Look at the prices of the first book. It's more of a pamphlet really.

What did P.T.Barnum say??

Amazon has "sellers" that put ridiculous prices on books looking to hook suckers.

Check ebay for actual, realistic prices on gun books.

Oh how I love the 99's!  Shot my first deer in 1978 with a model 1895 chambered in .303 Savage. Every store that carried ammo back then most likely carried .303 Savage. I kept a bunch of boxes and have them to this day. I still have that old rifle, along with a model 1899 of the same caliber. I've traded a couple others I now regret letting go.  Smoothest lever gun need ever produced IMHO.  

Factoid: In the movie Death Hunt, Charles Bronson carries a Savage 99. Cool. You never see them in movies.

We'd love to see them!

If you click the top link above, you'll find that Amazon has a book to tell you about them for only $1125.......plus shipping.

The bottom link is seriously a great book about them.

I'll dig them out. The 1885 was  unfortunately severely  damaged in a house fire many years ago. Serial #7xxx. BUT I saved it, minus the destroyed stock and forearm.  Ive had work done on it (it is only valuable to me now).  I will post when I get a chance, along with the 1899. 

As for books, The Ninety-Nine: a history of the Model 99 Rifle by Doug Murray used to be the go to

I like the 99 in .250 Savage with the cartridge counter. If they have been taken any care of at all you better stay behind the muzzle end. Good handling and flat shooting.

Yeah. That's the one Amazon wants so much money for now.
