DescriptionManufactured from 1914 to 1921 in the 145500 to 237500 serial number range, these Model 1899 rifles were developed to introduce the Charles Newton designed .250-3000 Savage cartridge. Fitted with a 22" featherweight takedown barrel, unique checkered trigger, and uncheckered pistol grip perch belly stock. Pinned beaded blade front and Savage adjustable rear sights on barrel with the two line address/patent date marking ahead of rear sight and two line hi-pressure steel/model marking and "250-3000 SAVAGE" on the left barrel side. Cocking indicator, upper tang tapped for sight mounting and jeweled bolt. Fancy checkering on the Schnabel forearm with a smooth buttstock featuring a hard rubber grip cap and serrated steel buttplate stamped with the Savage Indian logo.

ConditionVery fine. The rifle retains 90% original blue finish thinning to a gray with the underside of the receiver having a smooth gray patina. The nicely figured wood is fine with some minor dings and scratches, with three partially filled pressure dents on the grip area (right side). There are some scattered minor nicks in the overall crisp forearm checkering.

SHIPPING CHARGES. All shipping charges must be paid by the successful bidder prior to delivery of the firearm.

Shipping charges will be based upon what it costs RIAC to ship the purchased lots to the purchaser. All items must have shipping insurance; this insurance is mandatory. RIAC will not charge any labor charges for shipping. RIAC is not liable for any acts of omissions in packaging or shipping.
