    Hello everybody, I acquired this via a pal & i wanted to share it with everybody.

    This is a sweet pre-46' Savage Model 6A
    My pal rescued this from bubba before he could disgrace it any further.
    This is from Savage Arms Co. Utica NY. whica date it pre 46', before the move to Chichpee.

    This is a beauty, & i am glad to add it to my gun cabinet. They just don't make them like this anymore. most of the newer ones i see these days, look as though their made of pop cans & plastic.

    I pulled these specs from

    Manufacturer: Savage Model 6A
    Factory: Utica NY.
    Patents: 2094577 / 2223093
    Bumper: Solid
    Receiver & Sights: Gold bead/blade front. Dovetail slot for rear
    Smooth receiver top. No provision for scope mount.
    Receiver plug: Flat metal.
    Gills: 8 left, 1 right
    Charging Handle: Large round concave with grooves and serrations around outside
    Trigger Mechanism: Long (I guess)
    Lifter: Solid. Coil spring.
    Stock: Walnut w/ engraving
    Trigger Guard: Cast recessed
    Magazine & Capacity: Tube with cartridge port / 17rds: 16 tube 1 chamber

    Before my pal rescued this, bubba had JB welded a weaver side rail scope mount on the receiver. I traded my pal 2 of my r/c boats for her & brought her home.

    I cleaned up all the excess jb with my dremel & gave her a thorough cleaning & douching. The gunsmith said the scope rail mount was square & true, and we may as well leave it on there till it comes loose, if it ever does. Then remove it & do the scope mounting right.

    The scope is a real nice BSA Classis 3x9x40 variable power scope. Currently she's sighted in @ 150 yards, and shoots beautifully. The bore is tightly rifled and is shiny clean. I am actually surprised this came out this clean.

    I will be adding additional pics soon. I just ran out of daylight Enjoy !!!

    Somewhere in the past, someone put that same scope mount on my yard sale Savage Model 1924. Unfortunately, it is drilled & tapped.

    Thanks guys. Since the bluing is gone, i am gonna clean up the receiver & barrel, then shine it up with mother's. It already looks like stainless. Hey cj, take the 1924 to the smith, & have him fill the d&t's in with a wirefeed.

    I'll be posting a thread on my Savage Steven's 887 too.........
