    LGS has a Camper's Companion (22 LR over 20 gauge) with brown takedown case (looks like tan vinyl).
    The rifle is minty with zero dings, scratches, etc....guy asking $350....pass or not?

    I'd take it at that price. They don't turn up to often, especially not in that configuration. It's the perfect what I call a "pot hunter" gun. Whatever shows up, goes in the pot.

    I had one years ago, and rather foolishly traded it off. It's one of the very few guns I regret trading.

    Grab it. I stumble in to one a bit cheaper and the owner of the gunshop still rags me about how I took advantage of him. We're friends but he knows now that when they show up around here the get $450 and up for them. The .22/20 is my favorite of the combinations, much better than the .410 IMO. If I didn't have one I'd easily go $450 for one.

    Here she is wit ha custom Myrtlewood stock. Since I only paid $325 I though that a little fancy would be nice. I don't know if all of them are so well regulated or if it's luck, but a 25ydzero with most .22 ammo is a 50 yd zeo for Remington 20 ga slugs and the pattern with #6 field loads is "Minute of rabbit" at 20 yds.

    I would grab it ASAP! I had one too and sold it a few years ago because I needed the money. Wish I had it back!

    Got it! Actually wanted one since I was a kid when I saw it in a gun rag in the late 70's.

    The vinyl case is a little cheesy with one small tear but after a quick cleaning to the rifle(mostly lint/dust, zero rust anywhere), I realized how much nicer it was than my intital description!

    Any place (other than calling Savage) I might locate a "born-on" date?

    Barrel marked 'Series S' with a serial number E2765xx.

    Will be posting a few pics later and thanks to all for the great advice!

    A bit high, but every gun seems to be selling at a premium these days. This is probably because all the people who sold cheap ARs and GI mags for 3 times their previous price are investing their gains in other guns. I know I did.

    I paid $250 for mine about 2-3 years ago, but I also spent 6 months looking for it. Considering how scarce these are I would probably pay $350 for a nice example.

    The 20 gauge is going to kick more than a bit (it makes a really lousy skeet gun, ask me how I know). I thought about putting a recoil pad on mine and decided that considering what it is intended for I can put up the occasional sore shoulder. I have mine in one of those corrosion resistant bags and it lives in my SUV inside a Pac-Safe. I figure if I am ever broke down in the wilderness (this is a 4 wheel drive after all and I am therefore permitted to dream) that I couldn't ask for a better wilderness survival gun. I keep the following ammo with it:

    Brick of 500: .22 LR
    50: #6 High Brass Game Load
    25: #3 Buck
    25: 3/4 oz Slugs

    The media would undoubtedly get all excited about my arsenal (who could possibly need 500 evil rifle bullets and 100 deadly shotgun shells!) if I ever came to somebodies attention.

    The point is this is my primary bug-out weapon. I want to be able hunt for the pot and take any large animals I come across if there is a reason to do so. I figure that is sufficient to take care of my needs for an extended period of time.

    If you are going to store it in a vehicle I strongly recommend getting a Pac Safe. It will protect the gun against a smash and grab theft and will also ensure your kids can't get their hands on it.

    Did you get that with the custom stocks for $325? If so then you did steal it.

    When are you going to start selling them custom Myrtlewood stocks? I would take a set.

    Mine is very accurate. I hate leaf style sights, but I can't complain about the accuracy. I wish there was a simple way to mount a Williams 5D peep sight on it.

    Must be one of them-thar semi-automatic AR-24C's. That price is pure foolishness and he didn't get it either. Interesting that the seller put a non-even starting bid on it ($1469), I guess he wanted to fool someone into thinking somebody had actually bid that much for it.

    That price isn't a bit high at all. The Camper is one of the more valuable 24 variants.
