Now that's what a hunter looked like when I was coming up in the 60's and 70's! I still have my buffalo plaid Woolrich Pennsylvania Tuxedo and hat. Somehow it shrunk or I'd still be hunting in it.

My first post here. Takedown 99, .250-3000, took my first buck with it almost 60 years ago.

Just bought my first Model 99 .250-3000. It was made in 1949 (per David Royal's excellent book) or 1950 according to the online serial number lookup. The serial number is 529636. The lever boss code is 23 with what was likely an A, it's just too faint to tell.

I'm hoping someone can help me identify the letter designation for this gun.

Greg, that's a darned pretty gun.. it almost surely started out life as a 99EG, but the stock got a heck of an aftermarket upgrade somewhere along the line.

If the front of the receiver has SAVAGE MODEL 99 stamped to the side so that you can see it beside the scope bases, it started life as a model 99R. The 99R's were drilled for scope bases at that time, the 99EG's weren't (well... 99.9% of them weren't, we see an occasional early oddball EG that is drilled, but very uncommon).

Welcome to the campfire!

Thank you! I was afraid someone was going to tell me that the wood was not original.

I shot this buck November 13, 2018 on my place in Milam County in central Texas with my 1966 Savage 99E in .308. He was big old boy with a non-typical rack counting 16 or 17 points.

Now he hangs out in our kitchen:

Downside is that it's not original. Upside is that it's 10x as pretty as original wood would be. If it was a rare model and cartridge, I'd be bummed that a real collectible had been altered and the value might have dropped.. but 99EG's and 99R's are very common and I personally don't think that stock hurts the value at all, probably the reverse.

Texgunner, heck of a cool rack on that guy!

Thank you very much! It looks like a great year for bucks out there this season, maybe he'll get a companion on that wall. wink
