BR 50_U7 stock Question



Log in to see fewer ads
Looking around for a new stock for my Anschutz 54 model 1407 and came across this stock and was wondering if anyone had one and what they thought about it?

ahg Anschutz #BR50-U7 Benchrest Stock


Also been looking at Kelbly's and McMillan stocks.

It won't be relieved for the 1407 wing safety.

Glenn should chime in when he sees the thread. If memory serves, he did fit an older 1411 barrelled action ( with wing safety ) in a modern Anschutz BR50 stock without much of an issue.
Glenn, are you there ??

The BR 50 U7 stock is designed for barreled actions that have a side safety -- the 16xx, 18xx, 19xx barreled actions. It will work with 14xx barreled actions with the caveat that the bolt (wing) safety will not be operable unless some material is removed from the stock.

The 1407 barreled action will work with the BR 50 stock.

The BR 50 U7 stock is designed for free recoil shooting. As such it doesn't have a butt pad.



The BR 50 U2 stock is designed to be used against the shoulder. It has a butt stock and a slight bit of cast. (I don't remember if the U7 stock has any cast.)



As Gilbert notes, I have a 1411 and put its barreled action in a BR 50 U2 stock without a problem. I load only when ready to shoot so I don't use the bolt (wing) safety when shooting from the bench and as a result I did not bother modifying the stock.

Here's the 1411 barreled action in the Anschutz BR 50 U2 stock.



I had the BR 50 U7 stock on a 1907 barreled action. Comparing the two stocks I found I preferred the U2 stock.

Here's the 1907 BR 50 with the U7 stock.

Did you check Nordic marksman, FYI the prices listed are Canadian dollars if I am not mistaken.

Thanks for all your help guys !

Penage Guy,
Any particular reason you like the U2 stock better then the U7?

A free recoil-style stock is one that shouldn't be touched except for the trigger, whether it's operated by pinching the rear of the trigger guard and blade or only the blade. The rifle is sighted by adjusting the front rest which in turn requires a one that is adjustable with very fine control. I didn't have such a rest -- and still don't.

Although I adjust my rifle to be sighted as closely as possible before I touch it, I have found it more familiar but also efficacious to hold my rifle when shooting.

All the BR 50 rifles/stocks I have experience with came from Nordic Marksman. I understand they will ship to the US.

I have a 1913 in a BR50-U7 stock. I love it! But, I think it depends on how you intend to use it. I like it for shooting groups from the bench. The straight line U7 recoils straight back, cross hairs barely moving away from the POA. With a sloped U2 style stock, recoil will move the cross hairs way up from the POA. I guess if you keep the butt against your shoulder the upward movement would be less.

Good luck, Jim

In the factory stock, it seems to shoot good with a slight grip around the pistol grip and my thumb on top.
I don't put any pressure on the butt stock.

But in a different stock who knows !
