*RARE SAVAGE SINGLE SHOT BOLT ACTION PISTOL. Cal. 22. The bbl and bolt action mechanism is of a Savage 1905; frame, trigger and grip assembly is of a 1907 Savage automatic pistol. Featuring an 8″ rapid taper bbl with raised front sight, Mother of Pearl grip with Indian logo as 1907 pistols had on them. No legend on gun. These were originally thought to have been made up by employees but recently it has come to light that they were probably prototypes made up with the idea of going into production with them – very much like one of the Winchester pistols only done by Savage. I feel this gun is 100% orig. Frame and back half of bbl has Excelsior matted finish of which Enoch Tue is famous for, as well as his style engraving on clip. Very interesting, elegantly done little gun. This gun is personally known by cataloger for 35 to 40 years. PROVENANCE: Wes Adams Estate Collection. CONDITION: In fine condition, retaining 95% lightly thinning orig blue. 4-44746 LM56 (3,000-5,000)
