Yes, as long as it was pre-1950 s/n 566,000.Siskiyou said:I have to agree with SavageT. After seeing your post I did a little research in my library and could find no mention of a Model 99 M. If that is a none standard marking it sure could add value to your rifle.
When finding nothing regarding a "99 M" I held off posting because I was sure that SavageT has far more knowledge of the Model 99 and would be posting. My resource material included old Gun Digests and "The Gun Digest Book of Modern Gun Values." A lot of Model 99's are listed starting with the 99A and progressing down the list, but no Model 99M.
SavageT could the serial # range on his rifle help you date it?
