View Full Version : Savage 487T info needed

December 14, 2004, 02:12 AM
I just received a Savage Model 487T, Series 'A' rifle but I can't seem to find any information about it. The SN starts with the letter 'D'. Where can I find out the date and value of this gun?

I found the following on the Savage Arms Website (www.savagearms.com) by clicking on the FAQs section of the Customer Service tab:

Q. Where do I find information on older model Savage products?

A. Savage Arms is no longer able to access historical information on older Savage, Stevens, or Fox firearms. This information may be available through John Callahan who is an independent arms historian and is not an employee of Savage Arms. Mr. Callahan does not provide parts, gun smith services or offer a locator service for firearms or parts. Please send a detailed letter with:

-Your name and address
-A phone number where you can be contacted if necessary
-The model and/or serial number if available
-Any other pertinent information

Mr. Callahan will respond with a letter detailing his services. Send the
letter to:

John Callahan

Q. Are there any reference sources for Savage historical information?

A. Yes, there is a book by Jay Kimmel titled, Savage & Stevens Arms, Collector's History. For more information on where to purchase this book, contact, CoryStevens Publishing, Inc., 15350 NE Sandy Blvd, Portland, OR, 97230, or phone 503-328-9339.

I hope that you find this information to be useful.

Good luck, and good shooting!
