Both the model 1907 and 1915 were being manufactured in 1915, but you probably interpreted the model number as the date of manufacture. Blue Book says in 60% condition, which would be a well-used but not abused gun, should be worth $200 retail. Untouched since it left the factory, it is listed at $525.


If this pistol is a model 1907 in .32 caliber, then the above is more or less correct -- probably a bit low by now, late 2010. If it is a model 1907 in .380 caliber, then it is worth maybe another $100-200, depending on condition. If it is a model 1915 (grip safety, shrouded hammer, usually called "hammerless") in .32 caliber then you can add a few hundred dollars more; only about 6,500 were made. If it is a model 1915 in .380 add another few hundred dollars; only about 3,500 were made. .380 model 1915s in very good (but not pristine) condition typically sell for over $1,000; pistols looking like they just left the factory, especially if in the original box, are usually over $2,000.

The model 1907 was made 1908-1920 in .32 caliber (in about 14 versions), and 1913-1920 in .380 (in about 6 versions). The model 1915 was made 1915-1916 in .32 caliber (1 version), and 1915-1917 in .380 (1 version).

Savage made three .32 ACP automatic pistols: model 1907, made 1908-1920 model 1915, made 1915-1916 model 1917, made 1920-1926 These were also made in .380. You should be able to find photos of each one on the internet -- they are easy to tell apart, especially by looking at the shape of the pistol and the grip. It is not uncommon to find references to other Savage automatics, such as the model 1904, model 1905, model 1908, model 1909, model 1910, etc -- these are mis-identifications of one of the above three models, usually a model 1907, sometimes a model 1915, and occasionally a model 1917.

"Pistol" is used to refer to revolvers, semi-automatics, or muzzle-loading/cap-&-ball handguns. Savage has made several types of pistols over the years, including semi-automatic and single shot pistols. Savage continues to make the "Striker" single shot bolt-action hunting / target pistol. If you are referring to Savage's famous semi-automatic pistols made in the early 20th century, they were made as follows: model 1907, .32 caliber -- 1908-1920 model 1907, .380 caliber -- 1913-1920 model 1915, .32 caliber -- 1915-1916 (the "hammerless" model) model 1915, .380 caliber -- 1915-1917 (the "hammerless" model) model 1917, .32 caliber -- 1920-1926 (replaced the model 1907) model 1917, .380 caliber -- 1920-1928 (replaced themodel 1907) Savage also made prototype .45 and .25 semi-automatics during this period, but these never entered production. In the 1960s, Savage made single shot "western" .22 pistol (the model 101) that looked like a revolver; this was discontinued about 1968.

The serial number on all Savage automatic pistols (model 1907, model 1915, and model 1917, all in .32 and .380) will be found just under the barrel at the front edge of the frame. Early model 1907 pistols will have the s/n on the bottom of the frame, while later model 1907 and all other models will have the s/n on the front of the frame. All .380 Savage pistols will start or end with the letter "B" -- the first few hundred (all are model 1907 pistols) start with "B," while all the rest end with "B." It is not uncommon for the "B" to be misread as an "8." FYI, the "hammerless" model 1915 is the rarest production Savage automatic pistol, and the .380 model 1915 is the rarer of these. About 6500 .32 model 1915 pistols were made in 1915-1916 (approx s/n 130000 - 136500) and about 3900 .380 model 1915 pistols were made in 1915-1917 (approx s/n 10000B - 13900B).

Colt has never made a 45/410 pistol

The stevens Model 35 offhand shotgun(even though it is listed as a pistol) was made during the years 1923-1935 in .410 gauge.I do not have a model production breakdown by years with serial numbers though.Maybe savage/stevens might have more info at the savage arms web site?It would be worth a try.

No such model made by Browning.

Savage hasn't made too many pistols. There are only 3 listed in the Blue Book that were available in .32 caliber: Models 1907, 1915, and 1917. They are all pretty similar. The one (1915) with no visible cocking piece is worth $200 and the others $100 in 60% condition. In 95% the Book says $200, $375, and $175. However, if it has a factory nickel, silver or gold finish it will bring a large premium and if it has pearl grips, they could be worth more than the rest of the gun.

Try gun shows; a gun smith might be able to make one.update:There is no model 1905 Savage automatic pistol. Savage made three production automatic pistols, all in both .32 and .380, the model 1907 (made 1908-1920), the model 1915 (made 1915-1917), and the model 1917 (made 1920-1928). All of these have the date "21 November 1905" (in some form) stamped on th slide. This is the date that Elbert Searle was awarded his patent for the pistol design which was the basis for the Savage automatics, and has no connection to the model or date of manufacture.Over the years, Savage used two versions of the different firing pin in these pistols, but they are interchangable. You can get them from dealers in firearms parts that carry Savage parts (or, of course, always have one made).Two online sources (there are more): as of late 2009 the firing pins are available for about $25 from Numrich( - look under models 1904, 1907, 1908, 1910 and 1917 and for about $20 from Bob's Gun Shop( - look under Savage 1904-1907 and Savage 1917. (Yes, the models these dealers list are incorrect -- Numrich's model 1904 and 1908 are actually model 1907s, and their model 1910 includes parts for both the model 1907 and model 1915; Bob's model 1904-1907 is actually a model 1907 and model 1915.)Parts for these pistols are sometimes available on GunBroker and AuctionArms websites.

There are three models of Savage automatic pistol made in .32 (and in .380) ACP. These are the model 1907 (made 1908-1920 in .32), the model 1915 (made 1915-1916 in .32), and the model 1917 (made 1920-1926 in .32). All of these, regardless of model or date of manufacture, have the date 21 November 1905 (in some form) stamped on the top of the slide.

It has no connection with the pistol's model or date of manufacture.The serial numbers on all Savage automatic pistols, regardless of model, will be found directly under the barrel at the front edge of the frame. Early model 1907s will have the s/n on the bottom of the frame, while all other pistols will have the s/n on the front of the frame.All .32 Savage pistols use the same s/n range, regardless of model:model 1907 (1908-1920): approx s/n 1 - 229800model 1915 (1915-1916): approx s/n 130000 - 136500 (overlaps with model 1907)model 1917 (1920-1926): approx s/n 229800 - 259472 (replaces model 1907)All .380 Savage pistols use the same s/n range, regardless of model:model 1907 (1913-1920): approx B2000 - 15748B (first few hundred started with "B")model 1915 (1915-1917): approx 10000B - 13900B (overlaps with model 1907)model 1917 (1920-1928): approx 15749B - 29972B) (replaces model 1907)(On the .380 pistols, it is not uncommon to find the "B" misread as an "8".)

This pistol was made from 1979-1989. If you would like an estimate of value then you need to state the condition of the pistol from Poor to Excellent. With out that information it is not possible to give you an estimate of value.
