I already have a H&R 17HMR and a H&R 17 Mach 2. My rifles did not come with sights. I've have a 6X24X40 scope on the 17HMR.
I've shot a lot of different 17 cal. rifles and this rifle is by far the most accurate rifle in this cal. I've ever shot. The hammer is nearly silent when cocked, and the trigger pull is sweet. At 200 yds. you can easily pick bottle caps off.
The reviews don't give this gun what it deserves, They just need to hire a better shooter!! But if your looking for a good varmit buster then this is the rifle. Good plunkin

I bought two of these H&R Sportster rifles this year - one in .17 HMR, and the other in .22 S/L/LR. The .17 HMR rifle will shoot groups you can cover with a dime at 100 yards, but the .22 will not.
For the .22 rifle, I had to resort to a lower power round and pull the target into 50 yards to get any consistency. So yes - I am happy with the .17 H&R rifle, and not so happy with the .22.
I intend to send the .22 into the factory to have it refitted for a .22 magnum heavy barrel. I will be ready for gopher season next spring!
