    I have one that I bought in the early '90s. Pretty much the same as the newer models but doesn't have the receiver drilled and tapped for sights or sight mounts. Also has the more desirable type of forend mount with the rails connected to a tube instead of pinned directly to the forend like some of the newer models do.
