I had one of those back in the early 90's that I came by in a trade. Very accurate rifle, took a lot of deer with it before it was stolen in a burglary. I figured whoever stole it would bring it back if they shot it; had pretty good recoil. LOL
Savage doesn't have very good records on their older guns, but there may be some help available: http://www.savagearms.com/cs_historical.htm
You may do a google search and find some more info, too, Chris. Hope you enjoy the rifle. I really liked mine. It's very hard to beat Savage Arms for accuracy.
