    Anyone have one? I've also heard the triggers are a bit heavy, around 5lbs, a bit more than I like for target and hunting. Do they now have a version of Savage's Accutrigger?

    You guys are killing me. This is a Marlin forum and nobody knows anything about the 917? I'm sure someone here must have one of them.

    I have the 917 VS-CF and love it. I wouldn't say the trigger is too heavy, but I don't have a trigger pull gauge. The trigger on mine is not adjustable. Hope this helps.

    I've got twin baby boys, I no longer get online much...LOL

    The XT17 series picked up where the 917 series left off...yes, the XT trigger is better,
    and you can order one from Marlin & have a gunsmith install it on your 900-series Marlin :)

    The only changes between the 917 & XT17 were the stock & the trigger...that's it...
    but WOW!! talk about a great trigger change!! :D
