I don't recall seeing it spelled out before, but Savage proof tests all their guns and marks them with "SP" for Savage Proof. Perhaps they decided to make the use of a proof test even clearer or that rifle was, or was intended to be, part of a shipment to some country that required that the gun be proved and be marked to show it was done.

Thanks for that into Jim I have been trying to research this rifle for quite sometime now and got nowhere. I wanted to wait an see iif I coul possible find out on the internet myself,before I Pay Savage for the information and then they maynot even have it:confused: The address that is on gun is old address of old J.Stevens Tool and Arms which Savage bought in 1920.:banghead: Have a good one now!00Russell

My 1919 Savage Model 1899 .250 Savage says "Proof Tested" and "Special Hi-Pressure Steel" . I like the model 219 and have one in .22hornet with a 20 gauge barrel.:D

My 219 has 2 barrels, .22 hornet and 20 gauge, you interchange them! From 50's I think.
