Which hm2
 
So Im dying to get a hm2 and wanted one before squirrel season. 600.00 would be to much for me as that seams to be the going price for all the discontinued ones. Was patiently waiting for a yr now for the ruger american but Im starting to think that will never happen. Whats the best economical way to get in and still have a good gun? Don't hear much about the savage mark II and have assumed its cheap for a reason. Seams like there is a lot of problems with the a17 and was also woundering problem aside is it a better build than the mark II or getting simi auto is the only upgrade? Saw a used marlin, forget the model. That one looks nice but they were asking 350.00 which I think was more than they were new. Was tempted though. Id like to be under 400.00 out the door if its possible for something reliable and accurate. Any thoughts?

I'm kind of partial to my Marlin 917m2. Yes they are have been discontinued for some time, but if you can find one used, it may be a good one to pick up.
I'm not familiar with the Ruger American Rimfire. Can you change barrels on them like the 10/22? Will 10/22 barrels fit on an American? If so that may be worth looking at.
Good luck in your search.

The 917 is what I saw used for 330.00 I think. Heavy barrel. Cheap scope. Said it was almost 7 # which is really heavy unless that includes scope weight. I really worry about getting extra magazines for it. My local dealer says he can get the a17 for 329.00 plus tax. The simi auto sounds great but I worry about reliability. Whitakers was supposed to get the ruger american in a one time production and they have been saying that for over a year and they still don't have a date. I have a ruger american predator hmr that shoots well but took work to get it there. It most defiantly wasn't free floated which made some difference.

Mach II
 
Hi , I have been eyeballing a Marlin 917M2S 17 mach II locally that has an extra clip for $275.00 It has a checkered stock and looks nice in the pictures. (Stainless)
It is the heavy barrelled one and if it shoots as good as the ones I have owned, it will out shoot most of the others.
Also, I am not aware of the A17 being available in the MachII. Of course, there may be some new stuff out.
I have contacted the owner and will find out more about it.
If you are interested, and I don't get it from him, I will let you know.
I have had 3 Mach II's, over the years, and don't know if I need to try another one!

$275 is a great price for a Marlin 917M2S.

My bad weather squirrel rifle is a 917M2S that shoots groups that are nearly as good as those shot with my Anschutz 1502.

Despite owning 4 Savage Mark IIs in 17HM2, I like the Marlin 917M2 and 917M2S better than the Savages. The only thing that I don't care for on the 917M2 and 917M2S is that the magazine protrudes well below the bottom of the stock and keep it from carrying as well as rifle with flush or close to flush magazines.

SquirrelDown, I didn't know that about the A17 in MachII. I have a nephew that has the A17 in HMR and he has troubles with it at times, but it could be just him!
917M2Sfan, I guess with that name, you would be the guy who knows:)
I will possibly be able to buy that one I posted about if he still has it . I am also a Marlin fan and I am definitely a MachII fan.
I will let you guys know if it is till available etc.

Hereís my two cents .
Get you a CZ 455 in whatever caliber youíd want to play around with when itís nots hunting season . Or sell whatever Barrel comes with it .
Then buy a Whistlepig Mach2 Barrel .
From the beginning my 455\ Whistlepig combo out shot my Savage . And itís getting better every time I shoot it .
The heavy barreled Savage had close to 1000 rounds through it when I let it go for 1/3 of what I paid for it . Iím still holding a Boyds Pro Target stock that I plan on selling eventually .
And the aluminum shrouded Whistlepig barrels are light . Makes a great carry around rifle .
I was shooting average less than one inch groups yesterday when I had mine at the range . Sighted in at 50 , I was picking off shotgun shell hulls at over 100 yards . I just would put my crosshairs on top of whatever I wanted to hit .

I found a 504 in the Mach 2 at a gun show last Saturday. Like new with an extra mag for 450. I've been looking for 6 years. They are out there, you just have to be patient.

What Kirby999 said. Or have a barrel made for the Ruger Precision Rimfire 22lr model. Probably run you 3-400 for the custom barrel to be made and fitted.

I have a 16Ē Whistlepig Mach2 Barrel already .
After thinking it over and suggesting, I ordered another one, a 22Ē Mach2 Whistlepig.
Seems like the 455 barrels are all flat black . Iíd like to have a matte silver to go on my Stainless 455 CZ action.

kirby999 09-22-2019 06:50 PM

Just wanted to give an update on my order of a Whistlepig Mach 2 Barrel that I ordered yesterday.
Today I got tracking information emailed to me . Of course itíll be tomorrow before itíll actually be with the USPS , but that is fast service and shipping.
Iíll make my own thread when I receive and set it up for its first range trip .
