I recently discovered an old pump .22 that belonged to my father when he was a boy (I'm 62, so it's old). It is NOT for sale--I don't care what it's worth, and in fact it probably isn't worth much. Niether he nor his parents would have had much money to spend (it's also got plenty of cosmetic problems: this is a gun that was used if not used up). I know for a fact that the gun was made before 1930 (from personal info carved into stock) and I'm pretty sure it's a Savage model 25 or a Savage knock-off. There are no brand names whatever on the gun but the shape, style, and details all match pretty well with pix I've seen online of the Savage (big slotted screw on the right side of the action, safety behind the trigger guard, octagon barrel, sights, etc.). It has very few markings. On the top face of the barrel between the sights is the word "PREMIER". Just behind the rear sight it's marked "22S. L&LR." There is a serial number stamped on the underside just ahead of the trigger guard: 13042K. I'd like to know what make it is. But most of all, I'd like to know if there is any chance at all that a good gunsmith can put it in servicable condition (there's not s speck of rust; the bluing is worn where you'd expect). My youngest son is much too old to have this as a first gun, but he's a very good shooter and is in fact a rangemaster, so if there is any way I could give him this gun in working condition it would please me a great deal. I apologize for the length of my post. I have never learned the trick of saying a lot with a little.
