Going to a Buy Anschutz 1712



Log in to see fewer ads
Iíve been considering an Anschutz 1712 for most of this year. Read many posts, old and new here and elsewhere.

Iíve never even seen an Anschutz.

Primary purpose is squirrel hunting here in KY. I donít need it but...

Never considered a suppressor either but thinking to get AV model for suppressor as well. Maybe the stainless barrel version. I donít like rifles that are much more than 40Ē long. A long suppressor might spoil the look.

The only thing that concerns me is the wood. I donít want plain Jane but canít do Canyon Creek $$ either. Considering McMillen lightweight stock to avoid poor wood but several month wait is a bummer. Iíve been that route with custom recurve bows.

Iím thinking to buy @: Buds, Champschoice, champions, cheaper than Dirt, or Coves Creek.

Nice one on GI now but not threaded. Beautiful looking wood though.

I think ideal for me: 1712, AV, better than average wood. I have a beautiful Cooper Custom Classic 57M that I could sell to finance this, for a lot more than I paid (new) about 15 years ago, but Iíd surely regret it.

Advice:
Best place to buy?
Do any sellers hand pick stock?
Suppressor suggestions less than 5Ē?

I'm sure others will be along shortly, since we love spending others' money, but, given your desire for nice wood and a shorter threaded barrel, ANA's custom shop would be the place to go. Pricey, but not in the same league, price wise, as a Canyon Creek.

Another vote for the ANA website and you can even preview the stock in the Custom Shop, or choose from the Meistergrade selection (see links below). You will pay more from either, but if very nice wood is important to you, and you aren't able to pick one out at your LGS, it's the way to go. Ordering a 1712 AV blind at a lower price might get you a very nice stock, but probably not. Just sayin...

I recently ordered a 1712AV from ANA's Meistergrade selection and I'm very pleased with it (and I have several Canyon Creek rifles for comparison).

Most sellers don't or won't handpick, and if they did, their taste might not be the same as yours.
Buy a gun where you can see photos before you buy.

Either go for an example displayed on the ANA website, or wait for a nice one to be offered by Pacific Sporting Arms. They are primarily a high end shotgun shop, and apparently have some pull in getting nice looking guns for their inventory.

If you want the cheapest price, that pretty much means taking the luck of the draw, with the next box pulled from the shelf.

I bought an Anschutz from Champion Shooters Supply a couple of years ago, and the sales person there took some pictures of a rifle for me. I don't know if that is something they are willing to do routinely. I expect many dealers avoid it for fear of getting stuck with rifles having plain wood.

Sounds like a plan!

I don't know what's up with the supply side of things. A lot of dealers are showing only some of what Anschutz offers or listing certain models as OOS. I know that in times past outlets like Champion Shooters (good prices) would work with you on wood, either picking a better standard grade specimen or working through ANA for you.

I have a half dozen various models in both 54 and 64 actions.
One thing I have noticed is my rifles with Monte Carlo stocks have nicer wood than the others with straight cut stocks.
It could be purely coincidental but that's how it has worked out for me so far.

Found a 1712 and bought it.

Two very fine fellows here contacted me with tempting possibilitiHad to decide McMillen or wood. Went with walnut but that McMillen is haunting me!
Thanks

Hope you enjoy it! My 1712 av has proven quite effective for central KY squirrels.

No need for a suppressor

I just use Eley subsonic HP. Not much noise and very effective. RWS subsonic HP is good also. The CCI is not hardly as accurate in my rifles but plenty for hunting and very common.

I would buy from Champions Choice. Their knowledge is unsurpassed and very good to deal with
