That was after me and my gunsmith teacher drilled and tapped it and put a scope on it though.

It had been sittin at merlins lumber for 13 months ,not any of the employes knew it was for sale till grandad asked if he could by it. It cost me 212.00 to have it reblued an full gone through. How crazy huh 11 bucks bran new

As soon as you get one you'll be hooked. I absolutely love mine and find it really bridges the gap between 22LR and 223.

.22 magnum is here to stay. It's a sweet round in a rifle and now even more effective in short-barreled handguns.

I'll go with the group. I've used both, and the .22 mag is, in my opinion, far more versatile than the .17. I've taken coyotes and groundhog at 170 with the .22 Mag, , though I seldom take a shot past 150, simply because of trajectory, and that's all the range I need for a small cartridge. Truthfully, if I want to reach out past 150, I'm skipping the .17 and going with the .222 for small game, and the .223 for somewhat larger game. Just for personal preference, I prefer the .243, if deer sized game come into the picture.

I would have to say until the keltec it was disappearing. 200 yards and under a .17 is awesome and the majority of people I know would rather have a .17 over a .22 mag. I have both but lean heavily forwards .17.
