Help identify old Savage 22LR please



Log in to see fewer ads
When my dad passed he had a lot of old 22s. Some I passed out to grandkids per his wishes and the rest are stored in my house.

He had an old savage that he said was a military trainer, and I believe him by the way it looks. I don't think he ever shot it because he was busy fixing up old Mossbergs (one of many hobbies). It doesn't have a model number on it and I decided to keep this one because it is very cool. It was FILTHY! So I took the action out of the stock to scrape the crud out. I need help identifying it be it doesn't seem to want to go back together like it came apart. The magazine keeps getting stuck about half way in.

The only markings are "22-Long Rifle" directly above the ejection port. Farther down the barrel, before the first barrel band, it reads "Manufactured by Savage Arms Corp, Utica. N.Y. U.S.A. Pattented Nov. 28.1905. SEP. 7. 1915. Sep. 4. 1917. Nov. 20. 1917"

Any help would be greatly appreciated

Possibly a Savage 1919 Rock751? As Carbineone states a picture or two would be very helpful.

The patents and the mention of it looking like a military trainer make it a 1919NRA. There is no documentation any were ever used as military trainers, if used by the US military they would have had military stamping added and none have ever been found with any that I know of. These were introduced after WWI and may have been patterned after military rifles to appeal to veterans who had used similar looking rifles.

The Mdl 1919 went thru several iterations, changes in the firing pin (1st ones were dbl f.p.), rear peep sight and magazines. If this is the rifle you may not have the correct magazine for the model you have!
Look online for info on the Mdl 1919 and the variations to close in on what you have, that will take you a quantum leap forward for inquires here.
