who has one, or shot one? im looking at a XT-17. wonder if it is worth a flip? i like the accutrigger on savages. just wondering how this stacks up...
Joe, I have a Marlin 917V and it is a flat out shooter. I need to add a Rifle Basix trigger in the near future......after that I should have not problem getting excellent groups at 100 yards.......already gettin .75" to .5" groups. I don't know about the newer Rugers, but my experience with them in the past was they had super heavy triggers, especially the ones with the 3 position safety and not the tang safety (older tang safety models were shooters).......that may have changed though.Joe S. said:yea thanks! thats a nice looking rifle ya got there!
trying to decide between this and the ruer 77/17. for price, the marlin definately wins, but something about that ruger!
Hrm...would have killed to see if you could easily switch a T-900 or older 25M/700/800 trigger out with the Pro-Fire...Joe S. said:I had a 917 as well and sold it as I had built it into a heavy rifle and it wasn't fun to carry hunting anymore.
I've got a 77 mark 2 in 308 and the trigger is good on it.
I'm not to worried about a heavy trigger as it is fixable if that's the only complaint I have. I love the flush fitting mag and 9 rounds is a plus too. I would prefer the heavy barrel but for a hunter it definately would be lighter with the sporter barrel. Just weighing my options. I think either one would make me happy as I've had both brands and liked em both
Thank you I am a visual learner. One look and everyone can say "Ooooh! Yeah, that'll never work." But ten pages of descriptions would only make it more difficult to understand, methinks.Thanks JetBlack for the prompt, clear explanation.
