If you are not familiar with it, the Savage Arms A17 is a semi-automatic rimfire rifle chambered for the 17 HMR round. Other companies have introduced semi-automatic rifles for this round, but many have had problems with getting them to function both reliably and safely. Remington, for example, had to recall all of the Model 597 rifles from the market due to safety concerns. Understandably, there were a lot of complaints about the way Remington handled that situation.

    Anybody have an A17 to install one of these on? Haven't really noticed much buzz about them, maybe just not looking in the right places.

      @MR I've seen one at Wal-Mart, but nowhere else. I honestly wonder if the disaster that was the 597 in .17HMR didn't scare folks away from the round in semi-autos.
