just in the last couple of years i have come to appreciate the model 99 Savages. many years ago i would see them at gun shows or gun stores but kind of would pass over them for more modern rifles. back then they were priced pretty decently, but just didn't capture my attention like the newer firearms did. what a disservice i was doing to myself for thinking like this.

well just a little over a year ago when i was at my LGS picking up an order, i was browsing the used gun rack, and lo and behold, an older model 99 sitting there, chambered in 250-3000 Savage, and a take-down model as well. had that old, used but not abused patina to it, that old rifles get from being used byt very much taken care of look like. it captured my eye and attention and was simply a beautiful looking rifle, that i would have been proud to own and shoot. but with a consignment price of $1300, it was not to be.

but one of these days, i hope to own a model 99 Savage, maybe even more than one. they are a beautiful rifle, they are well designed and very well made and they were made in many different varieties over it's long length of manufacter.

Being a vintage old left hander...I bought a 99 in .308 back in the early 60's. I have never been disappointed in this rifle. Great shooter. Enjoy it!

About 30 years ago at the Ohio Gun Collectors Show I ran across a Model 99 303 Take Down that was in mint condition that was made in 1937. Even had a heavy cloth/leather case to hold all the parts when broken down. Afterward I was able to find 5 boxes of new production Winchester 303 Savage ammo. I haven't shot it much. It's very accurate but just to pretty to shoot so I just fondle it now.

2 weeks ago I shot my first black bear with my Grandfather's 300 Sav. It's a model 99F. Made I think in 50-60 era.

There is a web page that dates the 99 Savages. Just Google the address.

How much would a used, but not abused, Savage 99 in a common caliber cost?
