Hiya Guys, So I've been looking to replace the Savage Stevens model 6A that I wound up selling a few years ago, because I've been kicking myself in the proverbial butt ever since. Well, I dropped a listing on our local gun Grapevine yesterday looking for a nice old 22 rifle that shoots 22 shorts, 22 long and 22 LR in a nice wood stock, just to see what would turn up. Sure enough about an hour later a guy hit me up with this little model 87a, after talking with him about it I jumped all over it. It's an old gilgun and identical to my old 6A in every way. My 6A was from Savage in Utica New York Circa 46'. The 87A is from Savage Arms Chicopee, mass . Circa 46'-56' just after they moved to Chicopee. Not only does this have the distinctive gill slits on either side of the receiver, it also has the bolt delay trigger. After you fire a round as long as you keep the trigger pulled back the bolt will stay back as well. As soon as you reset the trigger the bolt closes as well. He also recently had this into Buckhorn Gun and Pawn where they serviced it, replaced the extractor and the springs. The barrel is tight and clean and the rifling is sharp so this thing is practically as good as new. Even though the pictures don't show it due to the lighting he refinished the stock and put several coats of urethane on it, it looks pretty nice. Now I just need to find a scope mount for it and a little 3x9x40 to finish it off. In anticipation of picking this up today I also bought 1580 rounds for it last night for $100. That'll give me a pretty good start with this old gem.
