SAVAGE 4C Drawings / Restoration

Registered Users do not see the above ad.

Recently someone gave me an old Savage Model 4C. It is bolt action 22 cal (short, reg longs). The firing pin and shell extractor are missing or broken, yet it looks like they are integrated/attached to each other. I went to a number of online gun parts/gun drawing companies but they do NOT have the drawings for this gun or specifically these assemblies. I did find one company that had parts for this gun and from the list I ordered what I thought I will need but without a drawing (they did not have one either) it was a matter of guessing from the part names. The parts should get here next week so it would be great if I could get a detailed drawing of the extractor/firing pin assemblies and some guidance in how to put these together. I would also consider sending the bolt and parts out to someone who could put the pin and extractor assembly together for me.

The gun is in need of restoring, some rust, and it obviously had been sitting in a corner when someone roller painted above it because it was speckled with white paint. I have begun restoring this nice little gun back to life. It's starting to look nice! I also ordered a magazine clip and rear site because they were missing too. It will be a labor of love and I enjoy restoring older guns anyway and refinishing gun stocks. All of this I will need to do to this rifle. From my research it appears it is a pre WWII. It has a checkered stock! It was made in Utica NY. If I could get it back to shooting condition that would be the right thing to do for this nice little gun... it's a sin to have it just sit and be of no use because of no firing pin and shell extractor. I am restoring this gun for my girlfriend. She enjoys shooting and this little wood stocked 22 bolt action that can shoot 22 shorts to longs is perfect for her. Restoring a gun for someone you love is always a rewarding endeavor. Thanks for any help and or direction.
