I bought a similar rifle a few years back before the accu-trigger was introduced to the rimfire line. I really has been a good little rifle to hunt and plink with. The scope that comes on the package series is nothing to ooh and awh over. It will work just fine until you buy a little nicer piece of glass for it. Then put that scope on a .22 or something similar.

get it. wall mart prices were $13 to 14 a box of 50 in Omaha today

but I think you should could consider spending a little more and get the BTVSS. It has a beautiful laminated thunmbhole stock and it is all stainless. Mine shoots like a champ.

Great gun/caliber. Check prices without the scope, then consider better glass.

Get it, IMO you won't be sorry.

I bought one without the accutrigger/scope back in Dec 07. Got it at Dicks for less than $100 otd on clearance. Wish I had bought the other one they had too. I put a cheap BSA sweet 17 scope on it. Yes I know BSA is considered junk. However, I am very happy with the set up. I have shot it out to 150 yds and no complaints, from function or accuracy. I have also managed to pick up 3 extra mags for less than $15 each. Next project is putting a set of swivels and bipod on it for a little whistle pig shooting. A new scope will probably be coming later.

what will be your 2 primary uses, first one first? if hunting/plinking, that is fine as is. If target shooting, get that, and remove the scope,and get a finer, higher power scope, and do a trigger job.
or as mentioned above, go to the lam stock, or a thumbhole.

I think that if you're like me, you'll regret it - you'll end up selling it and getting a different 93R17 with nice WOODEN stock, since it's a gun well worth owning and keeping long term. I also think that you'll be a happy camper with a very accurate gun after you take that step.

If you're not like me, you'll be able to tolerate a hideously ugly, cheap and cheesy plastic stock mated to a fine firearm. :p :)

I like my 93, its got the stainless barrel, and I put a Bushnell Sportsman 3-9x32 scope on it (cheapo)... Its a MOA gun as long as the wind isn't real strong.

Marlin makes a great rifle. My friend just got a Savage .17 HMR and that cartridge is awesome. Very accurate and very very little recoil.

I've got one, too.

That is a very fine rifle!
Why do you have your bi-pod on backwards?

March 3, 2009, 09:05 PM
Heh, I had just stuck it on that for that picture, I didn't even notice. It's a Harris bipod I had laying around.
