I know and that really stinks. Oh well, I just have to use one of my 10 other .22 pistols until they do. In the mean time I may have to satisfy my need for a new gun by purchasing this VQ.https://www.volquart...tItems.jsp?id=6It the only version with a full stainless steel receiver. Plus since I prefer left hand shooting it doesn't have a funky hi-rise right handed stock that i can't shot from.
Same here John, but VQ won't submit any of their receivers or whole pistols for the CA drop test....
Info Marlin hm2?

Points well taken Before I got my 17HMR I thought about turning my 10/22 to an HM2.But my 10/22 is so nice I can't defile it. I can see converting a 10/22 if you longer want to shoot 22'sBut I still can't see buying a dedicated HM2.Joel, Very nice
I'm converting one of my 10/22's because first and foremost I don't care for the .22LR anymore. 22LR is borderline effective past 50 yards, they aren't the most accurate and they ricochet terribly.So now you ask why not just the .17HMR. Well, I think it's overkill for some of the shooting I do, it's louder than it need be and the cost is more. Now you say louder? Well, it is and more noise translates into more squirrels and other animals hiding due to the BANG. Besides, since I won't be shooting .22LR's anymore I have a gun I won't be using and the .17M2 will be a great replacement I'm able to shoot for less money than the HMR.
