Standard configuration Savage 1907 pistol in .45 ACP made by Savage to compete against the Colt. Production limited to 288 pistols, this one is listed by serial number on page 261 in the book: “U.S” Military Automatic Pistols” by Scott Meadows, reported as issued to Troop I, 3rd Cavalry, Fort Wingate, New Mexico. After the testing, the guns were largely sold and shipped to the Tryon & Company with almost all examples refinished and resold commercially. Part of the refinish included removing most of the slide legend, leaving only “ CAL .45”. The only other marking on the gun are the “SAFE” and “FIRE” at the rear of the frame. Disassembly shows ALL MATCHING NUMBERS except for original unnumbered grips and magazine # 146.
Rare and highly desirable Savage 1907 Test Trial pistol in .45ACP, reworked by Tryon, original finish magazine #146.
Excellent Tryon rework with matte blue having sharp edge wear and slight fading. Bright original case hardening on trigger and magazine release. Comparable condition of grips with blunted checkering as photographed. Near excellent magazine. Bright bore with sharp rifling. Perfect manual mechanics. A great and historic Savage for less than half of what you would expect to pay for a comparable, original pistol. A HISTORIC INVESTMENT!
