The model 25 was mfg. between 1925 and 1929. It came with a 24" octagon barrel chambered for .22S, .22L, or .22LR, open sights, takedown, hammerless, tube magazine, plain pistol-grip stock.

It's a single shot no tube loader,it does have a hammer and it doesn't break down

Are you sure it is a model 25? The only .22 cal. Savage makes with a hammer that is not a take-down model is the Model 30G "Stevens Favorite". Has a lever action with a short schnabel forend, and 21" octagon barrel.

Yes it says westpoint 25 right on the side
Expert:  Bill replied 3 years ago.
I'm sorry for the confusion, it's a bit hard to identify it without all the identifying things about the rifle. If you can bear with me, we'll get this thing indentified and get a value on it. How long is the barrel and exactly what kind of action is it; lever action, bolt action, or slide action?
Thank you,
Bill

It's lever action,the barrel measures where the shell loads to tip is 22inches. Serial number is XXXXX
Expert:  Bill replied 3 years ago.
The Model 25 was a pump or slide action rifle. I'm thinking it was a West Point Commemorative. Savage and Stevens made many rifles together so to speak. They both made various West Point models. Savage/Stevens model Stevens Favorite No.'s 17-29, and they were lever actions. It just so happens that they were made between 1894 and 1935. It is probably a "Favorite No. 25", made in '25, in a West Point model. There are quite a few variations of different models that are not mentioned in some of these gun value books. So, I'm saying, because of all the possibilities, that it is a "Favorite " West Point model, made in 1925. Everything seems to fit to that gun, even the serial #.
The "Favorite's" values - Exc.: $350, Vgood: $225, Good: $195,
Fair: $175
