General Discussion / Re: Book with Savage 340 info?
« Last post by Garnett on April 16, 2019, 07:55:29 PM »
I just checked Ebay.  They have 3 magazines, Shooting Times, and Guns & Ammo.  All 3 have articles about the M340.  Amazon has a "Gun World" magazine with an article on the 340.  Also, "Google" the 340.  There are several articles there.  Good luck!

General Discussion / Re: Book with Savage 340 info?

Trooper Dan,  I have one book, Savage & Stevens Arms, 1864-2003.  It only mentions the M340 by reproducing a full page Savage advertisement from March of 1957.  I have another book, Savage & Stevens Arms & History, by Bill West.  It only shows an undated full page reproduced ad. It mentions a 340 "Bolt Carbine", but does not show a picture.  The ad I did find in this book, shows a 340 Standard Model and a 340-s (little "S" used) listed as a "De Luxe" model.  Have you searched eBay and Amazon?  You may have the same problem I had when I could find no information on the M219/220 single shots.  I paid $125 for one of those books and all it had was a one page reproduced ad from the early 1940's about these two guns.  In frustration....I wrote my own book.  Give it some thought and good luck to you.  Let us know how your search goes.

I've long had an interest in the ugly duckling model 340's and their variations.  Surely there are some books out there with info on these!  Does anyone know of books about the 340 or that have info on it?  I'd like to know dates made, number produced, calibers, other models such as Western Field Montgomery Wards, etc.

Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / Re: New 220A receiver
« Last post by Garnett on April 12, 2019, 04:05:48 PM »
It looks good!  "G" is 1955.  One has a steel safety button and the other is an alloy.  My gunsmith/machinist as advised me that there are differences internally with the same model Suffix's and a single part may not interchange.  Thanks for the pictures.  Please keep sharing your project with us.

Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / New 220A receiver
« Last post by CDSUSMC on April 12, 2019, 03:25:50 PM »
Just came in today, a 220A receiver with a marking of 4G.  The other receiver I own is an 4E  and I was informed the it was made in 1953. I would think that they are very close in manufacturer time wise. But looking at the two there is some different parts used, such as the trigger and the safety button. The firing pin also looks to have different details to it. I have included photos. Hope to mate it up to a good looking 12 gauge barrel I have coming my way thanks to a new friend I made here.

Chris, I'm very familiar with your range access problem from my years "upstate."  And finding those Hornet cases in the slush can be a drag, too!  Good luck with the first testfire!

Cleetus, all seems well and tight. I will take all precautions safety wise and also plan on using very lite loads to start. Thank you for the concern. The weather has delayed my first shot because the road into the range has been either ice or mud or both. I will report in when I do take that first shot.
