    • SCOPES CAN BE USED ON A MDL 24 FOR SLUGSRandy D, Fri Nov 30 4:15am
      I shot one with a slug for many years, it was a hole puncher and great in shotgun only seasons. Set the eye relief accordingly, and use common sense. Shoot away!

        My dad used a 2.5X scope to shoot turtles in his duck pond years ago. My old .22 / .410 got a new lease on life and .22 was very accurate.

                  Please stop trying to turn every post you make into a "For Sale" ad for your other model 42. We're all getting tired of it.

                    So, you scammed a disabled veteran out of a valuable old 24? "i will not quit/i just bought a savage 24 made in 1951 it is new un fired,old down the street i take him to VA hospital offered it me/so... more

                  I looked all over the gun and can't find any warning about using a scope.

            Shot them from heck and back---never had a problem just cause it's written on the barrel (or posted on the web) doesn't mean it's correct Try for yourself and decide
