Title: Internet Data Sources
Post by: jrbauerjr on May 23, 2020, 02:58:36 AM
There are a number of sources of data on the internet that can be a help to those of us that like old weapons. A few of the ones I’ve found are:

LeeRoy Wisner. A retired gunsmith rebuilds a couple of 219s

http://www.leeroysramblings.com/Savage_model_219-220.html

Tremendous collection of out of print gunsmithing books including Frank de Hass – Single shot idea book

https://www.practicalmachinist.com/vb/gunsmithing/old-books-229655/

Those of you that are into reloading: M. D. Smith's reloading pages

http://www.reloadammo.com/

What do you do when you browse to one of these pages… Download a copy of  cutepdf, it installs as a printer and gives you a pdf of whatever you’ve browsed to….

Have fun and happy hunting,  Jim Bauer

Jim, this is really good information!  Thanks for sharing with us.  I just read Mr. Wisner's article.  The reworked 219 is amazing after the condition he found it in before restoration.

 A very interesting article--thanks for finding it and posting it!  Learned a couple of things that would  be of use if I ever find another 219 or 220 that just NEEDS restoration....
