    Mine must be pre-1923 then. It has no model number. Just Savage Sporter. It has an old Weaver G6 scope on it.

    Was the savage 23 easily scopable or does it require some technicality to do so

    My Savage sporter is drilled and tapped for a side mount. Seems like a simple installation.

    Mine is drilled and tapped for a receiver peep sight, but not for the side scope mount. I did not care for the peep, because it would have required a higher front sight, because the sight arm must be raised high enough to clear the bolt. Not well thought out. So am using the factory open sights. If anyone has a Savage 23, wants the peep and can live with having to install a higher front sight, being aware of these issues, then PM me.

    I did some casting today, including a pile of Ideal 311008 115gr .32-20 bullets, lower right in the photo. I do love shooting the 32s

    Very true sharps4590. This was the first time out hunting for this model 53 after I repaired and refinished it. I was hunting ground hogs on a state game lands and came across this field lion at about 40-50 yards. He never knew I was there. Lyman 3118, air cooled COW, 5.5/Unique, about 1400fps, small pistol primer. Very accurate load, fun to shoot gun. I've shot a lot of ground hogs with that gun in the years since.
