I am thinking about getting a T-Bolt Varmint in 17 HMR. I haven't seen much in this forum on it in 17 HMR version. So who has one and how do you like it? I thought about going with one in 22 mag, but I already have a few good shooting 22 mag rifles but only one single shot 17 HMR, so I thought I would try a T-Bolt in 17 HMR. Once again, any and all feedback is appreciated!

I sold mine. Accuracy was average at best and the trigger was below average. The advertised adjustment did not pan out. You will drop serious coin for another after market trigger. The beef is trigger weight. The break was actually remarkable, just too heavy.

Action was cool and the mags worked great. I just could not justify keeping it when Rugers, CZs, and Savages all shot better and had better triggers.

I don’t have one, heard the triggers suck bad. Think there is an aftermarket available now though. Can’t remember if it was a Jard or Riflebasix though.

Then it's two arms and a leg for us here in the U.S. ....it's around two-seventy-five to buy one. A bit too rich for most. The triggers are a lottery. One of mine was just under three lbs right out of the box, and crisp besides. Others can be worse. You never know.
