    I have one and it is fun to shoot. I also have the High Standard version gill gun, very similar to the Stevens 87/Savage 6.

    I am not finding anything that you are referring to about atf telling savage to stop making those rifles? What are you talking about?

    I own the exact rifle. Stevens/Savage 87a absolute favorite .22 I own. Very versatile with the ability to shoot .22lr, .22l, and shorts. To fire the shorts you are supposed to manually operate the bolt by hand to chamber new round then locking it to fire.

    I picked up a a Savage 187 and a Western field rebranded version of the 87, both slightly different versions of the same gun. Been looking for one for awhile and finally glad I got two of them at an auction.

    You didn’t show us the automatic mode as its say on the gun 22 L as auto??

    I’ve got a Stevens 87D that used to burst fire sometimes. Replaced trigger assembly and fixed it. Guess the old plungers were worn down.

    Mine looks like that but it’s a sav mod 6A

    Just looked at one yesterday at a local pawn shop for $150. Think I’m going to go get it tomorrow.

    i have the same gun that i picked up at a gun show i gave 250 for mine. its was a steep price but im a sucker for the old school 22 rifles. another great 22 is the Remington 550-1 it shoots S,L,,and LR. it has a floating chamber so it can shoot shorts in semi auto as well. both are great guns. and you really can’t beat the old school Marlin model 60s. the older ones get 18+1. but it only shoots LR

    Very nice rifle! Love old 22’s. I inherited my great uncle’s Winchester 63 when I was a high schooler back in the 80’s. Still have it, and it will go to my son someday. True about the ATF btw😡

    I just got this same gun a couple days ago for $50 bucks,just wondering on how do u turn it in to a automatic,im not going to do it no way in hell just asking for a friend.

  14. Jacob Hartness on November 9, 2021 at 10:19 pm

    Just bought one today at a pawn shop and it cleaned up very well. I shot it for the first time and was amazed by it

  15. 1962 impaula on November 9, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    I just got an 87D. What are the differences?

  16. William McCaslin on November 9, 2021 at 10:22 pm

    She sure is gorgeous, an its hard to beat old school wood an steel, an you are correct, back in the day, they were all considered " Squirrel Guns" an many a boy would take to the woods with one. An BTW, you got a steal on that, thx for the vid

  17. Bob Albeck on November 9, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    I have one of these inherited from my father in law. The stock doesn’t have the black band on the far end. All wood grain.

  18. Night Cat on November 9, 2021 at 10:29 pm

    Gotta love a 22lr

  19. Amaan Khan on November 9, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    My grandfather owns one of these and when i shot it idk how to make it so it doesnt jam

  20. Raul Duke on November 9, 2021 at 10:35 pm

    This was my first gun that I learned how to shoot with. My grandpa bought it new in the 50s or 60s. Its a pre-64. I learned how to tear it down completely and reassemble with no internet or manual (using a Polaroid camera) before I was 13. This thing still functions flawlessly and will be the rifle my son learns how to shoot with. Love this rifle. Thanks for the video.

  21. Michael Colasante on November 9, 2021 at 10:36 pm

    I was just given this gun yesterday because the owner had passed years ago and it was in storage. It’s in mint shape. I found this video because I needed to know the features it had and some background on it because I did not get a manual with it. Thanks so much for posting this. It helped a lot.

  22. I.S.C motorsports on November 9, 2021 at 10:37 pm

    I just picked up one of these from a pawn shop a few weeks back for a hundred bucks and have been trying to learn the history behind this gun. Thanks for the video learned alot from it .

  23. Dakattack98 on November 9, 2021 at 10:39 pm

    I picked up a Springfield 87a at a local gun shop for 90 bucks. It needed a little bit of work and I added a side mount scope for it and the thing is a tachp driver. It will shoot cb.’s but but you have to be careful about the bullet getting stuck in the bore

  24. Steve Tavares on November 9, 2021 at 10:42 pm

    Interesting on how the bolt stays back when the trigger is held and bolt releases when trigger is released.

  25. Austin Nichols on November 9, 2021 at 10:43 pm

    Obviously we like same things. I randomly looked up Stevens 87 a . Your video was the first. Great rifle, love mine. It looks identical to yours . Wow. My g pa gave me mine

  26. robert grotto on November 9, 2021 at 10:44 pm

    I have the Sears Ranger 101.16 version. From 1943. My wife was browsing an antique store and it was on the wall behind the counter. In relatively good condition. It was missing the front hood and sight. I found them at Numich parts. Came with hood and 3 sight insets. Post, cross and open. I also found a Weaver scope from around the time period with the side mount bracket. Not a great scope but looks good. LOL. I think it’s more accurate with out it. The rear manual site can swivel for some windage. Cool little plinker.

  27. J F on November 9, 2021 at 10:51 pm

    Great overview. I have one similar to yours. Mine is not working properly. Basically after a round is fired the extractors catch the rim of the spent casing and pull it back however the spent casing does not eject. Then of course a jam occurs because it is trying to feed a fresh cartridge while the extractors are still gripping the shell of the round that was just fired. Any ideas? It does this whether I operate in semi-auto or bolt action. Thanks!
