That's what I have and I love it. I haven't handled anything other than mine, so I can't compare it with the others. However, the machining is beautiful with no marks anywhere. It also shoots very well. I got a 4 inch group at 100 yards using bulk Golden Tiger FMJ ammo. That was with irons sights also. Far as I know, the barrel is NOT chrome lined. However, 95% of all rifles in this country don't have chrome lined barrels. Clean it like it should be cleaned anyway, and it'll be fine.
