    Anyone know how I can date a Savage 24C Series N "Campers Companion"? The serial number is B1518XX. Not finding any help on the Savage ID sites. Anyone here have an idea?
    And if this is the wrong place I apologize but since it is a combi gun I couldn't figure out where would be best!
    Thanks

    Have you tried looking for a date code on the frame?

    Do you have any pictures you can post? It might help.

    Thanks, but I have already been on there as well as every other site I can find with no help. Here it is with its full sized brethren and apart. It appears never fired or if so only to test it. The barrel block shows an SP in an oval but that does not show up on any Savage site.

    Those date codes are for pre '68 firearms, then a law required an actual serial number on guns, which he has.

    So his is post '68.
