I wound up selling the rifle.....it had a great trigger for a Walmart gun.
For whatever reason the 'Youth Ranger' was a much nicer finished rifle than the standard 'Ranger'. It was basically an XTR Featherweight with sights (nice ones) in a plain hardwood youth stock. Mine has great mirror finish bluing, floor plate, and the stock fitment/finish is excellent. Really, the only reason I haven't upgraded to an adult stock. My son will use it for his first deer rifle in about 4 years.
