Savage Model Combination


The Stevens .22-.410 over-under combination rifle and shotgun was first offered in 1939 by the J. Stevens Arms Co., a wholly owned subsidiary of the Savage Arms Corp. This gun was chambered for the .22 long rifle cartridge and the 3" length of the .410 shotshell. Guns produced initially had walnut stocks and fore-ends, but stock assemblies of Tenite plastic were later made standard. During World War II the U. S. Air Force purchased 10,000 of these combination guns with Tenite stocks for issue to aircrewmen as survival weapons.

Commercial production was resumed in 1945. In 1950 a slightly improved type with walnut stock assembly and somewhat heavier barrel replaced the original model. It was designated Savage Model 24. When the .22 Winchester

Magnum Rimfire cartridge was introduced in 1959, the Model 24 was made available in this caliber also.

In 1962, the Model 24 was introduced in DL and MDL types, with fire selector button on left side of the frame rather than on the right as on the original model. The Model 24 DL is chambered for the .22 long rifle cartridge and is optionally available with shotgun barrel chambered for either the 20-ga. 3" shell or the .410 3" shell. The Model 24 MDL is chambered for the .22 Winchester Magnum Rimfire cartridge and with the same choice of shot-shell chamberings as the DL.

Disassembly Procedure

breech by tipping barrel downward. Unhook barrel lug from hinge pin at forward end of frame. Remove barrels from frame.

To remove buttstock, unscrew both butt-plate screws and remove buttplate. Unscrew stock bolt (2) through hole in butt of stock. Slide buttstock off frame to rear.

Further disassembly of frame and lock parts is not recommended and should be unnecessary for normal cleaning purposes. Major parts are retained in frame by pivot pins. Firing pins are retained in frame by screws (10 & 11) which are staked at the factory which makes them rather difficult to remove.
