This rifle features a copper blade pinned front sight, Marble's folding leaf express sight, engraved breech. Retains 98% original factory blue with razor sharp legends. The barrel markings on this rifle date to a 1926 period gun while the serial number indicates the frame was made in 1912, which would mean the receiver used from factory surplus old inventory. Frame is Grade B with scrolls surrounding panel scene on both sides; the left panel has the exact same panel engraving of antlered game as seen on page 34, figure 318 in the book "The Collector's Guide to the Savage 99 Rifle" by D. Royal. Frame retains virtually all of its original blue as well. Lever retains virtually all of the factory case colors. A Lyman tang sight has been installed. The deluxe checkering is full wrist wrap-around and both panels are checkered. Has a black grip cap and a metal Savage logo serrated buttplate. The triple X walnut is oil finished and besides a couple of minor impressions is in beautiful near mint condition. The forend also exhibits the deluxe checkering in excellent condition. Takedown ring shows a bit of thinning. The combination is accompanied by the .410 22" smoothbore barrel that retains 90% original blue with sharp markings. Housed in a beautiful black leatherette carry case with purple felt lining. Fine bore and action. Information card included states this rifle was made for the President of Fairchild-Hiller, an avid African big game hunter; though we have no way to verify this. From the G. Thomas Puett Collection. CORRECTION: Probable factory restoration when barrel was replaced. Butt plate has been replaced and butt stock has been replaced.
