Savage Pawnshop Find Login/Join

Just bought this Savage in 223 today at a pawn shop. 18” long barrel and 7/8” in diameter at muzzle. It’s my first bolt action handgun. $375 out the door. Don’t know much about these, is this a Striker?

Update: can’t figure out how to post pic from my iPhone.

Sounds like a Striker and a heck of a buy, too. The barrel is not a standard length though.

My email is in my profile. Send me some pics and maybe I can determine what you have there.

I am hoping you did not find this striker in North Louisiana.

I took the stock off to see if it might need cleaning and discovered the barrel says “Savage model 12, 223”.

Strikers started life mid grip, left bolt right port, with 14 or 15 inch barrels.

Can this mid grip Striker be converted to a rear grip trigger and me get another stock?

I am interested in the answer to your rear/mid trigger question.

How come my pawn shop finds cost more than gunbroker Roll Eyes

Yes and yes.

Something tells me that some of the Strikers had an oddball bolt spacing. If I was going to do a rear grip I would contact Jim Rockwell first. He might just do one.

Would a Model 12 indicate this is a rifle action? Pretty sure is. Advice to keep overall length at 26+" to stay legal. Might be why bbl is 18".

It's likely the barrel is a take-off from another gun and simply installed on the Striker action.

Found it in a pawn shop 100 miles northeast of Dallas, just south of the OK border.
I’m sure the barrel came off a bull barreled model 12 rifle and they cut it off to 18”.

Good buy out there. Did you end up getting in from one of the pawn shops in Paris ? One of those pawn shops had Spanish fr-7 Mauser that I should have bought about 6 years back. I've had good luck there, the shops in Greenville, and mount pleasant.
