New to me 190 picture heavy



Log in to see fewer ads
Found a very nice Anschutz 190 in Calmar Ab. Can.
The gentlemen said it's been in his cabinet for a while, as his eyes were failing him.
Wasn't much info given when purchased but, I would sure like to hear from anyone that could share some info.
I did some back reading on here and found very little on a non-marked C.I.L 190.
The grip had some nasty stains in the stock, so I made the decision and stained it with some Miniwax Ebony oil stain and sealed it with a BLO/Tung Oil mix.
Think the whole thing cleaned up rather nicely .
Not a clue how old she is or what peep sight that is either.
Anxious to hit the range and test her out.

That's a nice looking rifle and in very good condition.

Anschutz produced a rifle it called a Model 190. It seems indistinguishable from a late CIL Anschutz 190. The serial number on the rifle shown in the pictures suggests it's a mid-1970s model. It appears to have a 5057 trigger.

Later in the 1970s the 190 had a more sloping forestock and a 5094 trigger.

Interesting, seems very similar to a 1403 64 Match Rifle I have, mine has hand cut checkering on the pistol grip only, sight system seems almost identical. The trigger is exactly the same. They were available here in Aust in the 70's. Bought mine SH for my wife to shoot small bore target 3 position it was and still is superbly accurate . It has the standard Anschutz accessory rail on the bottom of the stock and adjustable butt plate .

Thx, hope it's a good shooter!
Our range is closed for a couple of weeks for maintenance.
Need to just head up on some crown land and test her.

While doing some back reading another member had some Red anodized turrets.
Do you think there are still available?

Hi look up UIT rail Wikipedia, also Nordic Marksman Anschutz 1903 MSR Silhouette, I have the 1903 MSR and my old 1403 is just as good grouping as it is ( with good ammo of course). Wish you all the best with your old annie and looks like you have done a good job with your restoration, I had to completely re-blue the barrel and remove all the old lacquer then oil finish my stock, must put a pic up one day
cheers ron

Thx Penage, Is that your rifle? I see what you're talking about.
It's more noticeable side by side.

Nice rifle. I had a CIL 190 back in 1969. Same rifle, really. At the time I paid about C$100 for it. Mine had plainer micro sights; different, smaller knobs and no sight tunnel. Mine was checkered in the pistol grip area. Enjoy your new acquisition.

I also had a 1969 vintage 190, though mine was the CIL version. Most of the ones that made their way to Canada are stamped CIL, though I've seen a few without the CIL stamp over the years.
There should be a series of letters/numbers and symbols on the left side of your barrel, just ahead of the action. They will tell you the year it was built.

I think it's definitely 1970 or newer, as that's when Anschutz generally switched to stippling on the stock rather than cut checkering.

Your rear sight is not the original that came new on the rifle, but a later version. Possibly a biathlon sight. Check the sight selection at Nordic Marksman, yours looks very similar to some they have.
The front sight also appears to be not the original, they came with the standard 18mm Anschutz globe sights. A lot of these rifles have had the sights removed and sold separately, they're worth a fair bit on their own. Then, the next owner goes looking for sights to replace them.

They're nice rifles, were designed to meet Canadian sporting rifle rules, part of which is a minimum trigger pull of 1 kg (2.2 lbs). The trigger will probably go a bit lighter, it's something you'd have to experiment with.

They are capable of shooting quite well, often 1 moa or better with the right ammo.

Thx for all the info!
Third pic I posted top left corner are the only other markings on the barrel, beside the 'Model 190 22cal LR. There is no date stamp.

One of our Cdn forum members sent me this link in regards to the Red Anodized sight knobs.

ahg-REAR SIGHT KNOB-SET
Hopefully that is what I'm looking for.

These are a bit closer to home, but show as being out of stock.
Give them a call, they can probably order a set for you.

Thx Chilly,
I had two emails this morning, one from Uwe Anschütz in Germany giving info on rear sight and knobs, the other was from Brad from Nordic Marksman Inc.
Called, spoke with Brad, red knobs are on there way to Canada.

Awesome people,
