Purchasing First Anschutz



Log in to see fewer ads
Thinking about purchasing one but not sure about what to choose. I have looked at the 1710 D, 1710 two stage trigger, 1712 Sporter. Dont know anything about them. Which one would be the most accurate? Thanks.

anschutz are pretty consistent, ammo will likely be the determining factor. just buy the one you like best, because there is no way to guess if one will be a significantly better shooter than the others. i tend to prefer heavy barrels, and the 2 stage trigger is awesome!

I have a few Anschutz, one of them is a 1710 with the 2 stage trigger. I highly recommend it. Of course, lots depends on what your use will be.

Anschutz

This rifle was a retirement present to myself. It shoots very nicely from prone with a sling. I have adapted shoulder straps to carry it in the winter for hunting on skis.
Model 1827 Fortner bolt. Biathlon rifle.

Call Brian or Danny at Anschutz 205-655-7500. Two of the nicest guys youíll ever talk to. Lots of models to choose from. They will help you make an informed decision. I wanted to hunt with mine as well as do some target. Also I wanted to suppress it. We settled on the 1712 AV. Good luck and great choice. I did a lot of research.

All of the 54 action guns the OP mentioned are excellent and one model does not stand out as clearly better. I caution you on trigger selection. If you have never used a 2 stage trigger while hunting, I strongly suggest you try one out before you commit to buy one. The TST may be great for Silhouette shooting and bench rest shooting, but I donít like them for hunting. This is a personal preference thing and opinions certainly vary on the matter.

Accuracy is a toss-up. The weights are all similar. The stocks are different.

How will you use it?...Tom

The 1710 HB is probably what you want. (and it is heavier than a 1712,with a different balance. Not a gun for much else other than bench imo)
The 1712 would be more of a general purpose gun, and there is something to be said for toting something less heavy, even if bench use is your primary desire.)

If a gun is not for much else other than bench, is it still considered a sporter?

I like Sporters on a bench because they are more challenging to shoot well.

Benchrest stocks, heavy guns, two ounce triggers, and fancy rests don't necessarily make guns more accurate, they make them easier to shoot accurately by reducing the human involvement.

Those 1710HBs are beasts and limited in application as a result, and not much lighter than match rifles. Which is why I prefer standard barrels.

OP I'd get whatever weight you prefer, probably with a Classic stock...Tom

Thanks again to all the help. I have been looking at Champions Choice. Is there a better place to buy from?

As Anschutz458 said above call the guys at Anschutz directly. I worked with Brian to buy my 1903. And IIRC, you can get a discount on buying ammo though them too.

Yes, call Brian at Anschutz, he's the bomb! I ordered 3 rifles from Brian, and he assisted on another rifle from them, total 4 rifles.
