Savage 93R17 GV Rifle
I purchased this rifle from BPS about 4 months ago and have taken it to the range two or three times. I love this gun! I think the .17 HMR round is inherently accurate, but this rifle with its heavy barrel and Accutrigger help to make it even more so. This Savage is well-balanced, good looking and just fun to shoot. Firing from a bipod and with an inexpensive 4X-16X scope I am shooting MOA at 100 yards. I believe that 3/4" to 1/2" groups are possible - if not for my shakiness. I highly recommend this to anyone interested in target shooting or hunting small game or varmints.

WOW, What a GREAT Rifle
I've had the rifle now for about two months. I've only had the opportunity to shoot it at the range, but I've been there about 6 or 7 times with this rifle. I installed a 3-9 x 50 scope on the rifle as soon as I got home with it. I bore sighted it, went to the range and shot 3 rounds at the 50 yard target. I was about 1" high and 1.5" left. I started shooting at the 100 yard target. Confirmed I was high and left with 3 or 4 shots. Adjusted the scope and tried again. Dead center at the 100 yard range. After making that one correction I finished a 50 round box of ammo on that same target. My group was all within a 1" pattern. I love this weapon. My buddy has been to the range with me about 4 or 5 times while I was shooting the Savage .17 HMR. Now he wants one so bad he can barely wait to pick one up. I watched several You Tube videos of guys hunting prairie dogs, ground squirrels, ground hogs, crows, and even coyotes. This .17 HMR round is accurate and deadly on small game. If you want to have a great deal of fun shooting, and not spend up to $1.00 per round with center fire ammo, go out and get a .17 HMR. It's unbelievable how accurate this Savage rifle shoots.

Accurate,Smooth & Durable
I bought this gun about 3-4 years ago and had a BSA sweet .17 scope installed from bass pro. Quite frankly this rifle is "my baby" out of all my guns (23). The bolt is super smooth, clip works great. I use .17 grain winchester rounds and have never had a problem. Keep in mind i do maintain my weapons religously including removing the bolt every time the gun is shot to apply new oil. Mine is used for protecting cattle in freezing temps nightly. All together the .17 cal by savage is a top of the line rifle for a medium price range. If i was to buy another or help a friend decide on a varmit rifle i would buy this one again.
