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...

IG - Don't feel bad, I remember the $95 Stainless steel Rolexes, that were sold in the PX's in 1969. Stupid me, I thought it was too expensive, and purchased a Seiko instead for $50. But then again, I remember I was paid $99 a month as an E-1. My wife calls them "could-da, should-da" moments. Tells me to forget about it, and move on. A little side note, I lost the Seiko, I bought back in 1969, when I dropped my bike on a highway, after I got out of the service. I was so happy, I walked away from that accident, that I didn't notice the watch had snapped off my wrist, until quite a but later, when it was too late. I went back to the accident scene, and found pieces of the watch.

Gene - I have a 24C (22LR/20gauge), the sights are adjusted for the 22, for the 20 gauge, I just point and shoot like a regular shotgun, close enough is good enough. I never fired a slug from the shotgun barrel tho.

cwlongshot 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.

DEACONLLB 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.

105745 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.

ironglow 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..

You are right, it is relative and it depends on what you are looking at. The .22lrs I have had were bought a long time ago, and were fairly inexpensive at the time and were disposed of inexpensively as well. Times and prices change.
