I hadn't posted here in a while, but when I found this Savage Mod 1907 gem, I remembered how much EddieCoyle liked them.

This is a first year manufacture, 1908, and with a three digit serial 902. It has all of the first production features, before the many modifications of later variants. The two coolest early features are Steel Grip Panels and the Dished Safety Lever.

But the best aspect is the condition, at about 98%. Hope you enjoy. Thanks for looking!

That seems to be a very complex firing system?
In order to circumvent John Browning's patent of a breech bolt contained within the slide, Savage needed a design with a removable breech bolt. But at least they made it simple to service. Field strip can be done in under 10 seconds.

That's my site. I did it a long time ago as sort of a project to learn HTML and Photoshop.

10 years ago I found one way in the back of a closet top shelf in a house we were renting. I fell in love with the style and workmanship. Beautiful gun, beautifully made!

I called the owner who apologized. He hadn't thought about that gun in many years and wasn't shooting anymore, so he said "If you want it, it's yours, otherwise I'll swing by and get it." Ten years later I'm still trying to figure out what was going through my head when I said "No thanks."[crying]

You've had that website up for 14 years, I'm sure it has generated much interest in the Savage.

For you to say that is the nicest you've seen, that means a lot. Thanks, Eddie

A scaled up version in 45acp was made to compete against the 1911 for the trials. 288 were made in 45acp......and returned to Savage after the contract wen to colt and the 1911.......the 288 were all re furbed ans sold to the civilian market. Would love to find one of those!

There's been one for sale on GunBroker for quite some time. A bargain at $14K.

If I ever hit the lottery...

An old thread, but I thought I'd add this:

I have one (.32). It does point well. Which is handy since the sights are almost useless.

My Remington 51, from about the same era, is the same. Low-profile sights were the norm then; I don't know why. But it made designers pay close attention to ergonomics. Without exception, all the Webleys and Savages and Rems of that era point very naturally.
