    Question is how many 1941 savage's are known that were not converted into snipers?
    I had a 1941 Savage which was not a sniper. Sadly I traded it off...

    I would suggest that the serial number is too high to have been converted at Enfield rather than H&H.

    I think when RogerP takes a look he will point to the pads not exhibiting the Enfield machining pattern, I just noted that they don't have the Enfield inspectors stamping.

    Everyone has a price, I went in a bit heavy handed regarding some unsold lots in an auction in the UKicon, I made a very low offer through email, as the item was in need of some TLC and it had been through several auctions without selling, also had some providence with it but think it related to another pistol ........ in the end they accepted my offer, in fact accepted my offer on another item straightaway.

    Sorry I've not chipped in (FWIW) but when I try to visit the site my McAfee security tells me it's a slightly risky site to visit because of "PUP's", so I've not chanced it, although I presume you guys are all ok....

    For future reference, here are the listings pictures and description:

    Early Savage production in 1942. All matching numbers, all Savage parts. Bore is very good plus. Possibly one of the early (T) conversions done at RSAF Enfield. Rifle only, no scope or mount. These early conversions did not have the S51 Holland & Holland mark on the butt stock, just Enfield inspectors mark on butt socket. Pad screws are not staked as later (T) conversions were. This is a RARE early conversion of a USAicon Savage Stevens made rifle.

    $4,500.

    Thanks! Looks fine to me. As Darren has said, likely an early H&H conversion. I wonder if it bears the S51 on the underside of the butt? Mind, even without it it could be H&H as whilst the S51 seems to have been adopted early I think I've seen at least one rifle that appeared to be totally original that lacked it, & one with a smaller than normal S51. The cheekpiece is typical of those seen on many early dated conversions. (I suspect it is birch, & it has an undercut on the front left edge which is quite obvious in one of the pix).

    FWIW I have 0C769 a scope less T that appears to have never been issued. It has all the expected H&H marks including S51 to the butt stock. I believe that OC1 is similarly marked but I'll let its owner speak for it.

    0C1's wood was totally replaced as the original owner (Bubba) sanded the original wood well past recognition.

    I have 0C160. It was never completed with a telescope. It sports the H&H S-51 and correct Enfield examiner's stamps.

    I have 0C378 & used to own 0C4335 & a pal owned 0C4345. Both latter two were scoped up but 0C378 came to me minus woodwork so I can't say. I believe 0C4335 was possibly set up at Enfield. It did not bear the examiner's mark on the front pad but had no S51 & bore a multitude of examiner's marks on it not normally associated with H&H conversions. It also bore an Enfield barrel. One I regret letting go of.....
