    Sounds good.

    Well, I was made an offer that I could not resist so I now have a Model 24 in .22 over .410. It is not in perfect shape, but it works and the "price" was right. I will try and get a couple of pics later.

    Default 24C is my favorite

    I looked for one of these for years and finally got one on GunBroker in excellent condition with the original take down case. .22LR over 20 gauge 3". It's perfect! mine is slightly different from the pics, it has a straight grip stock. There is a swing out butplate hatch that conceals storage in the buttstock for 7 .22LR rounds and 2 20GA rounds

    I found 2 model 24`s at a gun shop today. One is a 24C 22/20ga the othe is a 24S 22mag/20 ga. He wants 250.00 for the 24C it is in good shape other than a small crack in the stock by the receiver. The 24S is in great shape and I can get it for 275.00. Does this sound like a decent deal ?

    Thanks for the info ! I picked up 2 new Savage rifles today that he had ordered for me or I would have bought at least 1 of the 24`s today. I think I will call him tomorrow and have him hold both of them for me until I can get back up there next week.

    Buy them both, and I'll take the .22 mag/20ga off your hands and add in a handling fee?

    I had one in 22 mag over 20 guage. It was a beautiful gun that had a nice balance and took down with the press of a slide under the for stock, only one problem. Siamese barrels are almost a lost art and it was lost to who ever built mine. The rifle barrel was so far off the sights had to be set so far to the side it looked funny. I never cared for the balance of the newer ones but if I do find another one I'd get it but only after sighting it in.

    Great thread. Been looking for one of these guns for a while now. But I have a question I'm sure y'all can answer for me. I see there are two barrel selection locations one on the side and one by the hammer. Which one is the best? thanks.

    Dennis,

    Actually there are several versions. It all comes down to personal preference.

    My favorite is the lever just behind the hammer. All my .22 LR are this version.

    I also have a .22 WMR that has a side lever break. While this is not my favorite, I like the fact that I can grab that gun in a cloth case and instantly feel that I have the .22 Mag in my hands.

    There is also a bottom button, located just forward of the trigger guard. My son has this version, but I do not care for it.

    I could post pics, if you like, but I don't think I have all versions.

    Just find one you like. Buy it. And never sell it (except to me)

    Thanks for your help. I was told that the ones that had the selector on the side were prone to problems. I have no expericnec with them that's why I was asking.

    Dennis,

    While I am no expert, I'd be glad to answer any questions. PM me if you wish.

    The M24 is my favorite.

    Finally found my .22/20ga Camper's Companion Model 24 Savage. If you are patient, they will show-up and be the price you can afford.
    Now I just have to sell something else to restock the "mad money".
    I did end up swapping for that .22/.410 earlier, I may just have to turn it loose now.
    Have Lights? Thank a Lineman!

    There is a "Receiver Sight" available for the Model 24, it mounts on the left side of the receiver.

    Sorry, I don't but they are/were made by "Williams"Sight Co. or "Lyman" Sight Co. I would start with Brownell's Gun Parts. If you strike-out let me know.
