    Hello,
    I just purchased a hard to find Savage model 1914 .380 pistol (.32 are more common). I heard that ammo for this gun is rare. Does anybody know if standard .380 acp ammo will (safely fire) work in this gun? The seller didn't know but I bought it cheap more for collecting than firing. Appreciate any info on this fine Savage 380.

    I've shot many of the Savages in .32 and .380. Yes regular .380 will be just fine. The Savage is a very fine pistol and everyone that I shot worked perfect. Sights are not to todays standard but the sleek design makes them nice to carry. You are right the 380's are hard to come by.

    Here in PA ammo is not a problem and most mail order sites have it. At one time it was scarce.

    Didn't want to start a new tread on this one.
    I found the same pistol in .32 cal. Is two hundred a decent deal. I'd rate it's condition 7 on a scale up to 10. It's a private sale so no trans or tax.

    I know of a model 1915. Grip safety, hammerless? $200 would be a very good price, depending on condition.

    WE NEED PITCHERS!!!!

    This is the only pic I have.
    I can't tell if it's a 1915 or 1917. I know the 17 doesn't have the grip safety. But it does have an exposed hammer.
    I can pick it up for a couple hundred bucks but I'll have to drive six hours. So I kind of looking at it as a three hundred dollar pistol. Plus I've drove six hours to see guns before that couldn't pass as a parts gun.
