Great advice from Pump .22s. I can only add that your estimate of about $200-250 would be close, based on the condition and assuming that it is in functional shape. If the bore is in poor condition,...

The Savage Model 22 was introduced in (surprise) 1922 and only lasted about a year and a half, when it was superseded by the very similar Model 23A. You are correct in stating that yours is indeed a...

You can just glue your rail on with Loctite Black Max, JB Weld, or Shoe Goo. These all hold really well, and if you decide to remove it later, all you need is a heat gun.

I'm pretty sure they are not. If you go to the Numrich (Gun Parts Corp.) website you can look at the profiles and see they are not the same. Also, the 72 has the split style v. the 72A's solid...

Welcome to the forum, DocP!
I'm certainly no expert on the Model 41, but I think you are right about the barrel on this one. It does appear to be a cut-down 7 1/2 inch barrel that was cut to 5.5...

Getting back on track here: With the mount you have, your only viable option for a decent scope (actually a very good one) would be a Weaver J2.5. It's nowhere nearly as bright as a modern Leupold,...

It's hard to tell from the one picture, but from what I can tell it appears to be a very nice one, with extra nice walnut. I'd say Jerryray is close on value at about $650-750, assuming everything...

You might try spraying it good with brake parts cleaner or gunscrubber and let it go at that. Just be sure to remove the stock first, as that stuff won't do the wood any good.

LZZ= Feb 1953. The only problem with such an early one is that it is not grooved for a scope. However you can attach a base or bases for a scope using JB Weld, Loctite Black Max or even Shoe Goo. ...

The basic design goes back to the John Browning-designed M1900, which morphed into the M1902, M1904, through the M58,59,60, and on up to the M67. See if this schematic of the M1900 helps you any: ...

According to an old Savage catalog (c. 1933) the M23A had a "rubbed varnish" finish. The later M23AA had an oil finish.

I'm by no means sure, but it sounds like the OP has one of the 3/4 inch side of barrel mounts. If that's the case, his options are very limited, as stated above. The old B4 and C4 Weavers left a...

That's not bad, but I think I would offer $250 and ask for return privileges in case there are any hidden issues. Make sure to take a good look at the bore first.

I think it's what they call economies of scale. The demand for shorts is nothing like it used to be, so the factories don't produce nearly as many of them. I would guess that 50-60 or more years...

If the bluing is that bad, I would pass or offer maybe $200-250. It's very unusual to have such poor bluing and very good wood together. That's a head scratcher.
