Unhappy My MDT Chassis Boo Boo



Log in to see fewer ads
I jumped on a Black Friday deal without doing my research.
I was hoping that the chassis listed as 54 Match would fit my old 72 SA Sporter. I wanted to get it out of the near pristine factory furniture and not be so nervous about shooting it.

I got the shipment and things didn't turn out so well.
No-go on the 72.

My question is what does it fit? I don't want to misrepresent the chassis if I try to list it for sale and have someone suffer the same fate that I did.

It was a "factory seconds" buy, which I understood to be only cosmetically flawed. If it's not milled correctly I certainly want to know that as well.

Would've been a great deal if it had fit.

This is NOT a for sale listing. I'll toss it before I sell someone else a problem.

I just rechecked the site and they say - "Anschutz Match 54- compatible only with models 1710 and 1712"

If someone could confirm that this one looks right for those variants it would be great. I can measure or take additional photos as needed.

Target series and sporter series stocks aren't interchangeable. The receiver is the same diameter, but the bolt spacing, tang profile, and recoil lug differ.

The question is how different is a 72 SA Sporter from a 1710/1712?

The question is - from the photo and description given, does the chassis appear to be correct for Anschutz 1710/1712 actions?

MDT says it will fit the 1710/12. The 1710/12 has the same distance between the action screws as the chassis showed in the picture below. If it fits the 1710/12 then the question appears to remain if the 72 SA Sporter is different from the 1710/12. I don't know the answer to that question.

From the picture it does look like this should fit a 1710 HB. I measured my 1702 HB (17mach2) and the measurement look right. The wood stock inletting looks a little different from the chassis inletting, but nothing stood out to make me think it wouldn't fit. The spacing from front center of recoil lug to front screw hole looks right, and spacing between mounting screws looks right. This is my best guess based on the pictures.

Yes, it's significantly different.

- The front action screw position is completely different.

- The tang shape is different.

- The trigger group is a different shape.
