Hi, I received the kit on Friday and shot it that night for about 2 hours. Great barrel and quality craftsmanship. I took it to the local gun show. It was a big hit. Must have gave your website to 50 people. Lots of dealers interested. Thanks for a quality barrel and bolt handle. Thank you.
I have about 200 rounds through my EABCO 10/17 HM2 barrel/bolt handle combo and I just love it. It is very accurate and I have not had any malfunctions of any kind. Thank you,
My 17 Mach 2 conversion kit for 10/22 arrived today...the procedure was easy and I headed for the range within an hour...50 meter groups could be covered with a dime without swabbing or serious sandbags at the bench...I am very
(Doug said to add that he's very experienced and that it might take longer to assemble for a first timer.)

Just got my two barrels and conversion bolt handles I ordered. Installed them tonight and fired them in my indoor range. They work fabulous and were flawless, from the first to the last round. Not a single misfeed or jam.
You folks have done good stuff. Your barrels are great too. Nice tight groups. I will spread the word.
I am writing to compliment you on your fine products.
I recently purchased your 17 mach 2 conversion, installation was simple and my new rifle was ready in about an hour. On the first trip to the range I sighted the rifle in @ 50 yards and shot the group pictured below with the first box of ammunition. I have since fired 1000 rounds through the rifle with no malfunctions, and average 1 1/2" groups @ 100 yards. I have not had the opportunity to hunt with this rifle but squirrel season opens in September? I currently own (4) Ruger 10/22 rifles and the 17 mach 2 is my favorite! Again thank you for your fine products and service. Sincerely.
Don't know if you publish pictures of your customers guns but thought I'd send a picture of mine and thank you for the products and service you provide. This is probably one of the best looking and shooting rifles I own. Just wanted to thank you for building some of the best looking, high performance, tight grouping, barrels I've ever shot. Keep up the good work,
Just got my .17HM2 barrel and bolt handle assembly, installation no problem. Gun performed flawlessly, accuracy is as advertised. Well done!
I just wanted to let you know about the barrel I bought from you. I am EXTREMELY pleased with it. It functions flawlessly and is very accurate... I bought a Savage bolt action in 17 HM2 so I could try the short 17 on squirrels. It is THE perfect round for small game. Now I have the perfect rifle as well. The Savage is going to be sold or traded at the next gun show. Thanks again,C W Tanner Jr. MD
Just wanted to let you know my impressions of my new EABCO 10-22 kit... I will say that I think the barrel shoots pretty well considering the money spent. I fired four 5 shot groups at 100 yds. and the largest was 1.5" and the smallest was .998. Hornady ammo was used. The barrel does not appear to pick up much metal fouling at all and cleaned up very easily... The velocities I measured as I shot the groups averaged a little under 2000 fps...Your personnel are pleasant to deal with and I look forward to doing business with you in the future.
Sincerely,Robert E. Pearce
I received my 17HM2 Bolt and Barrel Kit today at 6:00 PM via UPS. It took all of 15 minutes to install the kit on my 10/22.
The instructions were great and well written. The kit fit very nice and precise. The finish on the barrel is great.
Thank you very much for the prompt response and delivery
and the quality of the product...Mel Pardue
I recently purchased one of your Mach 2 conversions and wanted to say THANK YOU!! I have had zero hiccups with this setup of any kind. It functions flawlessly and is extremely accurate .245" at 50 yards is my best group yet and it only has 100 rds. through it so far! Thanks,
I recently purchased your barrel/bolt mod to make a 10/17HM2 out of a Ruger 10/22. I already had the thumb hole stock so the change was an easy one. This one is a keeper. My first night out hunting with it netted 10 jack rabbits, 2 field mice, and a young (probably 15 lbs) coyote!
Congratulations on coming up with such a fine product.

Eabco 17 Mach II Conversion: Well Worth It!
Decided Grandson needed more than the 10/22 LR for pokin’ pesky Jacks. Had been following the 17 M2 and the conversions by eabco. Sprung for the SS, Fluted, and Heavy Bbl w/ the eabco heavy bolt handle.
Grandson and I installed in about 15 minutes. Excellent fit and finish, good-looking heavy fluted barrel w/ 11-degree target crown. Just replace the old barrel, switch the standard bolt handle for the heavy and you are ready.
The surprise is not the fit and finish. It is not that it all functions so well. It is how incredibly ACCURATE that round is! Sight in w/ 10 rounds at 50 yds and then put four other 10 shot groups in less than and inch. Many of these shots were same holers.
Took out tonight to the ‘Killing Fields’ for jacks. It smacks ‘em down. Grandson is super deadly now to 100 yds on these tough critters. No way, a LR is as deadly or as accurate. The eabco kit is everything it is advertised to be and more. The round is super accurate and knocks small varmints DEAD!
This is a post I have left on several boards, THANKS for the great product! Thanks and Gig'em - Mark A. Fairchild
I just got my conversion and butler creek stock. I should have done it along time ago I shot a 10 shot group off my toolbox while my truck was running at 50 yds and you could cover it with a nickel!!!
I rarely write to companies regarding their products, but have had such a good experience with yours I felt compelled to write. I purchased a 17 HM2 conversion kit with bolt handle for my 10/22 Ruger. I also bought the trigger modifications and a swift scope from you. Installation was straight forward and easy. I have had it together for quit a while now and have put a 1000 plus rounds through the rifle. It has been flawless in operation. It originally could shoot better than I could but as I have settled into using this rifle I have come to respect its accuracy. On bench rest at 100 yards I am now consistently shooting 1 inch or less 5 shot groups. Once in a while I throw a flyer but that is not the guns fault. The gun never fails to attract attention at the range and has been a lot of fun. A close friend has acquired a 10/22 and asked if I would help him put it together if he bought the parts, of courses I said yes. Thanks again for a great product and prompt support. - Jon Ladeau
