View Full Version : Early Savage .22

July 17, 2017, 14:33
I picked up an old Savage .22 rifle from a friend and need some information.
The rifles barrel and receiver are one piece like my Model 23B but the stock is full length similar to a 1903 Springfield. There is no model number or serial number on the rifle. the only markings on the rifle are .22lr, manufactured by Savage and paten dates from 1905, 1915 and 1917. Also need to know were I can get a few magazines for it. I will post pictures as soon as I find a way other then photobucket. Any information will be helpful.

^Like he said^

Sounds like a "Savage Model 19 NRA Bolt Action Match Rifle"
Model 0f 1919
25" Barrel
5-shot magazine
Weight about 7 pounds
Adj. Rear peep sight, plade front sight. (SIC, I assume) should be Blade.
Full Military stock with Pistol Grip

Also made as Model 19 Bolt Action Target, Model 19L with Lyman sights. and 19M with heavy 28-inch heavy barrel with scope bases.

Mags may be a bit of a problem according to Ammoclip, depending on model and early/late versions.

Still trying to post pictures. My rear sight is a open style with the push under elevator. Kind of like the cheap sighs put on the new Marlin .22. Also in cocks on closing. This struck me as odd due to my Model 23B 25-20 cocks on opening.

Look anything like?

Cock on closing seems weird to me too, but the only 22 Military Match rifles I have experience with are the Mossberg and my old 1930's Winchester 52.

Have read that your Savage had sight options of your Leaf style to a Receiver target type and also a scope option without irons or, no sights at all.

That like mine except mine has the leaf sigh. Boy are magazines expensive.
