Need help IDing Savage 99
Hello to all
I purchased this Savage 99 two weeks ago. I am now trying to get a complete model identification, the store tag identified it as a 99C. But, I can not find “C” stamped on the gun. This is what I do know:
SAVETY LEVER/TRIGGER LOCK
DATE OF MAN. 1917
BARREL ROUND, NO SIGHTS
Stamped on the Lever boss is “D” in a circle.
The photos 99C show a removable box magazine, round barrel with sight and a tang safety.
My questions are:
Did Savage ever chamber the 99 for 22-250? If yes what years and model?
Did any models produced in 1917 have a Monte Carlo stock?
