Year of Manufacture: 1933 – 1939 pre-war Model. This model was produced form 1933- 1965.

Please see the Markings and the Stock Configuration section for further explanation.

Caliber: .22 Short, Long and Long Rifle

Markings: The top of the barrel is marked “SAVAGE / SAVAGE ARMS COPORATION / UTICA, N.Y. MADE IN U.S.A. / MODEL 5”. The left side of the barrel is marked “22 SHORT LONG / OR LONG RIFLE”. After WWI the Savage Arms Co. changed their name to Savage Arms Corporation. Then in 1946 Savage moved its manufacturing to Chicopee Falls, MA. Savage still has a much longer history of moves and name changes, but what is important is the Model 5 was made between 1933 – 1965 and since the markings indicate that this rifle was manufactured by Savage Arms Corporation in Utica it had to be prior to the move in 1946 to Chicopee Falls. The Stock Configuration is also pre-war.

Barrel Length: Approximately 26”

Sights / Optics: This rifle is mounted with a rear leaf sight with an elevator and a front blade, both set in dovetail slots. The receiver appears to have been drilled and tapped from the factory for a scope mount and also for Lyman peep sights.

Stock Configuration & Condition: The stock is one piece wood with a checkered pistol grip. The checkering on the pistol grip is only found on pre-war models. The checkering is still sharp with only a light mark on the left wrist. There are only light handling marks and a few light scratches. There are no cracks in the stock and only a small chip missing at the base of the pistol grip. The stock is also held in place by a single screw that could be used as a takedown screw to remove the barrel and receiver from the stock for storage. The LOP measures slightly more than 13” from the front of the trigger to the rear of the plastic buttplate. The buttplate is intact with some light handling marks. The stock rates in about Very Good – Fine Overall condition.

Type of Finish: Original

Finish Originality: Appears to be Factory Original

Bore Condition: The bore is Bright and the rifling is Sharp. There is no apparent erosion.

Overall Condition: This rifle retains about 30% of its metal finish. The balance of the finish shows an even loss from age with light frosting and some pinprick spotting. The finish loss is not centralized in one location leading us to believe that it was not neglected. The loss is uniform, consistent with age in a slightly humid environment. There are only pinprick surface erosion spots throughout, but nothing that would ruin the integrity of the metal. The screw heads are sharp. The markings are clear. Overall, this gun rates in about Very Good – Fine condition.

Mechanics: The action functions correctly. We did not fire this rifle.

Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None

Our Assessment: What an excellent collectable rifle that is also a shooter! This rifle was manufactured just prior to WWII with a limited production stock with checkering on the pistol grip. Great if you are collecting between the Wars memorabilia. The bore is Gorgeous and the action is smooth and should be a great shooter. There is a light patina to the barrel and receiver that give it a great antique appearance. The receiver looks to have been factory drilled and tapped for a scope mount or Lyman sights and together with the takedown screw give it the appearance of a Deluxe .22 for its time. This rifle Is an Excellent conversation piece that is functional.

CA Legal or CA Private Party Transferable: This C&R eligible rifle can be transferred in California.
