Blinder, what are the prices of second hand guns around your area or on gunbroker. My vote is for a Sako Quad, but I'm biased of course.

And once you have fired a gun it's second hand anyway.

I have a Ruger American that shoots very impressively, great magazine, and the aluminum block in stock ensures solid, consistent contact with receiver. I also like the deep black blueing on barrel. Trigger is dang nice out of the box, but itís easy to change springs and make reeeeeal nice.

SWFA has many types of .17hmr on sale for the cheapest I've seen in 8 years.
Most are in the low to mid $7.00 range.

Shipping is only $9.99.

Thanks to tbates66 for the heads up.

If new then savage b17 heavy barrels I prefer they are better than cz in the accuracy department. Older savages, marlin,or nef are other suggestions but they seen to bring as much as new

For cheap accuracy, I can't think of anything that beats a used Savage, but then again I'm not familiar with the Marlins outside the M60....

I miss the 917v Marlin I had back till 2005ish. 3/4" groups at 100 yards with hornady vmax 17gr. CCI tnt shot just as well, Federal 20gr solids were a bit behind, but had penetration goals LOL.

Woodchucks at 120 yards were DRT with a good headshot.

I would not rule out Savage either. I'd get a bull barrel, though. Just my personal preference, looks better, to me.

Research the Rossi RB17. I own several of RS22 and one RB22 rifles...and all of them are acceptably reliable and accurate. I've also modified 2 RS22s using the ProMag Tactical Folding Stock and one of those has the MCARBO spring modification.

Bud's has them for $153.00...but you can find them cheaper on GunBroker.com, Shooting Surplus, Classic Firearms, etc. TSS Warehouse has 4 different rifle stock options right now.

Good luck.

I just ran the numbers on the Rossi RB17 through Gallery of Guns and it came to $155 otd. That is about as cheap as you will get for a new gun.

I have a Rossi RS 22, thatís the $99 semi auto. Itís accurate, and is essentially a Mossberg Plinkster in new clothes.

I would definitely consider looking at the Rossi .17 bolt gun, even though I have two CZ 17ís.

You mentioned a handgun as well. Chiappa makes a single action revolver...and mine sucks. The hand and all internal bits are very thin and will not withstand much abuse, or maybe even much use. It is easy to lock it up, Iím not even sure how I do it, but it happens. End up removing the cylinder to unbind things. It shoots OK, but not what Iíd call ďaccuratelyĒ. But then, I have a friend with a scoped Taurus tracker that is also not accurate at 10 yards, but shoots well at 50....so maybe itís a thing with 17 at 10 yards?
