Just had a question for you guys/gals that look at a lot of Savage 99's

My father has had a hankering for one for some time and I think I found a decent "shooter" in .300 with an asking price of $499. It has a 1936 date of manufacture and the bluing is all there but appears dull - no rust or pitting. Non-checkered version with smooth wood and the wood has quite a bit of handling marks. Schnabel forend with original butt plate that has some pitting/patina. No cracks at the tang and no extra receiver holes which really attracted me and has the original buckhorn sight. Locks up real tight and the bore is excellent.

Anyway, I know the EG is the most common model but would like to know if this is a fair price for, what seems to be, a pretty solid "shooter". I understand values vary by region but, on the whole, would this be an average price for a common model?

Thank you for any comments. ;)
