Re: .17 Hmr Cz

I guess that I have to be the one that gets the lemon. I bought a .17 HMR CZ American. The store was about to close so I did not get a chance to put the bolt in the action. The gun looked OK so I bought it. When I got home I found that I could hardly get the bolt to close. The clip lips were too high and blocked the bolt. The bolt did not fit the gun very well and feeding was not the best. I had to force the bolt closed.

Since that time I have filed the clip lips down to clear the bolt and used Friction Block on the action and just opened and closed the bolt until it would work somewhat smoothly.

The test target was 1.5" and this is what it shot. After several hundred shots it is now shooting around 1" at 100 yds. I thought that I was buying a quality rimfire but I did not get one. My Marlin shot .600 five shot groups at 100 yds. from the start. My best group with the Marlin was 1/8".

I have learned from this lesson that you always put the gun together before you buy. My wife bought a Marlin .17 MII from the same store. Before she paid I took the gun out of the box and discovered that the stock was broken in half at the wrist. Imagine the hassle if she had taken it home before looking at it.
