Our Assessment: Make this legendary rifle yours today! The Savage Model 99 is perhaps the most iconic weapon produced by Savage Arms throughout their storied history. The Model 99 was designed by Arthur Savage himself and had several unique and innovative features that made it a worthy competitor to the big names at the time like Colt and Winchester. The most notable of these features is the Model 99’s rotary feed magazine. The magazine’s cylindrical design meant it could fit higher power rounds than the tube fed magazines of its competitors. It even had a built in round counter on the side of the gun. The Model 99 was produced for 100 years practically without changes, and it would make a mark on the firearms world during that time. Many famous big game hunters including Roy Chapman and Harry Caldwell would use this gun, and it would even end up in the hands of lawmen like Frank Hamer, the man who caught Bonnie and Clyde. This rifle in particular is chambered in .300 Savage, the mainstay round for the firearm. .300 Savage was a comparable round to the .30-06 that was common US issue during World War II. Don’t miss your chance and grab up this iconic firearm today!
