Gentlemen , This is why I keep old books. According to my Gun Parts catalog, 19th edition,on page 482, They state Savage models 6A- 6AB- 6B , Stevens and Springfield models 87A- 87AB- 87B- 87AT- 76A parts are all interchangeable. Stevens Model 85E- 85KE parts are unique, to this model. ( If you look them up on line , they should have an on line schematic, to let you know what they have available in parts for your firearm.)

In my 1969 Gun Digest Book , on page 320, they list your gun at retail price of $49.50. Now for a quote out of the book-" Autoloading rifle, tubular magazine holds 22 shorts, or 15 long rifle. Tang safety, 20" round tapered barrel. Action handles shorts or long rifle cartridges.
Adapts for bolt action repeater or single shot use by pressing cross-bolt to the left. Grooved for tip-off mounts.Walnut finish with pistol grip stock, with corrugated white line spacer, buttplate. Overall 40" , 5 3\4 pounds, Caliber .22 Short Long & long rifle."

Now as to when they were manufactured, from 1938 to 1965. The early ones had a checkered walnut stock & the later ones, after 1945, had a plain stock. I am not showing any serial number breakdown, but I think you can get an idea from what you have.

I hope this info will help.......................Joe

I paid $310.00 at a farm auction 2 weeks ago. Missing one bolt for stock and barrel is pitted and lastly there is washer with a hammered over bolt holding it together. The octigon part of barrel is just the first 2 inches at the reciever. I am not looking to add to my collection. Good luck to you.

The gun was manufactured in the early 40s. The value of the gun is $150 in PERFECT condition. Generally these things are going for $60.00. For parts I would go to http://www.gunpartscorp.com...I just bought a new lifter spring for the same gun on there for $6. Doesn't sound bad...but hard to think that the spring is 1/10th the value of the gun.
