Hi there,
I hope someone can help me find out about a gun I was given. It sat in my grandmother's closet for years & she just got tired of having it there..anyhow
I was told it is a .22 Savage Model 25 Repeating Rifle. I have scoured the internet to find out more information, evene the Savage Arms website.
Any ideas about where to look to research & find out if I can even shoot this gun?
Any info greatly appreciated!

You didn't mention what type action this rifle has, but I looked in 23rd addition of the Blue Book of Gun Values and found a model 25 Savage. It's described as: Model 25 Slide Action - .22 S, L, LR xa.., 24 in. octagon barrel, open sight, takedown, hammerless, tube mag., plaoin pistol grip stock. Mfg 1925 - 1929. The value is listed at $275 for 100%, $235 for 98%, $200 for 95%, $150 for 90%, $125 for 80%, $75 for 70%, and $65 for 60%. Doesn't go into any other detail. Hope this helps.

Hi there Jaybo,
Thank you so much for your reply. I think that it is a "slide action " repeating rifle.
I guess I should get my hands on a book such as yours to furthure investigate.
I can pretty much tell that the condition is NOT 100% , as a matter of fact I think it was reconditioned.
Either way, I'm hoping that I can at least have some fun with it at the target range.
Thanks again!
Lynda

Thanks Jaybo & Oeastrix,
You guys are SOOOOO fast with your replies..I've been trying to figure out how to get the reply to the right person!
:confused:
As this rifle looks like it has been recondintioned & does not look ( to my very novice eye) anywhere close to 100%..more like maybe 50% or less.
I guess this will be something fun to take to a rifle range, learn how it works.
Then I can try to "bag my limit on 'them thar' paper targets- I here they make a great stew!"
:joker:
Maybe I should get me hands on a guide book..like the one you guys use..Any Suggestions?
Thanks!!
P.S. Oneastrix, you are correct- I AM an native of the "Lone Star" State!
:cheer:

Lynda; I would suggest only shooting standard velocity in it, there are some problems that might happen with high velocity. I have only found 2 variations in this model, early guns had a forearm with a screw on each side and late guns had two screws on the right side only. Here's some more info - Old Savage Pump 22 - RimfireCentral.com Forums Would appreciate seeing pictures just in case it has some variation I haven't came across yet.

I've got a 25, they were harder to find due to them being offered and then discontinued very shortly after introduction to bring in the model 29's.

Here's a pic of my 25 (top) and my 29 below it.
