I had a Savage before Tam did. They're interesting little guns, a "near miss" that enjoyed no small success before WW I.
They are pleasant to shoot when in good condition. An unknown Savage automatic should be carefully cleaned and inspected and, like all used autos, shot multiple times with only one cartridge in it to check function before moving on to two in the magazine, etc.
