I am from Texas and have two Savage guns now - a 220B in .410 bore, and a combo gun - 30-30 / 16 gauge that I just acquired from a Pennsylvania gun dealer. The .410 is an awesome gun - I killed 17 rabbits with it ~ 3 weeks ago. Its a beautiful gun as well, not used much, with wonderful case colors, and what appears to be a date code of 29k. The combo gun has 30-30 barrel and 16 gauge 28" full choke barrel with identical numbers. It also is in very good shape, although I have not shot it yet.
Really glad to find this site, and others who enjoy these guns as much as I do. I also have Model 37 Winchesters, but I like the Savage guns more.
