Front bag 1710



Log in to see fewer ads
The gun is a heavy barrel. Have a Caldwell rest but hate the bag that came with it. Looking at protektor front bags. The gun likes to be held tight to group. Wondering what’s the best front bag to get. The small seems a bit small but would hold it tighter maybe. The medium seems a bit wide. Any help?

Just oder a custom Protektor front bag ($10 up-charge), and you'll be good to go.

This is a photo of my Anschutz 1727F Scannable skinny fore-stsocked rifle in my custom bag.



Here's my order form with the dimensions.

Notice the price was for (2) of them, one for me, and one for a friend.
Worked out great.

I was also able to fit my 1717 HB (Same as your 1710 ) 1.75 wide stock, as well as my 2..00 inch KIDD SuperGrade into it; so the above dimensions will work for a variety of rifles.
Kidd in a 2.25 inch wide Mcmillan Silhouette Stock.

Nice set up smooth.

Where on the forearm did you measure to arrive at your width needed for this particular bag?

How much tension do you apply with the adjustable ear flaps onto the stock, such as does it slide easy, or fairly tight with little movement from recoil??

Do you still use the cable drive for windage??

On the 1717/1710, the measurement was taken 5 inches down form the tip.
Note: I've slightly corrected the measurements in my 1st post for both the Anschuzt and the KIDD. They are now accurate.

On the KIDD the stock is a constant 2.0 inches wide.
The 1727 varies, and is at it skinniest where you see it from above in my photo.

The clamping system can be adjusted to just lightly hold the rifle for free recoil (but no rolling), to an absolute death grip tight enough that I can lift the rest off the bench by picking up the rifle.

I was one of the 1st to get rid of the windage cable, and you can find my threads on that upgrade by searching.
https://www.rimfirecentral.com/forum...d.php?t=575250 Most of the photos have been blown up by Photo Bucket, but the info and links are still good.

To answer a PM from member BBlount about what bag I use with the factory stocked 1727F, I thought I''d answer it here for all to see.

It's a Protektor 14B with the short bunny ears to stay away from the raised cheek piece, as pictured above.

That set up produced my smallest group ever with the rifle.
5 shots at 50yds. It's so small and a bit irregular that I can't give an accurate measurement. Something around .050 inch.

That 1727F action now resides in this stock.


And uses this bag.


But in an actual match, I remove the cheek piece and the butt hooks.


This set up has won the 1st two seasons of my ranges 12 month long USBR match.
This year with a 242-5X average shot in the conditions of the day at 9:00am on the 1st Saturday of each month. We shoot 2 targets back to back over a 45 minute time frame.
Top 16 scores are used to calculate the top three shooters in both the Match class, and the Sport class.
We use 16 targets in order to allow the shooters to miss a few match dates over the year.

Will this bag also work well with the really skinny stock found on the 1710-DKL?
Thanks!

Yes it should.
As far as I can tell the fore-stock of the DKL and the 1727F look very similar if not identical.

You can always adjust the snugness not only by the clamps on your rest, but by adding or removing sand from the bag.
