Buy, Sell, Wanted, and Trade... / 220B Stripped Receiver For Sale
« Last post by Garnett on April 22, 2017, 11:32:51 AM »
This is a Chicopee Falls receiver that I believe is/was color case hardened.  The price is $20 with free shipping to the original 48 states.  Looking at the pictures you can see that outside it shows lots of wear and pitting.  However, I believe it to be safe to rebuild as a shooter.  Look closely at the firing pin hole.  It seems a little large even for a shotgun.  Also look closely at the firing pin screw hole.  While there appear to be remnants of threads, a larger screw may be needed.  I offer this as a "do it yourself" project, or as a novel paper weight.  I must have a FFL or C&R license for this sale.  Your personal check is fine.

Buy, Sell, Wanted, and Trade... / 219/220 Internal Parts
« Last post by Garnett on April 21, 2017, 04:10:17 PM »
I get lots of requests for parts.  I personally do not sell any, because if I did, what ever part I sold, I would get a gun the next day that was missing that part. :)  I have purchased several of these parts from Numrich (The Gun Parts Co) over the years.  They are pleasant to deal with.    Also, I am seeing more and more internal parts for sale on EBay.  If you are careful to comparison shop, you can get some good buys on them.  However, I suspect that some sellers are breaking up perfectly good guns and "parting out" on EBay.  This is sad.

Fitting a Savage 219 rifle barrel to a Stevens Model 94 shotgun action of the same period?  I've seen suggestions that this can be done, but never any proof Iike a picture of such a "hybrid").

One problem with this might be that the receiver materials of 94s and 219s may be of different steels, and that the shotgun has a softer, less durable action than the rifle.  Does anyone know if this is true?  ( It is true of more recent H&R/NEF single shots, but that doesn't necessarily carry over to Savage products from the 1940s and '50s).

Another is that the shotguns might have larger diameter firing pins than will work well with a rifle cartridge.  That can be a problem when interchanging 219 and 220 barrels; don't know if it would with the Savage/Stevens "hybrid."

If anybody has both a 219 and a 94, I'd sure appreciate it if you would try putting the rifle barrel onto the shotgun, just to see if it looks like it might fit, and let us know what you think.

My son Trey, and Grand daughter Isabella, and I, attended the TMCA show in Franklin, TN this past Saturday and Sunday.  I was hoping to find another Martial marked Savage 220 as I did in Louisville, in February, but no luck.  If you like militaria collectables, and are in driving distance, the Franklin show is a really good one.  It is held yearly on Friday and Saturday after Thanksgiving and before Easter.

Larry, welcome to this forum.  Feel free to place a "wanted" ad in the "buy, sell, trade" section.  Also, check Ebay daily.  They have barrels for sale almost daily.  I have had good luck adding a barrel to an existing gun.  Some will just drop right in.  On the ones that have required fitting, my gunsmith has had no problem fitting them.  You may want to also get a separate forearm for the Hornet barrel.  If the existing forearm is fitted to the Hornet barrel, then it may not fit properly to the existing barrel it was on.  Just something to consider.  Thanks for sharing your interests with us.  Best wishes, Garnett

Hi all,
My name is Larry and I live in Ludington,MI. I am fairly new to the savage 219 & 220's a couple of years but I have always liked singles and doubles.
I have a 219 30-30 with a 410 barrel, a 220 16ga. with a 30-30 barrel with scope groves, a 219 30-30 with a 20ga. barrel and a 220 20ga. I would like to find a 22 hornet barrel to fit my 410 combo.
Looking forward to talking with you all.

I got a tip from a friend that there was a nice 219 in .25-20 for sale by a small shop in Redmond OR.  Contacted the owner and was told he won't ship guns to CA.  He was polite but firm about it, a gentleman who didn't give me the "I don't do business with Communist countries"  line that I have heard more than once.  We parted company politely; he IS free to do business with the customer HE chooses.

If anyone wants to see what he has and what he wants for it ( AND doesn't live in The Golden State),  the name of the shop is Gunners Central Oregon, Redmond OR (NOT Washington) and the owner's name is Dan.
