Savage 99 value

Hey guys, a buddy offered up his Dad's Savage 99 in .250 to me. Its a late 50's, early 60's model. He doesn't hunt and this is a bucket list rifle for me. Rifle is in good shape with a few expected handling marks. Any idea of a rough value?

I don't have ducks. I don't have rows. I have squirrels. And they're drunk.

After some queries on the web, it appears the .250's bring quite a premium.

If I'm searching the right gun on Gunbroker, they are bringing a pretty good coin.

If it's all original, not drilled and tapped for a scope, you could expect to pay $500 and up depending on the condition. Best to take it to an honest gun dealer and see what he says. That 250-3000 is a good caliber if you like to reload your own ammo.

Which model 99 is it? And has it been altered or redone in any way?

I have seen .250's going for anywhere from $900 up to $1500.

just my point of view: I have had an original Winchester 1885 highwall on my "bucket list" for 35 years. as it ends up, I acquired a few of them in the last 8 months. I had one thing that I stuck with, and that was that the gun be all original. price? not too concerned with it as long as it was "reasonable" and not way out there. I now have some original rifles that I can shoot and enjoy and know if I ever decide to part with them I will get my money back or my family will.

There is an article in The American Rifleman The Little Savage: .250-3000. It's a timely, and good, read.

page 58.....

Good night Chesty, wherever you are......

At some point in time, Savage did drill and tap from the factory. I do not know when that started.

But that aside, you have the opportunity to own a really cool old(er) gun, a gun than few if any of your peers will own, and a gun for which you can get history for and can carry the stories forward. To me that is worth something. Get it, gather up all the history and family stories that go with it. Right them down. And keep it going when you pass it on.

Your kid, grandson, or great grandson will appreciate that 50 years from now!
