Savage 99 Series A

Postby HarryAlonzo » 25 Jun 2020 11

Things have been pretty quiet, so I’m posting photos of my latest lever project. It’s an early production (1961) of the modern design 99 with the tang safety. The project started with an almost free 243 barrel. Took about a year to find a basket case with no barrel. Local gunsmith mounted & headspaced the barrel, then found another smith to do the bluing. I took it all down to white metal, but I left the pitting as character. The stock is awaiting the last coats of BLO to cure.

Thanks! My other 99 is an older EG in 300 Savage. There’s a lot to like about that cartridge.

We have a 99 made in 51 in the 300. It is a pleasure to carry it about through the woods and river bottoms.
Way down south in Arequipa, Peru till June 2020.
