There isn't one. Rimfire rifles made prior to the Gun Control Act of 1968 were not required to have unique serial numbers, and most Savage .22 rifles did not.
Before World War II, all Savage model 4 rifles were made with beautiful hand-carved walnut stocks and checkered grips. The only other gun in my collection that has such fine carving is a $1000.00 Sako. If your gun has checkering, chances are its an early issue, probably before 1940. I just found one of these beautys in my local gun shop for only $65.00! Needless to say, I pounced!
I have three pre-WWII Savage rifles (a Model 3 and two Model 5's). They all have serial numbers. Remove the takedown screw and remove the barrel/receiver from the stock. Look at the bottom of the receiver on the right side for the serial number. That's where mine are.
