Combination rifles?
« on: June 11, 2016, 10:17:04 pm »
Does anyone know of a manufacturer who makes a 'combination' O/U .22lr and .410 shotgun?  Apparently these were the thing back in the sixties, and my father has decided that he needs one.  I am sure they are on GB, (and I found a few a while back) but does anyone offer them new?

    I saw one a couple weeks ago at Sportsman's Warehouse, Mossberg IIRC.  Or maybe Savage.

    Savage model 42 takedown.

    Either .22 long rifle or .22 mag over .410.

    Should retail around $400.

    Springfield imported from Eastern Europe one called the M6 Scout.  A little crude but I like mine...

    Okay, thanks for the leads.  Is there anything out there with a wood stock?

    I think JesseL means the Savage model 24. I have one. It was a Christmas present when I was 6 years old in 1969 from my Dad while he was on leave from Viet Nam. I still have it. I've killed more rabbits with it than I can remember.

    It hasn't worked for years. I'd love to find a gunsmith that could fix it.

    Thank's for the thread. It brought back a lot of great memories.

    That looks fine to me, but I am pretty sure the target audience is going to require a wood stock.

    Yupper, that is the one I saw.

    Good luck finding a new one with wood. Check the CZ catalog they might have one.  The one I grew up around is .223 over 20 GA, a nice combo but a bit much for bunnies.

    I had one of the original Savage model 24's .   Mine was both heavy and unspectacular in terms of accuracy.   The .22 barrel wasn't bad but the .410 shotgun barrel did not shoot to point of aim with anything I tried out of it.   YMMV but anything with two barrels shooting very different types of ammunition are notoriously hard to regulate.

      I love combo guns, been wanting one in something and 12 gauge for ages....hard to find, even harder to find for a decent price or in a caliber I want.....I really don't want a .222 over 12 gauge  :shrug

    My brother has one, wood stocked, received new for Christmas in 1971.  It is .22 Magnum over 20 gauge Magnum.  I never shot it so I don't know how accurate it is.   :shrug

    I have a 22 over 20 gauge Savage model 24. Once handled a 30-30 over 12 ga and wish I had bought it. They don't show up on Gunbroker often and rarely see them used.
