Clark 10/17 .17 HMR

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

GUN TESTS GRADE: B+
Clean, no surprises, outstanding trigger and accuracy were the hallmarks of Clark's 10/17. This rifle gave the best accuracy of the test. We were not overjoyed with the fore-end shape, but it was entirely usable. The pistol grip shape was our favorite of the three rifles.

This rifle was something of a sleeper. Superficially, it resembled the Briley, but with a shorter barrel and gray-colored laminated stock that had a cheekpiece. Unfortunately, the cheekpiece was of the roll-over type, which the Volquartsen also had, making them less than ideal for left-handers.
We mounted our Leupold 36X in Ruger rings, using the integral Ruger bases. The Clark performed very well.
We felt the trigger stops used by Clark and Volquartsen were needed on this type of precision rifle. The two-tone action/barrel combination was a bit odd, but most shooters accepted it.
Adequate for any purpose to which the .17 HMR could be put, the Clark rivaled some of the most accurate rifles we've tested, in any caliber and any configuration.
