Hello gentlemen (and you too Mars),
My father-in-law got the "Steal-of-a-lifetime" the other day. He bought a Savage Model 755A for $10 at a garage sale. Yup, you read correctly, $10! I had never heard of the 755 before, but it is very similar to the Auto-5 in basic operation, however the internal parts seem to be much more complicated. If anyone has a history on the 755 I would love to hear it.
Anyway, it is missing the lifter assembly and a few screws which we just ordered from Numrich. However, it is in pretty good shape.
Serial number is 585XXX. 12 gauge, 28", 2 3/4". Can someone give me an approximate date of manufacture and a value layout?
