Re: Info on a Savage 1899
[QUOTE=bsteelma;696524] Also, here is a picture of some data on the lower reciever tang; "Pat Oct 7th 79" and the serial number. QUOTE]
That is the Winchester patent date and serial number. Flayderman's guide states that those before approx. serial 84700 were made before Dec 31, 1898, so yours is legally an antique.
