Default Ruger 17 Hornet

Ever since I sold my Savage M25 17 hornet I've been wanting another. I had always been intrigued by the Ruger 17 hornet but the price had always made me a little skeptical about it. I finally got to the point that I couldn't stand it anymore and I decided to order one. It came in yesterday and so far I am completely satisfied with my purchase. It shoots extremely well and looks great also. I look forward to many nights out with this rifle. Here are a couple of pics that I took after I sighted it in today.

Sorry it took me so long to respond. Weasel, the trigger consistently breaks at 4 3/4 lbs, which is something that I'll work on before too long. And southerntier, I ordered it from gunbroker and it took about a week to get it here. Thanks for the responses!!

Very nice! You must have been one of the lucky ones, I was looking on gallery of guns almost everyday for that exact gun and never saw them available. I ended up getting the savage 25 walking varminter in .17 hornet and love it. Very accurate and awesome cartridge
