Listed for sale in AK. Is it worth the asking price of $900?

At the risk of incurring some “Savage Hate” I don’t think so. That is getting real close to what the Savage/Tikka Turkey guns (albeit .222s) go for - and they are a much better gun. My Tikka shoots like a bolt action rifle. I realize the .222 isn’t as popular as a .223, but in the field, with these types of rifles (combination guns) you aren’t going to see a difference, other than .223 ammo is easier to find (in normal times!).

What's it worth to YOU is the question? If you need it or want it and that is the only one you can find it's a deal. The .223 is the driver on the price right now. I owned the exact combination a few years ago and couldn't sell it fast enough after using it for a season. trying to scope a combo gun with a hammer and the selector on the hammers is a disaster as you have to mount the scope so high to be able to operate the selector and hammer that target acquisition become problematic. A combo gun with two triggers and a safety works SO much better. If your going to use it without the scope it is workable but you still have to reach up and cock it and flip the selector over, interesting with heavy Alaska rated gloves heck even any glove makes it difficult.


After the first shot the rest are just noise.

Make mine a Minaska

I've owned a couple 24's in the V model and a bunch more in rimfires. I still have a D rimfire model. 223's are less common. Condition looks good. 223 ammo is easy to find compared to 222. The sling swivel is a plus. No idea on the scope value, but that might add some value, as well. Used prices are all over the place, but that price is somewhere in the current range. Like Erich says, if it was what I wanted and I had the money, I'd take it home. All my 24's shot real well if you let the barrel cool between shots. The V's tend to string up as the barrel warms, the rimfires, less so, in my experience.
Could be a nice hunting gun. Good luck,
Bfly

Putting a scope on my 24 DL .22 magnum pretty much made the scope useless for anything but a slug. A peep sight works way better. A .223/20 3" would be a really good varmint calling rifle, but the OP is posting from AK. and I'd think a .30-30/20 3" would be more useful up there. There is one of those in the Green Bay Cabela's Collector Room for sale.


My other auto is a .45

If isn't an R&D gun, no.

I'll sell you a 24V 222/20 in excellent conditon for $550 plus the actual shipping. Run a 223 finish reamer in the 222 barrel and you're good to go.

Thanks so much for all of the feedback. Unfortunately I'll have to pass on this at this time as Mother Nature and Murphy's law have conspired to drain my bank account of disposable income.

Seen a 22/410 at a gunshow Sunday for $700. It was in bad shape. Blueing was wore and stock was beat up pretty bad. This was in maryland. I am sure it was still their when they packed up for the day.

I have a minty 24V in 222/20 that I'd be happy to sell for $550 plus the actual shipping, but nobody seems to want it.

Much as I like the Savage 24's, none of them are worth $900 to me. I would guess, however, that one is pretty close to the current going price.

The 30-30/20ga is very popular here in Canada for deer hunters that may want to pop a grouse with the 20.

They used to be $300-400 not that long ago but see them for +/- $1K now.

i own a few o/u Savages the last one i purchased was a 222/20 ga. i rechambered if to a 223/556 reason ammo is easier to find any place the 222 Rem. is a great cartridge only for a target handloader shooter . in my family 223 was the best way for them to enjoy this unique O/U Savage in a 223-556 / 20 gauge.

I gave one to my boyhood friend just before he moved to Moose Pass AK many years ago. He took two moose with it. He shot a lot of ptarmigan with it when he went to work on the North Slope.

Yup. That’s my rule of thumb. In this case, the answer is no. I had one of the later ones in .30/30/12 with a plastic stock. Killed a deer with the rifle, missed an opportunity at a turkey because the scope combo was so ungainly and slow to use. Heavy bugger too. It did have the surprising quality of putting bullets from the rifle and slugs to the same POI at 50 yards. Like the other guy said, a peep sight would be more better, but I might’ve missed the deer using one, as the shot was “tricky”.
