New ANA Compeition series?

Just noticed this yesterday. 1710 actions with 20” SS heavy threaded barrels, 5119 (new?) 2 stage trigger, match chambers, target crowns, 5 stock options (1 walnut option).

Anyone hear anything about these?

News to me.

...Is there a reason for scalloping the top of the receiver?
I've owned dozens of 1700 series guns. They were fine just the way they were.

They've been doing that on 64s since they went to the larger receiver circa 2009. This is the first I've seen it on a 54.

I have never seen why and I don't like it either...Tom

It looks like they finally are making a lightweight 54 Sporter trigger:


Trigger: New 5119 Two Stage Trigger

Trigger Weight: Adjusted to 6.35 oz. (180g)

Trigger Weight Range: 4 to 7.5 oz. (110 to 215g)

The 1710 HB XLR isn't a brand new configuration. In 2020 these rifles were available in Canada with the 5109/2 two stage trigger. They were available in different colors. They are still listed (unavailable though) on the Nordic Marksman website. https://www.nordicmarksman.com/1710-HB-XLR.html

ANA still lists their 1710 XLR “Trainer” series, I guess there are a few refinements in the new series?

Indeed. The ANA 1710 Competition has a stainless steel barrel, an "optimized match chamber" (whatever that may mean), a threaded muzzle and a rail. The trigger has a lighter pull weight than the 1710 HB XLR.

For me I wish it had a dovetail for a front sight. I guess you would have to add an extension tube to get a front sight.

I’ve never tried a rifle with an extension tube. The idea sort of bothers me. I know people use them and it obviously does not reduce accuracy, but I keep visualizing the expanding gases in the extension tube and thinking it must have some impact even though it seems like it doesn’t.

Ken,

I've shoot with an extension tube since 2005, and can attribute no liss of accuracy to a tube. I know of one shooter who complained of a tube causing poor grouping*; I suspect it was the mass of the tube upsetting barrel harmonics. Most tubes have a bore nearly the diameter of the rifle, so there is room for the gas to pass the bullet. I do believe that tubes should be cleaned after shooting, so the bore is not constricted by layers of crud.

*He ended up making a weird see-through-bayonet like extension.this contraption is now mounted onto a Grunig with its factory tube.

Hopefully the 5119 triggers will be available as a separate item...

I have one with the Kelby stock. I have not shot it yet. I did have it lot tested and one lot of R50 shot a one hole five shot group. It is a real nice rifle.

I saw this comment on another board from someone who works for ANA…

What we did is essentially took a 54.30 chamber and throated it a little longer to have just a hair less bullet engraving. The regular 1710 chamber is a good chamber just a little looser than the match.
I think 99% of people would be happy with the regular 1710 chamber, but the comp bridges the gap between spotter and match gun accuracy.

A few questions about the Kelbly. Is the metal flake paint just silver or are there other colors as well? The pictures on ANA's website looks like there's purple or blue big dots mixed in with the silver. Maybe it's just reflection, my monitor, or my poor vision. Does the cheek riser go higher than what's in the pics? Are the stock surfaces pretty uniform or are they somewhat wavy? The pics appear a little bit wavy or uneven. Could just be reflection, monitor, or vision. Thanks.

These cost more than a Vudoo and CZ combined.

I spoke to Dave at ANA recently and he told me the new competition series is based on the 54.13 action along with a shorter barrel and a different trigger. as much as I want one the price is very steep. I have a vudoo on order that cost $800.00 less then what the GRS competition costs.
