I'd personally get the Savage with the Accutrigger over the Marlin.

+10. I have 2, one in blue and one in stainless. These are awesome rifles for the price.

That Savage 93R17 BTVS (its stainless) is one of the best 17 deals going. I've been shooting one for almost a year and still can't get over what a sweet shooter it is.

I saw them a couple weeks back at Sportmans Warehouse in Rocklin (Sacramento area) for something like $339.

I don't think I've ever seen an inaccurate 17 HMR rifle. I use a CZ 452 Varmint model.

I mounted a Mueller APV scope on mine. Very clear glass for around $130.

I know this is a really old thread but had a quick question without wanting to make a new thread regarding the same info. Anybody found that the 93R17 BTSV the thumbhole stock version of the savage has a really short length of pull. I tried one out in .22lr yesterday and given I'm not a huge guy and it seemed really short, almost youth short even for me. Just curious on your guys opinion that own any version of the savage .17's

I have a 93R17 BTVS. I'm 6' 1" with the arms of an Orangutan. I haven't noticed that the LOP seems short. I find it quite comfortable. It's one of my favorite rifles.

CZ 452 or 455. Mine is a 455 and the groups touch. amazing. CZ makes excellent rimfires and I think once you handle all the steel and pretty wood you get in a small package, you'll be impressed.

I have handled both. I really like the savage rifles better. I think that the fit and finish is better on the CZ's but the price point, accuracy, trigger, and aftermarket parts are much better for the savage. Out of the box, Savage .17hmr will usually hit 3 shots in a dime with good ammo as well.

I'm really impressed with my Savage BVSS. The CZ's are very nice, look for Marlin to make a big jump into this market soon. Heavy barrel, accu-trigger and the works.

Big jumps in what way?

The Special Military. It has the same action and barrel as the other CZ's but a Beech stock. Price is mid $3oo.

i bought a savage 93r17 with a scope for i believe 305 with dros and tax at basspro like 2 years ago. couldnt be more happy with it and love the accutrigger kind of makes it a 2 stage trigger and has a crisp and clean brake. if i ever buy another hmr rifle it will be a stainless bull from savage.

It may not be as nice as the savage rifles, but I like my little Marlin 917 VR.

If I did it all over again today, I'd get the Savage with the accutrigger. With that said, I have an earlier Marlin 917 and I dropped in a Rifle Basix trigger. It's a rabbit death machine.

I love my Savage 93R17, picked it up for $150 OTD used. After being sighted in the rifle is quite the tackdriver!
