View Full Version : need help on Savage .22

November 29, 2000, 12:31 AM
Hello all, I have a bolt action rifle with the following markings;
Manufactured by Savage Arms Corp. Utica N.Y. U.S.A.
Patented Nov 28, 1905 Sep 7, 1915 Sep 4, 1917 Nov 20, 1917
22-long rifle

All these markings are on the top of the barrel. The rifle is apparently fed with a detachable box magazine which apparently holds 5 rounds maximum. There are four screws (please forgive my newbie terminology) for a scope mount on the left side of the barrel, and apparently a spot for iron sights on the top of the barrel. There is no serial number that I can find anywhere. A friend of mine who saw the rifle said it looked like it might be a .22 trainer for the Springfield rifle.

Any info on the origin, care and maintenance, disassembly, heck any info of any sort for this rifle would be very appreciated.
Thanks a lot,

Sounds like you might have a variation of the Model 19, possibly the Model 19 NRA variant. This was a .22 caliber bolt-action with a 25" barrel, detachable magazine and full length military style stock. Approximately 50,000 manufactured between 1919 and 1937. The Model 19L is the same with a Lyman receiver sight. The Model 19M has a 28" barrel fitted with telescope sight bases. These variants mfgd 1933 to 1942.

Thanks a lot fal308! I looked up the model 19 found a picture and bang theres the rifle. NRA version with the full stock. This rifle was given to my father from my great-grandfather when he was about 10 which would be 1942 which gibes with the manufacturing dates. Time to work it up and take it to the range.
My sincerest thanks,
