Suspicious!!!! A chief of police not knowing it as a 9mm or stating manufacture? Just a bit odd.that you are asking very fundimental question when if you were a trained law enforcement officer you would have the answer and if you really had a problem your department armor would be your source for answers

Hello, Dennis -

Some firearm manufacturers have information available on their websites so that firearms owners can determine the age of their gun. Winchester is one such manufacturer.

I do not find that information on the website for Savage. This is the link to the home page:
http://www.savagearms.com/

However, Savage Arms company does have a web page where one can fill out a form to send a request for information via email:
https://savagearms.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/requests/new

On that form, I suggest you choose the Support Category of "Historical Request."

As for a valuation of your firearm, I do not know if you reside in the USA, where I am most familiar with reputable appraisal sources. If you do not reside in the USA, then, I suggest you visit your local public library and ask a reference / information librarian to help you find a list of reputable firearms appraisers. I am a librarian by profession.

To find a firearms appraiser, I suggest you use your favorite search engine (I use Google) and enter the following search phrase:
firearms appraiser

Plus, use the International Society of Appraisers (ISA) web site to find a member who appraises firearms:
http://www.isa-appraisers.org/
Choose the Find An ISA Member link near the top of the page. Then, on the Find An ISA Member page, enter the word firearms in the Find box. Leave the location box blank for the widest possible search.

Compare the lists of firearms appraisers - the list you compiled with your search engine search and the results of the ISA search.

In the USA, several things to consider about a firearms appraiser:
* Is the person accredited by either the American Society of Appraisers, the Appraisers Association of America, the International Society of Appraisers, or the American Gunsmithing Institute?
* Is the appraisal business a member of the Better Business Bureau?

I am the daughter of an NRA approved marksmanship coach who also was licensed to sell firearms.

Best wishes.

Hello, Mark -

What do you need to know about your Winchester .30-30? Are you wishing to learn what year the rifle was manufactured? If so, the Winchester firearms company has records of the firearms they manufactured and so that you can identify the manufacturing year.

Go to this Winchester web page:
http://www.winchesterguns.com/support.html

Look along the left sidebar until you see the link for Date Your Firearm. Left click on that link. There is a link to a PDF (Adobe Reader) document with date ranges and serial numbers.

What manufacturer and model is it. 1911 types can get hung up if the assembly order is not exactly as it should be, HK can be a real pain if pins were removed and re-inserted incorrectly, Glocks can bind if the slide is not aligned correctly. So it depends on what you've got...

1 talk to then, not the man standing next to them.
2 open every firearm and inspect it to ensure it is unloaded
3 hand it to them action open without pointing the muzzle at them
4 don't sell them what ever the store is pushing that week. sell what matches their needs.

So my best advice would be take out all the 0-Rings etc and bring them to a local hardware store and get replacements but also the piercing piece may be worn down.
