    I have a Savage 1899 takedown in .250-3000 that was my grandfather's. Ser. # 2415xx, and I've dated it to around 1920 or '21, although another source says 1922. Based on your serial #, yours should be earlier. However, if yours is a Model 99, instead of a Model 1899, then it's later. The Model 1899 became the Model 99 around the time that my rifle was made, 1920 to 1921.

    Ckeck out http://www.savage99.com/ for more info.

    Enjoy.

    I have a model 99 250-3000 that was my grandfather's as well, serial # is 6577xx and looks like it is hand stamped as the numbers are not in line with each other, not sure. Dad says he thinks gramps bought it new either just after or just before WWII but I know little else about it. Mine is not a take down but has the slide safety on the lever. I let a friend of mine carry it this past deer season and he harvested the first deer with it in 20 yrs, sure grampa would have been happy, great gun still.

    The list in the Blue Book says 1919.

    212,500 to 229,000.

    A 250/3000 is the classic Savage Model 99 cartridge/rifle combo - and about the most desirable, IMHO. :cool:

    the 250-3000 is the most desirable of all the 99's , it could be worht a lot of money. you should get a camera digital, 3 meg or higher, and put some big clear pics here. we will tell you it's possible value. could be many thousands, especially if in good shape, with nice wood.

    I recently checked with a dude that is a 99 Savant. he said, though it came in many diff models, the 250/3000 and the 243, were the two most valuable. Depending on model designation, and other add ons the rifle might have, you could sometimes up the value 2 or 2.5 times, its standard retail value. So you really wanna get that thing checked out.

    250 takedowns have a bit of panache about them but really the solid frames are better in terms of accuracy and durability, If you are really throwing a 100 rounds a week thru that gun, consider that the threads of the takedown h ave a thousandth or so gap to allow you to hand turn it off and that much shooting is wearing down a fair amount, The takedown model was for the train riding sportsman who wanted to get from his city locale to the country without causing much ado. The design is wonderfully simple using both solid and interrupted threads as time went on.

    The two best rounds in the Classic 99 savage for deer are the .250 and .300 savage. Others available are the 30-30, the 38-55, the 32-40. the 303 savage, and the .22 hipower imp. Later versions were stretched to accomodate the .243, the .308 and the .358. (there may be a couple I am missing but this is the bulk) The .308 case family is longer than the earlier cartridges and necessitated some re-engineering to make them fit. Although on the grounds of modernization it was considered a good thing, the changes altered the feel of the gun and the action movement was longer. In practical matters, in it's intended use, the longer cartridges add nothing, the .250 is a better deer killer than the 243, the .300 works just as good as the .308 and the one cartridge that would have been better was the .358 which no one bought.

    IMHO, there exist no better rifle for northern and wooded deer than the 99 savage, longer range than a 94 winchester, just as smooth to handle and just darn fine good looking guns.

    well, i talked to another dude, I dont know how much can money transfers over to us, but if it 1000 dollars. u.s., then he is about right, a few bucks , one way or the other. If you wanna sell , it is up to you, but it will only go up in value.
