Savage 219

I have a Savage model 219 with a 30-30 barrel and a 20 ga. barrel. Both barrels and stocks are stamped A-X37, does this mean it was built in 1937? Also, the 30-30 is stamped model 219, the 20 ga. is stamped model 220? What does the two different stamps mean? I know they made a model 219 and a 220 and so forth, why is the shotgun stamped 220 but yet still fits the 219 receiver!

The rifle was the model 219. The shotgun was the model 220. Same action.
The combination set was listed under 220 in my old Stoegers but each caliber had its own designation. .30-30 + 20 ga was a 223.
I figure somebody bought a gun with one barrel and added the other later.

What does the "AX37" represent? Both barrels and forearm are stamped with that number? It was before serial numbers so it isn't a serial number.

I can't tell you what the AX37 represents. But the 219 and 220 receiver's were different
as to the firing pin holes. The 220 had a larger shotgun type of firing pin. The 219 had the smaller rifle type firing pin. The shotgun barrels will fit into the receiver.

I have a 219 with a 30-30 barrel and a extra 16 gauge barrel.

Please note Boyd's has replacement stocks for the rifle. They are the ones for the Model's 94 shotgun and the model 24 O/U rifle/shotgun.

I have a perfect 20 ga. barrel and forearm for the 20 ga. both are impeccable, the barrel is just freshly blued and the forearm is freshly restored. I have no need for the shotgun barrel and forearm if anyone is interested. Shoot me an offer.
