Savage 24 Barrel Regulation, Regulating Barrels

Wherein we wedge some junk between the barrels of a Savage 24 C to regulate the barrels. (Click “Show More” to read further.)

I really like combination guns, and the Savage 24 is a good combination of good looks and common-man price (the Baikal is cheaper, but phew, ugly!). Also, made in the USA!

The problem is, these guns have been out of production for a long time, and they’ve all been knocking around in someone’s pickup for 30 years, and have been knocked out of regulation. Or in some cases with the later ones, were regulated badly straight from the factory!

In this video, I’ll show you my Bubba method of getting a bad one shooting both barrels closer to the point of aim (also known as “Barrel Regulation”). It’s a little funny-looking, but fully reversible, so your gun won’t lose value if you decide to sell it later on.

Savage does have a Model 42 .22LR/.410 in current production, but it’s quite ugly and the .410 is expensive to shoot. If you like combination guns, please email Savage Arms and ask them to produce the Model 42 with a 20 gauge barrel!
