This should be interesting!! Perfect timing it would seem.


For info on my Savage 99 no-drill custom scope mount send an email to: [email protected]
I also have good quality sights and parts for your 99 at a reasonable price.

There are a few I'd love to have, but expect they are out of my league. I hope some of you guys might get a chance at some of them. I think he'd like to sell it all as one lot, but I don't have the nards to ask for a price or make an offer.

I'd heard it was for sale. Saw a bunch at the NRA museum in Springfield at Bass Pro a couple years ago. Just.. wow...

That book is well worth buying a copy, but I expect you all already have one.

I wonder if the 1895 and the two 1899's that are on pages 4 to 7 will be auctioned off also.

Greg, thanks for posting about this! Yes, I'm currently looking to see if there's a buyer for the entire Bailey Brower Jr. collection (or a large portion of it), but I do know that we're unlikely to find the Right Guy for that. Assuming we don't find that person, I'll start piecing out the collection beginning in May. I plan to list the individual pieces on my http://GunHeritage.com website before offering them elsewhere. If you'd like to receive an email notifying you when new listings are posted, just email me at SupicaLLCoutlook.com and let me know you want on the email list. I won't flood your mailbox - one post a week at the most, I won't sell your email, and when you want off the list just let me know.

It is, of course a spectacular collection. I'm pretty sure it's the finest Savage pistol collection in the world with a stunning range of subtle variations, engraved pistols, rare US trials 45s, ultra-rare .25acp's, foreign military (Portuguese, French, Canadian), historically attributed pieces, factory prototypes. Many of the guns in the collection are used for illustrations in Bailey's definitive book Savage Pistols. There are also Savage long guns - 95s, 99s, and a wide selection of early .22s.

The collection isn't limited to Savages. Bailey has a really neat assortment of competing pocket pistols from the early 20th century and later, a Winchester prototype pistol, S&W autopistols, Whitneys, and unusual and oddball stuff (Martz .45 Lugers for example).

I'll be previewing a few select pieces at Wanenmacher's Tulsa Arms Show in April, so if you're there, stop by and say hi. I'll also have copies of Bailey's Savage Pistols book available.

PS - I'm new to this forum, so if I'm off base by posting about this here, please accept my apologies and either remove the post or let me know to remove it. If it's permitted, I'll start a thread of photos of interesting Savages from the collection here, not necessarily as an offer to sell, but just coz they're cool.

Thanks! - Jim

Welcome to the group Jim! I always enjoyed talking to Baily at the KC shows. I learned a lot from listening to Dave Koch and him talk about Savage pistols.

We'll all kick in and buy you a ticket, love to see you up here. I'll get things going, here's the first dollar I ever made. Said I'd never spend it, but, this is a worthy cause. Wish you could make the trip one day. If you make it to the East Coast, there are a lot of us pretty close together.


I'm not greedy, I just want one of each.

Jim just sent me a closeup of the engraving on 33.390 pictured on page 7 of Bailey's book. It doesn't look like Tue's work. The 1895 and the 1899 pictured on pages 4 and 5 have been sold. They will be pictured in my new book.

Ok so 33.390 is not Tue. ?? But I doubt it. Then who?
Maybe you could re-post those pics and we could decide for ourselves. ??

More/better pics would help, but, clearly does not appear to be Tue or a known pattern.
It's interesting. Likely after market engraving vs. factory. ??
Does the owner have a factory letter or any other info on the rifle?
