    Hi, I am wondering if anyone has any knowledge of when the Model 1907
    was ended, by serial number range, and the Model 1917 was begun?
    How long was the Model 1917 produced before the designation of the
    model was placed on the left side of the frame? It seems a bit difficult to
    find the serial numbers by the year of production, after 1920. I have
    checked some of the websites, but this information is not always
    available. Perhaps, it will have to be a pistol by pistol research.
    I am a new collector of the Savage Pistol, but I enjoy the research aspect.

    Welcome to THR. The Model 1907 started with serial number 1 and ran to 229800 in 1920. The Model 1917 was started with 229801 and ran to 259472 in 1928. For the Model 1907, a block of numbers were skipped, from 130000 to 150000. These serial numbers ended up being used in the Model 1915 production run. However only some 6520 Model 1915's were produced in that serial number block. Another block of numbers (600), was also skipped, from 246020 to 246620 during the Model 1917 production run.
