Have been thinking about getting a 1913 br-50 benchrest model for shooting off a bench using a scope at 30 and 50 yards, for accuracy and stock choice do you think the 1913 br50 u7 would be a good choice?

Smile Anschutz 1913 BR-50 U7

I'm interested in seeing what the thoughts are on this. I am thinking this would be a great Rimfire F-Class Stock.

A good choice yes, best choice probably not. Make a list of how much you are thinking of spending, what kind of ammo you will need, what kind of rest you have, etc. Report back.

I have a 1913 in a BR-50 U7 stock. One difference, my 1913 is left handed. I had to cut a left hand bolt notch in the U7 stock. This stock is designed for free recoil, where the only part of your body that touches the rifle is your trigger finger. You could certainly use it with shoulder contact. It recoils straight back, so you can see where the shot went on the target without returning to battery. The standard slope stock, BR-50 (I forget the U number) recoils back and down, so after the shot you are looking at the target somewhere far above the POA. This is just my opinion, many BR shooters use a sloped butt stock. Most probably use a bungee cord to return the rifle to battery after the shot. Good luck in your decision.

Regards, Jim

If you have a very good and solid front rest, or better still a one-piece rest, it should be very close to as good a factory rifle as is currently available for use from the bench.

I had a 1907 with the U7 stock but a very good rest was not easily available. I grew to prefer the U2 stock.

The stock would help add to the performance of the rifle, but is not a direct source of making it more accurate. barrel and ammo will decide how accurate it will eventually be.
my current project rifle is in a factory 1411 stock with castoff and has recorded a 10-shot group at Lapua in Mesa, AZ of 11.86mm and this was done off a rest and not from the jig and vise. so the stock wasn't a critical factor on how, if it was in a dedicated BR stock , perhaps the group may have been smaller.

They also have the 1913 BR-50 U2, that may be a better choice.

Bridge builder. Not long ago, was looking at the Anschutz BR models. Thought the 1913 with a U7 was a excellent option. Lacks the threaded reciever of the 54.30 but comes with a heavier barrel.

Shoot a U7 style stock. Like the tracking and return to battery. No cast off simplifies the two piece rest geometry. All the small stuff seems to add up.

Bridgebuilder,

If you want simplicity on setting up your rest and want a rifle to track well from the get go. get the U-7
while my best shooting rifle is in an Edge style stock with a sloped rear, I spent a great deal of time getting my 1-piece rest to track extremely well. as was noted with the U-2 my POA goes up on recoil, but the rifle has very good RTB and the cross-hairs will be back on target.
