Default Savage 24F Story

As y’all know I picked up a Hornet/20 a few months ago. I was traveling in deep I mean DEEP East Texas (where I grew up) and found a 223/12 at a Cash America Pawn shop. It was really cheap so I asked to handle it. Upon looking at it, I noticed a shim of metal was welded between the barrels. Wish I had asked to snap a photo. Needles to say I didn’t snag it

IIRC earlier models had the barrels brazed together and later ones were only connected at the ends, as to cost cutting of production.

Real trucks dont have spark plugs.

Someone may have installed the shim as a way to regulate the barrels.

All of my favorite creatures have white bottoms.

Here in Mich. 24s are really pricey, at least I think so. I had several yrs ago I paid $35. Around here they go anywhere from $400-$600 or more if it is a sought after combination. I guess I am showing my age.

This was a “newer” one like mine with a synthetic stock. I totally would have snatched it up if it wasn’t for the weld. Price was half what I paid for mine and 223 is so cheap to shoot

Here in Oklahoma they are selling for 400 to 650 and I really look for them to go up more price . On the Last Alaskan Charlie is displaying his dads old 24 that he had cashed with extra parts in a barrel as a type of survival gun shoots it some kills a rabbit with the 20 gage I said then there goes the price up. I really think that is what pushed the price up the Nagints up after the woman Agnes on life below zero is seen using one in all the shows now they bring 350 to 450 where several years ago the gun shows were full of them for 100 take your pic there were crates of them now try and find one for under 300. Why cant we come up with something that will increase in price and make us a few extra bucks?

I saw Charlie bring that gun out of the barrel. The 24 is probably still the best survival type gun out there. I have a chiappa 22/410 which seems to be ok, I just like the looks of the 24s better. I have never shot the chiappa, they do make a 22/20ga and the military survival combos in different cal/ga. The new 42 is nice and light but I'm not crazy about the 410, 20ga is better and cheaper to shoot.

My first 24v in .223/20 was $600 at the LGS and my second in .357/20 was over a thousand including transfer fee off Gun Broker so the prices you cite seem nice.

I guess its all relative gene, they clearly are trading hands at these prices. At a recent gun show I passed up a nice 22/410 synthetic stock for 350, I guess I should have bought it. A guy had a 22/20 he said had a stainless receiver and was like new for 600. I really don't know much about the 24s. I don't know if the receiver was stainless or plated but it was really nice.
