Action Type: Single Action Single Shot Pistol. The cylinder holds one round and is pushed out from the left side for loading.
Markings: The left side of the barrel is marked “MODEL 101 – 22 CAL. L.R.”. The top of the barrel is marked “SAVAGE ARMS CORPORATION / CHICOPEE FALLS, MASS. U.S.A.”. The bottom of the grip frame is marked “1026”. The underside of the frame on the left side of the trigger guard is marked with a heart shaped inspection mark.
Barrel Length: 4 ¼”
Sights / Optics: The front sight is quarter round blade fixed to the top of the barrel. There rear sight is a square notch that is dovetailed into the top strap.
Stock Configuration & Condition: The grips are smooth dark hardwood with an Indian Head logo stamped into the tops of the grips. The grips have a mottled brown and black coloring. There is a small hairline surface crack on the bottom edge of the left grip and another on the bottom edge of the right. The bottom surfaces of the grips are rough under their lacquered finish from lack of surface preparation at the factory. The grips show only a few very light handling marks. The grips rate in about Very Good overall condition.
Type of Finish: The barrel, ejector rod housing and cylinder are blued steel. The alloy frame has a matte black painted finish.
Finish Originality: All Original
Bore Condition: The bore is bright with sharp rifling and no erosion.
Overall Condition: This handgun retains about 94% of its metal finish. The barrel shows a few tiny marks on the left side of the muzzle and scratches on its underside where the ejector rod button rubs. There are dings and scratches through the finish on the portion of the barrel just in front of the cylinder on the right side. There is finish loss on the front edges of the frame, the sides of the trigger guard, and the bottom edges of the grip frame. There are handling marks and drag lines in the sides of the frame, a few of which are through the finish. There is thinning on the edges of the cylinder along with a few tiny marks. The grip screw is sharp. The markings are crisp. Overall, this handgun rates in about Fine condition.
Mechanics: The action functions correctly. The pistol has a rebounding hammer. The barrel and cylinder pivot together when pushed from the left side with the hammer down to reveal the single chamber at the top of the cylinder. With the cylinder swung out, the ejector can be used to remove the fired cartridge case, and the bore is accessible for cleaning. We did not fire this handgun. As with all used firearms, a thorough cleaning may be necessary to meet your maintenance requirements.
Box, Paperwork & Accessories: None
Our Assessment: With all of the westerns on TV in the 1950’s, single action revolvers and cap guns resembling single action revolvers were all the rage. This is a single shot revolver based on what looks like a single action revolver, except in this case the cylinder does not spin. The cylinder and barrel rotate to the right side for loading/ejecting cartridges and for cleaning the bore. This Savage Model 101 pistol is in about Fine condition with a bright bore with sharp rifling. The barrel and cylinder are blued steel, but the frame is alloy, which makes this “revolver” nice and light. It should make some youngster very happy if given to them as their first gun.
