Any Savage 219 fans out there?


Registered Users do not see the above ad.


I happen to own a very nice Savage 219 in 30/30 and have noticed several here in the last couple years that seem to also be fans of this older rifle. I have nothing to do with this rifle, other then I saw this ad today on GunsAmerica and thought someone out there might be interested.

SAVAGE MODEL 219 30-30 Savage Rifles > Other for sale, gun classifieds or gun auction from MBA00. Buy or bid on this SAVAGE MODEL 219 30-30 in the category Savage Rifles > Other on GunsAmerica.

It's long gone - making me glad, of course, that I already have one in Hornet.

For a low end gun of it's day, it is a very nice rifle. I've seen the hornets rechambered to 225 and the 30-30s opened up to 30-40 Krags. but even in the original cartridges, they are very nice carrying hunting rifles.

I bought a 22 Hornet when in college. Was a good gun except for the 7# trigger(shotgun).

Stretch, The first time I ever saw one (picture) it looked like a fine German stalking rifle. I wanted one! It took me a long time to find an owner of a nice one who would be willing to trade for one. It's not evident in the picture there, but my rifle still carries 95%+ color case on the action. Darn, It is purty! I will try and show a new picture showing the very nice color case on the receiver.

After posting, I went straight to Gunbroker to see what could be found. Beautiful little rifles!

Yep, those case colors are sho-nuff "full" - but that wood has KILLER grain color & contrast ! . . (as in: I'd KILL for a stock like that. ) .

Thanks. I tried to take a couple more pics showing the colors and grain. I bought that scope to be a decent period sight that might have been used back in the day. I think it looks pretty good for a rifle that might have cost about $45 when new...lol. Almost forgot; that's a period Lyman All-American 3X scope in Millet rings made to fit the grooved receiver top.

If you like the wood now, you might be very pleasantly surprised at the way the grain's color & contrast will "pop", if you zip down to a good hardware store, get some HOWARD'S FEED 'n WAX, then apply a coat/two via the bottle directions.

I have one in 30-30, bought at a gun show, tried to talk the seller down but he stood firm at $125.
The stock was refinished with a belt sander, so I ordered a new set of stocks from Boyd's Gunstocks.
Mine is one of the first one made there is no serial number or letter by the model number just 219.
Have a Weaver K6 mounted and the only thing going down the barrel is cast bullets and mild charges.

Thanks for the tip, but my wood stocks only see Natchez Solution, a combination of Bee's Wax and Lemon Oil and some other "stuff". Probably very similar products though.


"The Natchez Solution is a truly natural product which contains no silicones, alcohol, lacquers, turpentine, or detergents. It is delecately aged to perfection. It resists finger smudges and water staining as no other product of which we are aware on the market today! The Natchez Solution is a true "wood feeder" meaning that it is fed into the wood during application to the furniture. Use this product on all of your treasured wood furniture."

One thing to remember about the Savage 21 and the 220 guns, they were on the same frame.

The 219 could be had with a optional shotgun barrel for a extra charge.

The 220 came with a larger firing pin for the shotshells.

Many times the shotshell barrels would interchange on to the 219 frame.

The only thing that CAN'T be done, is to use an early bbl (w/o the spring-loaded cocking lug sticking out of the RH side of the underlug) on a later gun (219B, 220L, etc) that needs the cocking lug for (guess what ?) cocking, as the gun is opened.

Early guns, Model 219 (no letter) and early Model 220's were opening-lever cockers.
All later guns were barrel-opening cockers.

They seem to change hands today for around $350, bareback (+/-) on an open market, like an online sale or auction, for one that's not a tomato stake.

I've both bought one for less after a lot of private searching, and sold one for more - but those are the extremes/exceptions, & not the rule, IMHO.
