Savage 1920 .300 Savage
Looking for general information about the Savage 1920 rifle. A friend just got one in .300Sav.
We know the gun was made from 1920 to 1931 (or 29, depending on source)
.250-3000 and .300 Savage
Came in two variants, apparently after 25-26 Savage increased the stock(?) and barrel size to add weight due to complaints about recoil in .300 Sav.
Friends gun has apparently been reblued, has a peep sight, no dovetail on the barrel for a rear sight.
Curious thing, there are no marking on the barrel, not even caliber. I suspect the barrel might be a replacement, because of that.
Looking for general info about these rifles, and particularly what markings ought to be on them, and where.
Any help would be useful, Thanks!
All else being equal (and it almost never is) bigger bullets tend to work better.
