Wrong Box Sir

The Chomps Collection did an inventory and discovered an unremembered pistol.

Prolly got lost in the excitement of my Glock 45 Blue Label purchase the same day.

It's a Savage 1907 made after the bankruptcy and 1917 reorganization as Savage Arms Corporation.

We'd initially ID'd it as a Model 1917 because it says so on the box!

It's hard to see, but the serial number penciled in on the box doesn't match the pistol pictured above.

A good write up of the history is here.

C&Rsenal's vid of the French purchase is here.

The first time I bumped into the Savage I was surprised at the 10-round capacity and that such an old design had a double stack, single feed magazine.


It's a wonder thirty two!

It comes apart easily.

The safety is multi-functional.  In addition to being a safety, it will also lock the slide in either position and will keep the striker from being cocked.

Trigger is a short, but mushy, 7 lb. 9 oz.

Pretty nifty!


  1. Dude you have some seriously cool guns.

  2. I've got one that looks very similar. It is an interesting piece. The action is quite different from most other semi auto pistols as is easily seen in the broken down photo.
