Completely agree regarding the Zephyr rifle. I didn’t give the one I handled nearly the discretion you were able to, but for a grand I expected better finishes all the way around. Years ago I bought a Savage/Anschutz 141 Sporter which is a little tack driver. It’s not as polished as an Anschutz 54 or some of the other high end rimfires, but it’s very close.. Great wood and exceptional bluing. I also have an early Winchester 69 which I refer to as my garden gun. I mostly shoot shorts or CB’s in it to reduce the noise. I’ve had this one for a long time, it’s killed raccoons, skunks, opossums, nutria, gophers, moles, starlings, squirrels, snakes, grouse, etc. etc. It’s been along on many big game hunt as a camp .22. Also very accurate for what it is - a 90 year old classic rimfire.
