New to this forum curious if anyone on here is a savage collector or should I say 99 freak

over the past few years they have become my obsession other than collecting ruger number ones 99s are one of my growing collectors 

I've owned a few, but those were purchased to resell.  Great rifles.

I inherited my father’s 99 in .358 Winchester. It’s mostly a safe queen. Dad who grew up shooting a model 94 in 30-30 loved his lever actions and he loved that the 99s could take a pointed bullet given their rotary magazine.

Welcome to the forum!

I do like the 99's, though I've never owned one. A unique, and in my opinion, elegant, design compared to the other lever guns of the late 19th century. 

I sure hope you share some pictures of your Number 1 collection, it think they are some of the nicest looking guns. I love watching hickok45's video shooting one in 375 H&H Magnum :)

I collect Sav 99s. I belong to forum groups on 24hourcampfire and FB. I've also attended the yearly Rendezvous for club members, held in Noxon Pa., in Aug. This year will be my 5th year. Will also be attending the Savagefest in Wellsboro, Pa., in June.

I currently own six...1 99RS 300 Sav, 1 99EG 300 Sav and 4 '50s 99Fs, 2 in 308, 300 and 250 Sav.

I have other obsessions, as well. They include Kimber Montanas and Classic Selects, as well as Ruger 77RL ultralight tangers.

Welcome aboard.

99’s are a gun I love and own a closet full but I absolutely hate the way they carry in the woods so I’ve never killed a deer with one. They were a design way ahead of time and if made today would cost thousands of dollars. 
 

I have two 250-3000’s one is a takedown

 two 300’s 

two 358’s 

a 308 

and a 30-30

The 99’s were a gun that I remember there being a few of  every weekend on the gun rack at the Adirondack deer camp my father was in when I was a young fellow. I can remember sitting on the couch staring at that rack while I listened to the stories. There were 4  guns that  I remember being a staple, they were  savage 99’s, ruger 44 mag carbines, Winchester/marlin levers and Remington 760/7600’s. I made it a life mission to own all of those guns and have accumulated a pretty good collection of all of them today. Those old timers knew what they were doing with shooting iron back then because with the exception of the 99’s they’re all excellent big woods guns that are a dream to tote all day.

I have had a couple Ruger #1’s; only thing right now is a 450/400; loads of fun to shoot.

Being adaptable to almost any cartridge design; they are a fun gun to own as there are all kinds out there plain to fancy in many iterations.
