Noticed in Gander Mountain new sale pages, they list a Savage A 17 semi auto 17HMR. Anyone know anything about them? Is this part of the problem the early 17HMR autos had?
"The A17 is built around a delayed blowback action that ensures proper timing for the heavier pressure of the 17 HMR round"

Thanks

You can use any 17 hmr ammo you want in the A 17, the CCI stuff is just the top notch ammo out right now.

There was a review done with the gun and various ammo, some of the standard loads were 3 moa at 100 yards while the cci a17 ammo was the most accurate.

I handled one at bass pro the other day, nothing spectacular regarding the fit and finish it is nice that it comes fitted with an accutrigger that doesn't require taking the stock off.

Price is decent.

Just waiting for more data when that special action gets gummed up and seeing if it will effect cycling

Went to Academy this afternoon and looked at the A 17. Seems the clip has to "click" when it's inserted and "clicked" again it you push it harder. Counter guy said they've sold about 5 without any coming back.
Anyone know if there is a replacement clip, as the factory one is plastic

i'm waiting until the bull barrel version comes out like the B-mag one just did...

I have a HARD time believing 3 moa... every one would come back from every person I know.

We sold 2... no issues so far.

A-17 is the optimized cci load, havn't seen any real world chrono numbers

The mag looks like a BIG 10/22 mag... like JUST like it...

Mine made it back today from Savage. The firing pin was broke. More than likely little chance of range time with the current rains. Will try it out in a couple of days.
