Description:

Manufactured in 1915 with the standard two-line address, patent date, and caliber marking on the top of the barrel extension and the Savage trademark on the left of the frame. This is one of only approximately 1,150 purchased by the Portuguese government. It is fitted with blade and notch sights, a lanyard loop on the butt, and a pair of Portuguese crest, checkered, hard rubber grips. The included factory letter lists shipment on 16 December 1915 to l'Administration de'l'Arsenal de l'Armes. Provenance: The Bailey Brower, Jr. Collection, author of “Savage Pistols”

Rating Definition:

Exceptionally fine, retains 85% plus of the bright original high polish blue finish and 80% of the vibrant case colors on the trigger with the balance having thinned to mostly a smooth grey patina and a few scattered patches of light pitting. The grips are very fine with a series of hairline cracks in the left panel and otherwise some scattered light handling marks and crisp checkering. Mechanically excellent.
