Complete quality HMR package!
Savage laminate thumbhole stocked .17HMR in lovely condition complete with Sirocco Moderator, slings, Hawke Endurance (new and with box) 8 x 56 30mm IR scope (LR Illuminated dot Ret). Bipod not included.
Has fired maybe 1000 rounds from new so loads of life left (this is nothing to one of these). One or two very minor scuffs on stock from cabinet otherwise in superb condition. Some work done on stock to improve fit from new and increase floated clearance. This has resulted in a very accurate rifle (sub MOA) which is deadly on rabbits and crows to 150yds. This has to be one of the best HMRs available and is a real tack driver using Remington Premier boat tail 17g cartridges. It'll shoot 1.5 to 2cm groups at 100m (sub moa).
Rifle has always been kept clean, and barrel cleaned through (fouling removed) after use with mod removed for storage. Copper build up removed every 100 rounds or so using M-Pro7. This regime is what it likes as any build up of copper fouling past 100 rounds in such a small calibre will (and does) affect accuracy as does over-cleaning! (tell-tale symptoms on these are grouping starts to deteriorate until barrel gets warmed up with 5 to 10 shots....remove the copper and no fouling shots really needed and grouping goes back to being bob-on).
Full stainless steel all weather action and 16 inch varmint heavy barrel. Lovely crisp adjustable 2 stage Accutrigger.
5 shot stainless magazine and all paperwork present. Only selling as replacing with a .223 centrefire.
New cost was £610 rifle; £190 scope; £30 mounts; £24 sling; £49 moderator giving a total outfit cost of £903.
Looking for £599 with scope, or £420 minus scope but with moderator and sling. Can arrange for RFD transfer at the buyer's cost but would much prefer face to face, collection from Gloucestershire.
