I posted this in the "Cold Blue" thread but decided to make a separate thread. I bought this Savage 1907 last weekend. It was a little rough. Actually. I would rate it at 70% according to the Blue Book. After a little work with the Van's Cold Blue treatment, it might score at 80% now. That's about $100 increase in value. Anyway, I found this information on-line and thought it interesting enough to share. Most of all, I found the "Advertizement" drop-down to be the most unusual. Bat Masterson Ad, of all people. http://vintagepistols.com/1907/index.html According to the History Drop-down and the serial number, this pistol was made in 1912. The only pistol that I shoot these days is my Ruger Mk.II. IF I keep this one (not likely) it will be as a collectable.
