I purchased this in 1970 from distributor when I was an FFL dealer, so it has not been previously sold to a non-licensee. Has not been fired, or action racked, and is in same condition as when left factory; in factory box (excellent condition)with manual; box sleeve has some tattering on ends, but is in good condition, otherwise. 24" tapered, octagon barrel; .308 Winchester cartridge. Serial number: 3321. Cocking indicator button (protrudes upward when rifle loaded) at front of tang. Steel frame. Very nicely polished/blued receiver and barrel. Sides of the receiver have scroll engraving bordering a "SAVAGE ARMS" inscription on the left and a "MODEL 1895" inscription on the right. The lever has gold-tone (maybe brass) plating with serrated, external sliding lever safety/lock. The crescent buttplate appears to be brass, as does the windage-driftable front sight blade (needs light polishing). The walnut schnabel-tipped forearm and straight grip buttstock have very nicely-figured wood grain -- please see photos. Brass rotary magazine with stamped numbers that show through a small oval viewing window cut-out on the left side of receiver, indicating how many rounds remain. Flip-down, elevation-adjustable (by sliding notched ramp blade) buckhorn rear sight with white vertical line; rear sight is mounted in dovetail slot, so can be drifted for windage adjustment. Receiver drilled and tapped for scope base. Embedded in the right side of the buttstock is a brass (maybe bronze)finish Savage 75th Anniversary emblem disc/medallion that depicts Savage's classic Chief's head logo. 9,999 of these rifles were manufactured in 1970 only; this classic-styled rifle commemorates Savage Arms' 75th year of operation. NOTE: Reason for no return policy is that gun is completely as described and as shown in photos.

Credit cards accepted, but I prefer payment by U.S. postal money order only because they post quickly to my bank account, which enables me to ship gun quickly.
