Your rifle turned out very nice!  The early wood was so much nicer than on later guns.  The metal looks great!   Thanks for sharing the pictures.  Did you do the work or have it done?

Disassembly and reassembly was "interesting."

I have a 219 rifle I purchased on the internet that has been drilled and tapped for a long ramp front sight and it has a folding sight such as you picture.  Thanks for sharing your gun with us and welcome to this forum!

Yes, the barrel is counter bored from the muzzle for a depth of 16 inches.  More comments later after  I look at the pictures you mention.

Looking at the original poster's pix and text, I see that the bore enlarges to about .360 at the muzzle, so it doesn't look like a .22.  Are yours like that Garnett? (I can't get to your book right now).

One of the regular posters on the "Savage Collectors" forum of www.24hourcampfire.com has info and good pix on a Utica-made 220 in ".22 shot" today.  His handle is GeneB.  The gun (not for sale) is just about new (good pix--wish I could do those!) except for (last pic) somebody mutilated the buttstock....

Is the muzzle on his gun choked or bored out?  The view of the muzzle doesn't look like .22 caliber to me!

A Lyman or Marble's Folding Leaf rear sight works pretty well.

One way to deal with an "aged" finish is the Black Nitride process, which hardens the steel surface and makes it highly corrosion resistant, but does not alter dimensions.  See BlackNitride.com for specs.  Though the trigger pull remains heavier than I prefer, this Black Nitrided 219 .30-30 does particularly well with wheelweight 311041 over 15 grains of SR4759 and Sierra 125 SPT over 36 grains of IMR4895.

You can find this part on Ebay most of the time.  Have you considered replacing it?

You could be correct.
