If it had a bright sharp bore, then one could be justified in restoring it for a shooter with new wood and a rust blue, if one didn't have to spend much more than the current bid to get it. But when the seller admits to the bore being 'dark', well...

I think my 1 year old grand niece could do a better job of checkering with her spork.

I think every collection of fine Savages should include at least one of this ilk, just keep things in perspective. smile

I had an idea some years back that maybe it would be just as entertaining--and certainly a hell of a lot cheaper--to assemble a collection of the worst Bubba guns that one could find. Instead of trying to find a pristine K or an in the box T, you could search out the 99 with the most extra holes, the worst amateur stock carving, the cheesiest Clorox-bottle inlays.

On a related note, the guys in my deer camp have a rotating White Elephant gun that we swap off every year or so. It's an old pump action Mossberg with a plastic pump slide (predates the Model 500 by 20 years or more). The miserable thing sat in the hold of a fishing boat for a decade before we got it, and since then, we've "improved" it with each passing year (pocket knife carvings of a deer on the stock, a couple of compasses, a Buffalo nickle crudely inletted in the cheeckpiece, Dremmel tool engraving of a few choice slogans on the receiver). We've given it to each other for high-school and college graduations, weddings, Christmas, birthdays, etc. It's gotten so that nobody in the group wants to receive a gun-shaped box as a gift, for fear that it'll contain "Old Mossy." Maybe that's what ought to be done with this 99; maybe it should become the traveling door prize for Savage Fest.

That's Perfect! NOW the bidding war begins! I've already signed up for a new GB account using an untraceable handle, so I can bid shamelessly and send it to the next host.

The early slim for end checkered is nice, But any nice factory 99 is becoming hard to find. Including the mater stake.
