Default Got My Model 19 Today, I got Very Lucky

My 19 came today and I was blown away.
The stock has a few scratches in it, we took the action out and it's the original oil finish, the grain is not filled in.

The metal is 98% blued with some nice patina on top of the barrel and a couple other places, the pictures don't show the beautiful patina on the bluing, it's mostly full bluing with about 30% with some patina, the magazine looks like it's hardly even been used.
It has a Wallensak 4 X scope on it, the glass in the scope and cross hair is perfect, Very good trigger, breaks very clean,Marked with several patent dates starting with 1905.

I have never seen a M19 in such wonderful condition, the bore is great, original bluing with just a few scratches in it.

$400. I scored big time on this one. The pictures taken by the dealer didn't really show how nice it is. Tell me what you think and any history I may not know. I know it has the thicker 28" target barrel.
The serial numbers below 25,000 are supposed to be the lower serial numbers, mine has a 4 didit number 54XX. It must have been from the first or second year of production.
It was made for a scope, not sights and with the 28" heavy barrel, I would think it was made as a target rifle.
I can't believe I made such a great find. It does not have the original magazine, I'll have to look for the correct one.

If anyone knows any history of these early models, I sure would love to hear about it.

I'm stll trying to get ahold of the historian for Savage. It has such a low serial number. I was told by one guy it was made in 1917. The NRA 19's started production in about 1933, so this is one of the first of the 19's made. We'll see.
