    Old Gun Buffs... Help.....

    A co-worker, of mine, was renovating an old house he had purchased, recently and found an old rifle, which he gave to me. I brought it home and was surprised, how well it cleaned up, it's a Savage Arms Model 5, I can't find a serial number on it anywhere. Does anyone know anything about these weapons, and most of all, if and where I can get parts for it, since it's missing it's bolt. The only info I can find, is they made them between 1938-64, other than that I have no info. Any help would be great.

    Does it have a tubular magazine?

    This gun was also made for other retailers like Sears.......

    Your best bet for a bolt would be a gun show.

    For parts, try Gun Parts Corp. out of NY. I've had good luck with them for hard-to-find parts. Good luck!

    Yeah it has a tubular magazine, it's a pretty simple rifle, I could see where Sears may have sold this one. I would love to get it back in working order.

    You might try www.NumrichArms.com. A bit pricy, but they have a bunch of old stuff.

    http://www.e-gunparts.com/ and Numrich are the same company. Numrich very wisely grabbed a domain name, e-gunparts.com, that was much more easily remembered than their name and which described what they do. Your link does not take you to the Numrich site, but rather to a generic site that lists a number of gun related sites.

    The person who gave me the rifle, is quite a bit older than I am and made the statement that he had a similar one growing up. That made me decide to try and restore this on, as well as I could and give it back to him, in thanks for his generousity and friendship. After I initially started cleaning it, things were looking better than I thought they would. I disassembled it and started with the stock and the internals, all cleaned up well, I thought great, now all I need is a bolt assembly and a little more TLC. Not so I guess, I oiled down the barrel assembly and tube magazine, lastnight, now rust is bleeding through the finish. I think this poor little rifle was just neglected too long, for me to bring it back, on the funds I have, I can't say I didn't have fun tryin' though
