    Looks to be a Savage model 1903. Made from 1903 to 1916 and made for1 year somewhere in the early 1920's from what I have read.

    Yes, it is a Savage Model 1903 pump action repeater. In spite of the odd appearance (Phil Sharpe says, "the general impression...is that "something is missing.") The weak point is the magazine, which is not as sturdy as it should have been and which, in later years could not be replaced if lost or damaged. Still, they were pretty popular and well liked. The original price was $14 (1907) for the standard model, but Savage also made them in fancy grades with prices ranging up to $130.over the list price for the fancy grades. (That was $130 in 1914 money, remember!)

    The calibers were .22 Short, .22 Long, and .22 Long Rifle, and they could be used interchangeably, something not always true of other pump action .22 rifles.
