    I can't answer but one of your questions. Yes you can shoot 38 special in any firearm chambered for 357 Mag. It might have a slightly different point of impact that you will need to adjust the sights.

    wcwireman.......I have the exact same rifle that you describe. Got it about the time you got yours...about 35 or so years ago. Love the gun! Put a scope on it and used it hunting in WV for years. Shot many a .38 out of it, wadcutters, +p's and the like. Since it is rated for .357 it can shoot any .38. Come to find out that it is the rarest of the Savage Model 24V's so it sells for a bit of a premium compared to the others (.22/.223 and the like). Value depends on condition but I would not sell mine for any less than $350 even in this down market. I have seen used Model 24's going for @$200 or so. Savage came out with them in 1971 and only offered the .357 for a short time. The Model 24 O/U was discontinued in 1989. Hope this helps.

    Check the auctions, they go crazy sometimes. But i'd give you xxx for it..........seriously though, the ones i've sold went higher than i thought they would have. Excellent gun however. I'd keep it if i were you. Wish i had kept mine. A good peep sight on it is most excellent for them.

    Boy what a difference 5 years makes in terms of selling prices / values of the Savage 24s...ESPECIALLY the .357 Model 24V. I would LOVE to buy one for $300 today!
