The Oddballs Weatherby and Savage Anschutz



Log in to see fewer ads
When i was growing up I could never afford a Savage Anschutz. Wanted one really bad but no way was it going to happen. Well forty years later I own both a Weatherby and a Savage Anschutz. Thought it might be interesting to compare the two rifles. The Weatherby is 2008 model and was 800 dollars. The Savage is a 416 that cost me 199.00 last week. The Savage is a 1964 model. 44 years of separation!

They are very similar and very different at the same time. Both are 64 Actions with similar barrel contours. After changing out the spring in the Weatherby, the two guns have almost identical triggers. (1 pound on a digital trigger scalel).

I have taken lots of pictures of the two guns side by side. I will post some pictures. If there is interest I will post more.

MY question is where did you buy a 141 for a $199.00 Would you like your money back
After rereading your post I noticed you said the Savage/ Anschutz was a 416 are you sure it is not a 1416 also I think it is in a 141 stock still a nice price.

Just pulled it out of safe. Yep it is a 141. Was thinking of another project I am involved with. Bought the gun in Warrenton, MO. Thought it was a great deal!

On your Savage Annie does it have the "Black" trigger group that is not in the aluminum housing? I was wonderning if you could tell how it had been modified to get the pull weight down to 1 lb. My 1971 64 has the "Black" trigger group and will not go that low. Great deal on that Savage by the way and two fine looking Annies!

%%%%......now I'm really kicking myself where the sun don't shine.....

I had one of those Savage / Anschutz 141's, and let it go about 3 years ago for approximately the same $200.00 price on a trade-in deal on a Sig pistol.....

Now that I've gotten into rimfire bolt guns I really wish I hadn't of done that.....

I do not know what a black trigger group is?

I did take the rifle down when I brought it home. I did not pay much attention fo the trigger since it was already light and crisp. Sorry I did not look closer. It will be several days before I have time to look. One of my friends dad passed away last night and I am helping with that. The wood on the Annie er I mean the Weatherby is much much nicer.

This will take you to a new Anschutz 64 trigger:

All new Annie 64 trigger are variations of this one now. The old Annie 64 triggers are in a stamped metal housing and are totally black. At least the one in my 1971 version is. I do not know what years versions changed but I suspect your Savage Annie may be the old "black" trigger group.

Yes it is the black trigger group on the Savage

My new Annie's trigger looks like the one in the picture. I am more familiar with the Weatherby Annie because I put in the lightest trigger spring available.

I wonder how the Savage's trigger ended up so nice? Is that typical on older guns?

Mine I would guess is close to 2 lbs. and that's as low as it will adj. I am guessing maybe that the sear has been stoned on yours if it is in the 1 lb. range. This is the only 64 action I have owned from the 1970 time frame. I did own a 54 action from the late 60's that the trigger was in the 6 oz. range but I know it had been tuned and have no idea what it would have went down to by factory adjustments.
