You are watching: Savage model 170 pump 30 30
I JUST BOUGHT A SAVAGE MODEL 170 30-30 IN LIKE NEW CONDITION FROM MY WIFES GIRLFRIEND. HER FATHER JUST PASSED AND SHE WAS SELLING SOME OF THE THINGS SHE DIDN"T WANT TO KEEP AND I GOT THE RIFLE FOR 100.00 DOLLARS. I BOUGHT IT BECAUSE I HAD NEVER SEEN ONE BEFORE AND KNOW NOTHING ABOUT IT. I TRIED TO RUN THE SERIAL NUMBERS TO SEE WHEN IT WAS MADE BUT CAME UP WITH NOTHING. FOR WHAT I PAID FOR IT I KNOW I DIDN"T GET RIPPED OFF IT HAS A 4X9 TASCO SCOPE THAT LOOKS LIKE NEW AND A SLING. I SHOT IT FOR THE FIRST TIME THIS WEEKEND AND AT 100 YARDS WAS HITTING AN INCH FROM A MILK CAP. I WAS WONDERING IF ANYBODY COULD TELL ME ANYTHING ABOUT IT. THANK YOU IF YOU COULD.
First off, welcome to G&G. I"m sure someone will be able to assist you. I however know very little of the one you have. Again, glad you found the site. Trust me, you will find it informative and the members very helpful.
I have known a couple of people who had this gun and were pleased with it. From my observations they seem to be good guns with pretty respectable accuracy for a hunting gun. There are some that have feeding problems but from the two I know who have them one in 30-30 and the other in 35 rem, they have never failed to feed or fire. For what you paid for it I am confident you got a great deal on a good gun! Contrats and enjoy!!!

I"m sure Mad Dog will be in on this one. He has owned both a 30-30 and a 35 Rem. He had problems with the 30-30 feeding that he couldn"t resolve but like it well enough to try the 35 Rem which I understand he has had no feeding issues with, I"m sure he will be here to shed some wisdom.

You wanna sell it you lucky feller !!! That is the pump action isn"t it or is it the bolt action ?819 RedHourse don"t run off,hang around and enjoy the site and WELCOME to GUN and GAME...A.H
Redhorse, as Trix said, I have had both calibers and still own the 35 Rem. My opinion on why some of the 30-30"s jam is cause Savage never made the lifter properly and the rimmed case on the 30-30 hangs up on the edges and jams. I found that if you really rack the pump hard it doesn"t jam as much as it would if you be gentle with it. Gimme a partial of your serial number including the letter it begins with and I"ll tell you when it was made.
