    I was looking at my father's guns a few days ago and came across a Savage that I'm fairly interested in. I was wondering if anyone here could give me an idea about it's value so that I can make him a fair offer on it.

    It's stamped Model 112 and chambered in 7mm Rem Mag. I've tried looking it up, but the closest I can find to a "Model 112" is "Model 12." Is this just a stamping/model mismatch like the "C" on a p95 not being part of the actually model number or is this gun just that obscure?

    Interesting. They have 111s, 114s, and 116s, but I only see 12s on Savage's site.

    I know that the '100' series is for long action and the '10' series (as I call it) is for short action.

    7mm is definitely considered long action. Here is a 114:

    Yeah, their site doesn't mention them at all, and even the other places I've checked that DO mention that such a creature exists don't mention them being chambered in 7mm.

    How old is the rifle?

    I'm honestly not sure but he thinks it's about five or six years old.

    Does it have a heavier barrel? For a while, Savage made heavier barrels in their 112 series. It's just a standard long action, unless you go to a new target action, they're all the same.

    Is it stainless? I found this at gunblast.com - Savage Arms has been building accurate bolt action varmint rifles for many years now based on their famous 110 action in it’s various forms. The accuracy of their 112 varmint gun is legendary among shooters who remember when this was the rifle to beat in the 1970s and ‘80s.

    The three digit numbers 112 111 110 are long action models ,7mm 30'06 etc. The two digit 10 12 11 etc are short action .308 .22.250 .223 etc.

    "Heavier" doesn't begin to describe it. The barrel is huge with some pretty gorgeous fluting, and yes, stainless. I think we nailed it. Thanks, all.

    They made a special 112 target model at one time, does it have iron sights? And the gunsmith guru on the Savage forum says if it's fluted, it was made after 1995. I think Savage discontinued the 112 in 2007.

    I haven't really checked the sights, there's a rather significant scope on it that kind of draws attention away... I'll have to check on that.

    Hey guys, I have a query about the 12 and 112 issue. I have a savage rifle Model 112 caliber 223 REM. The rifle is factory complete with no after-market additions. The receiver is for long action cartridges, but blocked off mag well to use short action ammo. What gives with this setup? Would this have something to do with the cost of the rifle only being $250 + tax brand new?:confused:

    That was probably a closeout, but who knows in 1997. At one time, all rifles were built on long actions. They just put a stop on the bolt, and a block in the magazine. It's a pretty good thing, you can always replace the magazine if you ever want to re-barrel it with a 1-7 twist and shoot long, heavy bullets.
