Pictures to bottom are of a 12-gauge SPE-Grade Skeet & Upland Game Gun, serial number 34891. It had been sent to National Sportsman for review, and was returned to Savage on Christmas Eve 1936. It was subsequently shipped in 1937 on invoice. It has a straight grip, Fox-Kautzky Single Selective trigger, recoil pad, twin ivory beads, and beavertail forearm. The leather-faced Jostam Anti-Flinch pad was badly deteriorated and it has been replaced with a brick red Silvers Pad. Dave has never found a review of the SP-/SPE-Grade Skeet Upland Game Gun in National Sportsman.
