Same here. I bought mine around 7-8 years ago, I believe. Stainless steel bull barrel with a laminate stock.

This talk of cz and accurate 17hmr is a far stretch... some of the least accurate hmrs i've been around. I have semi autos that shred the cz hmrs. Find a marlin917vs or savage I prefer the b17 over the 93s in design but the accuracy isnt the reason. I prefer heavy barrel savage and Marlins they seem better than their sporters.

I have to retract my earlier post. I misunderstood my friend about the accuracy of his CZ 17HMR. Such is email correspondence. He just sold his rifle because it was inconsistent. Now looking for a different HMR.

I owned my 93R 17GV for quite a few years. No complaints about the accuracy, no complaints at all until about a year ago. The magazine started spitting all the rounds out. Called savage customer service and told them about it. They took my serial number and sent me 2 new mags, free of charge. While waiting for the new mags, I used needle nose pliers and tightened the crimped tabs on the corners of the magazine and it's been working fine every since. Still haven't opened the 2 new mags.

Light Strikes, Spitting Magazines and poor feeding with 10 rounders unless you push up on the base. Savages have issues even though they are basically solid guns that shoot well. CZ 452s in 17hmr are wonderful shooters. If your CZ doesn't shoot 17 hmr maybe it's a newer model with interchangeable barrel or ammo related. Ruger American can be good performers and magazines are good but wood stocks are more expensive and they don't have a good extraction system that can cause problems with the 17hmr which needs the most extraction power for the rimfires. Marlins are pretty decent and would be on the top of my lust for rifles around 250 or less.

Its obvious you haven't been around the b17 series they have changed the magazine and other features.

I’m not sure where you see inaccurate CZ’s. My 455 CZs in .17HMR shoot fine. One is an American, one is the Full Stock.

Bummed to hear the newer CZs might not be as good. My CZ 453 Varmint .17HMR is the most accurate firearm I own.

+1 My 452 Varmint 17HMR is ridiculously accurate. I have yet to see another manufacturer's .17 that's even close.

I would agree that my 453 varmint is the most accurate rifle I own. Although my Marlin 917 VSF is right there with it.
