Back in July/August I wanted something I had never shot, something new and my local pawn/gun shop had a new Savage A17. I bought it put a Nikon P-Tactical Rimfire 2-7 x32 and it is slowly becoming my favorite rimfire. Total setup up I am right at $450
I did have a couple of issues at first with cycling issues. I switched to CCI A17 which says it was developed for this particular rifle and it runs great. Every once in a while I get a little hiccup but nothing that major maybe me not keeping up with cleaning.
Longest shot so far has been at about 75 yards pretty good size armadillo dead on shot. I have really gotten into varmint and pest control with this rifle the last couple of months. Honestly its been a great stress reliever and gun is so much fun to shoot. I am not the best shot by any means and my groups are getting much better or should I say consistent groups.
Just wanted to share my joy on this rifle nothing special just something that is really fun to shoot and enjoy.

Mildly OT, but how do you like the Nikon? Those things seem to be priced pretty well these days.
I am actually very happy with it, it has kept zero and haven't made any adjustments. I picked it up at Cabela's it was on sale for $89.99 the day I picked it up.
Not yet, but on my list.
