It has the BDL type floorplate..........if it has the 'blind box' type magazine, should you experience a cartridge jam, you would have to lift the entire barreled action out to clear. My experiences with the 221FB. l.r.
I was going to buy one recently and did a lot of researching prices. Seems the .17 Rem and the 221 Fireball were selling for a lot less than more popular calibers like the .204, .223 and 22-250. I really liked the little rifles, but ended up getting a Remington Model 7 in .204 for a lot less than the Light Varmint was. I'll use what I saved and put a better scope on it. If you can't see what you're shooting at, you aint gonna hit it!
