I was looking for a papoose 17HM2 barrel to suit my .22lr papoose. So far i have only turned up a blank and seem to be left with the only the custom made route bu that cost big bucks $$$$

Does anyone here know if marlin ever made a 17hm2 for the papoose as they mentioned it in the operating manual for the 70pss. The manual claims that the action will successfully cycle any current hm2 ammo that is sold!! So why make that claim if you don't sell the barrels


Now i suppose i should say at his point that i have never contacted marlin to make an official inquiry but i did try their website but their site is quite restricted (prob to save on man power)
