    Dad got me one for Christmas, and he had to leave early and pull somebody out of the snow so I hadn't gotten to really talk to him about it. Don't know much about .22LR guns, but this looks pretty sweet.

    Opinions? Anybody own one?

    Looks like a 10/22 with some upgrades. Should be a nice lightweight shooter.

    I've passed up two of those rifles on decent deals and regretted it. Your's a 17HMR or a 17HM2 deal? Supposedly they have some new ideas to make a 17HMR work in a 10/22 platform that look pretty interesting.

    As for scope suggestions.... depends on several things, but personally I'd be scouring the various classified sections for a Leupy 6x42 or 3.5-10 (with intentions of having M1 turrets added) to slap aboard.
