I know that there is a 949C series n I am holding it across my lap and I am looking for a butt stock for it mine is broken from years of it riding behind the seat of a pick up. This gun and I have shot more grouse that most men have lied about! Norm Westpoint was a trade name for Cotter & Co Hardware on guns mostly made by Savage. The Cotter & Co Model 949C is the Savage model 940.
All I know is they produced these around 1977..
