597 17hmr with laminate stock and heavy barrel, should I sell?



Log in to see fewer ads
Like the title says, I have a 597 17hmr with laminate stock and heavy barrel. I test fired it and it works fine, but I don't really want it and I'm looking to sell it. Am I opening myself to liability? I don't feel like going through the rigmarole of sending it to Remington for a measly $250 voucher for another Remington product I don't want. If I could sell it, what is the going price for them? I haven't seen one sell for quite a while.

Another option was to return the 17 to Remington and they would install a .22WMR barrel. Not sure if they can or will still do that. Can't help on price but would probably try for around $300+ or try listing on Gunbroker.

Like HUSH recommended, call Rem and see if they will still honor their offer for barrel replacement on their dime. That or sell outright letting the buyer know its been recalled.

Mine hasn't had a kaboom yet either.

Since it has been recalled by Remington for safety concerns, I'd say that there is a lot of potential liability involved if you sell it and the buyer is ever injured. You might try selling it as a non-shooting collectible with a liability disclaimer, but that won't keep an aggressive attorney from bringing suit.
