I don't know if this will help or not. According to the Standard Catalog of
Firearms, the Model 99E (E for economy) was produced from 1960-84. However, the SN you show does not match with those dates. Regardless, early Savage factory information indicates there should not be a big difference in takedown procedures. With that in mind you may want to see the NRA Guide to Rifles and Shotguns. Instructions there may help you.

You can find full takedown instructions in the following book:

" The Gun Digest Book of Firearms Assembly/Disassembly
Part IV: Centerfire Rifles
2nd Edition. Page 407
By: J. B. Wood "

I bought mine at Sportsmans Warehouse. They can also be ordered
through Barnes & Noble, or Borders Books. Brownells and Midway may
also sell them.

This book has full takedown instructions for 66 different rifles.
Very handy to have, and money well spent. 5 books in the series.
$20 each.
