Here's Mine



Log in to see fewer ads
O.K., you wanted me to show you my Annie......well here it is, brand new unfired. I just picked it up about 3 hours ago. Stopped on the way home to get a pizza for myself and my wife. The first thing I did was clean the bore and it was dirty. The scope is a new Weaver T-24 with a 1/2 moa dot. The total cost with shipping for everything was $1903.22 that includes the rifle,scope and rings but does not count 2 cases of Wolf M.T. Tomorrow is my day at the range I will be there from 10:30 in the morning till at least 4:00 in the afternoon. I will get another picture in natural sunlight, it will show the wood better. Woody

Next Day

Went to the range today and the Anschutz is no loner unfired, it is a veteran and performed as expected, here is a new pic and the first target of the career of this rifle.

That was a fun day I even got to tickle Annie's trigger

Anschutz 1813 w/ Unertl 36X

My first picture of my first annie[IMG][/IMG]
While not as elegant as Grace Kelly, nor as beautiful as Audrey Hepburn, nonetheless a couple of classic beauties.

Anschutz target

5 shots 50 yds (USBR target, inside green circle is 1/2 inch), Lapua Superclub[IMG][/IMG]
For 3.60 a box, this stuff is extremely accurate in my 1813, have been getting some one hole 4 shot groups (almost round hole !)
And to dispel the "myth" of barrel-mounted scope having adverse effect on barrel harmonics, this combo is as accurate as , if not more accurate than a receiver-mounted scope/rifle combo, as evidenced by the target (remember this stuff is not $13 a box! ).
I have to thank Brian J., who suggested that I should try a barrel-mounted scope, as he has a couple that shot exceptionally well.

My 1413 w/2" Unertl. They don't get much better than this.



And how well can it do? Here's a favorite pattern at 50 yards, using Eley Benchrest Gold, firing from a sandbag, not even a proper benchrest.



And that wasn't a lucky pattern. If the wind isn't up, Annie will do this time after time.

Great minds think alike!
I have seen you web page. If I recall, it was an Unertl 16x and you were testing some other ammo off the back of an ATV w sand bag rest. And the previous owner put that gold plate on the foreend of the stock to distinguish his gun from the rest.Have you compared the accuracy w a receiver-mounted scope vs a barrel-mounted one?
I was planing to do it, but never did try because the unertl shot so well and the favorable shooting conditions did not last long.

Yep, that's me. You wouldn't believe the hits that bullet test page gets... hope to add a SMLE trainer to my .22 pages soon.

No, I've never tried a receiver mounted scope, either. Just don't see a reason to take the Unertl off. Crystal clear, and it doesn't come off center. I pulled Annie out the other day, hadn't fired it since last fall, and it's been jostled around in the gun safe. Set it on the sandbag, first shot dead center. Right where I left it last fall.

By contrast, I have a decent Leupold on a .17hmr, and it does come off center on occasion. Very good scope, but it's not an Unertl.

Wink Not so Pretty Annie

Well, with all of the lovely Annies in previous posts, wasn't sure I really wanted ya'll to see my Annie in this condition.
But with any luck, these 'before' pics will turn into a really nice 'after' rifle.

Most of the rust has been removed with little affect on the bluing, the stock has been completely stripped and finish sanded,
checkering of the stippled areas is underway.
Not sure what caused the damage on the stock, but looks like teeth marks, maybe a dog? Might end up calling it 'dogbone'.

A short range trip revealed that the Annie's heart is pure gold, shot like a champ!

Wulkyrie,
Yep, I think it's a 1407 based on some research done here on RFC. Date on barrel is 1969.

Need to get some new action screws and a few other parts to bring the stock back to vintage condition, but the barrel and action seem to be in great shape (just a little exterior rust to deal with.)
