I'm trying to find how many of these SS HUNTER 17hmr/17mach2 or blued model convertibles were made. I tried a search here but couldn't find how many were made. Just found out they made these in blued also Thanks

Unfortunately Ruger does not like to give out this info. I dont think it is a very large number though. They ran some single cylinder ones in 17 HMR only afterwards.

Not that many! If you see one under a K your looking at a good deal.
Best of luck to you!

I doubt that there were more than 200-300 and that is probably on the high side. I think they only made one shipment to various distributors.

I don't think there were any convertable blued 17's made. I do not recall hearing or seeing anything about any.
There are blued 17 Single-Sixes, and stainless Hunters.

Anyone know approx how many of the .17HMR only Hunters were made. I bought one NIB a few weeks back and now don't seem to see many for sale. Glad I bought one before the NIB supply dried up.

I've been hunting one for years. I thought it dried up a long time ago...

Budsgunshop had brand new ones in stock for $469. I think I bought the last one as it showed out of stock after I ordered. Sorry.

If you look on gunbroker or gunsamerica you will see a few NIB ones listed, but they usually want 550+. I also saw that Lipseys still has them listed, but not sure if they have any.

My bad I guess. I thought you were talking about the 17 Hunter convertibles that are no longer made.

I asked about the blued 17 convertibles. I found out that the 17 mach2 cylinder was an after market. I don't know who made this cylinder. I'm just glad I didn't buy this gun.

Probably at least a few thousand. Up until a couple years ago, Ruger was still doing cleanup runs of the .17, but haven't heard of any of late.
