Yes. The stock work and checkering were done in the mid-1980's in Southern California, and the action, a 1971 S-A 54, was only test fired until I acquired it a few years ago. Stockmaker was Englebert Olafsson, checkering by Mike Maxwell. I was told Olafsson was head of the Weatherby stockmaking department at one time, and also did work for private customers.

It doesn't get any better than that, made by artists that just happen to work on guns.

Here is my SA 54. I am keeping it unscoped until I can shoot at 50 yards with open sights (which won't be long )

There are some absolutely beautiful 54 sporters in this thread! I'm feelin' a bit envious at this point.

Nice!!! Is that a Zeiss and what mounts do you use? I cannot clearly make that out, I am so blinded by the beautiful stock and love the skeleton buttplate.

My 1720D (22 mag.). Purchased, as new, on this forum for a very reasonable price. Not a Meister Grade. I refinished the stock to show grain configuration, bedded it, and tweaked the trigger to a crisp 12 ozs.. Has been my truck gun for years, very accurate and has accounted for lots of critters.

Beaver Creek,

you must have a very nice truck to accommodate this fine rifle properly in its role as a truck gun!

Savage Anschutz Model 54 Sporter

Still haven't fired it, but will probably rectify that soon.

Nice older gun, does it say 1422 on it or 54 sporter? Have you checked the year of mfg?

Hi KB, it says Savage Anschutz Model 54 Sporter, and I'm not sure how to interpret the serial number and proof mark. Maybe you can? Have a look:
