Let me first start with the fact that I love the classic firearms.
I have just picked up a Savage Model 99 (Or 1899, can't tell) Take down version in .300 Savage. I ran the serial number 300025 through savage99.com and it shows a 1927 manufacture date. Seller thought it was made in the 1960's. I am not certain either way. Bore looks great but the action sticks a bit when returning to battery at the very end of cycle. Needs some blueing as well.
I will be taking it to a gunsmith for some work but I wanted to have an idea of value before I go dumping a ton of money into the rifle. Any ideas?
