While at the FFL today doing a transfer, I happened to notice a Savage 1899 on the shelf. Most don’t even “see” these rifles since they aren’t black and tactical. But I have been eyeing the type for quite a while. Just waiting to see what comes down the road.
Here we have a Savage 1899. It is more commonly known as the Savage 99.
They come in a few different “crazy weird” calibers. This one happens to be in Savage 250-3000. Is a takedown. And even has a nice, original carrying case. Not bad for a rifle made in 1916.
For those in the know, yes this does have the magazine round count window and mechanism.
Am I interested? You bet! I will buy it? Not sure. I was there picking up something that already is crazy expensive. Besides, I need to do some research on 250-3000 and see if it’s obtainable and how it shoots in these relatively light rifle.
