Here is the Savage 99 in 250-3000. It's a 1948 a little older than me! I put an old B&L 4X scope on it just for looks until I can get a new one. Not bad for a 62 year old, the gun not me.
Great pic of a really nice toy.
Hope you get many years of happy hunting with it. Father in law has a Savage 99 that he bought as a young teen in .300 Savage. He still has it, too. It's in really good shape as well. I think yours might be just a year or two older that his (the rifle I mean - come on guys, keep your minds out of the gutter).
