We have one. We like it except for the occasional misfire.
Were have been shooting a Marlin 917V for quite a few years now. We have a Sweet 17 straight 4x on it and use it as grab and go rifle for smaller critter. It is quite a rat rifle. For bigger critters the 20 grain load has proven best.
We have several friends with various Savage rifles and ALL of them shoot well but not all of them feed well

The Stevens is my only 17HMR. I inherited it from my father, it was the last gun he ever shot. I goes without saying, though I just said it, it will never be sold and will go to family when the time comes.
