I will be very interested in the accuracy. We have a lot of problems achieving good accuracy in the 22LR version and that is with match ammo which does not exist with the HMR.

I have the 22 & with Aquila SV, Geco Rifle & CCI Std Vel I'm shooting golf balls, 2" & 3" steel swingers at 300 yards. My buddy is shooting golf balls pretty consistantly at 200 yards if the wind is steady or low using Blazers. His scope doesn't go up to 300 yards. Maybe it's you're using match ammo in a standard chamber

I saw that add through rural king but I had an order in for a ruger revolver in November. After waiting for it to ship for three and a half weeks I finally cancelled my order and bought elsewhere. To my surprise I did see one here at a gun show on 1/9. It was 399

The gun came in a few days ago, havenít shot it yet. I did get to clean it and add some loc tite to the screws for the scope rail, and mount a scope.
This is the second gun I have ordered from RKguns, both took about two weeks to get to my local RK.

Please post your review after you have a chance to shoot it!

Picked one up yesterday

Local Murdoch's had them on sale for $399.99 OTD. I couldn't resist.

Now I'm trying to pick between Mueller APV 6-18X44 AO or BSA Sweet 17 6-18x40.

This will be my new gopher (ground squirrel) gun this spring! My Savage 93R17 will be feeling neglected.

My RPR17 came home with me this afternoon.

One of these nights it'll get taken down and cleaned and oiled.


It looks pretty good sitting beside the RPR22.

Do the magazines rock back and forth like they do in the 22lr RPR
