In 1979

I bough a mint Colt Huntsman from a Sr Designer for $75 bucks in 79. Big money for a 20 year old draftsman. This is back in era of softboards, wired straightedges, 45’s, 30/60/90’s, back when...

Thats a 2 stage. Great trigger

I was under the false assumption that Anchutz 1416s only came with set or two stage. Triggers, barrels and ignition systems are the trilogy of accuracy

Wonderful Rifle and good price

That is a 2 stage trigger and its completely adjustable.

My 1416 with a 23 bbl is one of my dedicated backyard guns which is sighted in at 100 with CCI Quiets. Silent and quite accurate. I hit...

Very nice trigger

I just checked them out.

If one pound is all you want, that will do. If you want to lighten without clipping coils, they sell spring kits that have 4,5&6# springs. If this were my carry gun,...

Just kidding

The 44 shoots 3 offhand at 10yards. Not bad for a plinker.

The new trigger really helps. Im just not used to striker fired.

I started with a 2x7 Leupold but my K-22 shot so well I wanted to take it out to 100 yards, so I put on a 3-9x33 EFR, but on calm, no coffee days, I wanted to take it out to 200 yards... It now has a...

Many Thanks

I just wanted to thank everybody that helped with this issue. I believe it was a combination of a little dirt and possibly a bad lot of ammo.

I broke the gun completely down, soaked it in...
