I got this Remington 540X .22 caliber when I was about 10 years old for the trade of 5 squirrels. It's not been really a gun we shot all that much and still is in decent condition. The stock was done over once but not all that well. The bluing is a 9.5 but I noticed it wont let the trigger release the firing pin. Plans are to give it a thorough cleaning then doing the stock again myself. I know my dad is happy knowing I have finally took an interest in his guns and that I am doing the right thing to them..
