Savage 219

Working with a Savage single shot that showed up in a bag.

Sometimes you see it coming, sometimes you don’t. That one customer or shooting buddy that walks in sheep faced with a bag or box in his hand. He will rarely admit that he took the gun apart and can’t get it back together. It always seems to be his kid or his brother-in-law that did it, but there it is, a bag that contains a bunch of gun parts. Sometimes it is simply, “Can you put this back together?” Other times it’s, “How much will you give me for this?” Either way, it is always trouble. Most times it’s a cheap old gun you don’t really want and rarely are all the parts present but, hey, the guy is a regular or a friend so you swallow hard and buy the darned thing.

I recently acquired a Savage 219 single shot in a bag in exactly this way.
