Default Spr/Sav. 187R

I'm hoping for some input and/or info on a Springfield/Savage mod. 187R semi-auto. It's in very good cond. witha good, clean bore. First time I've ever seen one, don't know what I'm looking at.

I have one that belonged to my grandmother. I have tinkered with it a bit, but can't seem to get it to run real reliably. They can be a but finicky. The feed system had quite a few parts and the striker is kind if heavy which makes lock time seem like an eternity.

Interesting guns but if you want a simple, affordable shooter that is tube fed I'd go with a marlin 60.

Not liking what I'm reading, after just spending a hundred bucks for it. I hope I have better luck with this one. Live and learn. Thanks c3.
