    I know it isn't tactical - Savage Model 24V

    I have a Savage Model 24V, .30-30 over 20 gauge, and have had the PLASTIC (ugh!) trigger guard break on me a couple of times now. I decided to look for a better replacement. I ordered one over the internet, but it was for a different model and not what I needed. Another company said they used to make some, but didn't know when they'd do another run.

    I finally took matters into my own hands. I spoke with a machinist I know about getting some brass stock. He did me one better and got the stock and did the rough cutting on a bandsaw in his shop. I took the blank home and with a few hand files, some sandpaper and emory cloth, a Dremel tool and some time and a lot of nervousness, I turned out a new guard for my combo gun.

    Using the brass was inspired by a photo I found on the internet of another gun of the same model with a homemade brass replacement You can see in the photos how I tried to stay close the original design. I need to do a bit more polishing, there are still a few scratches left from the filing. But it's a good start.

    Make sure you get full value out of today , Do something worthwhile, because what you do today will cost you one day off the rest of your life .

    Indeed.

    I believe the OP was referring to tacticool, the gecko45 version of tactical.

    That is a sweet gun by the way...

    I agree, it's a very sweet gun, and I know what he was referring to.

    Was simply throwing that out there for those that actually don't know what it means.

    Tactical has become a buzz word and I say it with disdain on most occasions.

    Tactical IMHO is a mind set and frankly if i ever again am shot at i hope it is by a fool or fools armed with " Tactical" weapons , and not one fella with a mindset and a savage 24 . Now understand you can die either way , but the thinking fella with the savage is a lot less likely to give me an opportunity to shoot back .

    Slick. Well done!
