    Instead of getting into models and variations I thought Id take down a few 99s and have a look at the changes made to them over the years from when John Marlin was putting them out for Savage in 1896 right up till they were discontinued. When a rifle goes through over 750 different procedures before its made into a rifle some things are going to change over such a vast span of age and manufacturing, here are some of mine which are an 1895, an 1899 pre-90,000, a pre-mil 99 308 and an A series 99C 22-250.

    Back in the day there weren't a lot of high end scopes to choose from when a person wanted to hunt game with their 99s. First off, maybe I should apologize for being young and some people may remember buying one of these scopes brand new. Having a period scope on any 99 isn't a tricky problem, but is, in a way, sometimes hard to come by. Ill start off with the older scope choices and mounts for the old 1899s and then get into the 50s and 60s offerings.

    All this talk about the old Savage rifles, and rarely do we hear about what they were used for. For as far back as Savage started to sell the Model 1899 and other models, they were advertised beyond their actual use. Ads of the 1895s with kills of such animals as Lions and elephants were amazing to the general hunting population. Even when the 22 H.P. was introduced awe inspiring commercialism was Savages mainstay with ads of the little Imp taking leopards in Africa. ...

    Like all American gun makers, Savage was doing it's part for the U.S. war effort during World War II. They made weapons, naturally, and most of these were Thompson sub-machine guns, fifty caliber machine guns, thirty caliber machine guns, various twelve gauge shotguns, and bomb fuses. Almost three million items were turned out by the Savage Arms Company and it's divisions from 1941 to 1945.

    Well, where do I begin? I guess well start low and work our way up to the last 99 offerings. First off is the model 1892, this is an easy one to identify, it will have a serial number under 10.000 and the pads on the sides of the receiver will be rounded instead of pointed like the model 1899's and 99's. The forearm is very slender and rises to the receiver very sharply. ...
