    I don't know if this is the right spot for a discussion of the Savage 1907 .32 caliber pocket pistol.

    Here is a link to the thread at TFL posted here in order to seed a continuing discussion.

    Here is another photo of the gun just after shooting and before cleaning . . .

    If you have one with the metal grips it is not so important, but if you have or get one with the gutta percha (hard rubber) grips be very careful if you try to remove them. Better, DON'T remove them.

    The grips are put on by sliding them into an undercut in the frame, then the rear has a lug that snaps into a notch in the frame. If you must remove them, you lift the rear of the grip, either with a finger from inside the magazine well (the best way) or with a thin blade from the back, and slide the grip rearward. But, hard rubber gets brittle with age, so any attempt to remove the grip, even the right way, often results in a sickening SNAP!

    There are NO original replacement grips, and a tearful letter to Savage will get you sympathy, but no grips. There are some good reproduction grips, but they are not quite the same.

    So be careful and keep the old guns intact.

    Jim

    Jim, this is an older model (circa 1909) with the pressed steel grips. Thanks for the heads up. I've read about those hardened rubber grips.

    I just aquired an 1907 and was curious about the serial number 51xxx and why it was listed as 1922 when in order would have been around 1911. any ideas?
