Savage 24
Hi, I inherited a Savage mod. 24 in .22 magnum/ .410 magnum with mated barrels and selector switch on the side. Gun has less than 1,000 rounds though either barrel and has very light wear. I cant seem to find info on this exact type with the .22 mag. I know my dad bought it in 1963. How rare is it and what is it worth so I can insure it till my kids get it from me. Thanks

i'll have to post a picture of it after the 5th as gun is still in California and I wont be able to get out there till then. I checked the one web site that was sugested and it still said nothing about a .22 mag over the .410 for the side mounted selector switch. I'm just wondering if this was a short production run before going to the hammer selector.

They made many of the 22 mag/410's. Some have been converted to the hammer selector. I converted many of the model 24's as when hammer or selector had a problem the only option was to convert or make the parts yourself. It is easy to see if they were converted as they had a hole on the right side where the selector button was.

model 24
Ok I have the pics how do I post them on here? Could not find answer in faq's. Found out Dad bought it around 1960 from Sears in Lima Ohio. If I had the box it would look just like the day he bought it.
