John, late back into this thread, but it seems to me that my 24 DL had that Williams peep on it when I got it from my buddy and I assume it was d&t at some point for the installation. The 24 is back home in the safe or I could look at that sight to see if there is a number on it, but I think that it was made specifically for the 24 because the bottom is recessed to mount low to the receiver.


My other auto is a .45

The bitterness of poor quality is remembered long after the sweetness of low price has faded from memory

Okay, thank you. Not sure if I want to drill and tap it but will check with a gunsmith and see what my options are. If i’m ever able to find a sight.

I thought about setting it up for a red dot scope but the stamp on the barrel stating not to use the shotgun barrel with a scope changed my mind. Anyway, I appreciate your input.

I just noticed (it hadn’t occurred to me to check before) that the front band on CCI MiniMag bullets is being partially engraved by the rifling upon chambering, as with a match chamber. Along with barrel rigidity, the type of chamber is likely to have played a significant role in this outcome:

i would try some .22 lr eley hollow points too. my 24 DL shoots the winchester 22 magnum very well. i have harvested a lot of game with it. turkey including a giant goulds; fox , javelina, and 50-60 coyotes. most of the coyotes were called in close and taken with the 20 gauge and number 3 buck. i just found some buckshot that is 3TTT, 26 pellets.

This Savage 24 was “like new” when I got it. Judging from all the beater 24s I’ve seen at gun shows, it seems that many a farm kid thought a 24 was also useful as shovel and pry bar, perhaps without ever realizing its true accuracy potential.

J23,
The condition of your 24 appears similar to mine, and could maybe produce similar 50 yard results. So, I’ve been eagerly waiting for you to post a target photo. How ‘bout it?
