Savage 99 (Pre-World War 2)

     Notes: This rifle is a descendant of earlier Savage lever-action designs stretching back to 1887.  The Savage 99 was designed shortly after World War 1, and production stopped shortly after World War 2 began.  The Savage 99 is fed from an internal rotary magazine, unusual for a lever-action rifle.  Most of these pre-World War 2 rifles are essentially identical for game purposes, but the following variants of note exist. 

     The Model 99E is a carbine form of the Model 99; it has a 20-inch barrel.  The Model 99F (Featherweight) is a lightened takedown version.  The Model 99R fired only two different cartridges, but used a 24-inch barrel for the .300 Savage chambering.

Savage 99 (Post-World War 2)

     Notes: Production of the Savage 99 continued after World War 2.  The rifles produced were largely the same as the pre-war rifles, but were built with more modern methods and in some cases, materials.  Some new options were also offered in some cases, such as detachable box magazines.  Chamberings also evolved into more modern ones.  However, by 1985, all production of the Savage 99 series had stopped with the exception of the 99C.  An amazing amount of over one million of the Savage 99 series had been built; it is perhaps the most common lever-action rifle in the world.

     The post-war Model 99A was basically a modernized version of the pre-war rifle, with better safeties, and dropping of the .303 Savage and .30-30 Winchester chamberings in favor of .243 Winchester and 7.62mm NATO.  The Model 99C has a detachable box magazine.  A new Model 99E, also a carbine version, was developed, as well as a new Model 99F.  A new 99R was also made, but all of these had 24-inch barrels in post-war form.

Shiloh Sharps 1874 Saddle Rifle

     Notes: This is a reproduction of the Sharps 1874 Saddle Rifle by Shiloh Rifle Manufacturing of Montana.  This particular version of their Sharps 1874 reproductions (they make 11 reproductions of the various types of Sharps 1874 rifles), is sort of a “carbine” model, one of the shorter-barreled models they make, with a 26” barrel.  It comes in several chamberings, and is able to fire both blackpowder and modern loads.  The barrel is octagonal, with several weights available (the version below is with the heavy barrel).  The standard stock is a straight-grain walnut stock with a straight wrist, but a version made from beautiful semi-fancy American black walnut is also available, as well as woods of fancy, extra-fancy, and presentation-grades.  The finish on the metal may be color case-hardened, French gray, bone & charcoal, matte blued, or antique metal, with a pewter fore-end grip.  The butt may be sculpted out of the wood, have a steel plate, or a rubber end.  This rifle is lever-action, with a falling-block operation and single shot.

     Twilight 2000 Notes:  This is a very rare weapon in the Twilight 2000 timeline.

Smith & Wesson 320 Revolving Rifle

     Notes: This is a small-arms revolver taken to its greatest (and some would say, most ridiculous) extreme.  The revolver portion is essentially a Smith & Wesson #3 with very long barrels and a forearm sleeve attached. At the time of its introduction, the Model 320 was considered expensive, deficient in onboard ammo supply, and somewhat of a contrivance, and few were built and even less sold.  239 of the 16-inch-barrel version were built, 514 of the 18-inch-barrel model, 224 of the 20-inch-barrel versions were built.  The barrel could not be removed and the revolver returned to its pistol form only with the services of a skilled armorer. The .320 Revolving Rifle cartridge was made specifically for this weapon.  These rifles were produced from 1879-1887.

     The stock is designed to fit into grooves on the back of the revolver’s grip, with a claw going around the bottom of the grip. The stock is otherwise made from Circassian Walnut and design-wise, similar to the stock that was available for Model #3 for a short time.  The stock has a black hard rubber textured butt plate. The rear sight attaches to the front of the stock, and is a ladder-type sight on a long, folding riser.  There is no rear sight on the actual revolver.

     Today, if you find one with the stock, box, and cartridge box, keep it, you may need to make a down payment on a car someday; the RL price is greatly in excess of the T2K price.

     The figures below are for the rifle configuration, with stock, if you try to fire without one, it is one level more difficult to hit.  The stock, however, is $25 less if you don’t have one.

Taylor’s & Company Spencer Rifle

     Notes: This is a modern reproduction of the Civil War Spencer Rifle.  This reproduction is capable of firing cased blackpowder and smokeless powder rounds.  The Taylor’s & Company reproduction is built by Armi Sport in Italy, but Kenny Howell of Taylor’s & Company owns the rights to the Spencer Rifle Company name, so they actually sell the rifle.  This reproduction has an oil-finished walnut stock, and a color case-hardened receiver, with a blued barrel.  The rear sight is a Sharps type with a thick blade-type front sight.  The Taylor’s & Company reproduction shoots high at short range when using these sights; this is because the original Spencer rifle did exactly the same thing, and the reproduction is designed to mimic this behavior.  A deviation from the original is the magazine; original Spencers held seven rounds, regardless of caliber.  The statistics below are for smokeless powder rounds.
