I have a Savage Arms Co. 22 S,L & LR pump action, clip fed (rifle) that is stamped on the barrel; Manufactured by Savage Arms Co.
Utica, N.Y., U.S.A. patented - Dec. 25, 1906 The barrel is octagonal and 23.75 inches long. The wooden pump is 5 inches long and the pump slide action is 2.5 inches long. There is a metal butt with Savage Arms, Trademark and an Indian chief with a headdress on.
There is also a 6 digit serial # on the metal piece where your fingers rest while firing. The metal piece blends smoothly into the dark walnut wooden stock coming from the trigger guard. The front of the trigger guard is squared off and the clip goes into the gun there. The clip opening is between 1 and 3/16 and 1 and 1/4 inches wide. There is no model # anywhere I can find, I'm hoping I've described the gun well enough for someone to recognize the model and maybe when it was manufactured!!!THANKS
Savage made 3 pump .22 clip fed rifles which are almost identical, models 1903, 1906 and 1909.
Clearly yours is not a 1903.
Most 1909's have a round barrel, making yours a 1906.
So far so good.
There have been no recent sales of 1906's on gunbroker.
Recent sales of 1903's on Gunbroker have ranged from $250 to $300. There is a 1909 listed at $375, but no one has bid on it, and there is a pair of 1903's currently listed at $350 and $450, but they have attracted zero bids.
So, if I had to guess a current auction value, I would guess that $250 - $300 range.
Note that you described the gun well, but did NOT describe its condition.
That being the case, I can't guess where it would fall in that range.
Thanks R Boatright!
I now have a consensus of opinion and have ordered 2 clips for it on the internet...hopefully the right ones!!! The gun looks to be in pretty good shape to me... but my knowledge is very limited. No cracks or major scratches anywhere and it's all there, the dark finish still looks good, and nothings loose.Thanks again!!!!
Where did you find the clips? I have the same gun and can not find the clips anywhere.
Have you looked on;
Thank you for the site information. I will check it out.
Your most welcomed....
what is the price for savage pat dec 25 1906 22s,l & 22lr octagon barrel pump action rifle clip.
hello, i just picked up a Savage Arms Co. 22 S,L & LR pump action today at a yard sale. It has some slight rust issues on the outside of the barrel, the stock /pump foreend are good but the gun is at best in "ok condition" I cant seem to find the year of the model i have. I believe its generally on the back left side of the barrel, just before the the reciever. Im cant find those markings. It has the octogonal barrel, if that helps.It has the Manufaturer and location( 22 S.L and L.R Savage Arms Company Utica, Ny) on the clip and on the top of the barrel. Below the trigger gaurd it has the numbers 2848. Do you have any helpful ideas, hints????????
Savage made at least four different models of pump .22's that had octagonal barrels.
You'ld need to post photos if there are no other marks.
recent on line auction sales have been from $190 to $250 with at least one gun priced at $350 attracting zero bids.
can you tell me if you found clips for this????? My Dad seems to lose these things and i would really like to get a couple.
Bobs gun parts has the clips for $35 so I have been told
Your rifle could very well be a Model 1903. The Model 1903 was made until approximately 1920. If it has a crescent butt plate on it I would say it is a Model 1903. The first Model 1903's did not have a patent date on the barrel, but as Savage started making changes to the design, they added patent dates to the barrel address. I have had several in the six digit serial number range with the metal crescent butt plate with the Savage Indian logo stamped into it. The dates of manufacture are hard to come by with the Savages. The Company changed hands numerous times and records were not kept in good order.
