Anschutz Models ---Sticky---- Mods??? Can We Sticky This??



Log in to see fewer ads
Hello folks, I am trying to compile information on the Anschutz line of rifles so we can turn it into a sticky. Please if you have information to ad post it, and I will copy and paste it into this post so its stays at the top and makes it easy for folks to find. If you need to be recognized as the author please indicate that and I will make sure you get the recognition.

We still need information on triggers, sights, and any other holes you see that need filling please do so.

I will continue to update this first post as information is added


Folks, if you don't mind kindly let us know if this list is helpful, as we would like to know if its worth maintaining and updating. Thanks


A BIG thank you goes to Prairiewalker! as the following spreadsheets were compiled and shared by him

This list has been updated. If you find information that is missing please compact Prairiewalker so he can include it in these charts as he is compiling this information for the sticky.














This link is a great starting point as it lists many of the models and their features.

Here is a quick guide to the Match 54 target-line numbers: copied from Tim Slater's Post

14XX - The rifle was made between 1954 and 1980. Rifles made 1954 -1976 have the wing safety bolt, and a straight handle. Rifles made from 1977-1980 have a trigger safety, and conical bolt cap, plus a redesigned trigger and firing pin. Serial numbers end in an X. Handles were straightb in '77-78, and curved in '79-'80. '77-'80 vintage rifles are often called 16xx, or Transition-models, or X-Barrels to differentiate them.

18xx - The rifle was made between 1980 and 1987. The action/bolt/trigger is very similar to the 16xx, but with enough differences that bolts/triggers are not interchangeable.

19XX - The rifle was made in 1987 or after. The action is the same as the 18xx (bar one miniscule change). The foresight mounting switched from a dovetail block to grooves cut directly into the muzzle (now a slightly larger diameter to suit). the 1907 has a slightly shorter and lighter barrel than the 1913. The 1907 can also be found as a repeater, although extremely rare

XX13 - AKA The Supermatch. This is Anschutz's top of the line Olympic Free Rifle. It has a walnut thumbhole stock. The butt is adjustable for LOP via a thumbscrew, and height, and offset/cant after the late '60s. Post '73 the cheekpice has been adjustable. Barrel is 69cm long and about 24mm diameter.

XX11 - The Prone rifle, Made 1954 to about 2000. This had a broad, straight fore-end. It has the same heavy 69cm barrel as the XX13.

XX07 - 1954-1964- A Lightweight 9lb rifle.
1968?- Present - The UIT Standard, an 11lb rifle in a basic 3-P stock. The barrel is 66cm/26in and lighter than the XX11/XX13. The fore-end is deeper than the XX11 or XX13. Most XX07 for-ends are flush with the triggerguard and then taper up.

XX10 - 197? -2000ish, a cheaper version of the XX13. It has the same barrel but a different stock. The stock is beech, and the fore-end tapers like an XX07.

XX09 - 1960s - A cheaper version of the 1413, without the LOP adjustment.
1970s-2000 an XX07 barrel in an XX10 stock.

XX08 - 1965-196? Anschutz's first UIT standard rifle, for reasons unknown the model number was changed to 1407.
1970s- Running Target rifle.

1912 - 1997-Present, a scaled down 1913 with a 1907 barrel to meet the 6.5kg weight limit for the ISSF Ladies Sport rifle rules.

I already started this and nobody seems to want to add to it. That one link is just a list of models. No other specifics, which is what everyone wants. Nothing new here.

Don't abandon the thread. People interested in an Anschutz need some consolidated information. I have copied a post by Tim Slater which has a very good general explanation that is easy to understand. Since the Anschutz model identification attempt covers so many years and several changes in the way they identified their products, perhaps a sticky that would include blocks of information like Tim's below and Gizzy's which is posted in several threads, and any other block of accurate information would be the best that can be done.

From Tim:

Here is a quick guide to the Match 54 target-line numbers:

14XX - The rifle was made between 1954 and 1980. Rifles made 1954 -1976 have the wing safety bolt, and a straight handle. Rifles made from 1977-1980 have a trigger safety, and conical bolt cap, plus a redesigned trigger and firing pin. Serial numbers end in an X. Handles were straightb in '77-78, and curved in '79-'80. '77-'80 vintage rifles are often called 16xx, or Transition-models, or X-Barrels to differentiate them.

18xx - The rifle was made between 1980 and 1987. The action/bolt/trigger is very similar to the 16xx, but with enough differences that bolts/triggers are not interchangeable.

19XX - The rifle was made in 1987 or after. The action is the same as the 18xx (bar one miniscule change). The foresight mounting switched from a dovetail block to grooves cut directly into the muzzle (now a slightly larger diameter to suit).

XX13 - AKA The Supermatch. This is Anschutz's top of the line Olympic Free Rifle. It has a walnut thumbhole stock. The butt is adjustable for LOP via a thumbscrew, and height, and offset/cant after the late '60s. Post '73 the cheekpice has been adjustable. Barrel is 69cm long and about 24mm diameter.

XX11 - The Prone rifle, Made 1954 to about 2000. This had a broad, straight fore-end. It has the same heavy 69cm barrel as the XX13.

XX07 - 1954-1964- A Lightweight 9lb rifle.
1968?- Present - The UIT Standard, an 11lb rifle in a basic 3-P stock. The barrel is 66cm/26in and lighter than the XX11/XX13. The fore-end is deeper than the XX11 or XX13. Most XX07 for-ends are flush with the triggerguard and then taper up.

XX10 - 197? -2000ish, a cheaper version of the XX13. It has the same barrel but a different stock. The stock is beech, and the fore-end tapers like an XX07.

XX09 - 1960s - A cheaper version of the 1413, without the LOP adjustment.
1970s-2000 an XX07 barrel in an XX10 stock.

XX08 - 1965-196? Anschutz's first UIT standard rifle, for reasons unknown the model number was changed to 1407.
1970s- Running Target rifle.

1912 - 1997-Present, a scaled down 1913 with a 1907 barrel to meet the 6.5kg weight limit for the ISSF Ladies Sport rifle rules.

And from Gizzy's earlier post:

How about a Sticky to list Anschutz letter designations???

D = Single stage trigger
E = Single loader
G = Barrel thread
HB = Heavy barrel
KL = Folding leaf sight
FL = Fast acquisition sight
L = Left hand version
MP = Multi Purpose
R = Repeater
Silh.= Silhouette

There is certainly a need for some kind of sticky given all the posts asking for information on these fine rifles.

I think we need to draft Tim, his explaination was easy to understand along with adding the letter codes it is a starting point for the uninformed (like me).

Thanks Pastprime for the information. I added it to the original post along with the Anschutz weblink that a following poster posted. If the information keeps coming in we will have a great collection of information. Please encourage others to contribute and we will soon have the best source for information going. Thanks for the links Berock, they are posted.

Weird, those links don't go where they are supposed to... They all just go to Hunting in German.... What the..?

I'll try this again:

Hunting: http://jga.anschuetz-sport.com/index...u=23&sprache=1

Biathlon: http://jga.anschuetz-sport.com/index...=310&sprache=1

Target: http://jga.anschuetz-sport.com/index...=319&sprache=1

They seem to work in this post, but not up in the first post... Unless it was an edit -- and that's fine.
