    I was wondering if anyone has had any positive or negative experience with the NEF Sporter in .17 HMR? I looked at one this week and the trigger pull is actually VERY amazing for a gun that carries a $150 price tag.

    Mine is a good little shooter. Have a cheapo BSA .22 Special on it.
    Can't see a $400 scope on a $150 Rifle.
    A bit expensive to shoot but ammo prices seem to be coming down.
    You can also send the receiver and forearm to H&R and get a .22 mag barrel put on it for $67.

    Might add though that my Marlin 60 with the same model scope will shoot just as good groups @ 100 yds.

    I haven't messed with the NEF in .17HMR. But I have a Savage 93 bolt in .17HMR it has been the gun i've shot themost lately. it's a fun lil gun. If a NEF ain't what your looking for but arojund your price range. Check Wal-mart and such and you can find Marlin Bolts in .17HMR for a tad more $$. Last I seen was a Heavy barrel, blued with wood stock for around $179.

    If the NEF will shoot like my Savage 93 you'll be happy with it.
