I liked it too, but as an AK guy I did take issue with that "never cleaned it" line - I've only had mine 15 or 20 years, and I have cleaned it, once that I remember for sure, maybe even twice.

Actually, that works for a lot of the old bolt rifles.  I love 'em all!  (And they all do what they were designed to do, EVERY TIME!)

And that would be pretty important for someone of your abilities,...uh, talents,...uh,curse ::)

But seriously, you guys with your new fangled bolt action repeaters just waste too much ammunition. Give me a falling block, rolling block, or a trapdoor! Oops! I guess I've broke one those! But it sure was fun having an auto-ejecting single shot for a little while.  ;D

Winchester used to make one of those in 22 LR, on purpose no less. ::)

Bought one of those at an estate sale once, thought it was weird so I gave to a cousin who had a young boy & no .22 - the boy thought it was the coolest thing ever.
