    Brian,
    Looks great! You will really enjoy it. That redfield will work great on it.

    I was hoping you would see this.
    I enjoyed our PM exchange and I know there are a lot of
    guys here that really appreciate your knowledge on these
    99's.
    Thanks!

    Like I said, when you re-install the spool/rotary mag assembly...
    make sure you wind it CCW about one turn and then put the pin back in.
    It should go to zero by itself when you begin winding it.
    Simple!

    I love these 99's.
    When you get one this old that has obviously been carried alot,
    you wish it could tell you it's story.
    Right now, it's sitting here beside me with a 1-3/4 - 5X Redfield
    on it, and I intend to carry it some more.
    I have a 1927 99H 30-30 carbine which was D&Ted by some previous owner. Mounted a 1950s Weaver KV on top and it looks and shoots great. It also was used a lot but not abused. I wish that Savage 99 could talk as well.

    Beauty. Wish I had one. Perfect round for the type, IMHO.

    I'm up to seven 99's now.
    I also have another "bucket rifle " and it's a model F in 308.
    I hope I can get pics of all of them on here eventually...
    I have to get my wife to help with downloading them...
    But I really like the 99 and I'm sure I may get some hate
    mail for this but I find them superior to a 336 in many ways.
    It's hard to talk about the rifle without mentioning the man behind it.
    He was a hunter, inventor, world traveler, and even spent 2 years
    in the Australian outback living with a tribe of Aborigines.

    There are many firsts to the 99.
    It was the first lever action rifle without an exposed hammer.
    It was the first lever action rifle without a tube magazine, and the first
    rifle to ever use it's uniqe internal rotary magazine.
    The Savage was also the first lever action with a coil mainspring, an
    improvement over the leaf springs on other brands. One of its advantages was a faster lock time.
    The 99 was also the first rifle to break the 3000fps barrier,
    with the 250/3000 Savage caliber.



    Here are some links that I believe will be of particular interest to
    fellow '99 fans.

    And this is a link to some very helpful info on identifying various models of the 99...

    I love them myself.
    I have a couple. An 1899 from 1920 in 303, and a 99F from 1926 in 250-3000. Both are Takedowns and Sweet shooters.
    The 250 is a tack driver but won't stabilize bullets over 100 grains. It does okay with some 100's but really shines with 87 and 90 grain bullets.

    I've only got one, a 1950 99EG 250/3000. Very nice shape but been D&Ted. Came with old 4x in Weaver pivot mounts. I put standard mounts and a K10 on it to see how it would group. It passed keeper test and shot Hornady RN 117gr well. I have a Lyman tang but looking for a reciever sight that isn't a bulky affair. I get 300s and 303s fairly often and most TDs. I've got an eye out for a straight stock carbine model in 250. A kid I know has a mint carbine like I want but he won't get off it. I gives him his jollies to have a gun I want. Makes me sick it has to live in a safe full of ARs and such. I keep watching for carbines in any caliber but they are scarce. Any decent 99 old model start at $1000 around here.image.pngimage.png
