Many years ago, when I was swapping guns around quite regularly, I had some 22/20 ga Savages. At that time I could see that the ones withnthe barrels fused together full length, out shot the ones with the separated barrls.
It did not occur to me to try wedging the barrels.
Which reminds me of one of my great goofs in passing up a gun.
When I was stationed in Germany in 1965, I stopped by the rod & gun club on post, and looked over the guns. I could have bought a new, lightly engraved Kreighof, .22 hornet/20 ga, for $85, but I passed it up..
I have occasionally kicked myself, ever since...

Savage never made a Stainless 24that I have learned about, at least never released one... BUT they sis have some satin nickel plated guns!
The 17/12 is one of THE rarest 24's then the 357MAXI/20 is another. The pistol gripped, Nickle plated is another rare gun. These command some impressive numbers when in fine condition. North of 1K for sure.

I went to an estate sale last summer here in town in Oklahoma there were 2 24 on the table well used and very abused and they brought 450 each and the buyer took them both I really think on the guns was that they were owned by one of the last suvivers of one of the ships in pearl harbor but all his stuff was really worn and abused had a couple encore rifles and 6 barrels and they brought more than you could buy new for and a gun dealer bought them all.

I had a couple of them a long time ago 22/410 and as I remember they didn't shoot well so I kind of lost interest in them. I didn't pay attention to them when they were making multi cal and ga. I still think the perfect survival gun would be a 22lr/20ga although these days the perfect survival situation would be a pocket full of money and an AR.

|ironglow||Ithink the H&R Versa was a better idea...even though I swapped my .410 barrel for a 20 ga.|

|gene_225||That is my experience with my Stevens 22/410. However, the two barrels don't shoot to close to the same point of aim.|

Years ago I had one of each a 22/20 and a 22/410..the latter being the separated barrels variety. The ones with the barrels solidly fused together shot good..while the separated barrels model was not very accurate.
Although I never tried it, I can see where a shim between barrels could help. The solidly fused one shot good, but I never did try rapid, repeated firing..
