Thanks Kev, (my name too). I'm sure we have many mutual buds from the silly crowd. My finest Annies are the customs that LeRoy Barry did for me. I think I have about 5 of those. I started out collecting the old 54s but to tell the truth it got a little boring because they were kind of all the same. That's when I discovered that little company out in Oregon. My Kimbers are my pride and joy. I'm sure glad I didn't pay what they all are going for today..

I absolutley agree with you, there is not such a wide variety of 54 sporters. I have tried to diversify my 54 sporter collection as much as possible and am now mainly considering different calibers. The Walther KKJ is a rifle that I consider to be of the same quality.

Have you ever scoped the KKJ, and how does it compare to the 54s for accuracy ? Is that double set trigger adjustable, or easy to use ? Thanks.

The KKJ is a quality rifle made to the same standards as an Anschütz 54. The accuracy is excellent at less weight.

KKJ stands for KleinkaliberJagd, small bore hunting rifle. This is what it was designed for and this is what it is best at.

I just gifted mine to my youngest son. May he not let the squirrels escape!

Forgive my ignorance, but what exactly is that rifle on the very bottom?

With the exquisite dark wood and stainless barrel? I assume it is aftermarket, but it is one of the most beautiful guns I have ever seen. Could someone tell me exactly what it is, and if it is possible to buy it, LOL.

That stock is amazing. I can't wait to see the final product. I hope you bump this thread to show it off when you're finish. I wish I had the skill to make something that beautiful.

Wow! Some of these 54's with factory wood were the reason that I had to find some nice wood for mine. Mine was one of the plainest pieces of wood that I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing

Man, some of these stocks are unreal. Being new to Anschutz, I am trying to understand how one acquires such a beautiful stock.

Do you have to order meister grade? Or does that even assure you of it? Almost requires hand picking.
