Right now its just going to be the Savage B.mag and the Browning 1885, they said there was possibly going to be 3 others later this year to make a rifle but we don't know who yet. I'm going to be getting the Savage B.mag, I think that it is a awesome looking rifle. And the best part is it looks like a centerfire but at a rimfire price!!
On MidwayUSA it said the ammo was expected to be in stock February 23rd.

And here is another video on the Savage B.mag:

I must admit that would be a cool revolver!! I'm not much into handguns but that is a cool idea!!
Ruger could do the same thing with their single-six in 17HMR. I would love to see that.
Taurus is not my favorite brand. If Ruger did it, I'd be interested.
Costco should sell bullets in those bins, like walnuts. Or you could buy two five gallon buckets of bullets, shrink-wrapped together.

And here is another video on the Savage B.MAG with some good close ups:
I so can't wait to get one, is it April yet??
Is Winchester planning on making a bolt action rimfire rifle for the 17 WSM
I'm trying to figure out the lure of the 3000fps rimfire?
I have more than one .22, why not, ammo is cheap and I can hunt or plink all day out to 60 yards with a decent rifle and ammo, but why do I need a rimfire .17 that performs worse than my old .222 centerfire rifle - or a modern .223 for that matter?
For me, and I'm sure to be called wrong, this cartridge fills a very small niche - loooong range rimfire hunting and plinking. $0.30 a round isn't too far off bulk 223 at $0.50 a pop or less for UMC and .223 can be reloaded to any recipe you can imagine.
The 17 HMR and 22 Mag both make sense and sell like hotcakes. I hope I'm wrong, but this new offering, though technically advanced and a superb performer (for what it is) seems to be enjoying the benefit of "The Cult of the New" - like the 7mm WSM or the 325 WSM or the 7mm Remington Ultra Mag or the 243 WSSM or... well the list goes on. Heck - I've been holding out on the 17HMR to see if it was going to be a survivor... you can't fool around with rim-fire - anyone with an old 25 Stevens or 32rf knows you can't hand load for the little buggers!
