I am glad you find the information on this forum useful.  Please feel free in asking questions and sharing your thoughts on these two M219/220 guns.
When I try to answer questions asked by forum members, I use the knowledge I have gained over the last several years in reading books, reading other forums, talking with other collectors, and in examining 43 different guns in the M219/220 series, that are in my personal collection.  After my first book was printed, I was fortunate to meet some new collectors and discuss their ideas and learned lots of new things from them.  Until I printed my book, there was not much printed information on these two models, and there was a lot of erroneous information on the internet.  A good example of erroneous information on the internet is that: "there are two different size actions in the M219/220 series.  One for 12 and 16 gauge, and a smaller one for 20, 28, and .410 gauge".  This is totally false.  There is only one size action for all models and calibers.   I learn new information all the time from posts by others on this forum, and from talking to other collectors who have bought my books, and shared information and information sheets with me.  I hope this answers your question.  Best wishes, Garnett

Buy, Sell, Wanted, and Trade... / Fancy Wood 219/220 Stock & Forearm needed
« Last post by Garnett on June 21, 2018, 03:16:15 PM »
I just purchased a very elaborately (non factory) engraved M220 in 16 gauge.  It has very plain wood.  I have contracted two companies that ads say they have them.  One replied "NO" and the other has not replied at all.  I suppose that means they don't have them, but at least they should have the courtesy to reply to my inquiry.  I guess I am just old fashioned, but my daddy always taught me to reply to all mail.  Anyway, if you have a fancy wood stock and forearm for sale, please contact me with prepaid shipping and insurance price, along with pictures.   I will post pictures when the new gun arrives.  Best wishes, Garnett
Buy, Sell, Wanted, and Trade... / Hunter Holster Model 1100 Number 53

This holster was made specifically for the Savage 101 single shot pistol.  Early ones were in a box, and later  ones in a plastic bag type enclosure.  If you have one for sale, please quote me a prepaid price.  Thanks!  Garnett

Trooper Dan, Many thanks for your kind words about my book!  Speaking for myself.....disassembly and (especially) re-assembly is not for the weak at heart! :)  I do also provide pictures with the instructions.  Thanks again for your comment!  Best wishes,  Garnett
Just spent a highly pleasurable hour or so looking over the new book by Mr. Stancil on our loved Savage 219's and 220's.  I highly recommend that if you have an interest in these single shots, you should have this book.  It goes much deeper into the internal design changes over the years with many detailed photos.  For the brave and adventurous of us, there is a detailed disassemble procedure listed as well.

Now that seems unfair for those guys to have two .32-30's!  They should share their wealth!  :)

Trooper Dan, Good luck on your quest!  I have been looking for a M219 in .32-20 for years.  I have talked to two different people who each have two of them, but neither will sell one to me! :'(
