I have a break action 30-30 Win. if it helps ..I just bought a Savage Model 219 in 30-30 cal. I would like to learn more about this rifle but have been unable to find much. Has anyone had any experience with one or know anything about them?
The 219 is the rifle version of the 220 shotguns from Savage/Stevens. I've been collecting 220's since my dad gave me my first one in about 1960. It was a 16 gauge and I now have five 12 gauge, three 16 gauge, three 20 gauge, one 28 gauge and two .410's. A couple weeks ago I finally found a model 219 in .22 Hornet that I've just started to shoot (without scope so far) and love it. Today I completed a deal with aomebody in Northern Michigan for a combination 12 gauge/30-30 gun. My plan has been to display one each of the 7 versions I have in my gun room/man cave. I know there are some 25-20 and 32-20 versions out there but I've never tripped over any. If anybody had one in these calibers, I'd be interested. I'm also always looking for the shotgun version 220's too.I have a break action 30-30 Win. if it helps ..bottom barrel is a 20 gauge
