    My grandmother is looking to find out the value of her husband's 1948 Savage 99F in 300 Savage caliber. It is in amazing condition, perfect bluing and no pits or rust. I cannot send pics now but would like to know to tell her as she is considering selling it.

    Thanks guys and gals!

    Valuation is very dependent on condition.
    More research is needed to find out the serial number matching the year of mfg.

    After looking at the gun in person today I just found out the Serial number code has a letter and it's a 3F under the lever. So 1954 for the year. The rifle is a Model 99 E (Not an F) Any idea of a value/asking price?

    Sorry, I have no idea. Was just trying to help by searching the net. You might try gun auction sites like Guns for Sale, Gun Classifieds, Gun Auctions, Shop for Guns at GunsAmerica or Guns - Online Gun Auction - Guns for Sale at GunBroker.com.

    Condition is everything for this rifle. You are somewhere in the $500+/- area. Check the completed auctions on Gunbroker.
