Question about Savage 93R17 F .17 HMR

Has anyone bought one of these. I think mine may be fairly accurate, but it's hard to tell. My rifle has to have the single worst trigger pull of any rifle I have ever owned. My pull gauge doesn't even go high enough to measure it and it is rough and gritty with terrible over-travel. Are there replacement triggers for this out there or am I stuck having to clean this mess up?

I think I've found the answer to my own question. Rifle Basix makes a replacement adjustable trigger for around $85. This thread (Savage Trigger Shim - RimfireCentral.com Forums) shows how to fix the factory trigger for what sounds like a very decent trigger pull. Looks like Savage has reacted to the issue too. All of the Model 93's now come with their Accu-trigger system. My luck, I bought my from older stock on clearance.

Glad you've found a solution, and posted about it. Let us know how it works out.

I'd never even heard of this model, but rest assured, someone will be along with it, and the same problems and questions.

Mine is the economy model with a synthetic stock. Once I get the trigger decent, it should be a real shooter. The stock is molded with built in pillar bedding and it has a grade 1 barrel on it. Even with the bad trigger, I was getting 1", 5 round groups offhand at 25 yards. I'm really looking forward to getting it tuned up. I also want to switch out the scope. Right now I have a Bushnell Elite 3200 on it. It's a great scope for big game but I think I want something with much finer crosshairs for this rifle.

I thought the trigger was the selling point of Savage; or is that just the centerfire line that they put their accutrigger in? I've been looking at a few Savage rifles, maybe someone who knows can help us out?

They started putting the accu-trigger on all of their rimfires as well as of 2010 as far as I can tell. Just my luck that I got mine in '09. However, it is an easy fix. As soon as I get an afternoon to play, I'm going to tune mine as in the link shown above. I'll post my results with some pics when I do.

I wish, but I think mine will be great when I'm done.

Savage has been using the Accu-trigger and accu-stock as selling points for the rifles and only the top end rifles have it standard. THey will happily install an accutrigger in any older rifles for over $200.00. Then, once you have the accu-trigger and discover it WILL NOT go to any lighter than you received it. If you want your accu-trigger to perform, it is necessary to send it back for a $65.00 trigger job plus $20 for S&H. That's how "good" it is.
I had bought a non accutrigger 9317R for almost 275. plus tax. It was all right , but was never really impressed by the rifle. It was traded.
Six months later I bought a 93R17 FVXP, with scope, accutrigger and heavy fluted barrel for $249. plus tax.
I had bought the first, under the impression all Savage rifles have accutrigger. NOT TRUE.
My remington 700 with the Walker trigger system is a better trigger, out of the box, than the accutrigger. It is a sales ploy and a gimmick. It is adjustable from probably 3.5-8 or 9 lbs. trigger pull.
Good rifles, very questionable advertising, that to me, is misleading.
None of the low end Axis or Edge are equipped with the accutrigger...

I have a Pre Accu Trigger 93/17 with a Rifle Basix Trigger, and I also have an Accu Trigger MK II TR. The 93/17 had a creepy, rough, heavy trigger till I replaced it. The MK II trigger was heavy at the lightest setting (2lbs). That is the lightest the Rimfire trigger will go. I trimmed the spring, and got it down to 1 1/4 lbs with a bit of creep. The Rifle Basix trigger is still 100% better (12oz). I'm just going to replace the accu trigger with another Rifle Basix trigger for the accu trigger.

HI Thanks for the line on the Rifle Basix Triggers. That's even cheaper than shipping and having the accutrigger made to do what I thought it did. Way to go!
I found a scale to test some triggers and the Savage at the lightest is 2 lbs, as you said.
I had a mossberg .17 and the trigger was terrible, the bolt was inferior, sent it back and it came back as junk. The older Savage was good, and after the Mossberg, that trigger seemed OK. I traded that, and got the accutrigger. That should be a standard on all the Savage rifles.
Those .17 HMR's sure are fun to shoot! Have a good day and Thanks.
