First gun was a 220 .410 at age nine. Very happy to have found this site. I'll be back soon.

Thank you for sharing this information with us.  When I got my second M219 in .30-30 I wanted a scope on it.  It is a First Model Utica, like yours.  I did not like the two piece Weaver alloy mounts and cheap rings so my gunsmith modified a one piece Redfield mount with the steel rings.  I think the reinforcing where the forward part of the stock meets the frame is an excellent idea to prevent cracks.  That is the other problem in addition to a very hard trigger pull with these guns.  I built a .22 Hornet for my daughter for her last birthday.  The trigger pull was the worst I had encountered.  On the indoor range at 25 yards, the pull was so hard it was difficult to hit the man size target.  My gunsmith corrected that.  The trigger now has a very crisp 2.5# pull.  I hope you will have many years of fun with your Great Grand Dad's gun!

All back together and finished. As for how it shoots, see below  8)
All together


And after sighting in, a 5 round group at 100yards



.647” at the widest, minus .308 for the bullet equals it shooting .339 moa. Savage always did build great rifles, aside from the absolutely horible trigger pull lol

Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / Re: Custom engraving
« Last post by Garnett on April 17, 2020, 02:01:31 PM »
This is an absolutely beautiful gun!  Thank you for sharing the pictures with us!  I have some very good friends who collect Colt single actions and Winchester lever actions and they look down their long noises at my "cheap" Savages.  These 219/220's are of a classic design, far superior in looks to most of the single shots on the market today, especially within their price range.  Take the basic design, put custom wood and engraving on it, and you have an item to be envied.

Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / Custom engraving

Here are some images of my gun and two more that were done on Savage 220 actions. I wish I could find the one with the Partridge and Woodcock. Zeuss I could live without.

Savage 220 Single Shot Hammerless Shotguns / custom 20 gauge
« Last post by Cleetus on April 17, 2020, 12:07:49 PM »
Garnett has already seen these but thought I would post these pictures of my engraved Utica action gun with the custom stock. I bought it with a 22 hornet barrel that proved to have too much head space. Therefore i decided to fit a nice barrel off of on of my 20 gauge guns. I had to inlet the forearm to nicely accept the 20 gauge barrel. I had also found a contact number for the Engraver of the gun and called him. He had done the engraving in the 1990's along with to other 220 receivers as a project to get his work out there for people to see. I asked him what this work should be worth today. He told me he would now charge what works out to 25x what I paid for the gun. he spent hundreds of hours on this one. The other gun pictured is one with original factory finish.
