Ruger 17 HMR?

A local shop has one of the neat guns. Its in 80% shape or so. Some speckles of rust on the barrel, missing the mag and front sight insert.

I would prefer to have the 96/22 but is the $290 OTD price their askng for to much? I havent ever seen a 17 version before. Thanks for your help.

Depending on the model, a used Ruger 77/17 is bringing $400 and up on the action sites. If the rings are included, an offer of $250 would be decent.

Got it for less than the asking price and he even threw in a box of ammo. Mag came with it also so only missing the front sight.

Congrats on the new toy. I've had mine for about 5 years now, and I've popped prairie dogs at 250 yds with it. Pretty good spat.

Triggers on them are pretty par w/ Rugers. Look up Todd at TTshooter and he can do the trigger for you. They're tuffer than the 10/22's to work on.

I also floated my barrel and bedded the reciever. I like it pretty well.

Enjoy.
