Savage 24F .223/12 gauge

Post by snakeyez on Sat Jul 14, 2012 11:41 am

From what I understand, Savage stopped making the model 24 a few years ago? For some reason, I wanted a .223 over 12 gauge model for Christmas years ago and actually got it from my dad. It has turned out to be impractical for me though. I don't know what I want to do with it. Apparently varmint hunters really like them. I wish I would have gotten the 22LR/.410.

Is there much demand for these over/under combo guns anymore? I see them on online auction sites for $400 up.

There's not a lot of demand but they brings a decent price. They are neat guns. I had a .22/20ga called the Campers Companion. It had 20" barrels and a compartment under the buttplate that held 20 ga and .22 shells. I wish I still had it.

I'm contemplating trading it. (note to mods, I am not trying to create a classified ad here) At the time I got it, my needs were much different from today.

I have a couple of different guns that I'd rather have today over this gun.

I just don't know if I could part with it. I should as I haven't shot it or touched it in over 9 years. I've never parted with any gun I've ever owned. Everyone always tells me that they wish they had things back that they had traded off in the past. Hmm.

Keep it unless you really need the cash and that's the only way to get any.

I have a desire for a Ruger SP101 in .357 or maybe .38. I've also desired a double barrel 12 gauge like a Stevens or Stoeger, possibly in a stagecoach or home defense configuration. Would either of these be considered an unreasonable trade for my Savage? I'm new to all this stuff. Just dunno.

I'd sell it outright than buy what you want.

Not sure about the SP101 but it's worth more than the 12 ga SxS's.

I grew up with a 20ga/22mag. Dad traded it in years ago. I recently took delivery of a 22hornet/20ga since i couldnt find a 22mag/20ga like i had.

I want a 30/30 over 12ga

They make the greatest boat gun. My best friend had one we used it at night when we were running trot lines and frog gigging.

Might try carrying it around at the next gun show in town and see what happens. Always wondered how guys like that came out with their private FTF trades at shows.

The .223/12 ga. makes a fine turkey gun! put a scope on top and use it with either barrel for head shots...zero with the .223 and the 12 ga. will take care of itself.

If only it were legal to turkey hunt with a rifle..... I'd be a dedicated turkey hunter if the game wardens didn't frown of that sort of thing.

A 223 over 12ga huh? That sounds like a great gun. I don't believe I'd be able to part with such a thing.

I have a scope on it right now. I was never really pleased with my "sharpshooting" ability. I'm more of a pistol/shotgun person I have found. My rifle happiness comes in the form of a Marlin 30-30.

You might get a decent price from another individual walking around. The dealers offers will be low since they have to sell it and make a profit. I've bought several from people walking around but I've never had any luck selling one.

Well, I've had a couple of PMs asking to see what it looks like.

I know the old 24s had wood, but as far as I know all the later 24s were synthetic with matte black metal.
