IMPROVING THE MODEL 1914 SAVAGE .22


IMPROVING THE MODEL 1914 SAVAGE .22

By W. GUNRICH

In the fall of 1915 I bought my self a 1914 model Savage rifle, .22 caliber, tubular magazine, which I fitted with Marbleís peep rear and Vickerís Maxim front sights. I now thought that I had an ideal rifle, and this it really proves to be.

But my troubles began when I went out hunting. Going along an old logging road one bright morning I was surprised to see a partridge strutting up the road right ahead of me. Of course, here was a chance to try the new gun, so putting the Vickerís Maxim around the birdís head I pulled the trigger.

The result was a distinct click now I remembered having put a shell into the barrel, so this somewhat surprised mc. But on looking it over I found the action partly open and no shell in the barrel. Well, I pumped in another shell and kept on, carrying the gun in one hand, clutched around the middle, when presently I noticed the slide handle move back. I now saw what caused the action to open.

In carrying the gun my gloved band had pressed the little lever which releases the action when the gun is to be opened before firing. This lever runs from instead of to the receiver, projecting at the front end for a distance of about a half inch or more. I donít exactly remember the length. Now it occurred to me that if this projection were not so long it would not be so likely to be accidentally pressed. So accordingly I cut it off, leaving it about three-sixteenths of an inch in length. I find this plenty long to release the action when I wish it to be released, yet too short to be pressed by accident.

Now you boys who do not own one of these rifles do not think that the rifle is no good, since a better rifle is not made of this class. This one little defect (which really is not a defect, since in target shooting the longer projection is the better or at least might be a little handier) can easily be remedied.
