I agree with Camster that tal's 1407 is more valuable than Duffy's imported match rifles that have seen little care over their life time. I was the only person in more than one German gun club that I was a member in, who took care of the guns. I have seen incredible neglect, particularly on club-owned guns, and on luxury rifles in Germany.

Because of that I do think that tal"s rifle is considerably more desireable and valuable than some fixer-upper.

How does the rear sight come off? I loosened the thumb screws but do I have to remove the scope block to remove it?

I don't see any interference anywhere. It's merely been jammed on there too far. Remove the mounting screws entirely so they don't interfere at all with spreading the mounting rails. The screws may have E-Clip stops you can remove using a screwdriver tip. Spray some WD-40 on the rails and sight and tap it off with a hammer and punch applied front-to-rear on the sight rails that hold the mounting screws. You can also try spreading the rails with a wide screwdriver, but take care not to break them, as this is a pot-metal casting, not a forging.

It is a stock 1407 if you look at the barrel just before the receiver there is usually a 2 digit number which is the year, if it is a letter then it is in the 70's. There are websites around which decode the letters. A few years ago you could get them for about $800 but they are not as common in what appears to be very good condition. It is missing the rear iris but that is easy to replace and very commonly done, see Champion's cjoice or Champion shooters for a nice selection.

As Bob wrote: "Remove the mounting screws entirely so they don't interfere at all with spreading the mounting rails." You also want to remove the bolts that go through and then remove them towards the rear.

The guy I got it from bought it to shoot locally in high school shooting club and then put it away. I dont expect it was really used much.

If the rear sight is stubborn, lightly tap it with a block of wood, not a punch.

The sight did come off very easily, no tapping required at all!

I listed this on gunbroker a few days ago, mainly because I shoot with my left hand (shoulder)but operate the bolt with the right and the stock doesnt work well for that. Did Anschutz make a drop in replacement stock I could get that doesnt have a right hand persation? No pistol grip/forearm only usable with my rt hand?

There may be some leftie shooter/right bolt stocks out there, but they will have the same general design as a standard stock.

Some may be willing to pay more but not me.
Heck I've heard the Kenyon triggers alone are going for $700.
