i love the accuracy of my Savage M93r17. i bought mine about ten years ago, so it doesn't have the AccuTrigger and at the time, the only heavy barreled versions were with the synthetic stocks. riflle shot great from the beginning, but i had a problem with the LOP from the get go. it was too short and i always felt like i was shooting a youth's gun. several years ago, i decided to change the stock to a laminated one so it would be easier to add a recoil pad to change the LOP. i bought a Boyd's laminated Prairie Hunter in nutmeg. got it installed, and lo and behold! rifle fit me more likean adult rifle than a kid's gun now! changing the stock to one that fit me much better made a world of difference in the enjoyment of shooting that rifle. the stock added weight, and now it feels more solid. i also don't have to struggle to shoot it accurately now because the rifle fits me.
so i highly recommend the Savage M93 in 17 HMR, but check the LOP. i don't know if the factory laminates are longer than the synthetic stocks or not, but at the time i bought mine, there weren't many laminated versions to choose from. if you can't find one that fits you, consider buying the cheapest version and then buying a Boyd's stock for it. it would be the best $100 spent on the rifle.
