Savage Model 101 Single Shot .22 LR Pistol, 4.25″

Savage Model 101 Single Shot .22 LR Pistol, 4.25″

You are considering a vintage Savage Arms Model 101 Single Shot Pistol. Chambered in .22 LR with a 4.25″ barrel. This pistol features a blued barrel, black alloy frame, and wood grips that sport the Savage Indian logo. The condition is considered Very Good; the metalwork retains above 80% of the original finish, showing typical wear with more extensive finish wear on the high points. The wood grip panels are above 75%, with a nice grain pattern, typical wear, and shallow dings. The bore is bright and shiny with defined rifling and no apparent fouling or pitting.

The Model 101 is a unique and somewhat niche firearm in Savage Arms’ lineup. First introduced in the 1960s, the Model 101 looks like a traditional single-action revolver. However, looks can be deceiving. It isn’t a revolver at all but rather a single-shot pistol.

  • Design and Function: Instead of a revolving cylinder, it has a swinging chamber that can be loaded with a single .22 caliber LR cartridge. The “cylinder” is actually a dummy and is just for show to give it that classic “cowboy” revolver appearance.
  • Operation: To load the Model 101, a user opens the loading gate and tips the “cylinder” out to the side, similar to a break-action shotgun. This exposes the single chamber where the cartridge can be loaded. After firing, the expended shell casing is manually removed with the use of the ejector rod.
  • Popularity: The Model 101 was not a major commercial success for Savage Arms, but its unique design and operation make it a point of interest for firearms collectors and enthusiasts.
