    I have an old Savage (I guess its a 24) that is 22lr on top and 410ga on bottom.



    1. what is this gun worth (I'd never sell it, just curious)?
    2. Does Savage or anyone else still make these?

    Had one when I was a kid, wish I still had it. Is it a model 24? and which model? A good guess would be about $450 in really good conditition.

    My book says it is, Manufactured from 1950 to 1965:
    Exc $450, V.G. 375, Good 275, Fair 150, Poor 100

    My wife has one.
    It is a 30-30 over 20 GA.

    And she is DEADLY with it!

    Mmmm,

    these guns, as noted above, do have residual value but are not what you might call an investment gun.

    I always thought these were good ideas for many people.

    I really want on of those guns, preferably in 22 Hornet/,.223 over a 20/.410 gauge.

    Pyro- I don't think they stacked anything but .22 over the .410. I may be wrong tho. I've seen lots of calibers over 20 and 12, and we currently have a .22 over 20ga in great shape for $450 I believe. I've always thought the .223 over 12ga would make an ideal turkey gun !!

    1) About $450 in my local gun shops.

    2) No. Savage stopped making such things a while ago. Later models were kinda cheap compared to the older ones, though.

    My aunt used a .222/20-gauge with a Weaver 2-7x for fox hunting. Always did the trick:).

    I had one when I was a kid, it was the 24C it had a 22 LR barrel on top and a 20 gauge barrel on bottom. Killed a lot of squirrels, rabbits and a few quail with that gun, wish I still had it. You could store ten 22 LR shells and 1 20 gauge shells in the buttstock.

    Back in 1985 I bought one for my dad for Fathers Day, it was 30-30 over a 20 Gauge. I paid 165.00 for it then. To this day I have to sneak it out of his house to shoot it.

    "You could store ten 22 LR shells and 1 20 gauge shells in the buttstock." Mouser, did it have the barrel selector on the hammer, or on the side of the receiver ??

    My barrel selector is on the sleeve. What does that say about the gun?
