I've had mine for about....35 years (had to stop and add it up). Standard grade, and I couldn't be happier. It was a good rifle when I was a kid, and it still is. Be careful taking them apart to clean. Slide the action STRAGHT back and in again. The ejector and pin will suffer if you don't. Happened when I was a kid, and I just recently fixed it right where the gun shop failed.
