Hey guys,

I am new to this part of Greybeard and pretty new in general.

I grew up hunting with my brothers Savage .22X.410 over and under. It was pretty much the perfect gun to grow up hunting with. When I grew up we just went "hunting" not "rabbit hunting" or "quail hunting", but more what ever we found that was edible. This was a long time ago when I was a kid back in the woods, but we didn't know much about seasons or anything. Our hunting season was after the first hard freeze. We weren't game hogs or anything. However, with the old Savage, if I saw a squirrel I shot it with the 22. If it hung in the tree, then .410. If a rabbit stopped after a few feet, then .22. If he kept running .410. One duck on the water with the .22 and one in the air with the .410 if I was lucky. You get the picture.

I still love to hunt that way(minus the ducks with the .22/.410 lead). I would love to find an affordable Savage like that or a comparable gun in another brand. Does anyone have any suggestions? What would I expect to pay for a gun like that today?

Thanks,

Trevor

Welcome to the forum. I have seen Savage prices range from $200 to $600. You should check out the 2 major auction sites gunbroker and auctionarms. I have seen several Savages listed.

Good Luck and let us know what you find.

Trevor....I too started hunting with a Savage .22/410 o/u many years ago. It got traded for a SxS 12 ga. and was gone. I wished I had it back. But I did find one at an estate auction some time ago, and in really nice shape. I got it for $235, I think. They sometimes show up at gunshows and in the used racks at gun shops. They are still around, and can be bought, but not as common as they once were. Their collector value is increasing. Keep looking....
