I've had a couple of the 24's. I found them rather worthless. While functional they try to do two jobs and do neither very well. This type of thing has always been popular in Europe but not here in the USA. But if you like 'em, great.

Can't argue with that except to say that if you're gonna have one gun a multi-functional type like the 24 or 42 in the right configuration could be ideal. I really am thinking "one gun" only though myself.

You can't beat a Springfield M6 Scout.

I dunno -- I kinda like the Savage idea as a more regularly useable gun. The one you'd hang over the mantle. Keep in the truck. Hide at the Summer cottage. I'd even buy one myself in the right chamberings and configuration.

The M-6? Never quite got there. Looked, even sorta admired 'em, but could never pull the trigger (or squeeze it in the M-6's case I guess). I just couldn't justify one. Go figure: I have a few different types of what I'd call "survival" guns including a Savage 24 though, LOL, and it sorta is pretty bad for any individual kind of gun in some respects as a previous poster said.

But they are useful for many applications so we balance the issues out and ya gotta laugh at 'em and love 'em.

An lgs has a 24 in 22mag/20 gauge. He wants $430 for it. I am wondering what could be done with the sights. Thinking ghost ring and fiber optic front. The new ones are made cheap but the 22lr/410 would make a good squirrel gun. I would want an older one just like I am looking for an older Marlin 1894C.

That's pricey, but it's a seller's market for that kind of gun these days. I remember them going for a song and a dance at every gun shop in the country and they collected dust at that. That's a pretty perfect combination though IMO.

$430. See what Savage is missing out on!?

i hate say it, but the M42 looks like crap compared to the M24 Savage. at least the 24 had wood furniture.

Even with a synthetic stocks the 24 is a better looking gun.

Utility player. It's already a takedown gun, but put a collapsible stock (not wood but more like Mossberg's lever action) on a stainless steel 42 with 18" barrels, .22 Mag over light Improved Cylinder 20 or even .223 over 12 ga., and I'd be so there!
