New 1710 HB arrived



Log in to see fewer ads
I picked it up today. The wood is decent. Itís not lottery wood, but Iím happy.

The trigger is on the heavy side with a pull of around 2lbs 8 oz and has some creep. Iíll need to change the springs and adjust the sear engagement.
The factory test target is decent too with no flyers.

Iím very excited to take it to the range and see how it shoots.

Quick question: The rifle came with 4 filer screws for the holes drilled on the receiver. Do you use them or just leave the holes empty? Iím going to use a dovetail mount, so I wonít be using those holes.

I'd put the screws into the holes, perhaps with a tiny bit of blue Loctite or varnish to keep them from working their way out. Mainly aesthetic, but also to keep the screw-hole threads from rusting.

Thanks. Do I need to use purple loctite on those screws? If not, it doesn't sit flush and keeps going down until it hits the bolt.

Yes, purple thread locker would be fine (as would blue). If it were me, I'd clean the screw holes in the receiver and the filler screws with a little alcohol or other solvent to remove all grease and then put a drop of thread locker on the screws and turn them in until they are just flush with the receiver surface. The thread locker will keep them tight and in place, but will still permit their easy removal.

The correct filler screws will have a slight shoulder on the top that only allows the screw to seat at flush. I have never needed to put thread locker on these small screws. Just snug up and forget.

The better ones have a slight shoulder, but all that I've used,as well as those provided with Anschutz guns, do not. I've never had a problem with them backing out or working their way down on any gun.

[QUOTE=kevin1;11454587]I picked it up today. The wood is decent. It’s not lottery wood, but I’m happy.

The wood looks nice, to me.
The test target on the other hand.....not so much.
Hopefully it will do better than that for you.
Looks like about 3/4 to an inch at 50 meters with some vertical stringing.
Otherwise , a real pretty gun.

T.S.

Thanks guys.

Yeh, I think I got lucky with the wood. Especially since I bought this unseen and without paying any premium for a better wood. I suppose if the wood was any better, they would handpick it and sell it as a Meister Grade.

I removed the trigger spring and adjusted the sear. Without a spring, the trigger breaks at a crisp 12 oz and passes the bump test. It's nice. I'll keep it like this.
I put the plug screws with purple Loctite.
Mounted a Leupold VX3 6.5-20 EFR in Leupold mounts.
Torqued both action screws to 25lbs/inch (from factory the torque was very light)
I did notice that the action screws are now hex screws which is a welcomed upgrade.

Next step is to run a few hundred rounds of SK+ to break-in the gun and do a function test.

I just measured the factory test target. Itís 0.568" edge to edge. C to C that would be 0.368" (if you subtract 0.2). Thatís pretty good for 10 shot group at 55 Yards and without any lot testing. What I really like is that, as you noted, the group is vertical. So, with a little bit of ammo and torque testing I can see that group shrink dramatically.
