The screws I spoke of are the ones holding on the trigger guard. I did not make that clear. My other guns have the forward screw in the receiver and the aft one exposed. Both of these are easy to get to.

As I said earlier you do have an early M220.  If I understand you correctly, what you are calling "screws" are actually pins.  The large pin in the front, is the one the barrel lug pivots on.  The small one holds in the internal parts....locking lug, sear, etc.  Your action is a "striker" fired action.  Actions that have 3 pins, are "hammer" fired actions.  The number "202" is an assembly number.  The only guns I have found in my research that have a 3 digit number, instead of something like "Y' over "w2z", have been "Utility" guns that came from the factory with 2 barrels.  On these guns (I have one) the 3 digit number is on the inside of the receiver, in front of the barrel lug, inside the forearm on the wood (not the metal) and on the butt under the butt plate.  Also, the red color of your receiver indicates it was reblued.  Do you have the rest of the gun, of just the receiver?   The 21 in a circle is, according to Mr. Callahan, a former historian for Savage, an unidentified inspectors mark. Please keep us posted on your progress.

Welcome to the forum and please continue to share your likes with us.  Speaking of the M220 Trap guns....Savage did make one.  I have a 12, 16, and 20, and was out bid for a .410.  I have not seen a 28 gauge Trap model.  I have purchased a vented rib from Numrich that I plan on having my gunsmith install on a mismatched M220, 20 gauge that I have.

I have been away from home for several days and just returned.  Yes, you do have an early M220 action.  I will go into more detail tomorrow.  Thanks for your inquiry!

I need some help in dating and the model of this action it has a couple of unfamiliar things but since I have been reading old posts I think it is a very early 220 It is smooth on both sides with a steal trigger guard and the slim trigger. What confuses me is the placement of the screws on the outside of the receiver. I like that that is one of the reasons I picked it up. On the right side it has a small circle around a 21. The last thing is a number stamped on the inside near the breech 202 and a s very near the breech  here are some pictures if I can add them.

I am Jted the new guy. I want to thank Garrnett for inviting me to the forum. I have been involved in the shooting sports for most of my life. Bouncing from clay target shooting to hunting back to competitive shooting. Now at my age I collect a few guns some are Savage 220's. It was my dads want to have a trap gun made out of a old 220 he had. That got me going. They did not cost too much so With 2 kids I could still pick up some parts. I will be posting from time to time but mainly gathering information. On with the journey.  Jted
I am glad you found what you needed.
Found one on, a CA gun-related website.  It's "local"--only a 20 mile drive-- so I could try my forend iron out on it and it fits perfectly both to the iron and to the gun--actually a .410 forend, too, not a rifle forend.  Sometimes you just get lucky.  Now for a very gentle refinish to get a better match with the stock (the forend wood appears to me to be very light walnut, not birch.  The stock is either well-stained birch or light brown walnut, can't tell).

Thanks for the tip on ebay, but that one has a different setup for the forend iron.
