Utica, N.Y., was once home to the Savage Arms Company, whose lever-action rifles, beginning with the Model 1895, have become the stuff of legend. Savage Arms moved operations several times over the years, first to Chicopee Falls, Mass., and later to its current home in Westfield, Mass.

To mark production of the one-millionth Savage Model 1899 rifle, on March 22, 1960, this very special milestone rifle was presented to the National Rifle Association of America. Inlaid on one side with a gold Savage Arms Indian logo, and on the opposite receiver face with the nra logo, this .300 Savage-chambered rifle is one of the most embellished arms ever crafted by Savage Arms. Proudly displayed for decades at the NRA National Firearms Museum in Fairfax, va., in 2013 this deluxe Model 99 began to grace the galleries of the newly opened NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Mo.

Interested in engraved arms? Visit either of the two nra museums—the NRA National Firearms Museum at NRA Headquarters in Fairfax, Va., or our new NRA National Sporting Arms Museum at Bass Pro Shops in Springfield, Mo. Both locations include a timeline of American arms from the first colonists through modern day, with exemplary handguns, rifles and shotguns available for viewing seven days a week. Admission is free to both museums (donations gratefully accepted), and offers an unforgettable visitor experience. For more details, check out the museum website at www.nramuseum.com, call (703) 267-1600 or email n[email protected]
