so I found a Savage model 24 chambered in 30-30 and 20 gauge and I was thinking it would make a handy deer and pheasant rifle (I see a lot of pheasant during deer season).

the rifle is ugly to say the least but if its reliable and reasonably accurate then it would be a practical gun for hunting eastern WA.

any one have any experience with these? how is the regulation between barrels?

thanks
-Matt

I have one in 22 hornet over 3" 12ga. Use it for grouse and ptarmigan and love it. It's heavy and kinda ugly so it fits right in:)

The first firearm I ever purchased, a Savage model 24 in .22 rimfire and 20ga. Still have it. The best of both worlds in one gun. My cousin had one in 22Mag and 410: his shotgun was too little and his rifle cartridges too expensive. Mine was great, But a 30-30 sounds useful too. It may not be quite up to H&H Best Quality standards, but it should serve you well..................FWB

yep that's it, except I think yours looks a little nicer. the stock on this one is rather ugly cheap wood and poor looking color case hardening.

the guy wants around $500 for the gun which seems like a good price.

$500 isn't bad, especially in the 30/30 combo. I was looking at these yesterday on an online auction site, $400 is "average" but shipping and transfer, etc,

also I have shot quite a few and worked on a few.

Regulation between barrels, well, one's a rifle and one's a shotgun, one's sighted for 100 and the other's probably good to 30 MAX.

I wouldn't worry too much about that, get the rifle sighted in then pop a few paper targets and see how she patterns.

A friend had one with a 3-9 on it (22/410) that thing was deadly squirrel medicine!

I killed many rabbits and squirrels with my older brothers 410 22lr.A friend of mine found one just like it which now belongs to my son.

I think a 30 30 in a 24 is not very common,I would buy it in a heartbeat if it is in decent condition.

Some people don't like the looks of them but they certainly fill a need.I don't mind the way they look in wood but my gosh,the new plastic stock ones are hedious.

mind telling me where you saw those at $400? the deal at $500 was also online.

I bought some bullets from Rimshot and he is good to trade with!
Greetings all! I've been a hunter for 50 years, but only now planning a trip to Africa. I was fortunate and successfully bid on a couple hunts for plains game in SA later this year and next. Also a rare Native Texas (5th generation) and USMC Vet. Hunt safe y'all!
