Guys, I just wanted to give a shoutout to Savage's customer service on here. I bought a Savage Edge .223 from another Calgunner and I didn't realize it was missing the cover for the windage screw on the scope. I know it probably costs 10 cents... but I called in and they're sending me a set of covers for free. So... +1 for them. :)

They have good service. When I bought my Savage, it was missing the tool to adjust the accutrigger. Called Savage, gave my serial number, no questions asked, shipped the tool out, 4 days later it was in my mail box.

That's good to hear. I just picked up a 30-06 off a buddy that he won at a raffle and didn't want. It's my first savage so I'm glad to hear they take care of their customers.

Lower part of the receiver where the lever fits in and rotates. Inside the "oval" is a stamped letter which will correspond with year of manufacture:

A= 1949
B= 1950
C= 1951
D= 1952
E= 1953
F= 1954
G= 1955
H= 1956
I= 1957
J= 1958
K= 1959
L= 1960
M= 1961
N= 1962
O= SKIPPED
P=1963
Q= SKIPPED
R= 1964
S= 1965
T= 1966
U= 1967
V= 1968
W= 1969
X= 1970

Is it underneath the rotating internal clip? I seriously cannot find it anywhere in the receiver. Do i have to open the gun up to find it?

Where the lever meets the whole trigger assembly on the bottom there is a "3" stamped.

The extended "bump" (the boss) that the lever rotates and is attached to, should have the stamp on the front part. It may be very lightly stamped, so you really have to look at it.

Prior to 1949, and after 1970, the code stamp was for inspection use only. You may either have a new rifle, or a classy vintage one.

Go here to get the date of manufacture (http://www.savage99.com/savage99_dates.htm). Type in your serial, and a box will pop-up with the year.

According to that website it was manufactured in 1947. Where you are telling me to look, there is only a number 3. No oval or anything and it is stamped deep enough to see clearly. Did my picture show up?

Nope, no pic.

Savage did not use the boss stamp in 1947, so all you get is inspection number 3. Cool gun, always been looking for a nice one to add to the collection...well, not looking super hard :)

On the topic of Savage... I was thinking of picking up a axis in .308 as an beginner rifle into long rage shooting. What do you guys think?

I bought by 223 off another Calgunner here and it's been outstanding for what I paid... that seems to be the consensus on Savages... especially with the accutrigger... great rifle, reasonable price.
