Savage Arms Announces the Return of the Model 42

By CTD Rob published on in News

The Savage Combination Gun is Back

The venerable Savage Model 24 has been reincarnated as the new Savage Model 42. Long hailed as the ultimate survivalist gun on online forums, fans of the old Model 24 are going to love the new and improved Model 42.

Configured with a deadly accurate .22 LR barrel over a wickedly effective .410 bore and fitted with a durable synthetic stock, the Model 42 is rugged simplicity defined. The Model 42 is the perfect companion on long walks in the woods with your pockets loaded with virtually limitless supplies of ammo. It’s also the perfect kick-around-camp gun as plinkers can shoot to their heart’s content affordably. Being the responsible company that we are, we can’t call the Model 42 a toy, but we can say without hesitation that it’s fun as hell.

    Make mine a .357 / 12g and call it “The best tractor gun for coyote”

    I’d like to see the 5.7FN over .410 also….

    Better yet shorten the .410 barrel by 1″, thread the 22 barrel upper 1/2 X 28 TPI…add a can, no water needed, bring to simmer and enjoy!

    I’d like a .22 mag over a 20 gauge. Could take deer humanely with a 20 gauge slug.

    The website says they are making it in 22 wmr/410 as well which should be very nice. If they could get it to take 45 LC as well as 410 like the circuit judge that would be one hell of a survival gun.

    I have a .22/410 with beautiful wood/case hardened action, and
    a .22/20 ga. that is ugly but shoots beautifully (lives in my truck) a .30/30 over 12 would sure fill out my set, or a .454 Casull over 20….

    @Mike
    .30/30 over 12 would be cool. I’d also like to see .22 hornet over .410, or even better, 5.7FN over .410.

    It would be nice to see other caliber/gauge combinations like the old Model 24 had. Like .223 Remington/20 Gauge or .30-30 Remington/12 Gauge. Perhaps even a radical .50 BMG/10 Gauge for those survivalist that must have the biggest. While they are at it the should make the butt stock to be able to carry either additional ammunition or other survival gear since it is a synthetic stock.

    BTW. Savage please do not allow Mossberg to help design this combo-gun because they will put rails all over it and a collapsible M4 stock for giggles a chainsaw foregrip. Thank you.

    This is good. The first long gun I ever fired was this .22/.410 over under probably around 1973. This firearm is a great basic and encompassing survival tool.
