the 24F's came out, crossbolt safety, scroll work identical to the 24F on the receiver and hardwood furniture. It is unfired and will remain so as it is to damn heavy to carry around.

If ammunition ever becomes available again, you might want to give Federals 50 grain jacketed hollow points a try in that 22 Mag, it hits pretty hard and stabilizes fine in the 1 in 14 twist 22 Mag barrel on the Savage 24.
