You don't have much choice - Savage or CZ and of those two, the CZ wins by a mile.

As far as I can tell you have these to choose from:

 

Anschütz 1771 D;

Cooper Firearms of Montana (Classic, Custom Classic, Jackson Hunter, Mannlicher, Montana Varminter, Phoenix, Varmint Extreme, Varminter and Western Classic);

CZ 527 (American, Thumbhole and Varmint);

E. A. Brown Model 97D;

Ruger 77/17 (no longer made as far as I can tell); and

Savage Model 25 (Walking Varminter, Walking Camo, Lightweight Varminter and Lightweight Varminter Thumbhole);

 

That or a customer jobby?

Nothing about a 17 Hornet on the Weihrauch website, although I agree, it wouldn't be difficult for them to do it by adapting their 22Hornet/222REM models

I had a HW66 Jagd Match - THE BEST FACTORY rifle I have ever owned.  Ask Baldie.  He made a comment on the quality of this rifle a while ago -  Now in 17 Hornet.

 

NEW - Now available in cal. .17 Hornet.

 

HW-66-JM-Zfr.-Stainless-Steel-Lauf-schr%

 

Why did I sell it - .17HMR - ammunition quality !!

Can someone provide definitve proof that Weihrauch is now manufacturing a 17Hornet rifle

17 Hornet as NOT in 17HMR or 22 Hornet.

I'd love it to be true and it wouldn't be difficult, but other than very occasional stock changes, the Weihrauch centrefire line up hasn't changed in many years

 

Cheers

Bruce,

 

As far as I can tell, yes they are.

 

From their website.

 

https://www.weihrauc...d-match?lang=en

 

Though not in the table, it is stated in the text.

 

And in this news article back from March this year.

 

https://www.weihrauc...eaters2?lang=en

 

So they will be chambering all their small bore repeaters in 17 Hornet.

 

Whether they are available yet, who knows?

 

Neil

I have had a CZ 527 Varmint for a few months now (since Feb) absolutely faultless and have dropped several fox, and a lot of smaller stuff. Rabbits, crows and a few pigeon.

A quality piece of kit, and I was lucky to get a nice piece of timber on mine too. Set trigger is perfect in my opinion.

Greenfields Guns, Salisbury have two in stock I think.

Weihrauch would have been seriously considered if they were available at the time.

I've bought two rifles from Steve now, both have been spot on. He's a good dealer to support.

Spanner - one of the best actions and triggers out there.  Had the 66 Jagd-Match in .27 HMR - poor ammo !! - loved that rifle.

 

I'll follow with interest . .

I have an Anschutz 1771 in 17 Hornet on order, should be here early next year, going to replace my HMR as I just want to able to reach a bit further when using my thermal scope without worrying about holdover.

 

Thought about the Weihrauch but I loved my old Annie HMR so I went with one of them, 5 shot mag not 4 also helped swing it.
