I have been loioking at finding what this Savage model 99 300 caliber is worth. The searial number is 373XXX. I would say it is in about 90% condition. It was first owned by my great grandfather who purchesed it new in 1936. Oh course being one that has been in the family It will never be sold. Later in life I will pass it down along with the rest of my collection. A year ago I took it to a gun show to figure out price range and the guys there didnt know jack about it. They kept asking it is model a,b,?? it has no letter on the stamping just model 99. Thanks again.

Is the caliber .300 Savage (.300 SAV) or something else? I'm not clear on your description. Also, you'd need to know whether it's "A" or "B", that makes a difference.

Looking at this im guessing it would be a model A then cause it was made in 1936. It is a 300 savage. The only faults to the weapon is small dents on the wood. All the bluing is still there (little worn off the which is in the picture. my great grandfather did have a brush mount scope put on it. Let me take a picture of it to show you what it looks like now.

I've never owned one, but I fired one. Very smooth lever action -- nice.

I collect 1899 and 99 Savages.

The .300 Savage cartridge was the basis for the .308 Win/7.62x51mm NATO cartridge. Ballistically, they are similar with the .308 holding a slight edge.

As a shooter, it is a fine rifle and will do anything a .308 or a .30-06 will do. Unfortunately, the mounting of a scope has ruined any collector value the rifle may have had. I believe it will be difficult to sell the rifle for more than $500.00.

Keep it. It is part of your heritage.
