Couldn't Pass on This One



Log in to see fewer ads
They keep throwing out the bait and I keep biting:

LGS had this one at a price I just couldn't pass up based on what the new ones are selling for. Only a couple minor marks on the stock the rest of the rifle appears in great condition. It doesn't appear to have been used very much but maybe the previous owner just gave it tender care. No box or paperwork but very pleased with the transaction. We will see how it performs at the range.

Anschutz 1710 D HB - Single stage trigger, 23" barrel, Talley 1" Rings, (1) 5R Mag

My additions - Nikon Monarch 3 4-16x42 SF scope and a Montana Sling.

It looks like a very good find. I would love to find one like that. I've been searching for a 1717 for awhile. I have three 1517s in different configurations, but have wanted to try a 1717. Looks like you found a dandy! Thanks for the pictures

The sling is a Sinclair Manufacturing Montana Sling - Midway USA usually has one of the better prices on these. Black or Brown - 1" or 1 1/2" for width.

I like them as the sling is quickly adjustable and holds.

Brownells has another offering - the Quick-set Latino Sling that is similar that I have on my Steyr Zephyr II's.

Looks a lot like my 1422 D. You just can't beat the Anschutz rifles. Anschutz is the only rifle that still has a beautiful trigger and they are very accurate. Nice find RJF

I found (3) Savage magazines on eBay (that supposedly would work in the 1710 ) which arrived today and they seemed to function okay . . . at least they each cycled (5) rounds through action. They were a little more difficult to release & remove the mag then the Anschutz one that came with the rifle. I might polish the edges to see if that helps. I obviously need to do a live fire test of all (3) as well. At least I have a backup in case the original has a problem.

While I was cycling the rounds . . . I was impressed as to how smooth the action on this 1710. It is just butter smooth. I thought it might be better than my Match 54 MS but they are both very smooth.

As to the price I paid - $1,425 plus tax which I felt was a reasonable price based on what I see other used 1710's sell for and especially the price of new ones.

Fall cleanup has kept me busy but plan to get to the range early next week.

Ho Lee Chit!

I didn't know a sporter-type Annie would be quite that high! I would've guessed about half that but I haven't kept up with the market on them.

The good news is you did get the HB version!

ETA: I saw MSRP on a new one is in the $2,300 range, so you did indeed get a good price. Wow, I had no idea Sporters were now in that price range.

I think non-enthusiasts are simply unaware of the market for Anschutz 1700-series rifles. I recently bought a late wing-safety 1710 with what I would describe as AAA fiddleback figure. It’s yet another I bought from my buddy who’s struggling with the care of his ailing wife. Another acquaintance from work really wanted an Anschutz .22, so two birds with one stone, right? I wasn’t interested in really flipping it for some extra cash, just helping two people out, so I bought it and sold it for $900 (!). The $900, BTW, was what my buddy paid years ago and what he asked for the rifle.
Here’s the deal. There were a few safe dings in the finish of the stock; definitely minor and not from field use. So, the guy who bought it says. “Man, this rifle has had a hard life. I don’t know that it’s worth $900, just for a .22.” I was very close to tearing up his check and telling him to pound sand, that I’ll just flip it and make a quick $600-$700 on it. He just shook his head and said he would just live with the poor condition. Now he wants me to give him some Talley bases I told him I had. I doubt I’ll ever sell him another rifle.

You're more patient than I am at this stage of life. I would have walked away that guy-no sale ever happening ( or kicked back money to your bud at the price it really deserved.) Keep your rings!
I should have walked from a few deals as well. Guys screwing up their face on a great deal that I offered, as I didn't have the box, or outer shipping box, or some such nonsense, but I too, was focused on the end result-moving it along ,and thinking about something else.
