Model 54, I need hrlp



Log in to see fewer ads
I have a model 54 match, 1962 was the year built. I need someone to tell me, what I have to do, to remove the front sight, really not the sight, but the dovetailed lug that the sight goes on. So I can install a tuner on the barrel. Thank you, Jerry

sight

Up until about 1961 the dovetail was milled into the barrel (part of the barrel) which means it can't be removed.
If you have a dovetailed block that the sight clamps on it is held on by two screws on the top, just unscrew them.
I had a 62 and it used the removeable block but yours may not.

Sight

The block on the end of my barrel does not have set screws. I am hoping someone can tell me how to remove it, or someone that can do it for me.

As stated above, the dovetail is integral with the barrel. The only way to remove it is to grind it off.

Any good machine shop can Mill it off and clean it up to make ready for a Tuner, I would think $50.00 or so, 1/2 hour job........However......

My Anschutz 1411 Match 54 is a 1961 with the same style barrel and my opinion is that the extra mass out there at the muzzle end is why my gun shoots consistently in the Middle .200's and very often in the .100's occassionally sub .100 3 shot groups, those are all center to center measured groups.......Lapua Center X and SK Rifle Match.....

***
that extra mass is acting as a Tuner and you can buy some cheap lead tape from 3/8" to 1/2" wide in varying thickness from .020 to .070 thickness (HomeDepot, Lowes) and wrap just behind the sight to add tuning weight......for experimentation.




This target ended up scoring 247-2X using an official Plug on the close ones....

Hope the info helps

1962 Anschutz model 54 match regular weight barrel

The front sight appears to be on a band (definitely NOT milled into the barrel). The heavy barreled versions were milled, but the regular weight versions were not. I would suspect that it is glued on, or pressed. You might head it up and try to turn. If I were going to set a tuner on a barrel, I would get something other than a 1962 Anschutz. Firing pins seem to be scarce for this gun. I'd get a much later version where parts are still available. I intend to shoot my 1962 Anschutz just the way it is.

Stephen,

After eight years, he might already have found the answer.
