I am attaching a photo of my 2 M17's. The one with the pepper laminate stock is a 35 Whelan AI, 25 inch Douglass air gauged competition barrel, timney trigger, flattened floorplate and lightened action to copy the rem 30 or 30s. Shoots 250gn Speer hotcore at 2750fps into moan at 100yards.
The other is my 25/ 303 Epps Newton improved, timney trigger, Llijla barrel and Boyds walnut stock. It has still got the guppy belly. Unbelievable accuracy 0.9 inch @ 200 yards with hornaday 117gn SST @ over 3,700 fps
