Anyone on here have any info or know where to find dates of manufacture etc on the Savage 99? My wife and I have just found in our possession her dad's favorite deer rifle, he passed away 2 yrs ago and the wife just got around to going through things with her brother. It is what I would guess to be a relatively low serial number in the 311,xxx's and in very good shape, has a Redfield peep and a flip up buckhorn sight. I would have to think this is a fairly valuable rifle, although it isn't going anywhere, just like to have an idea on it. It is in beautiful shape too, near mint I'd say.
