Just got a screaming deal on a 1964 Anschutz 1408! Now for the rest of the story. A huge reason for the good deal I think is the fact that the stock is beat up badly, and someone chopped the buttstock very short, and screwed on a vintage Al Freeland adjustable buttplate hardware set. It doesn't fit anybody as far as I can see. I have shot it a little bit and am impressed. I stirred all night trying to figure out how to fix it. I decided to make a wood adapter section to go from graceful Anschutz to shovel handle Freeland. Not an easy task in 3". Here are a couple of pictures, I will update as I go along.
