Model 99 Savage

Any thoughts on what I could expect to get for a .300 Savage M-99 (1951) in 90% condition in a private sale ? When looking in gun value books and online, values seem to be all over the place. Anybody bought or sold one of these recently ?

Model makes a difference. I see them selling in good condition, original no scope $650 give or take a little. The 99F/featherweight could bring a little more. Condition means a lot with these, original or not, scope or not, all affect price. Ones that have been modified in some way tend to bring less. But maybe someone else will chime in.

A scope will not affect the value of the rifle, the caliber and the condition and model will. Scope is after market and has no impact on price. A mod 99 of that vintage in the condition you say it is in is worth more than $650.00. Take the gun to someone who isn't interested in buying it who can appraise it and be guided by that.

When you are up to your butt in alligators, it is hard to remember your intent was to drain the swamp. Stay focused!

I justsold a 99 EG .300 Savage in 60-70% condition on Gunbroker for $525. It wasn't nice but it didn't have any extra drill holes in it.

The "scope", no. But if it's an older one from before they came drilled and tapped and someone did it afterward - definitely drops the value!

It also depends on what someone is willing to give and if your 90% is his 90%. I picked one up this summer in 300 Savage that was "in great shape" just a little "surface rust". Didnt need it and it looked like it was put in a case wet. No matter how immaculate the description, "surface rust" that was left sit for years leaves permanent etchings. I paid 300. He needed to sell, I didnt need to buy.

Every day you see it on the news. Another felons life needlessly spared by inaccurate fire.

I just saw a bunch of 99's this weekend at a pretty large local gun show and I say the ones similar to your description were running $550-$700.....The money jumps drastically on the rare calibers there was a .358 for almost 3k
