    They are my "thing". I was wondering if anyone else here has the bug?

    I love my little savage 24. .22/.410 Does that count?

    YOU BET!!! I love them, too. They're great game getters. ;)

    Savage 24 in .22WMR/.410 here. Great little gun.

    I put a lot of meat on the table with one when I was young, had a new baby, and was dirt poor. They're an American Classic.

    Here is why I'm always broke. I just received this 1955 Sauer LUX drilling with a 6XHensoldt in Suhler claw mounts, a left barrel 22mag insert barrel (einstecklauf in German) in 16gauge 2 3'4" chambers and 6.5X57R rifle, a close cartridge to the 257 Roberts. The price was right, and it was my 65th birthday, so what the heck? :rolleyes:


    I had to sell my Sauer 3000 drilling in 12ga and 30-06 to buy this gun and one other drilling...so 2 for 1. ;)

    I have had a drilling for a long time.

    I used to hunt bear and grouse in VT but now there are no grouse or bear there.

    Now all I do is talk about it on the net and carry it on a farm once in a while.

    My absolute favorite firearm is a Springfield M6 Scout (.22LR/.410)

    If the house caught fire, the family was safe outside, the family albums and my M6 would be coming out on the run back in to save stuff.

    You guys that love the old Model 24's......good news....Jeff Quinn from Gunblasts reviewed the new version combo gun by Savage. It is the Model 42 (.22 over .410 with a polymer stock) Not as purty as the old 24, but looks like a real "woods" gun. Lighter than the originals too.

    I keep pretending that someday I'll be able to afford a 2x16+1x9.3x74R drilling.

    I like farting around on the range with my Savage 24, mine is a 20g & .22lr combo.
    I particularly get a giggle out of running CCI CB shorts in it opposite the occasional 20g round


    ... it keeps the other people on the range guessing

    I have a baikal MP94 in 12 ga/.308. I haven't fielded it yet, though. The shotgun barrel is very accurate with slugs. The .308 barrel is going to take some load development.

    Another Springfield M6 here. The .22lr/.410 version.
    I am considering the new Savage Model 42 in .22 Magnum/.410.

    Three, all Savage 24 derivatives....first, an original Stevens 22/410, second, a Savage 24DL 22/20' and finally a Savage 24 V in 222/20. All accurate, all game getters. I've found, after about fifteen of these things that, for me, the older ones with the rifle barrel grazed full length to the shot barrel are more accurate. The 222 will do an honest inch and a half. None have ever had good triggers.

    The 24 in 20/222 is a great combination, IMO. :cool:
