as i am not sure as to whether quality has declined on the XT series or not, i can say it hasn't on the X7 series i have been looking at for the last several years. in the beginning they were having production problems with the XT series in meeting demand for sales for them. i noticed several gun stores having problems in getting them from their distributors.
i have thought about adding a 22 magnum to the collection and the XTis just one of a few i would be looking at. the Savage M93 as mentioned is one that would be a contender as well. i have one already in 17 HMR and it's a great rifle.
