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.

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.
1st gun I ever shot was my mom’s savage model 24, its mine now and still one of my favorites to shoot. Glad to see savage reincarnate it

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.
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….
