Mike Armstrong:
Garnett, three (more-or-less) completed data sheets will go in the snail mail to you on Monday (I'm off tomorrow to do my every-two-years refresher/recertification in First Aid/CPR and Backcountry Rescue, which takes all day and about all the energy I've got....).

One thing that came up in filling out the sheets is that I noticed that the 20 guage 220 barrel that I got from a member of 1) has no model number on it, nor any manufacturer name/site (although it shows every sign of being a Utica product), and 2)it fits the Utica "-219-" marked .30-30 I just got PERFECTLY! 

Is this just a coincidence, or is this barrel likely a "lost" shotgun barrel from a Model 223 or other rifle/shotgun combination set?  Are the shotgun barrels of the "combinations" marked with a model number and manufacturer name/location, or are they just identified by guage as this one is? 

This shotgun barrel came from Indiana and the 219 came from Nevada, so I think it very unlikely that they were originally together as a combo set.  But as a veteran Savage collector I know of says, "Savage--Never Say Never!"

Mike, I will have to look in to this.  I have 3 utility guns.  I will check the barrel markings carefully and report my findings.  Many thanks for the data sheets.  I will look forward to them! 

I am a little late with my answer (11-6-16), sorry about that.  I have checked all 3 shotgun barrels on my "Utility Gun" sets and all 3 are marked the same:  Savage Arms Corp Model 220 on the left side and Proof Tested xx Gauge on the right side of the barrel.
