As you can see it came in the original box.


    The one below is a rare 1915 .32. Only around 6500 were made. The differences in the 1915 as compared to the models 1907 and 1917 are the hidden hammer, grip safety, and a slide lock-back after the last shot .
    Nice specimens boxes are always a plus, and unless you walk the gun shows they're just about impossible to come by.

    I did pick up a nice model 1907 off of GB made in 1911 which included the serialized box and manuals. Unfortunately in North Carolina we don't have that many C&R type shows.

    Here's my 1915 and 32 caliber, the pistol was in pretty nice shape it was missing the hold open latch bar (these were notorious for being lost, but did not impact the function of the pistil other than the slide not locking open on the last end) which I later acquired and and have since installed.

    I prefer the high polish blue of the early ones. But I want to try the later trapezoidal buttstock. Any of those high polish?

    This would be a very early model 1907 and 380 caliber high polish blue either late 1913-14. It's one of my favorites 1913 was the year my father was born.

    A late-model Savage 1907 from the production year 1920, found this one online at Cabela's out in Arizona I believe it was.
    It was a nightstand Queen no doubt, the real signs of wear I question whether it's even been fired.

    The first was my carry gun. This one is in the safe mostly, circa 1911

    Some of the contemporaneous advertisements for the Savage pistols were quite interesting, and probably wouldn't pass muster today. My female gun-owning friends find them hilarious, though.
