Какую информацию вы хотите?

What information do you want?
I also ordered this platform. Do you need more information, do not know if it helps me?  This is a Russian translation from the first message. 

My reply is:  I do not need any information from you, unless you have a question about any of these guns, or any of the subjects on this forum.  I will try to help, but we do have a language problem.  Best wishes, Garnett
Мне больше не нужна информация, если у вас нет вопроса о каких-либо предметах на этом форуме или о любом из этих двух моделей Savage с одним выстрелом. У нас есть языковая проблема. С наилучшими пожеланиями, Гарнетт
Я также заказал эту платформу. Вам нужна дополнительная информация, не знаю, помогает ли она мне?

Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / Re: What do they mean?

Interesting find!  I've never seen a 220 with a 3" chamber.  Were they common after the 3" 20 guage "Magnum" chambering became popular?  (After about 1965 you almost couldn't buy ANY 20 that wasn't a "Magnum"!).

I'm not a fan of "Magnumbs" in any guage but .410, which needs all the help it can get.  And I'd suggest that you don't start kids on a single shot 3" using Magnum shells.  Light 20 Mags DO back up pretty sharply and you might induce a flinch or worse.  I'd start with 7/8 oz. skeet loads and work 'em up to the hotter stuff, especially in a light gun like a 220.

However you use it, that's a real nice little Savage!

I picked up the gun a few minutes ago from my gunsmith.  It was a simple problem to solve, well, at least to him it was. :)  While I had properly fitted, I thought, by removing excess metal in 4 places to get the new ejector hook to fit, there was one place I did not even think of.  See new picture.  The new (and the old butchered)  ejector hook stuck out just a fraction of an inch into the front of the barrel lug where it engages the receiver pivot bolt.  This fraction of an inch was enough to keep the action from locking up tight and keep the top lever returning to the normal position, just to the right of center.  All is well!

The pictures disappeared over time, due to unknown, but common reasons according to my son.  I am re-posting them.  I hope you enjoy looking!

The number "8" stamped into the forearm denotes either the size barrel it fits, or the design shape of the forearm.  I have been researching these particular forearm numbers for over 14 years and do not have enough data to make an educated guess as to which they denote.  Thanks for the additional pictures.

Here are the markings under the butt plate and forearm, they don't appear to match but that's okay.  I hope to create fond memories with my son in laws and grandkids with this gun.

Welcome and thanks for sharing your pictures with us!  These are very nice guns, but I wonder if someone did start remaking them, if the quality would be the same?  Of course there are exceptions....Mirouku (I think that is the correct spelling) is doing a great job with the old Winchesters, and a couple of companies are doing excellent repo's of the old Colts.  The biggest and only change I would like to see if they are ever reproduced, would be double set triggers on the M219 rifles.  My gunsmith/machinist says, in his opinion, the existing internal action cannot be fitted w/DST.  Someone else in this forum was experimenting with DST.
