    I am looking for savage model '99 authentic sling swivels and the fold down peep sight aperature for a lyman no.1 tang sight.

    Keep checking the auction sites (that includes E-Bay!!) The guys from 24 Hour Campfire.com are always coming up w/Lyman stuff.....sorry that I can't come up w/anything solid on swivals. What vintage/model year are you searching for? Do you have Murray's book, it would help I.D. which model and year?

    savageT, thanks for the tip on 24 Campfire.com.
    The swivels are for a model 1899 in 300 savage manufactured in 1937. The tang sight aperature is for the tang sight on the same rifle.

    Orion,
    I believe that if your rifle was made in '37 it was NOT an 1899. Savage stopped making 1899's around 1926/27.

    Can you describe the gun to us....bbl. length, type of sights, etc.(Check out <savage99.com> site for photos) location/description of all lettering, shape of forearm and buttplate, with or without pistol grip, checkering, takedown or solid barrel. You mentioned a peep-tang sight....did it have a Lyman 1A originally, or added later? Lets see if we can get a better I.D.
