1418 full stock: Opinions needed



Log in to see fewer ads
Hi,
I have a chance of getting one of these rare full stock Anschutz in beautiful condition. Only thing stopping me: It is a 64 action and all my Anschutz are 54. Am I being a snob ? Should I buy the full stock ?
Thanks
Gilbert

Never owned a 64 action, but...

I am a 54 action snob myself, owned a few dozen of them. The 1418 is however, one that I wish that I had owned. I've only encountered two decent ones, but both had ultra bland wood,so I passed. The only other Anschutz that I wished that I had owned, is the 54:18 MSR.
Not complaining-I fully indulged myself with quite a few Canyon Creek customs.
Buy it.
In my next life, I'll also have some 141s,etc in the herd....and a place where these light sporters can be put to use.

The whole purpose for the 1418 is to be a light and handy little rifle.

The barrel is shorter, the stock forearm thinner, everything is light and trim.

Its really the ideal use for the 64 action!

Couldn't recommend one more highly!

Good luck!

Don

Thanks for your answers guys. Though I am mainly a BR shooter and have not much use for it, I am very tempted to buy it. It has beautiful wood and might do a nice plinker.

Is it a 1 piece or 2 piece forearm?

I love full stocked rimfire rifles and have several 1423s and got a 1418 for the reduced weight. I also got an old JGA and a Krico Stutzen. I am currently waiting for a Walther KKJ Stutzen that I located.

Why should I limit myself to only 54 actions?

I have the 22mag version of this gun. Finding, purchasing and hunting that rifle has given me great joy. It took me about 6 minutes to make up my mind. I paid top price at a Cabelas. No regrets, no hesitation and I did not have to ask anyone else what to do.

I would rather see that go to some one who really appreciates the rifle rather than have it added to a collection where it was looked down on as a 2nd grade rifle. They are rare because they never were for everybody and not all that popular.

The 54's are nice guns. Really nice. I can see how some one would specialize on that. Follow your passion and give the next guy a break at the same time.

Very sorry if I offended some of you by my comment. I was not trying to look down on the 64's although I realize that it sounded like it. I have bought the rifle and assure you that I will appreciate it and also shoot it. I have many good quality rimfires ( not all of them are Anschutz ) and have no full stocks in my collection yet.
Thanks all for your answers.

I've had an Anschutz 1418 .22 LR full stock, DST's since bought it new in 1978, when Savage was the importer. A splendid lil' full-stock sporting carbine and a delight to take a walk in the woods with. I mounted a 2 1/2x Hensoldt-Wetzler scope/base with a German #1 pointed post reticle, works fine in the woods n' for an outing when roaming the fields. I still have 4 magazines in the wax paper wrapping that I bought when I bought the rifle in 1978.
So, take your new-to-you 1418 for a walk in the woods and enjoy its company...
