Joe, get yourself a .32-40 single shot target rifle and all the gear to run it, and make much better use of that brass. Nothing like throwing a couple G's toward a gun just to make use of some orphan brass. (Of course the same amount can be expended for a nice .32-40 M1899.)

Joe

How many 220 cases are you talkin'? I could probably rehome those for you, thereby relieving you of the obligation to buy a new firearm.

One box, I’ll bring them to Noxen. You don't happen to have any 444 Marlin do you? Anyone else, I could use a few.

Chilling in Missoula,no books available to me.

Barrel length is 20". Crown is good.

Barrel address is:
Manufactured by the Savage Arms Company.Utica,N.Y.US.A
Patented February 7. 1893. July 25.1893. October 3.1899

Lower and to the right: SAVAGE HI-PRESSURE STEEL
(left arrow)MODEL 1899(right arrow} Further to the right before the receiver ring.: 30-30.

There is no A, B, .... F.


Serial # 97947


It has both scope mount d&T holes, and front sight (milled into the barrel), and a Savage rear sight without the elevator wedge, and tang sight mounting holes. The buttplate is steel with 36 horizontal groves and the "Savage quality" logo below that.

There is a chip out of the butt at the bottom of the buttplate, and two or three other cracks to be mended. What would the correct finish to be applied to this when its all done.

Is this likely to have been d&t'd later in life, or was it manufactured later than 1909 (by serial number search)?

unfortunately they weren't D&T'd back then except maybe for barrel mounted scopes.

I think your butt stock has been replaced, also. Have you checked the serial on the wood and the plate?

The number on the buttstock does not match the receiver, but DOES match the fore-end! #247489 (1920-1921).

The butt plate is a type 2 per D.P. Murray as is the barrel address marking.

It looks like a 1899 H, but of course with the wood not matching the receiver, who knows what was on it originally.

Its has definitely been re-blued, and no trace of case hardening on the lever.

Stock is straight, as is the lever.

I'm assuming the re-blueing was done at the same time as the scope mounting holes were d&t'd.
