    Savage 24

    This is a 1968 24E-S in 22LR/20ga that I picked up a couple of years ago as a restoration project, but I haven't had time to get to it yet. All it really needs is a good cleaning, an elevator for the rear sight and to be refinished. I intend on using it as a grouse and rabbit gun in the future.







    I could use this as a project thread to show the progression, but I honestly don't think I'll be working on it any time soon; too many other commitments. So, who else has a 24 they'd like to share with us?

    You lucky dawg.

    I wanted one of those so I looked at the model 42. The vendor said "it's okay" unimpressively. So I declined and bought the Chiappa double badger with .22lr and .410. It's pretty sweet.

    Yeah I handled a model 42, very very light, my overall impression was kinda cool and then I opened the action and saw the extractors were plastic. I don't mind plastic but when theres plastic in the internals it just turns me off.

    Very cool gun awndray!

    I probably have a rear sight elevator if you need one. .22/20ga should be a great combo.

    I'll see if superbrad can help [originating post] first since he's local, but I'll keep that in mind. Thanks!
