    Stay away from semi auto .17HM2 unless you want to lose your eye sight or that or a mate standing to your right. They have a bad habit of exploding cases out the ejection port.

    The 17 cal semis like the Marlin model 717 did not have a good reputation. Avoid...

    I know of a good bolt action 17hm2 for sale if interested
    Its a wood blue marlin heavy barrel with about 500 rounds of ammunition

    As others have said stay away from the semis they have a reputation for blowing brass and taking your eye out
