Hi All,

I'm a Newbee to the Forum and this is my first post. I have just bought a Savage Model 79 pump and want to disassemble it. I can't find anything on the internet and have searched here too, the problem is the search doesn't like "79" and there are over 2,000 hits on "Savage model" (79 ignored).

Can anyone guide me on disassembly - as I want to check the action parts as well as restore the woodwork - I want to shoot this gun for a good few years.

Thanks in anticipation,
Gordon

Welcome to SGW, Gordon ! ! {hs#

Here's a disassembly guide: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3Uql_5H7s-8

I hope this exploded parts diagram can further help you.

Hi Criscokid,

Many thanks, that diagram and parts list will really help. The video is great for basics. I wonder if the action is shared by other models as is often the case in manufacturing, if so do you know of any other models that would share the trigger group or bolt assembly?

Regards,
Gordon from England

IDK for sure, but IMO Savage would not bother to make different parts for various "models" of the same pattern action.

Remember, Savage has always been about producing as many whatever guns they can, as inexpensively as possible.

You can compare your bolt & trigger group to online pics of the various Savage/Stevens pump guns.

Now there is a gun from the past - I had one as my first shotgun in about 1984 - It was cheap and worn out - if you pulled the forend back before you shot the bolt came away slightly from cartridge so click.
I soon got rid of it and never found out how to take it apart - went posh and bought a Win 1400.

Hope you have some luck but the only problem now is getting spares sent over here.

Dave

Hi Dave,

I am lucky I guess, this one is fine and I am currently restoring it to better than its former glory. Admittedly hours of work but I enjoy working on guns and this one will rise from the scruffy-zone. The very blank pale furniture is now walnut patterned and True-Oiled awaiting finest wire wool finishing then polishing.

I have stripped the old bluing from the action/mag and will re-blue the mag then colour case harden the action. Then I'll cut off the choke and shoot .690 round ball with black powder through it. Oh yes, I'll rechequer it too.

So it will get a new life but will never see a pigeon or rabbit again.

I've got a mate in the States and a spares source so hopefully I can keep it running for a good while.

Regards,
Gordon

ps, I've stripped it down and got the trigger group and bolt etc out - with a bit of mechanical experience it is fairly logical to separate all the parts.
