Hi! My Name is... / Greetings From Southern California
« Last post by jrbauerjr on May 19, 2020, 05:50:39 PM »
Well, I'm almost sorry to have found this place because I think it's going to cost me a little money before I'm done. I'm Jim Bauer from North San Diego, last year I realized that my gun safe was collecting dust from my next to last move from Washington DC to Philadelphia in 1979, let alone from Philly to San Ramon in 1999 and San Diego.. Quite a long time with no shooting other than my Navy Reserve 2 weeks a year. I realized that now that I'm in my mid 70's I'd better start on my bucket list, so I signed the waiting list for my local gun club (went from 218 to 72 in only one year) and started cleaning my safe and adding a few guns.. 

Savage was already well represented, a Model 5 22 (prewar vintage), a Model 6 22, a 219 in 22 hornet and I then had to add an Axis in 30-06 and a 110E in 223 Remington.  I've only had the 219 in the back of the closet since 1968 and still haven't shot it yet, it seems to have been overlooked all these years.  So I've decided that the 219 and an old Remington Rolling Block are this years project guns. I signed up for the summer gunsmithing program at Lassen College, but it was canceled due to Covid19.  I guess I'm going to have to make due with what I've got around the house for working up the guns. I had looked forward to a full gunsmithing program and the class syllabus tells you to bring all your busted guns...

Frank de Hass's Single Shot Gun Idea book devotes a chapter to the 219 and I'll determine if I can improve the trigger pull and tear the action down. I was going to take it to Lassen and reblue it, but I found this site when I googled black nitrite finishes...   Looks like I might forget about the bluing class after seeing that beautiful 30-30.  The 219 has good wood, no cracks, so that's a easy refinishing project sitting in front of the TV with a bottle of Tru-Oil...

Anyway, looking forward to participating a bit....

I have recently found one of these pistols for sale on the internet.  It is listed as having a "RARE" six inch barrel.  As best I can determine, it was only made with an 8 inch barrel.  Does anyone have any information about a six inch barrel model?

I need a rear sight for a Savage 101 single shot pistol.  This is a fixed blade with a notch that fits in a dovetail slot.  Any help will be appreciated.  None on eBay or at Numrich right now.

Within the past few days I found another source that says that from 1938 to 1945, 12,500 Model 219's were made.  It also says from 1937 (note one year earlier) to 1945, that 50,000 M220 shotguns were made.
