I have one of those. Very cool little pistol. It is interesting in that it is a striker fired design, with an exposed "hammer" that is actually a cocking lever. Also neat in that it is one of the earliest pistols with a staggered box magazine.

Though it is often mistaken as a model 1905 due tot he patent date stamped on it, it is actually a model 1907, and a scaled down version of the .45 Autos Savage submitted for the 1911 army trials.

Those little savages are so neat, they look a little like the Astra 4000 Falcons..

Savage did a lot of cool advertising with those, Love the Bat Masterson & Tenderfoot ads.

I know this is a little late but the model shown is a 1917 not the earlier 1907 but still the same basic design just very minor changes.
