The Savage® 93R17 BTVSS is set up to achieve the maximum range and accuracy possible from a bolt-action rimfire rifle. The 93 BTVSS comes with an incredibly stable, wood laminate thumbhole stock with a ventilated, semi-beavertail forend. The stock features a high comb and rollover cheek piece that position the shooter's eye in correct alignment with optical sights. A heavy-contoured, free-floated stainless steel barrel, with a target-crowned muzzle, enhances accuracy. Savage's AccuTrigger® enables shooters to obtain exceptional accuracy with the Savage 93R17 BTVSS, by allowing you to easily adjust it to your desired weight of pull for a light, crisp release with no creep. A lever mounted within the trigger body blocks the sear unless the trigger is intentionally pressed in the center, minimizing the risk of accidental discharge. The receiver comes drilled and tapped with factory installed Weaver-type scope bases. 2 sling swivel studs on the forend accommodate carrying the rifle with a sling, while a bi-pod is attached. The bolt features dual extractors for positive extraction of spent cases, and a 5-round, detachable magazine facilitates loading and unloading the rifle. The 2-stage safety is located on the right side of the receiver, and the action can be cycled with it in the safe position. The Savage 93R17 BTVSS Bolt-Action Rimfire Rifle in 17 HMR reaches out over 150 yards to take varmints, small game, and medium sized predators such as coyote, fox, and bobcat with minimum muzzle blast and pelt damage.
Savage 17HMR M93 Rifle with AccuTrigger - Green Laminate Stock
I had the salesman bring out 3 of these rifles, but it only took the first one to bite. The stock feels great and the weaver mounts made it easy to fit a Bushnell Trophy XLT 4-12x40. with high Weaver mounts (1mm of clearance from target barrel)
The target barrel is beefy! The rifle also came with a quality magazine (not the junk one from other .17's)
only refinement required to the stock was to razor the laminate at the foreend.

I bought this rifle as a gopher gun instead of a .22 on the suggestion of numerous forums. I couldn't be more happy. The rifle is a tack driver. After zeroing at 50 yds I was making 5 shot groupings within a quarter at 100 yds. Feeling a little cocky, I set up five 12 gauge hulls as targets and knocked the primer out of each with the first attempt again from 100 yds. Took the gun out for the first gopher shoot a week ago with similar results. Making one shot kills from 75 to 150 yds. I am told that I am no longer allowed to bring the gun on gopher trips as I can easily take out varmints twice the distance being shot by my counterparts equipped with .22's. Fat chance. Sure the price per bullet may be more than a .22, but when you are only taking one shot to make the kill, it probably evens out.

I purchased this gun and it became one of my favorites right away. It is extremely accurate and and the rifle itself feels great in your hands. This is the perfect rifle for coyote hunting. After we got the scope sighted in went 10 for 10 on the target set at 100 yrds. WOW this gun is SWEET!

I purchased this gun about a year ago, very accurate, sighted in at 100 yds, the new clip has a tendency to not keep the cartridges in, but with a little tweeking it works well . somewhat heavy with a bipod, and a massive scope on it, but a great buy none the less.
