Default Another Savage 1907 pistol

Came across this Savage Model 1907 today.......well sort of. The pistol has been languishing at a local gun-shop since Christmas so they were very open to a deal I guess. Asking price was $400, but I offered $350.00 and the sale was made. I purchased a 1907 last year (along with a Smith & Wesson "Lemon Squeezer" Safety Hammerless) and according to the serial numbers both models were made in 1910. As you can tell my latest acquisition has led an easier life than the pistol I purchased last year. However they both have very clean bores and are in very good mechanical condition. Wolff makes springs for the model so I'll be ordering replacement springs; something I do as a routine when I purchase used pistols (semi-auto). It's a neat little pistol and I find it very easy to shoot. Rather art-deco in it's design as well.

It's been laying in the display case of a local gun-shop since last Christmas. I decided that if it was there today I would make an offer; figured there was a good chance the business owner was ready to see it go out the door. It was still there and he was more than willing to give me a deal.

I have a 1907 and a 1917. Ií still on the lookout for the hammerless 1915. They are harder to find. I like these old pistols. I even have a nice book describing these Savage pistols. Thanks for sharing.

The Savage 1907 clan is a great bunch of practical pocket pistols. I own a couple of 1907s and have one of the elusive 1915 hammerless guns; photograph below. Only 6,500 of these were made in .32 ACP caliber. They also incorporated a grip safety and a hold-open mechanism. It was an advanced design for its era.

Well, since the 1907 and 1915 have been shown in the thread, I'll close out the trio with my 98% 1917 in .32. Like all of the variants, each model was available in 32 and 380, the 380s are the rarest in all versions.

They are sweet pocket pistols, well ahead of their time, that offered features still being relevant today such as being the 1st striker fired, and the first with double stack magazines.

I call the pics below "Bad, Bad, Leroy Brown "

Several years ago I found a 1917 at a local pawn shop. I can't recall the price, but I do recall it being in very good shape. I would have purchased it, but I didn't have as much discretionary income then so I had to pass. Well the hunt is half of the fun.

The razor is kind of interesting in its own right. The decorative metal, and that portions of the blade are carbonia blued. I got it in the box and despite Google searches, haven't been able to find anything on the retailer out of New York. Folks more knowledgeable than myself estimated it's from around 1900 or so.

I just think it's kind of cool, but the workmanship went into it, just like the Savage, we'll probably never see the likes of again.
