    Hello All, I have a question and was needing some help. I am trying to find out when a rifle of mine was made. I have searched the web and not having very much luck. I have an old bolt action Savage Sporter .22lr that has been past down to me thru the family. I am trying to find the year my rifle was made and maybe a little history on it... Does anyone know a website or such that would have the info I am looking for? Any help would be appreciated.

    Thanks, DAVE
