Anecdotally, it seems to me the vast majority of Anschutz rifles extract and eject just fine. The problem is what does one do when the rifle does not? Still I see no real answer. The OP started with...

Probably the nicest 17 WSM Iíve seen! I commend you for your investment. Iíve bought and sold several 17 WSMs and several more project rifles to convert but never did. I almost sold my current VQ...

Agreed on the wanting to know what that boltface-to-extractor hook dimension is supposed to be. But even that will be a range, just like headspacing specifications. Still, even knowing what the...

As kind of an aside, the C-clip spring, which differs among models, even across the 54 actions, undoubtably also has an impact. I recall, when I was converting an old 70's era 1427 biathlon rifle to...

If the extractor hook ďjust grabbed above the rimĒ it might soon just not grab above the rim from fouling, and we all know the wide range of rim thicknesses across brands and lots, even in a single...

Maybe death grip was not the right expression. I didn't mean the bolt holds the cartridge with a death grip independently, outside of the rifle, or before the round is fed in the chamber, rather the...

Just weighing in in a generic way as a gunsmith, but also as someone who has had issues with ejection in some of his Anschutz rifles; aggravating, but honestly not bad enough for me to try to remedy...

Yes, the current replacement seals are usually bluish in color. I bought a 300S Junior a couple of years ago, kind of a Grail gun for me, as I coveted one as a kid. I mounted a Leupold 3-9x33 EFR,...

I really think my early 1885 .17 WSM shot poorly because of the lot of ammunition, not because of the rifle. I have subsequently owned/own VQ .17 WSM semiautos, and they shoot very well with one lot...

On Weaver-style rings that look okay on a 52C sporter, there are a couple. One choice is the Vortex rings. They look pretty nice (as in not tacticool), but they are aluminum and have that lame...

Quite miraculously, I located the packaging from the Warne bases. Please confirm, but the pic of "52 Sporter (USA)" should be it.

Hi,
Those may work, but, on principle, itís hard for me to recommend cheap aluminum Weaver bases for a $5K 52 sporter, as effective as they may be. If you look at the pics of my parts 52C, youíll...

Yes, thatís what the body shop guys said (they all came out to look). In the dashboard would have been a nightmare. It was an emotional nightmare for my son and his wife and 6 little kids.

The Perfect Handgun For The Avid Rifleman?

Or…at 3.5 lbs, the perfect walk-around varmint rifle?

While I'm not much of a handgun guy, I admit to being a .22 Hornet fanatic (root word to fan). I get a little weak in the knees when I see...
