    Default Picked up a new Nov. toy.

    I just got home from picking up a Savage 99F in .308. It's by no means a safe queen. It's been drilled and tapped for a scope and someone cut the stock down. That's actually what made me fall in love with it. The LOP is perfect now!!! I can't decide if I'm going to put new glass on top of it, or leave it with open sights. Might have to find me a peep....... Lot's of options, but looking forward to taking it for a cold November walk.

    Does that make two now? I know you have your Grandfathers. Great rifles. Best of luck with it. Post a pic of it if you can.

    Yes two now. Now I have one I won't mind carrying all day.

    I love lever actions, yet I have never handled a Savage 99. I've read great things about them. I'll have to check them out next time the LGS has one.

    The serial numbers indicate it was manufactured in 1957.

    Nice find. The rifle was drilled and tapped at the factory.
