    I ran across a Savage Model 2190 breech loading 30-30 rifle today. I came home and did a Yahoo search (don't like Google) and a Gun Broker search and found nothing. It's in reasonably good shape and looks like it was designed as a beginner hunting rifle. Probably a mail order catalog item from the 60s or 70s. I'm curious to know if they were plentiful, not so plentiful, etc. Trying to put a general value on it for a friend. Any input would be appreciated.

    You are describing a Savage Model 219 manufactured 1938 to 1965 and chambered in 30-30 as well as several other chamberings. Try a Google of Savage 219 and see if that isn't what you have.

    Bingo, mystery solved. Yahoo (sorry, no Google for me) gave me hits for the 219 but I swear there was a zero stamped right behind the 219 on the receiver. Strange.

    The sites I looked at have this rifle as a hot/cold item, you either like it or you don't. Any comments on the 219 are welcome.

    They are a good simple no frills single shot rifle. The 30-30 was the most common chambering. They are more sought after in the chamberings like 22 Hornet. They have their little niche like other similar guns. Selling one won't put the kids / grand kids through college but may buy a few books. :)

    Oh, OK. Let's see enter the Savage 219 into the search engine of your choice. :)

    Thanks for the great info. We didn't think we had anything special, just trying to establish a fair price to offer for the lot that includes this rifle.

    Now it's on to trying to figure out a fair market value for the Enfield rifle that has been sporterized and has the deceased's social security number etched into the receiver and stock. :cuss:

    The Enfield will be hard to call, there was a time before identity theft was popular, to place one's SSN on their personal property. The rifle could serve as just a shooter or parts gun. Personally, in my area, I would hang a price of $250 on the Savage and see what happens and maybe $300 on the Enfield. You can always come down on the asking price. With guns like this, my experience is, any gun on any given day is worth what someone is willing to pay, no more and no less. Again, merely what I would do in my area.

    This is a photo of the Savage 219. They've been customized by knowledgeable smiths for many years. In my opinion, the styling is elegant.

    219s are nice little guns. I've had two of them and always keep my eyes open for another...(6 grandkids now, you know...)

    Could it be that what you were looking at was a 219D which could have easily been mistaken as a "O."

    The 219/220 and the 219A/220A were striker fired while the 219B/220B and newer had an internal hammer.
