The Savage Model 1907 pistol was manufactured from 1910-1917, with this being a very unique example. This specific pistol is a factory cutaway, and is pictured on p. 150 of "Savage Pistols" by Bailey Brower Jr. It is unclear exactly what this gun was used for by the factory, as the trigger and trigger guard are both absent, allowing a view of the bottom of the barrel through the frame. Included with the pistol is a letter, signed by Brower, stating that the pistol was purchased from a well-known New York gun dealer, who had access to the Savage Research & Development storeroom, and purchased this gun, along with many others, directly from Savage. It is marked with the standard two-line address, patent date, and caliber marking on top of the barrel extension, and the desirable, unique serial number "p3" is on the front edge of the frame. It is fitted with the standard blade and notch sights and checkered metal grips with Savage logos. Provenance: The Bailey Brower, Jr. Collection, author of “Savage Pistols”
Excellent as in factory cutaway configuration, retains 98% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish with a few scattered light handling marks. The grips are very fine showing some light wear to the finish and crisp checkering. The trigger and trigger guard are absent to allow viewing of the barrel assembly from the bottom.
