Pick the grade you want, they are very accurate in the descriptions. The drive from Galveston (at $3 and climbing a gallon) or the plane ticket plus ground transpo would more than exceed the difference of any "upgrades" you would want to make on it (eg a entire new set of furniture). Have seen several CMP rifles, don't think you can go wrong for the price.
