Great info, thanks for all the hard work. I got my first Anschutz last year and I love it.

Roy PS I had to quit smoking to get it and it was the best thing I ever did.

Because there is no mod for the anschutz forum. We are working on changing that, then this will become a sticky

Do a search here..........there are several threads on this subject. Also look on the barrel where it attaches to the receiver on the left side. In between the proof marks there should be two numbers.........that is the date. This sort of dating seems to have started in 1962. Earlier than that it is by guess. my first 54 was without a date.

Maybe? Hopefully someone with a newer rifle will respond.

I'd have said 1978 just from the serial no., but "HI" confirms it.

I have just came back from another forum, a poster had the same designation and the reply came back 1978. Unless Anschutz omitted either the E or the F.
Also,I wonder what the X at the end of the serial number means????

They started at A=0, and the X on the serial number means you better hope you do not need a new firing pin for it! What it actually means is that it is a 16xx or transitional model, for which Anschutz have limited parts for the bolt which changed at that time from the wing to the side safety. There have been a couple of threads lately about this issue.

I went on the Anschutz site and found this:
Question:
Does ANSCHÜTZ give information on the production year of firearms?

Answer:
We need a lot of time to determine the age of a firearm with the help of the serial number. This is the reason why we only give this information to authorities or for a fee. However, every firearm owner can determine the approximate age of his gun with the help of the proof house stamp on the barrel of our firearms. The production years mentioned below are only approximate values and only mirror the common procedure representative for the referring period. Exeptions are possible. It might therefore be that even after the year 1968 there is only the production year imprinted on the barrel but no code.

Various proof test stamps (approximate year)

Up to approx. 1958 only the proof test stamp and the kind of ammunition was imprinted on the barrel.

From approx. 1958 to approx. 1968 apart from the proof test stamp also the last two digits of the referring year were imprinted on the barrel.

Since approx. 1968 the year of manufacture is coded. The code for determining the age is as follows:
0=A; 1=B; 2=C; 3=D, 4=E; 5=F; 6=G; 7=H; 8=I/J; 9=K
The year of proof testing is described by the last two digits of a year, i. e. that a firearm with the letters AF was officially proof tested in the year 2005 (05).

If you nevertheless need our help to determine the age of your ANSCHÜTZ rifle or pistol we will render this information for a fee. Please fill in the form below for this purpose.

Age of LaserPower rifles
Since the end of 2006 the installation date (date of assembly of the LaserPower rifle) is marked on the stock mentioning the month and the year.
Hope this info helps with the nonstuck sticky! and it makes my Match 54 born in 1978.
Thanks for ya'lls help
Roy
