Feel free to contribute if you have any barrels sitting around and a scale.

22" 1920 t/d 1899A SR barrel - 44.6 oz. SN 228,xxx - 303 Sav.
24" Westfield t/d barrel - 41 oz. 250-3000. (I believe same profile as the 1950's EG/R)


I'll add more to it as I get time to go through the safes. And I just had my cased sets out and didn't weigh them... Darn, have to drag them out again. grin

Provide length and cartridge, and wherever you can a serial number range and model - or at least barrel profile. Thx.

I still have the original 300 Savage barrel off my 1952 EG. I'll weigh it this evening if nobody else does one for that model/vintage by then.

What about sights? On or off? We have to be precise here smile


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.

Probably should note if the sights are off, I'd presume they are on otherwise.

As much as you ship stuff, it would probably pay for itself if you start paying for package postage through something like pirateship.com. I'm cutting $2+ off of each book I mail.

FB2's photo shows a good reason to collect all the details possible to have a good out come. Barrel address, barrel configuration, length, cut or original, which sights, other parts attached or missing and caliber.

Hmm.. maybe somebody we know can go through and weigh the common combinations of sights found on 1899's and 99's? grin

Most barrels I would expect to belong to a rifle, and I'd rather have a serial number than a barrel address. But in the case of loose barrels like FB's, barrel address is probably the best we can do.

What is the point of this fixation with "barrel weight"?

Can only weigh take down barrels. Not solid frames.
Rear sights may vary/weight. Front sight too to a lesser degree.

Even if all of the specs listed above are addressed,... so what?

I'm all for data, analysis, potential value, etc., but not seeing it here. confused

Part is just curiosity, it's something we've never looked at before. It might also help pinpoint changes to barrel profiles that we've never noticed before. We've done threads measuring the muzzle diameter of barrels.. why not the weights?

I'm never shipping another rifle just to let the postal thieves break it in half. I'll die with what's left.

Or so I keep telling myself.

Might as well start weighing stocks also. Walnut or gumwood (fruitwood) or maple? Wood varies a lot within species in density/mass which has a distinct bearing on the overall weight of a rifle too. Be sure to specify whether it has a varnish or oil finish. grin
