Default Savage 42

The Savage 24 over and under is making a comeback. At the SHOT show Savage announced and displayed a prototype '42' which will be polymer. It will be available first in .22LR/.410 then .223/20 gauge I understand. Sounds like a great survival gun - I've always loved the 24 series and making it polymer just will make it more weather resistant and lightweight. MSRP will be around $450 I hear.

On another forum I read where a guy was berating o/u combo guns like the Savage M42 because the top and the bottom barrels weren't soldiered together, which (he claims) will throw off the alignment. And, apparently, Savage has had a record of this happening with some of their later M24's.

So I'm skeptical, but hopeful because this looks like an amazing little gun.

I hope that the 42 takes down easily like the 24 did. I've been trying to find a good used 24 for a while - they're quite hard to come by in my part of the world.

I will consider buying a 42 if it takes down easily...

Savage dropped the origional 24 after decades of success due to their pricing the gun out of reach of the market that would be most accepting of this design.

At $450 they are simply repeating their mistakes.

For that money one can purchase a Savage Axis in any caliber desired and an H&R or NEF shotgun in any guage desired. If you go with the Mossburg 100atr you can have rifle, shotgun and probably have enough money left over to buy a good .22.

When will they realize this is a utility gun, not a luxury gun, and price it accordingly?

I do have to agree on that point. Since it's single shot only, it really limits its use anyways. A Rossi that accepts multiple barrels is much cheaper, and probably works every bit as well. And you can get a youth model for a light gun to hand carry easily.

However, if it sells decent, in a few years there may be some cheaper ones out there.
