112 left as of 4:15pm Central on 09/24/2019.

Get 'em while they're hot!

109 left. Been waiting for a year for this. If anyone wants to know its the predator version that they also sold at one time in hmr. Slight bull barrel but not heavy. Short and easy to maneuver. My HMR bought couple yrs ago was not free floated as advertised but was easily fixed and shot better after that. Really didn't put a lot of time behind it as it was alittle to much for squirrel but it did 1 1/4" at 100 yrds from what I recall. Five to 10 shot groups. Maybe not the best but that included most fliers so majority was better than that. Cant wait.

The picture and description doesn’t match . Which one is it . I like the Predator model in the picture with threaded barrel , but the description says it comes with sights and two stock modules. That sounds like a compact .

I asked and they told me it was the predator version as shown in pic. My hmr had no sights and only the long stock module. I bought a short module later as it was hard to shoot with a winter jacket on. Im 5'8". Will probably swipe it and put it on this.

Also if it matters to anyone I just measured my hmr and not sure where you officially measure a barrel but mine is 17" from cap to receiver. Also it does have the machined in rimfire groves for a scope but hen they mounted a rail to that as shown in pics. I assume Im getting whats in pics and it will match my hmr but if any of this matters you might want to ask. The barrel is threaded but does me no good in my state . Its 3/4" at the tip. Tis is all info Im getting off my hmr not the hm2 that they are selling to be clear.

I've got several new take-offs with the short LOP and low comb that I'm never going to use. If one of them will work for you, I can probably send it to you via USPS for under $15.

weight....

Saw online that the .22LR version was moderately light...about 5.7#. if i recall correctly....for those of you with the .22LR version, that sound about right?

i'm liking the idea more, i know the .17 might weigh an oz or 2 more, but still quite handy.

TY. Will keep in mind. Want to get it and make sure it shoots. Not sue if the low comb will work or not, its a scope only gun.

btw if it matters. You might ask the guy if its free floated. My hmr was not and I had to sand the stock. I don't think I was the only one. If thats all I have to do it won't be the worst thing.
