Savage 24c

I just got an old beatup 20 gauge with 22rf ontop that holds extra ammo in the buttstock and shot it today.

It might have some old rust spots on it but the wood looks brand new and the bores are new looking.

With 22 shorts it shot good enough offhand to hit a rabbit in the head and the cylinder bore for the 20 gauge makes it good for small game in the brush or close in upland game. I cann't wait to get out and hunt with this little gem!!!

BTW this is one of the originals and it has the straight stock and weighs 5.75 pounds. Points nice and is just like the one my dad had back in the 70s when I was a kid. infact it is the first real gun I ever pulled the trigger on.......

No way of posting pics, but I have one purchased in the very early
60s. It is in .22/.410, and I picked up an extra barrel in 38 Spec/357.
The extra barrel's chamber is not real great, and I planned to clean
it up with a rechamber to a necked down 45 or 44 mag case. It shoots
kind of high, so a build up of the front sight will also need to be done.
The older ones have the barrels (22/410) welded together with no gap
between the barrels. Barrel selector is on the receiver, that is color
case hardened. Mine a pistol grip walnut stock. It still remains pristine

My 24C has a bent .22 barrel that actually worked to my advantage. I put a Lyman folding leaf in the dovetail and zeroed for 20 ga slugs. Then an aperature rear on the receiver for the .22. When I want to shot slugs I bump the Williams rear up (thumbscrew) and use the fold up leaf! Shoots slugs like a champ!

Wow, I guess I never have seen one with a bent barrel. Mine is one of the
older ones with no space between the two barrels and a solid spacer between
the two. You would have to bend both barrels , a task I am not sure can
be done with out a separation. Could you mean perhaps the two barrels
may not be regulated to the same point of aim? Once I had a clamp on
mount with a inexpensive Weaver B-4 on the top .22 barrel and found the
.22 very accurate, but slightly tricky to use the 410 barrel unless shot
with both eyes open (one eye through the scope withh the other long
side the tube body on the target). Haven't been in the squirrel woods
of Minnesota in many years, so the gun gets cleaned, but not used much
any more. Partial to the older ones where the barrel selection is on the
side of the case hardened receiver and walnut stocked.

You have a Monolithic barrel set - preferred. I think the .22 on mine got dropped hard or dinged. Its not monolithic - but yes, on mine - both barrels have very different impact points, but it worked out nicely!

My step father had two different Savage 24's, one was a 22 mag with 410 which someone stole from back window of his truck in the 80's! The other is a 222 Rem with 20 mag. Both guns pointed very nicely and a pleasure to shoot. The 24V a great white tail gun here in S. Oregon and the 22 mag /410 was great for mountain quail... Unfortuneatly for me, my step brother inherited the 222/20 and I go my step father 760 game master in 270 Win.

Good luck with the Savage! :s0155:
