    interesting rifle...judging by the blueing loss and sanded stocks, it looks like it's had a fairly hard life.

    I would be interested in knowing:

    - original 2 or 6 groove barrel?? replacement Britishicon 5 groove?

    - Interesting markings on the front sight guard, and have markings been wiped from the receiver below the serial number? Is that a broad arrow above the last number of the serial?

    again, $2,500-$2,800 overpriced.

    Would this one be more valuable since it was issued with a scope?Most of the other savage rifles I have seen, never had a scope installed.

    2 of my 3 savages No4Ts had scopes, the 3rd had replacement wood, so one can't tell.

    I believe that if we look closely, most (if not all) of the Savage MkI rifles were fitted with scopes.

    The Savage MkI* rifles are where the "less telescope" rifles show up.

    My Savage No4MkI*(T) was originally fitted with a telescope.

    Pretty much the way with them though, they don't come down either. They just sit until someone buys it.

    In my "Sniper Records" I have 39 Savage Mk I T s/n listed (Mk I*'s omitted)

    15 have confirmed scopes paired with them, 14 are unknown, 10 are confirmed never fitted with scopes.

    How many 1941 snipers are known?Looks like 41 savage rifles are quite scarce.This one has serial 3548
    Question is how many 1941 savage's are known that were not converted into snipers?

    Not true. I have seen them cut some prices in half if the item(s) don't sell after a year, or in other cases the prices drop a few hundred dollars. And I have managed some slight negotiation on items...ymmv. They do get some very nice stuff, and where else in Canadaicon do you find these kind of items with a buy it now button?

    A while back they had 3 scopeless Ts show up for around $800-900 each. I got a nice Britishicon made but Cdn marked T out of that deal. Inflation has certainly hit on this one.

    So, Why would there be a stamp resembling the BSA factory Enfield inspectors D7E stamp on the right cheek? Do other Savage T's have Enfield inspector stamps and, if they do, would they not be the expected D6E? That is, indeed, a brutal price. As mentioned above, this outfit is always pricing items on the high to extremely high side of the envelope but eventually everything seems to move. Perhaps they negotiate with some but I'm not on that special list and simply don't buy there any longer.
