Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / Re: Receivers
« Last post by Garnett on December 05, 2020, 09:01:10 AM »
Yes, all receivers are the same for both 219 and 220 actions.  I have purchased all gauges and all calibers (except .32-20) in my research for my book, and all are the same over all outside dimension size.    There was some misinformation on one forum saying the 12 & 16 gauge actions were larger than the 20, 28, and .410.  This is totally incorrect.

Are 220 receivers standard across gauge and caliber?

Savage 219 Single Shot Rifles / "+" Symbol

If your gun has this "+" symbol on it, would you please contact me?  Please advise if it is on a 219 or 220, or possibly a "Utility" set along with were the gun was made and the exact model number with Suffix.  Many thanks. Garnett

The  only barrels I have seen (3) that were not marked as to caliber or gauge, are the 20 gauge slug 20" barrels that were at one time offered by Numrich.  Someone told me that they are again listed at Numrich.  I have not looked myself.  All other barrels I have seen or examined have the gauge marking on them.  Another reason for so many nice guns being offered could be that the owners need some extra cash.

Garnett,

Agree on all points.  I have just been surprised to see several Hornets in one week.  It took me YEARS to find the one I wanted only last year.

I feel like in the last month all kind of good inventory has hit the market.

Garnett,

Thank yoy for your thoughts.  Mike as well.  I think your assertion about it being lefit but rare ia likely true.  The only pic I see is just N auction showing a Utica mark, and claiminfnits a 28.  But the barrel isnt marked for gauge, just 220.  So who knows.

Otherwise, comments on another forum asserring the same, but offering no pic.

I will keep my eyes peeled for a unicorn!

I know I am getting old!  When Chris asked his question and I began to answer, it dawned on me that I put in my original book that the 28 gauge was first offered in 1954 and then I realized later that I had bid on a Utica Trap gun in 28 gauge.  DUH!!!!   I never put the 2+2 together!  I will correct/add this info to the next printing of my book.  We are never to old to learn!

"Savage--Never Say Never!"  Motto of Savage collectors.  Many uncatalogued guns out there, from all eras.

Chris, I look at GB every day.  I find some of them appear to be good buys, some not for various reasons.  I have purchased 45 of these 219/220's for research for my books so there are very few that I don't have one just like or better.  I have purchased the bulk of them off GB.  I do want to caution people to do their research before making a costly purchase.  Especially beware and carefully check high priced guns with more than one barrel.  Be sure the assembly numbers and forearms match.  Thanks for sharing this item with us.
