Savage Model 79
Today my friends dad was nice enough to give me his old Savage Model 79 pump action 12 gauge shotgun with a ventilated rib, engraving of birds, 28 inch barrel, and full choke. I just cleaned it and it has a very smooth action. I was wondering if anybody could give me some technical information, (the year(s) it was produced, how popular it was, what gauge they were chambered in, etc.) The serial number is E031523
Thanks, and any information will help!
