    I don't think there is such a gun. Read the markings again.

      I take that back, there is one made in .303Savage but it's not yours, serial #'s don't jive and it's so valuable you'd have a heart attact.

        You probably have a model 99 that was manufactured in 1893. If this is the case, you gun is worth at least $600, but its probably higher, I just don't know how much higher without looking at it.

              Would you explain what my serial number calls for. I'm sure of the markings, "272038", "Savage Hi-Pressure Steel .30-30", "Savage 1893 Model", Thanks.

                The more I search the more I think you have a Marlin Model 1893 Rifle or 1893 carbine. These carry some nice prices of $2750-$350 depending on model and condition.
                Don't be confused by the Marlin name, they have been in and out of bed with Savage for some time.
                If indeed yours is a Savage, my guess would be its a Model 1899, and similar prices.

                  I forgot to add these were manufactured from 1893-1936

                    Jim, Savage did order a series of barrels from Marlin for their 1899 model, he probably has a Savage gun with a Marlin barrel on it. If this is the case he most likely has a Savage Model 1899.

                      If its a Marlin Model 1899 why does the barrel have Savage 1893 Model written on it.

                        Sawdust, I don't know what to tell ya, I have done a fair amount of research on this and the only caliber I have seen for the Savage 1893 is the 303 Savage. I was only able to find a .30-30 in the model 1899. Your gun is a Savage, it's just that your barrel may have been manufactured by Marlin. Savage only had Marlin manufacture barrels for the 1899. Hell, as far as I know, your gun barrel may have been stamped with an incorrect date and was ment to say 1899 rather than 1893.

                          The Marlin 1893 was chambered in .25-36(rifle), 30-30, .32Spl, 32-40WCLcal, or .38-55, the later four made for rifle or carbine.

                            I can't explain your barrel stamping either other than to say the basis for these rifles was a patent date of Feb. 7, 1893.

                              A gunshop owner, in the area,took one look at my "Savage model 1893" and instantly said it's a 1899.
                              He explained that Savage had trouble with the barrel stamping die clogging and not transferring the front of the 9 therefore, it looks like a 3. Sounds logical to me.
