    A tad unusual, but I wouldn't call it rare.
    These gems are an absolute blast to shoot in low wind. The recoil is so light you can watch the target impact through the scope. I used a .17 Rem years ago for prarie dogs and day one was perfect but the next day the wind was ~15 mph and I couldn't hit anything. In fact, I was hitting better with my .22lr than the .17 Rem.
    I am not sure I'd want one of these in a standard sporter barrel contour. The one I had was a VLS heavy barrel if I recall...
    Fanatic collector of the 10mm auto.
