Savage's New A17 in 17 Mach 2 Coming Soon!
 
I love innovation and the 17 Mach 2!

Savage Arms will be announcing the new Savage A17 in 17 Mach 2 / 17HM2 at the NRA National Meeting this week! We had a prototype in hand for function testing. Check out the article below for more info! :D

It can be addictive, I think that I once owned 6 rifles chambered for that cartridge at one time.:o

Uhoh! What is Eric up to now?

Pa22Rimfire 04-08-2019 03:00 PM

I am a recent fan, but a fan none the less. I own one 17HM2.:)

DRob 04-08-2019 04:05 PM

can I join
 
How many HM2s do you have to own to be a fan? I have 2. One is a 10/22 carbine and the other is a Charger. I'm certainly a fan of them.

I have one, just picked up recently. I don't know if the round is inherently accurate compared to it's LR counter part but mine shoots great. When squirrel season comes around I'll be able to tell if I'll pick up another. It's not going to replace my like for the .22 LR but it's certainly something I was glad to acquire.

http://imgur.com/1V177YSI have 4...3 Savage Mark ll models and a CZ 452 in 17 Mach ll.....great rifles for small pest control around buildings
and my favorite for late season squirrel hunting after the leaves are down.

I have one left, and it's a barrel for my Sako Quad. I have always had trouble with it ejecting spent cases and with my .22 caliber barrel installed it works perfectly so I just don't use the .17M2 barrel often.

In love myself. I've two semi auto, a single shot and a bolt gun. :bthumb:

Possibly a review of the new Anschutz .17m2 ???

HUSHKABOOM 04-09-2019 02:31 PM

That would be good! And hopefully he can grab up one of the Ruger Americans from Whittakers.

nodak 04-09-2019 04:44 PM

Or a hunt report on the VQ Summit...............

armtx 04-09-2019 09:43 PM

452 American in M2...If there were more flavors of ammo, it would be all I would shoot.

Blazer037 04-12-2019 05:10 PM

I have 3 and a couple other barrels, and have sold 4 others. Big fan - just starting to really shoot them again.

Did they ever get them?

I put a MK2 FV together for my wife. Heavily modified Boyd's thumb hole stock to fit her and she likes it but it is strictly a bench gun. Too heavy. I have been looking for a light weight like a MK2 G or an RAR for myself. I have about 3K rounds on hand.

IHMSA80x80 04-13-2019 10:47 AM

I have 2 of them, it's a great little cartridge.

I'm very fond of my Anschutz 1502, but not fond of the variable accuracy with the variety of ammo I've accumulated. It all shoots minute of squirrel, but only Eley shoots tight target groups, eyeball every time groups. I would like to try another Mach2, but is low on the priority list.

Funny how every individual gun really is different. My 1502 shoots clover leafs at 50 with the new crop of CCI and Hornady 17 grainers.

Eric, Come on already. You've teased enough, now roll that beautiful bean footage. I always look forward to your hunt reports the most.

My 452 American shoots eley like it's a target rifle. Sure wish they made that again.
