If the Ranger has a rear peep sight and hood on front, it's more collectable

If not, heck of a shooter anyway, slap a Williams FP on it and tear up some X-rings

Stevens/springfield 87a is the same as a Savage 6a. Keep it clean, keep the firing mechanism screws tight, And run 40 grain .22LR and they can be reliable. Even good 36 grain mini mags will sometimes fail to cycle the action and that is the biggest cause of miss feeds. The bolt will lock closed as well as open allowing you to shoot it like a bolt action repeater. (required for .22 long or .22 short) Long barrel and are usually VERY accurate. Scope mounting can be an issue if there isn't one already on it, but midway usa has a mount which is supposed to work. I happen to like the iron sights, which has a brass button on the front sight. Numrich has almost everything to build an entire gun. Almost.

I've got a Stevens 87B and it's an awsum shooter. It shoots Federal bulk ok but will hang up with them once in a while but it rocks with CCI mini mags.
