I bought a new Marlin 917 that was cut down (it is 16.5" now) and re-crowned (professionally) and I didn't like the color scheme or stock so I continued to work on it. As the rifle currently sits. - Marlin 917 action .17HMR - Boyd's tacticool stock - Tasco 6x24x42 varmint scope - EGW 20 MOA picatinny rail - KRG bolt lift knob - Harris adjustable notched and tilt bipod - Free floated barrel - Bedded action I then took the action to a gunsmith (A&J) and had him bead blast the action, glass bed it in the stock and duracoat the entire thing in matte black. I shot it once with less than 50 rounds and got it sighted in. It shoots far more accurately than I can. I discovered its just not my thing and I am a city dweller so no opportunity to hunt with it. Hence the sale. I have about 200 rounds of ammo I will include with it. Comes with the factory 7 and 4 round mags. I have the original box and lock etc. You can even have the old plastic stock. I would much rather have the cash out of it but I am willing to entertain trades. $450 Looking for J frames especially!! View attachment 71673 Oh and BTW this upload quota is HORRIBLE.
