Anschutz 1710



Log in to see fewer ads
Does any one know if 2000 was the first year for a 1710 HB stainless? I'm looking at one just listed on gun broker. Beautiful condition and nice fiddle back wood. Would a first year 1710 command a premium over a later one? Thanks

No. Things that might command a premium are appearance, accuracy, and cycling operation.

A stainless barrel to many is less desirable...Tom

Is the stainless barrel less desirable because of a notion of less accuracy, or is it because of the two tone "pinto" look of the gun? In Winchester rifles especially pre 64 model 70's and 1890's a stainless is a huge plus. Does Anschutz charge more for a stainless barrel versus a carbon steel?

I don't know much about Anschutz but from years of shooting lead bullets, SS barrels are easier to get a smooth inside finish and very seldom lead like Chromoly.

Zero premium for first year.
Zero connection to Winchester values.
I don't recall if a premium was charged for them back in the day. I had one, but it was mostly about having a gun with a different look.
It appears that current mfg has an extra charge.

The stainless barreled rifles were slow sellers and when discontinued the remaining stock went to CDN Investments for liquidation sales. The 54 action rifles sold under $1000. It was a great opportunity to buy an anschutz at a great price.

Stainless barrels are technically superior to chromolly but didnít sell.

Seems like everything but all blued 22 lr 54 action sporters ended up at CDNN. 17m2s, 17 hmrs. 22 hornets, and 22 mags.

The first stainless barrelled 1710 DHB's I saw down here appeared in 2010 and were around for a few years afterwards. 1710's in general aren't big sellers in Aus. simply because most rim fire shooters aren't prepared to pay the asking price

Now that I have read the listing more closely and scanned all the pictures it turns out this gun is a Meister Grade. What is the premium for a Meister Grade over a regular 1710? The gun does have beautiful fiddle back wood.

If you're looking for an uncommon 1710 DHB, you need to find one of these

Additional cost when new was about $200.

The premium now is whatever someone is willing to pay.
Whatever a gun sells for, is a very broad range, often depending on who might be in the market at that point in time.


I believe that gun is a Meistergrade, but nice wood isn't a guarantee that it was considered one when new. Only the box label or the existence of ""Meistergrade" on the triggerguard ((only some years when that was done) confirms it.
Nice regular grades exist as do mediocre Meisters. I'd pay more for a nice standard that an unappealing Meister. (over the years, I owned about a dozen Meisters)

I looked on the Anschutz website and they have a few Meister grade 1710's. They are priced a thousand more than a regular 1710. The days of a $200 dollar premium for a Meister Grade are over for a new gun. If you have a Meister Grade in excellent shape you may need to rethink what it's worth.
