Hello, I was wondering if you might have the metal parts that fit in the forearm?

Hi, I'm Joe From Ludowici, Ga. I've inherited a Savage 219 and am currently working with it to "bring it up to snuff". I have the 30-30 barrel. I've just replaced the stock. I have a model 220 16 ga barrel for this rifle. I'm needing to obtain a forend for the 16 ga barrel. Looking forward to sharing info and shooting stories here!

My son, Trey, and I will be at this show for our first time.  We will be with the Japanese collectors section.  Please look for the large white banner with red letters reading BANZAI.  I won't have any Savages for display or sale, but will have some of my books for sale.  Please stop by and say hello if you come to the show.  Best wishes, Garnett

Well this barrel fits ok it's just a little off center to the firing pin. You can find this on all kinds of center fires. With the barrel mating up with receiver along the bottom and the face I could see where the alignment of the firing pin hole. Which is what I found with my 219B rifle in 30-30. When I put the 22 hornet barrel on it and put a snap cap in and fired it.  The firing pin hit the edge of the primer pocket in the snap cap. Now this barrel fits very tight to the 219 (older) receiver, it's a little hard to get it to release. This barrel is snug with the older receiver and the release lever has to be pushed all the way over thru to its max movement to get it to release. This could just be these 2 receivers too??
Yes I'm going to look for a stock and forearm for it.

Jaegerjp, Thanks for joining our forum!  Thanks for sharing this info with us.  Your .30-30/16 gauge is considered a "Utility" gun and had their own model numbers.  Your model number is a 222.  These numbers were listed in catalogs, but never put on the guns.  They are sorta hard to find.  They came with two barrels and two forearms.  The "K" means it was made in 1959.  It is thought that the "29" may be an inspector's number, but not sure about that.  I hope you will enjoy this site and continue to use it.  Best wishes, Garnett

SB, could have been a problem with the previous owners loads, etc.  The barrel being "off center" is a new problem.  No one else has mentioned something like that.  Are you going to try to correct this problem?  It could be some minor adjustment required.  Good luck with it.  I personally enjoy buying altered guns and restoring them to their "former glory".  :)  i have 3 such guns now.

Sorry Garnett, I had the barrel, all they were selling was the receiver.
The barrel is a 22 hornet and is a Utica barrel. The person I got it from said that it shot intermittently
After it was repaired??? I have found that even if a barrel fits good and tight to a receiver that the firing pin may not align properly to the barrel chamber. Making the firing pin hit on the side of the primer. Which is not good and probably why there's a high incident of breaking firing pins.
This barrel is off center just a little. I fired 5 primed cases and all fired with no problems.
I couldn't see where anything was done as far as a repair.

I am from Texas and have two Savage guns now - a 220B in .410 bore, and a combo gun - 30-30 / 16 gauge that I just acquired from a Pennsylvania gun dealer.  The .410 is an awesome gun - I killed 17 rabbits with it ~ 3 weeks ago.  Its a beautiful gun as well, not used much, with wonderful case colors, and what appears to be a date code of 29k.  The combo gun has 30-30 barrel and 16 gauge 28" full choke barrel with identical numbers.  It also is in very good shape, although I have not shot it yet.

Really glad to find this site, and others who enjoy these guns as much as I do.  I also have Model 37 Winchesters, but I like the Savage guns more.

You have what I refer to as a 2nd Model Utica rifle, it has the slim trigger and an alloy trigger guard.  I have seen this "Arrow" proof mark on several guns, but I have not identified what it means.  I check GB daily and don't know how I missed seeing this one.  Congratulations.  It appears to be worth restoring.  What is the caliber?  Have you checked the assembly numbers to see if the barrel and receiver match?  Ebay has lots of used stocks and forearms for sale and Numrich Arms has new ones, but they are a bit pricey.  Most likely any complete forearm assembly will have to be fitted to this barreled action.  Good luck.  Thanks for sharing this with us!
