Some questions that are worth raising is 1) Competition aspect and 2) Are there any 2017 models of the rifles and pistols that could be added? Shteffy409 (talk) 06:24, 1 February 2017 (UTC)


This article is quite unclear about the location of said company. The references to the House of Commons and "97% exports to the US" imply that the company is not in the US, and may be in the UK. But the only locations mentioned are in New York and Massachusetts. So where is it? Polymath69 18:15, 19 February 2006 (UTC)

Savage Arms is an American company. They operate a factory in Canada which produces all of their rimfire rifles. I imagine the "97%" refers to the output of the Canadian factory. -- 19:03, 9 May 2006 (UTC)

The page uses the term 'manule' in the location section. I can't fathom what word was originally meant. If someone else can, that would be nice. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 15:28, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

It's overlooked vandalism (from March '09!). Thanks for catching it. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 19:14, 10 March 2010 (UTC)

Information wanted[edit]

I have a savage arms Springfield 12 gage double barrel mod. 511. i would like some information on it.

Savage Pistols[edit]

There is absolutely no information or links to the Savage Model 1906/7/8/etc. Pistols. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 14:36, 22 April 2009 (UTC)


I did the revert, because for some reason someone felt it necessary to remove the firearms project tag, which seems to be quite relevant to this article. Also they added a strange comment/ad about Marlin guns, which doesn't belong here. Arthurrh 22:07, 17 August 2007 (UTC) . Trekphiler 00:57, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

I'm having a hard time trying to figure out what exactly that has to do with Savage Arms? Arthurrh 03:57, 23 August 2007 (UTC)

Automatic Firing Squad[edit]

Did you know the the automatic firing squad used 3 Savage rifles, oddly the tradition of using a blank was used; as was a silencer.--LandonJaeger (talk) 00:29, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

It was only used once.--LandonJaeger (talk) 00:31, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

As for its fate...(hint:) it may have become part of a P-51.--LandonJaeger (talk) 00:37, 1 July 2009 (UTC)

Apparent contradiction[edit]

"In 1939, Savage introduced the Model 24, a rare U.S. double rifle, which is actually an over-under rifle/shotgun combination that sold over a million copies.[2]"

It's rare but it sold a million copies. Sorry, but that does not compute. —Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 03:45, 14 March 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it does. Double rifles are rare in the U.S. Still, it could be clearer. Thanks for pointing it out. TREKphiler any time you're ready, Uhura 04:24, 14 March 2010 (UTC)
For many years Savage was the only U.S. maker of over/under rifle/shotgun combination guns, and historically the only major maker of combo guns. I have never heard Savage 24s called double rifles.--Naaman Brown (talk) 11:06, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

Powered Lawnmower[edit]

"After the war it produced the first motorized lawnmower.[1]"

Another Wikipedia article claims Atco made first powered lawnmower in 1921:

I was going to add something about this discrepancy, but as I don't know much about early powered lawnmowers I haven't done. The Savage claim is made on their web site, but this still contradicts the other Wikipedia article. Mongoosander (talk) 18:36, 11 November 2011 (UTC)

Wasn't Atco was a cylinder mower and the Savage a rotary blade mower? Still I am not sure that the Savage was the "the world's first motorized (rotary blade) lawnmower". I suspect we could spend a lot of research correcting histories written by public relations depts. The best thing to say about ad copy is "caveat lector": it leaves out conditions. --Naaman Brown (talk) 11:22, 11 June 2012 (UTC)

W.G. "Billy" Manson ad[edit]

Billy Manson was a famous hunting guide in my part of the country, that being the Bridge River-Lillooet Country of British Columbia, in the late 1800s and very early 20th Century; This image on dropbox is a halftone scan of his ad for Savage Rifles reproduced in a book called Halfway to the Goldfields: A History of Lillooet by Lorraine Harris; where she had the original half-toned for her book and in whose collection it is I don't know; maybe company still has this on file. There's no article on Manson yet, or on his sons, all notable - Manson's father was Donald Manson of the Hudson's Bay Company. This image obviously can't be used by wikipedia or I'd upload it instead of link it; my questions are "do I have the right company?" and "if this image is available in better quality, I'll use it on an article about Manson" and "it's a cool picture, this (in the original) or something like it would look good for the page, no?". I'm not sure that's the record grizzly he shot that's in this photo/halftone, it might be....(near Gun Lake not that it matters.Skookum1 (talk) 14:59, 29 March 2013 (UTC)

Reverting to old version[edit]

I am reverting this article to the old version due to the conflict of interest issues mentioned by other editors. We can add back the content lost as it is vetted. Averyevilcentipede (talk) 12:47, 10 May 2016 (UTC)
