    Anyone shooting a Marlin Model 917M2 Cal .17 MACH2 Rifle??

    Is there anyone out there shooting a Marlin Model 917M2 Cal .17 MACH2 rifle?
    What sort of accuracy are you getting at 100m?

    Mine shot about an inch at 100yds with old ammo, new hornady ammo wasn't the best, 3 inch from memory, I used a pen spring to lighten the trigger pull. Don't use it a hell of a lot. Hard to get a variety of options to try. I'd reccomend 22lr, 17hmr or 22 mag due to ammo issue. Cheers

    Yea, there seems to be plenty of ammo about at the moment for the 17HM2. I see Out Door Supplies are advertising the Marlin for $600.

    My experience with the round has been around that 3" @100 as well so was interested to see if it was just my rifle or more to do with the inherent accuracy of the round?
