Which model should I consider?



Log in to see fewer ads
Sold my CZ 452 Varmint because I want something better, As I get older I want quality over quantity so I've decide to go with Anschutz. I want a 23 inch barrel (because I want it to be different from my 10/22), would prefer a threaded barrel, a single stage trigger and would like to keep the weight around 6-7 pounds and I'm planning to mount a scope on it because I'm getting old. It will used for small game and plinking.

All of the "wants" listed above could be set aside for the right rifle model except for weight and the mounting of a scope.

So now I'm asking for your help, those with experience with these rifle, please suggest models and features I might not have thought.

Thank you in advance for your input.

Mike

A 1712 with the 18 inch threaded barrel, not the standard barrel for this model.(which will have a two stage trigger)
Otherwise, weight will be an issue.

I started with a CZ 452 Varmint, then bought an Anschutz 1710, then an old 1411, then a couple of 64 action rifles. Each rifle needs to be tamed to get the best from it. I sold the 64s as they are a little too light for bench shooting. The 54s are good, but you just don't put ammo in it and pull the trigger and expect to shoot "X"s all the time. That just doesn't happen. All these rifles shoot well, but you are the one that has to make it do so. I'm glad I kept my CZ because it can hold it's own against the others. You might look at a Vudoo.

Same situation here, I went with a 1416 HB 23 inch, same weight with better balance. Good choice on my part.

Really enjoy mine shoots better than the shooter and not to heavy to pack around.

Buy a Vudoo. You will be better off and they cost less than a new Anschutz 54 action 22

Anschutz has a new rifle out, 1761, 20" or threaded 18", 18" is 6.35lbs and some where around $1400, it's improved ejection, center bolt lock studs for a shorter reciever so shorter throw and easy change barrel for caliber swap, the new line up is getting different stocks and different barrel sizes for user to build what they want, but not 100% sure when that is trickling down, something to think about

Did the OP not say they decided to go with an Anschutz?

Pretty much in the same situation as the OP a few weeks ago and I purchased an Anschutz 1712 with 18” threaded barrel 6lbs 4oz and I absolutely love it.

ANA might be wrong with their 6.4# weight for that 1710HB. I think they're heavier.

You might be right on that.

It’s in their Meister grade series. Worth a call if it is in the OP’s price range. Great looking rifle. I worked with Brian Curry at ANA when I chose my Anschutz and he was very pleasant to deal with and very helpful.

Yes that 1710 HB is more like 7lbs 10oz.

At least that's my current on mine
