17 Aquilla

I picked up this little 17 rimfire at a gunshow yesterday. The seller called it a " 17 Aquilla ". Is that the right name for this cartridge?

There was a thread awhile back on these.

It’s .17 A g u i l a

Actually, its “.17 Aguila,” with one “l.” The Spanish word “Aguila” translates to the word “Eagle” in the English language.

You’re right. My misteak.

It means “Eagle” in English. Or does it mean “Eagle” in Spanish???

I wish I had paid more attention in high school English class. ;) ;)

I already miss Paul Harvey. When you grow up with somebody like Paul Harvey you feel that they will always be there when you turn the dial.
