Thanks, Olympus. I did go to Rimfire Central. Didn't sign up, but read a lot of stuff.

Today I got to fingerbang, (not shoot) several guns I've heard about.
1. Browning T-Bolt. Really cool action. I have heard good things about the mag that goes with this gun. But, it seemed a little off in the feel of it. And that gold trigger is hideous! For the money they apparently get for them, I'll pass.
2. CZ 455. This model was the trainer with that awful tan stock. Not sure why the stock makes it worth 2x the price of the other 455's? But the 455 platform seems decent. Actually, there were a couple of them, mostly the LUX models, and the full stock models. I did notice that some of them had rough-feeling bolts. Some of the were nice. The triggers were very good, I thought. General finish was very nice.
3. CZ 452, used. 17HM2, varmint, threaded barrel, wood stock. Seemed slightly used if at all. VERY impressed with the trigger!! Holy crap! Overall this gun was super nice, and, if it was a 17HMR instead, it would have gone home with me.
4. Bigshrek sent me a PM about the marlin line, including a link to them. Also nice-looking guns, for a lot less money, I'm guessing. As everyone knows, he speaks very highly of them......

So many choices, I can't decide........

Marlins are a good rifle if your talking a 917. I think its the correct model. Very accurate but you might find the trigger a little heavy. Rifle basic has a fix for that.The CZ-452 17m2 another very accurate round only 400fps slower than a HMR. The CZ-trainer is a burch stock? but some were walnut we usually open a couple of boxes to find nice wood as for bolt stiffness they loosen and smooth up pretty quick with use I have used a lapping compound and lap it in to speed up the process.There is a sticky at rimfire shooter site on how to do that. Good luck in your search.

I have the marlin 917v & it's my favorite gun. This past weekend I put 6 shots in a dime @ 50 yds.

I have been told by bigshrek that the 917 have been replaced by the XT series, I think it was. The CZ trainer I was looking at, (if it was that), had a hideous ?plastic? stock on it. It looks weird, and feels weird.
