Super nice, I'd just love to have a nice Savage 99 in my safe to have either a 250-3000 or a Savage .300.
Pretty guns. up

What’s the chances of finding the Maxim silencer for it...or having a “ look-a-like” made for it?

I would think that someone could make a fully functional replica....

Those are such neat rifles....

Very nice finds. Great rifles.


To be sure of hitting the target, shoot first and call whatever you hit the target.

I am the proud of a 300 Savage, 250-3000 Savage, and a 22 High Power that has a very bad barrel. Have been looking for a barrel for the HP but no luck so far. Was on a deer lease where 3 of the men used 300 Savage rifles and my Dad used a 1903 Springfield that had been sportirized in Germany. The Savages all had 21/2 power Weaver scopes on them. My Dad’s 1903 had a Redfield 4 power scope on it.

I, too love the old Model 99's. Possibly the smoothest handling of all the old lever guns.
Adios,
