Anyone shoot a Marlin lever action in .17hmr? Talked to my cousin, long distance, and he said that he was trucking one around his farm for coyotes and such. Haven't seen one around here in the gun stores. I'm surprised that he can shoot coyotes with one, but he's an excellent shot.
A marlin lever gun in 17hmr?
I think Henry builds the 17s in levers.

If ya ain't lookin' for a 'conventional' lever action, think Ruger is still buildin' the 96 in 17HMR??

He may be talking about the winney 9417. I have one 22" bbl. pistol grip stock. Not made any more. purchased mind in 2004.
You're right. Talked to Doyle and he said that it was a Winchester. Now disappointed. I'd rather have a Marlin 39 or 1894 in .17hmr. Maybe next year. Just tried a Savage 93 in .17hmr and it had unreal accuracy. Just not a winchester fan, though I do own six of them.
No such thing as an 1894 in 17hmr either. There is an 1894 in 22 mag though.Originally Posted by wleoff
You think the savage is accurate? Try out a 917vt. I make little 3 shot ragged holes all the time. I can put 3 in the same hole, or pretty damned close. My buddies savage just cant compare at longer distances.
