Walmart has a bull barrel 17 caliber Savage for under $200 no iron sight but I believe I would be a great gun

I just obtained one not long ago. I can't find much of anything that I do not like about it. They have remarkable accuracy out of the box and are very easy to tinker with. For the cost they are hard to beat. You won't be sorry. I have done a lot of tinker/tuning on the trigger and am happy with the result. Mine breaks at a crisp 1 1/2 lbs. now and shoots some very small groups. Easily outshoots my RAR 17, which I liked a lot, until I picked up the Savage. The RAR is now my wifes!!! I am not a big fan of the synthetic stocks so I have a wooden one on order. Most of my shooting is off a bench and this is the most accurate of all my rimfires. You can spend a lot more on a rifle if you choose.....but I doubt you would ever regret the purchase of this one!!! Good luck...and have fun!!

One more item to note that I have found with my 93r17 that I forgot to mention: It is very torque sensitive as far as the action. I do not own a torque tool but I want one now. I have never paid a lot of attention to torque settings but I will now. In experimenting, I snugged the action screws a little and gave it a try. My groups opened up considerably and jumped over an inch high at 50 yards. In backing pressure back off....my groups returned to normal. I guess some like it loose? I guess if I was going to retain the plastic stock I would definetly have to consider a pillar/bedding job. Probably not a bad idea to do anyway!
