model 1712 recoil pad



Log in to see fewer ads
Finally bought a model 1712, shoots nice small groups, I have a couple of complaints about this rifle that cost this much, First I wish Anschutz would of used a rubber butt pad, and second is it did not come with filler screws for the scope base holes.
Do any of you have any suggestions for a rubber butt pad. possibly from Anschutz ,, nothing on their web site. and are the filler screws metric. and the thread size?

The scope base holes are 6-48.

For a rubber pad, you're limited to a slip on shotgun style, or fitting a Pachmyer, which does take some skill.
I'd rather have the factory plastic, as sooner or later, the Pachs go bad.

I thought about installing a Pachmyer,,but was wondering if any Anschutz Sporters ever came with rubber pads from the factory.

I don't think there is a ready-to-go pad for the sporters. Long a pet peeve of mine on a rifle north of $2K, and a nod to Cooper.

I installed the same Pachmayr Basketweave pad Cooper uses...Tom

1712 butt pad. I have this problem with several guns and found anti slip tape works great. It comes in roll and can be cut to size and is a similar material that is used on skate boards etc. It can be removed with out any damage and new piece installed.

Yes, I bought a new rifle last year, same thing, no filler screws. When I inquired about it to ANA, I was told, "yes, that's the way they come now". So I asked, what was next, shipping without action screws. At that price, I don't expect to get a rifle that needs assembly! Yeah, I was probably a bit of a jerk about it, but it just angered me more than it should. Anyway, a few days later, the screws arrived in the mail.

I have an Anschutz 1712 Silhouette and while I enjoy the rifle very much I donít think I would do it again. I was very happy with the CZ455 that I had prior to this 1712. I would just go out and pick up a new CZ457 for shooting silhouette. I am a AA shooter and to be honest a CZ would probably net me the same scores.

I like my 1712 very much but they cost a lot of money to have ejection issues like mine does. The CZ magazines are very well made too.

I do not have any intentions of getting rid on my 1712 but I donít think I would replace it either if something happened to it.

Try some Eley ammo

It ejects great out of my 1712.

My 54.18 MSR came with a rubber pad from the factory. Not exactly a sporter. Both my 1700 FWT and my 1712 from Champs choice have rubber pads on the McMillan stocks.

Same here. Anschutz Fibergrain stocks also come with rubber butt pad. All these stocks are made by McMillan but commisionned by Anschutz.

Maybe Anschutz felt that the recoil wasnít significant enough to warrant a rubber pad.

My FN Safari in 458 Win Mag comes with a factory pad, but it needs it.

I'm a bit confused. Are open sights even an option on a 1712? Isn't this model meant for scope installation only? If this is correct why would someone need filler screws?

I personally think rubber butt pads cheapen the look of a quality rimfire. With all my rimfire shooting, including competition and thousands of rounds shooting sage rats, I've never wished I had one.

There's currently a 1727 for sale with an absolutely "to die for" Canyon Creek stock package that I would have bought months ago...but it has a rubber pad on it. It's still for sale...months later.
