The Marlin XT-17VSL is a tool for every task, and for varmints, the right tool is the XT-17VSL chambered in 17HMR. It sends a polymer-tipped bullet rocketing downrange at 2,500+ feet per second with a laser-flat trajectory. The XT Pro-Fire adjustable trigger produces an extremely consistent trigger pull with an ultra-clean break. Included are 4 and 7-shot clip magazines. The rugged black and gray laminate hardwood Monte Carlo stock comes with sling swivel studs. Its receiver is drilled, tapped and grooved for you choice of convenient scope mounting options. The barrel is a 22 Stainless heavy varmint with front and rear scope bases only.
