Savage started manufacturing the Savage 220 in 1937, and in 1938 they started production of the Savage 219 built on the same frame. The barrels were interchangeable and both were available as a combo package with one frame, 2 barrels. Barrels were available in .22 Hornet, .25-20, .32-20, & .30-.30. / .410, .20, .16 & .12 Gauge Receivers were case hardened and there were several stock options including cheek pad & beaver tail forearm. They were manufactured up until 1965. Early models were stamped Utica, which is were the savage factory was during that period before they moved. When Stevens merged with Savage, a lot of spare parts from the Stevens single barrel shotgun were used in the 219/220 so there are some pretty strange factory mix & match combinations of parts on some of the post-war guns. The 219 has the reputation of being a very accurate little utility rifle.
