    Does look interesting eh - I'm not big on semis or the 17hmr really, but it seems like a good bit of kit from the initial reviews.

    Wonder if they'll make a 22LR version or just keep making the old Mod.64 as well.

    I want one NOW. Only thing is cleaning will be a pain as you really need to scrub the copper out. Not easy with a pull through.

    Apparently one was here for a distributor/industry demo. I assumed it left again. Maybe we should try and order a bunch from the States?

    Just checked the Savage website, US RRP for the A17 is $475 compared with $372 for the B-Mag so you're probably right!

    Yeah I am picking $1000-1200. There will be the usual excuse about the now low NZ dollar etc.
