    I have a chance to pick up a magnum research .17 mach 2 semi auto with carbon fiber barrel & adjustable butt stock. I know nothing about this weapon. Is it any good? pros and cons? ammo cost? weapon cost? any help would be great. Thanks

    17 Mach2 is different from 17 HMR and not as popular. Even when ammo was available I would only see 1 box of 17 HM2 for every 10 boxes of 17 HMR. But then, that might mean that you could actually find ammo for it.

    I have one and it has been my go to gun for all small game for 3 years now. It is great light weight and packs a punch considering what it is. I put a full size butler creek stock on mine.
