I'm looking to purchase a .17 HMR rifle and know little about them. Any suggestions? Price range is about 500.00 and I live in Sacto.

Thanks

Just purchased the blued version of that myself. Seems like a nice rifle so far.

I have a Ruger 77/17 which I bought from a Calgunner. I like it a lot.

Ive called around and checked my local gun stores and no one has any .17hmr guns. Where can i find one and what is the average price for one. I just want a cheap gun that i can have fun with. My ar is too expensive to shoot and i hear that the 22lr conversion needs good .22lr ammo in order to work.

I have a CZ 452 Varmint in 17HMR. I live in Sac. You are welcome to come check it out if you would like. Give me a PM.

I wouldn't say a .17 HMR is cheap. The gun itself can be cheap ($200-300). However, right now ammo is hovering around ~$10-13/50 rounds.

If you just want a cheap fun gun, find a Marlin model 60 .22 and go to town. That should set you back less than $150.

I've owned a Savage 93R17 FV in the past and I loved it. Great rifle, great trigger, and you can't beat the price. Currently, I've got a CZ 453 Varmint. I shot my friend's 453 and fell in love with the set trigger.

Just curious, what is the "single set trigger" on the 453? Is that the only difference from the 452?

CZ for the bolt.

10/22 for the auto. Very modular and can be constantly changed.

The set trigger is the only change that CZ makes between the 452 and 453. The set trigger allows the shooter to have a standard trigger(at about 2 lbs.) and a target trigger(at about 10oz.) in the same system. To activate the set trigger, one simply pushes forward on the trigger until it clicks. Great system.

That sounds pretty cool. Thanks for the info!

I have a CZ 452 and am very happy with it. I researched CZ, Savage and Marlin before my purchase and I'm glad I went with the CZ. I also took the advise of another member and bought a Mueller 8.5-25x44AO tactical scope which i am also very happy with. I know a tactical scope on a 17HMR seems lame but it's very accurate and you can't beat the price of the Mueller. I was squirrel hunting with a 22lr before the CZ and the difference is absolutely amazing, it's a great combo for keeping the squirrel population in check.

I've been reading all I can about 17hmr and 17hm2 rifles and I'm definitely leaning toward the CZ.

Hi all,

New to the forum, a long time lurker who just joined today. I have had a great interest in the .17HMR for a while. Since I just sold my Sig P226R, I had a pile of 'gun' cash that needed to be spent. So I ordered and got....for a REALLY great price...a new Anschutz 1517 MPR with SS barrel. I have wanted one for quite a long time and everything just fell into place. I'll be using it for fun..teaching the grandkids how to shoot and maybe some lightweight target competitions.

I will be able to pick it up on Monday and will post up some photos after that. After so many years as an LEO here in commie land, owning as many guns as I do and having access to the special weapons that I do....still a 10-day wait....the most stupid law ever...sorry...first post and already off-topic...

Anyway, I wanted to say hi...

Take care,

JJ
