Savage 1922



Log in to see fewer ads
One of favorites. Serial number 2853 refinished.
Bought this about 1 1/2 years ago at a gun show. Glad I did, because 2 other people came back looking for it. Redone by the seller. He does great work. Hard to believe a gun 99 years old could be so smooth and balanced. These machinists were so highly skilled. People still marvel at their work, even a hundred years later. I am a big fan of the early Savage/Stevens 22 magazine fed rifles. Just had to show this one.
They are beautiful guns!

Paul, thank you for sharing your beautiful rifle. Looking at yours and my ??? Model, I now think it is a Model 22. My serial is 5978. I had not known to look for the serial number on the back of the receiver.

You are right about the balance and fit of these rifles. They are way better than any of the competition back in their day.

Ken

You are welcome and Thanks! If anyone can figure your rifle out, its Sav22. Him and Sav99age seam to be the most knowledgeable. I will be posting my 19NRA and 1933 soon too! They are not refinished, but pretty nice shape. I still need the original 19, 23a and 1933. I am new to posting on here. Have read a lot of post though. How did you know I posted my 1922. Were you notified or just looking?
Thanks!
Paul

Great minds I guess. I'm currently working on a set of Savage 1922's as a wedding gift. Have all of the metal down to the white and ready for rebluing. Stocks are done, only thing left is mounting the Weaver J 4 s. Plan on using the existing holes on top of the barrel. Any suggestions on mounting hardware would be appreciated. Both of these rifles started out as basket cases, took a he better part of a year to find all the missing parts and knock the rust off. The bride and groom should be happy, just hope they don't trade them in set of 10/22s, kids today.
Chris.

Couldn't agree more, Paul. Love the old Savage rifles. Slim and elegant.

CDS, do you have 3/4" rings for the 22 'tip off' size mount? Decent Mossberg rings for their M4 scopes would match up for looks. To avoid d/t'ing you could mill a pair of proper sized blocks to mount on top with the existing hole(s) in back and a dovetailed block to fit the rear sight cut. If the scope wont reach to tne sight cut you could get creative with a long one piece nicely thinned/profiled between the actual integral 'blocks'.

The existing holes on your 22 are 10x40 tpi, finding screws to fit them is nearly impossible.

Isnt only one back screw that size?
Fwiw, I sent for a die a couple years ago that Ive yet to use thinking I could use a #10 screw with a shank to thread for such. Figured Id do a trial run on a brass screw first but havent been able to find my 'roundtoit'...... I might could give it a go if you get to needing one to make this project happen.

The original screws are #10-36 for the large and #5-48 for the smaller. The #10-36 is the same size as used for the front tang sight hole on many Winchesters. I bought dies for both and use old long wood screw and thread the shafts & then cut to size. When threading grind the wood threads down a little so they go through the die easily and grip the screw by the threaded end in a vise or drill chuck when threading to avoid damaging the head.

When looking at the photos posted by the OP I find something quite interesting. A problem with many rifles today that use scopes is bolt eye bell interference when cycling. Simply put the bolt lift is too high. Yet this early production rifle made when scopes were rare has a very low bolt lift. Did the manufacturers forget something along the way?

Thanks for the feedback! Just sent away for a set of taps and dies for the 10-36 and 5-48. The custom blocks for the J4s is a great idea. Thank you all.
