NEW Anschutz Match 54.30 ...The Evolution



Log in to see fewer ads
Coming soon to an Anschütz dealer near you!

I had the pleasure of seeing this first hand at the IWA show last month in Germany. They had it tucked away behind closed doors.
The new Match 54.30 is the next generation of the legendary ANSCHÜTZ Match 54 barreled action.

Email below arrived this morning from Anschutz along with the first released photos.


Greetings,

This past March at the IWA fair in Nuremberg, Germany, we debuted our newly designed Smallbore Match Rifle; the 54.30.

Today we would like to present to you some detailed information about this newly designed match rifle.

Our new Match 54.30 is a considerable evolution of the legendary ANSCHÜTZ Match 54 barreled action.

The new smallbore Match 54.30 action distinguishes itself by following items:

- Basis for the new rifle is the well known and reliable ANSCHÜTZ Match 54 action.
- The loading port was moved 30mm rewards and was reduced in size by 18%.
- These changes increases the stiffness of the receiver.
- The closer location of the loading port allows for less movement when in position and an overall improvment in shooter ergonomics.
- To accomodate the closer location of the loading port, the bolt and the firing pin were reduced in length by 30mm.
- The weight of the firing pin was also reduced, thus resulting in velocity increase of the firing pin and a shorter lock-time.
- The overall accuracy has been improved by a newly designed ANSCHÜTZ Match chamber.
- Unlike match actions in the past, the new Match 54.30 features a threaded receiver and barrel connection. This change removes stresses in the chamber area and further increases accuracy.
- The new Match 54.30 can be installed into all available stocks which fit with the ANSCHÜTZ round match actions such as the 1907 or 1913.
- Like other ANSCHÜTZ products, the Match 54.30 features a maintenance - friendly and long lasting overall construction.
- Very competitive pricing.

Additional details about the ANSCHÜTZ Match 54.30 are included in the enclosed attachement.

If you have any further questions, please feel free to contact us through our website or dealer network.

Match 54.30 "We Are Rimfire."

Best regards

Now THAT is interesting! Maybe some research has shown that all those advantages of a precisely pressed and pinned barrel are not such an advantage after all...and a new match chamber...methinks the BR crowd is having some influence...or maybe Steve B.?? No mention of improved chambering cams, though.

I guess the downside is all new bolt parts and no interchangeability.

I'm sure Steve will chime in sooner or later and give some more technical insight. Steve showed it to me at IWA, he was pretty excited about the rifle, and rightfully so.

Will be interesting to see how it stacks up against Bleiker and G+E Racer. From what I understand, initial testing has exceeded expectations.

Keeping up with Bleiker and Walther, both of which have shorter bolt throws. Looks very nice, and I love those slim, Precise stocks. The up side of Anschutz stocks as opposed to Walther is adjustments only require one size of Allen wrench. Also looks like a 22mm sight at the end of that bloop tube.

Thanks for that info, Brad. It is indeed big news for rimfire shooters. Perhaps the biggest departure is the threaded receiver/barrel junction (echoing Teddy Bear Rat here). Do you know whether (or when) Anschutz plans to put this new action into their sporting line--the 1700 series?

Not sure if or when we will see it in the 1700 series.

The threaded barrel is very unique. I wonder why the break in the threading? That is what caught my eye. Also curious as to the barrel thread/pitch and if the barrel section of the action was increased or decreased? If the ID wasn't changed, then does that open the door for threading of actions when aftermarket tubes are put on? Also due to the shiny look...did they change the action metal?

Anschutz 54.3

Welcome to the site NordicMarksman!
Good of you to share your info. w. the guys on the site here about the new Annie. It has a lot going for it w. some good improvements.
I passed your info along locally w. my fellow 22BR shooters at Petitcodiac . They're impressed, and wondering who will be the first to show up at one of our matches.

What am I missing?

Beauty is really small groups, a bank vault "feel", and a quality finish (in that order for me)....I am intrigued.
