picked one up few years ago. paid $190 with tax and NCIC cost. had the XX11 scope, so now have complete XX11 rifle tube fed. looks new. shoots just great even with the cheap XX11 scope. giving it to my gran-daughter. can't believe going prices, $600 to $1100.
I picked up an Anschutz version of the XXII a year ago and put a Leopold Rifleman 2x7x32 on it.. It's a beautiful rifle (and expensive) and I'm afraid to take it out squirrel hunting.
I did find a perfect use for it, though.. Used it last weekend in a CMP rimfire sporter match and managed a Silver Medal. The match is held indoors and at 50' and I had a problem at first with the scope set at 6x, it was a bit fuzzy and I couldn't adjust the eyepeice to get a clear look.. Halfway through the match I dropped it down to 4x and instantly my score got better and I could see what I was doing. My slow prone fire was a 86 out of 100 with a fuzzy picture, and after adusting I managed a 98 in the standing slow fire. Looking forward to the next match.
