This is the 917VS I recently accuired. Sweet deal. Never thought much about getting one, ecept like so many others here have noticed, .17hmr is easier to find than .22lr. I came across this one on GB, fell in love with it, and thanks to Matt's gracious restraint (Thanks again mattusmc. lol) , it arrived safely to my FFL last week. Not knowing exactly what to expect since I had only pics, I was VERY pleased. Like new condition, no scratches in any of finish or metal, and not so much as a small ding in the wood. I mounted the scope last weekend (BSA Sweet .17 3x9x40 AO), bore sighted out my garage door to a knothole in a neighbors tree 85yds away, and waited ever so unpatiently for my oldest son to get here yesterday afternoon. 300 rounds of CCI 20grain FMJ came with gun, so we were ready to punch some holes. Wind is almost always a factor here, and we battled some gusty conditions, but still managed to get a pretty decent group @ 75yds. Absolutely love it! Hoping for a calm enough day soon, to test the accuracy of the turret settings of the BSA scope out to 300yd. We have some Winchester 17gr, and Hornady .17 grain to go with the CCI for comparison.
