Re: Savage Sporter 23B .25/20
I have been trying to find the worth of my Savage Sporty for a long time now and the post here have helped some what.
I found this riffle in a remote village in Alaska and it's been well used. The butt has a hand-made 1.5" wooden extension nailed into it so I'm sure that kills the value from what I read. I have no idea what "bluing" is so I can't tell you much about that but the riffling looks good. I'm not a gun person...
The clip says Savage Sporter 25-20 or 32-20 in great working condition.
To the right of the bolt action is the numbers 99717
On top of the barrel is written:
Savage Sporter manufactured by savage arms corp. UTICA, NY USA
Patented Nov. 28 1905 Sep.7 1915 Sep. 4 1917 Nov. 20 1917
These are all the writings I can find. I have taken it to 2 local gun shops and neither can find it in their books but it always gets lots of attention. And I'm getting the same answer to my question of "Whats it worth?"... "I'll give ya $50 buck for it."
Can you help me out at all? I can always send pictures if that helps.
Thanks in advance
Trey in Alaska
