Default Savage Model 6C

I inherited this rifle from my grandfather's collection, my grandfather asked my dad to pick any gun from the many he owned right before he passed, my dad picked this .22 cause he could shot it lol. I grew up shooting this rifle, remember not even being able to hold it up and dad holding it up so I could pull the trigger great memory(as he has passed as well). My question is I've looked up this rifle and have learnt Savage made them for sears in the 50's but the Sears models didn't look as nice as mine, can't find any info on it, any help would be helpful

Well, I can tell you that it has a about $100 rear sight.

Sometimes called a "gill gun" for the slots right at the breech, or "Click Clack"- when you fire, bolt stays open until you release trigger. You could manipulate the bolt handle (push in, pull out) to switch from manual single to semi-auto

It does resemble gills to the left of the bolt, as for the sights its as was when my grandfather owned it. Its a great rifle, only problem I've had w it is firing 3 round burst and jamming on the spent casing(due inexperienced cleaning it) other wise it eats cheap bricks of ammo like a champ.

I have the model 6B and it shoots awesome. I got the gun in really beat up condition and disassembled it and replaced springs and a few screws that where rusted out. Oiled up and put back together I have gone through about 400 rounds and have had no problems with it at all and it can't believe how well it groups. If it is firing 3 round burst sounds like something could be worn out so it is not cycling properly.

I'm pretty sure it wasn't cycling right due to being dirty, while I had it apart the bolt and carrier are hard chrome(I guess?) It had a little discolor but running my nail across it there's no noticeable wear.

As a teen I would burn tru the cheap 550 blocks of ammo like it was going out of style, then it spent many yrs stored, after something like 9yrs of setting is when the problem started. I've since learnt how easy it is to field strip(turn of the cap), I'm hoping my next range trip will go well
