After being without a 30-30 all my life I finally found one.
I took a couple safe queens to the show and came back with a Savage model 99 in 30-30, and yeah a model 99 action is overkill for that cartridge but this is a nice rifle.
It's born on date is 1908 but the bore is super and it has been expertly refinished some time in the past.
I fully intend to use it this fall.
The action locks up like a bank vault and everything appears to be in good working order, shells load and eject with authority and the nifty little round count window works.
Pictures and range report are forthcoming.
That Savage 99 is a very sweet rifle.

My dad: No, it doesn’t kick at all. hands 12 year old me a 5.5lb rifle

Maybe I’ll walk the woods with my open sighted ‘94. Scoped rifles get too heavy 😂
