Dating savage rifle serial number
the serial is 3427xx and the lever boss has a z stamped on it. The barrel has .300 savage stamped on it, is it a 99?
Inside the oval, Savage stamped the letter "A" together with other numbers which are apparently inspector’s numbers.
The Blue Book of Used Gun Values offers serial numbers for the following makers: AYA, Boss & Co., Ltd, Browning, EJ Churchill, Colt, Colt Black Powder 2nd Gen, John Dickson & Son, AH Fox, German early Date Codes, German Modern Date Codes, Stephen Grant, WW Greener, Harrington & Richardson, High Standard, Holland & Holland, Italian Year of Mfg.
Date Codes, Ithaca Gun Co., Charles Lancaster, Joseph Lang, Marlin Firearms, Mauser Broomhandles, Parker Brothers Shotguns, Piotti, James Purdey, Remington Date Code & Sx S Shotguns, Savage/Stevens, LC Smith, Smith & Wesson, Spanish Year of Mfg.
Anyhow, the serial number is 646346 and it doesnt have a letter in it. If the serial number is over 500,000 or starts with an A then a 6H would mean that inspector #6 did a final inspection of the rifle in 1956.
If the serial number is lower or higher than that, then the stamp doesn't have any known meaning.
