Shagg, about your needed part

This might be an answer that is a little expensive...a couple of days ago I saw Model 74 for sale at auction on Gunbroker. Item #825508550 I believe. The auction ends tonight Aug 13, 2019. The thing...

The Model 89 was made for more than one year

I do not have my information at my fingertips but the 89, while not common, is listed in the Gun Digest for several years. It is in the 1986 Savage catalog. I am not sure it should be referred to as...

I am still here in the same place, Roadrat.

Good to hear from you. Are you still out north of me where you were years ago? I am now 76 and have decided to get rid of most of my guns. So, I have one listed for sale in the market place here. I...

I do not want to be a braggart but I know quite a bit

about the 99 M1 and the 989 M2. It is my belief that most likely the Marlin Co had a spare barrel from a 989 M2 and put it on a 99 M1, or someone did the change after factory sold the gun. The 99 M1...

Kudos to you, Roadrat

on such a great find. Something so nice just begs to be with you or me when we walk out the door.

Slumlord, I respect your expertise and opinion

on this series of firearms. So, I am going to "poke" you and ask you to answer my question....why not just buy a 72...is it not just a 71 without the commem fufu? That is what I think.

Good for you, Slumlord

I do not need the cash in my savings account so in no hurry really. But I have not been to the range in probably 3 years. I have about 18 rifles and selling one a month on RFC would obviously be a...

Isn't the 72 just as good a deal?

I think the 72 is the same as the 71 without the commemmorative fufu! Maybe I am wrong. Why not just buy a 72 and be done with it?

I am a Modern Favorite Collector

I have a modest collection of modern Favorites..the Model 71 commem, the 72, the 74, and three varieties of the .22LR 30 models...one walnut and octagon, one walnut and half-round, and one non-walnut...

Model 74 is a scarce, sleeper rifle

Most shooters are probably not aware of this. I could be wrong, but do not think so. I have a collection of the modern Stevens Favorite type rifles...the Stevens Model 71, 72, 74, and models 30G. I...

Vinco et al

I do not believe this rifle was necessarily refinished. The earlier 99M1 and 989 M2 models did have a dull oiled finish walnut that I find really attractive with very nice walnut wood. However, in my...

Slumlord et al

I am guessing the reason the 22 mag model was not made in take-down was due to the power of that little cartridge and, perhaps, the company did not want to go to the trouble and increase of...

Slumlord, et al....I may be wrong, but

I do not think the .22 Mag was made in a take-down. I am positive the .17 was made in a take-down, and of course, the 22LR. But, again, I do not believe the .22 Mag was made in take-down.

Another possibilty for aperture sights

is Skinner sights. Go to the web site for Skinner Sights and learn all about them. I do not shoot them much but own, I think, all models of the Favorite copies made by Savage...I have the Model 71,...

To the OP and all others

First, Congratulations on finding a $400 plus gun for less than $250. The .22 LR of the Model 30G Favorite is not really common in my opinion. When you get into the other two calibers and the...

This line of rifles...the Favorite 30G

is one of my great interests but I do not know. I have a collection of those rifles but but I do not have anything but the 22LRs. Perhaps you can look at the Numrich Parts site and look at their...

RJF in post above may I gently correct you

You say that the 99M1 was the only carbine with that sight. Well, actually the 99M1 has a box mag (clip) fed counterpart...the 989M2 that is identical except for the way it loads. It also uses the...

Don't forget Ebay

Ebay does not allow guns to be sold but does have lots of firearm parts. Start searching there also.

I am 74 and identify with the OP

I love Marlin semi-auto .22 rifles and my preferred are Model 795 type that have the "clip" or box mag if you will. So, I go to the range and take my 795 and a couple other Marlin clip .22s and I...

I prefer the box mags aka clip fed Marlins

over the tube fed. Thus I like the 989 M2 much more than the 99M1. Also, you might know that 989 M2 is quite a bit less common than the 99M1. They are great looking rifles and just great period. I...
