    I have a Savage Model 219 B(breakopen)single shot 30-30 that I would like some information on. Never see one like this before! On left side of barrel near break open is printed,PROOF TESTED CAL 30-30 . Justunder this and to right is a small circle with letters SP stamped in it and above and to right is even smaller circle with letters I K stamped in it. On left side of gun face,just about two inches to left and above trigger guard is: Savage Modal 219 B,Savage Arms Corporation,Chicopee Falls,Mass. U.S.A. . Just below address and to right is SN 7206 with juat above that and to right is a small circle with 29K stamped in it. Above SN is two rivits and above these is small circle with SP stamped in it. Any information would be greatly appreciated!:confused: :confused:

    I don't recall seeing it spelled out before, but Savage proof tests all their guns and marks them with "SP" for Savage Proof. Perhaps they decided to make the use of a proof test even clearer or that rifle was, or was intended to be, part of a shipment to some country that required that the gun be proved and be marked to show it was done.

    My 1919 Savage Model 1899 .250 Savage says "Proof Tested" and "Special Hi-Pressure Steel" . I like the model 219 and have one in .22hornet with a 20 gauge barrel.:D
