got the Savage M93 without the Accutrigger, but have the Rifle Basix trigger sear. mounted the action in a Boyd's nutmeg laminated stock and has a BSA Sweet 17 6-18x40 scope. very, very accurate out to about 200 yards.

downfall of the 17HMR is a windy day. anything over about a 5mph wind, hang it up and find something else to shoot or do!

I have the same rifle in a blue finish, love it 100 yards under 1 MOA the only thing that I don't like is the mag system on it other then I love it. I use it for everything from muskrat to crows.

another point i will make for the Savage, is it can be bought at a reasonable price. i think i paid like $230 for mine with a scope mounted on it about 7-8 years ago. this was before they offered the Accutrigger on the rimfires. mine did have the synthetic stock, but i added the Boyd's laminate, as they too were not available yet back when i purchased mine.

another thing is, you will need to purchase a dedicated 17 caliber cleaning rod as most cleaning rods in the kits are bigger than the bore of the 17. another point, try out several different types of ammo to see which one is the most accurate in yours.

What Axxe said about the cleaning rod. And get bore brushes and jags when you can find them. You CAN do the lenghth of Weed Whacker line with a melted blob at one end for a pull through, and they do no need a lot of cleaning, but still....
