#SundayGunday: Marlin XT-17VSL

by
posted on March 10, 2019

This week, we take a look at the Marlin XT-17VSL, a bolt-action rimfire chambered in .17 HMR. With a 22-inch heavy-varmint barrel, laminate hardwood Monte Carlo stock and roughly 7-pound weight, this little rifle is a prime choice for pest control and small game. With features such as an adjustable trigger, included scope bases, nickel-plated sling-swivel studs, the company's tough Mar-Shield stock finish and more, the XT-17VSL's price tag of $429 is almost too good to be true. Learn more about it in the video embedded above, hosted by Assistant Editor Connor McKibbin. MSRP: $429; marlinfirearms.com.
