i passed over a lot of those older Savage 99's when they were reasonably priced used years ago. now people have a pretty good idea of their worth and price them accordingly.
as i have gotten older i now appreciate their simple elegance and solid performance. last one i looked at on consignment a couple of years ago, was an early factory take-down model, priced at $1300. even a few nice used ones i have run across are in the $500-700 range depending on condition.
