A similar call to Lyman, got me 'a less than helpful response'. Along the lines of, 'we don't make those, we don't have the info on those and we don't really care'.


i have a front sight with 1 screw hole and groves for a hood , has a sight in place,
i may also have a front with the 2 screw holes.

Will be looking for a 'correct' savage butt pad for this rifle. Can anyone share a pic of a 99CD butt pad taken from the end, showing the markings? I was going to say 'from the rear' but knowing this group of 'gentlemen' it might have gotten some 'odd' answers. wink

Norm, thanks for the offer. I found a set of 3 Williams streamlined front sights on ebay and their allegedly on the way.

Thanks.

I was able to visually verify a rear dovetail from pics on several CDs up to SN D103xxx (1979). I don't have pics on higher SNs that I can verify whether a dovetail is, or is not, present.

When it rains it pours. This time nicely!

I now have 3 Williams streamlined ramps that came as a single purchase for a reasonable price! In the original boxes, with the original instructions 2 with the screws, and marked with original prices ($4.00 $5.00 & $5.50). I'll get one fitted and the others will be available later.

A Williams receiver sight is on its way (at a reasonable price - not the $250 I was seeing else where).

Now for the front sight hood and front post. Recommendations on the height of the post please.

Oh yes, a Savage 1895 night be coming my way. It was in a estate dispute and an angry person literally bent the barrel in a "U" shape a few years back. It was chambered in 303 Savage. What other calibers were the 1895 chambered in?

Thanks all.

The Savage factory sight seen on most .250s is the #31 at .410" overall height.

Lots of variation over the post mill models though.

The 1895s were all .303 except for maybe 1 .30-30 the factory did.

It's mountain man rendezvous in Pinedale. Kept me busy until this afternoon. I found time to measure the front sight on the R&D CD. the top of the base is .321 and the height of the sight is .451
Took a pic of the posterior of the buttplate. It's different than the one pictured two days ago.

Some of you may have heard of Wyoming's soon to be former U.S. Representative Liz Cheney. Harriet Hageman is a good conservative pro-gun lady who is running against Liz baby.
I put some Hageman signs on the'29 convertible and drove it in the rendezvous parade yesterday. That's Brutus Haight in the rumble seat. He was passing out candy to the people lining the parade route This isn't political just an explanation for being a little slow getting the height of the sight base.
The 29 ready for the parade to begin.

Mike, I don't see a number on the sight or the base.
Thanks for the compliment Danmesia. It's a 30/30 car. It looks good going by 30 feet away and doing 30 MPH. It was restored over 50 years ago. The body work from that time is a little lumpy and it has picked up a lot of scratches over the years. It's a Vermont car and even though they didn't drive it in the Winter and kept it in the barn there is some rustout at the bottom of the rumble seat lid. I replaced the leaky radiator, replaced the non operable speedometer, replaced the generator with a 6 volt positive ground alternator and added turn signals and out side mirrors for safety. It's fun to drive although some jerks take exception to me driving 55 in a 70 zone.
I posted some pics here when I got it in December.

Yes that's a good looking car!

Whew. Searching for 99s in .38-55 or .375 Win, They're out there but pricey. Ran across one in 25-35 but at $1400 I wasn't that interested.

Anyway, about the 1895 with the U-turn barrel. Does anyone know the type of threading this one might have had? My older 1914 1899 TD had 'V' shaped threads instead of the typical 'square' type threads.

Also on the 1895 is anyone away of the pressure level (strength) of the action?

Thanks

Still working the photo issues, but i did get a good look at the lower tang. It is marked 'A X 6 * (as in star)', and that butt pad is looking uglier than ever.

Soooo its back to finding a peep sight. The williams I purchased (marked for a savage 99), holes do not line up with the factory drilled rear sight base holes. They're .540 center to center. The Wiliams peer sight holes are 1.100 center to center.

Or am I doing something wrong?

Perhaps an adjustable peep that will mount on the rear sight base?

Opinions or suggestions are appreciated.

The Williams peep sight you purchased is for earlier Model 99s that were D&T on the tang. In the early days only tang sights were available. In the 1930s sight manufacturers developed receiver sights that use the tang holes for mounting. Various sight manufacturers made receiver sights for the tang safety Model 99s that mount in the rear scope holes. That's what you need for your rifle.

Apparently I'm looking for a FP-99S. What other makers/models are there available. I'm looking for lyman, redfield, etc ... On the plus side, if I find a decent 1899/99 in need of a loving home without a tang safety, I have the receiver sight for it.

Edited: Lyman 57 SB. Will be at the Missoula gunshow this weekend. Wish me luck.

It begins... I have quite a few 99s/1899s I bought as homes for different tang sights I ended up with.

I bought a box of 250 primed brass a few years ago. I slid the box open and they were all in there with primers. Got home and looked again, they were all 220 Swift. Now I need a rifle in 220. Got 3 boxes of 32-40 at a yard sale for $5, now I need an 1899 for them. 219 Zipper and 44WCF also. But, I don't want another Winchester, I can only fit in one rabbit hole at a time.


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