When I bought my .17 HMR it was the newest hottest thing in gun sales. I really wanted the Marlin but my dealer couldn't get through Marlin's preference system to get one, unless I wanted to order a couple of lever action center fire guns at the same time.

But he could get the Savage 93R17FV in. This was pre acutrigger so I have the crummy mags and the crummy trigger. I also had to bed the action to get rid of some vertical stringing in my groups.

But now I love the rifle. Great accuracy, consistently shoots 3/4" groups at 100 yards.

For a $179 rifle with a $39.95 Tasco 6-24x scope it is a accuracy bargain.

But, the new Marlin's have an improved trigger.
