  • savage 99 crescent.., anybody?

    Hello all, I'm in the process of "restoring" my grandpa's 99 (it's mine now). I'm getting some wood cut and the butt stock is from an original pattern with the "crescent" type of butt, you know the one that looks like an upside down "L" with a bent "leg." Anybody out here know where I can get an original, (crescent plate) or know of one that will work with minimal "fitting?" thanks.

    I would try Brownells http://www.brownells.com/ and Numrich http://www.gunpartscorp.com/ and see what they have. Failing that http://www.turnbullrestoration.com/ Doug Turnbull might be able to help, and of course you could get lucky on one of the auction sites http://www.gunbroker.com/

      I can't think of any better part sources than those already listed. I was looking through my muzzleloader links for tutorials on fitting crescent buttplates. Couldn't find the one I wanted for a deep crescent, but this one gives the basics.

      If books are more your line, this one is one of the best going. Muzzleloading stuff again, but great info on stock work.

            99 crescent buttplate

            358wsm-
            Look on Ebay, there's one on there right now (8hrs. left). Be prepared, it's bid at $102.00
            now and is sure to rise. It even has the mounting screws (it should at that price). Go to Sporting Goods/then click "Hunting", Then click "Gun Parts", Then click "Rifle", then click "Savage", you're there.
            Hope this helps.
