Re: Savage model .22-4.10
Jackman, I have owned a Savage .410/.22, model 24B, for the last 46 years.
It is the best handling gun I own, and I am serious about that. It just feels - RIGHT when I swing it up.
This is my gun of choice when things go bump in the night, so I keep both barrels loaded all the time. One day, my wifes cousin came out to show me how to shoot trap. He had just bought a new clay thrower, and set it up to throw out over an open field, and we took turns busting clays, him with a 12 gauge and me with my Savage. He kept expressing surprise that I was busting every bird with a .410.
After we had been doing this a while, when it was my turn I swung up and shot - and just heard a little "pop" instead of a "Bang". The clay burst apart in the air, and checking I found that the selector button had accidentally been bumped to the UP position during handling, and I had busted that bird with a .22 LR round.
He did not say a word; he just loaded up his thrower, birds, gun, and drove away.
Alpo is sure right; this is a near perfect field gun when you aren't sure what you may have the opportunity to bag. There is a WIDE range of ammo for both barrels, which makes this gun extremely versatile.
If it is in decent shape, BUY it! You won't be disappointed!
