The Savage 99 was a lever action, centerfire rifle. When it was first introduced, it was ahead of it's time. It was arguably a better rifle than the Winchester 94 of the same era, but it didn't seem to catch on as well. I believe they quit making it in the 50's, and reintroduced it for a while in the late 70's or early 80's, but again it didn't fire the shooting public's imagination. The only current model that Savage shows in the current catalog that has a rifle and a shotgun barrel is the Model 24-F. Nothing is shown in .17 caliber, but they have 22. long rifle, .22 magnum and .22 Hornet available, depending on whether you want a 12 or a 20 gauge shotgun barrel. Since the .17 is only a year old or so, I think it's safe to say it was never used in the 99 lever action, which was only made in centerfire calibers. And, the 24-F as of yet is not chambered for the .17. Check for yourself at http://www.savagearms.com/centerfire_home.htm under "Specialty Series."

I think the question refers to barrel length -- eg 17.5 inches -- unfortunately I don't know but I doubt it -- I bet the barrel has been trimmed -- remember that it's still legal as long as it's over 16 inches.
