What model is this 64 action single shot with DST?



Log in to see fewer ads
There's a rifle recently posted on a site selling used rifles. It is described as a KK Junior Single Shot (KK is klein kaliber or smallbore). The unusual feature -- for North America at least -- is the double set trigger. The forestock appears to widen forward of the loading area. It appears to be an early 1960s rifle, no earlier than the late fifties, when the 64 action rifles first appeared.

Is it a 1402 or a 1403 or something else?







Here are some ads from that era showing the 1402 and 1403 rifles. Neither appears to have the DST trigger option, which may, nevertheless not have been available on this side of the Atlantic.

I think that it's a 1402 with an optional trigger, but since you're in Canada, could it also be a CIL variant?

That's a logical question, but there doesn't seem to be a CIL equivalent.

The dealer who listed this rifle recently got a batch of Anschutz rifles, sporters and match. Many of sporters have double set triggers, both in 64 and 54 action models. That suggests a European origin as there are fewer DST models over here, especially in 54 actions. (There were also a number of Walthers, a Suhl, a few Weihrauchs, listed as well.)

From the stock and muzzle, I'll go with 1402,or KK Junior depending in the exact age.

The pictured rifle is newer than the ones in the catalog page, it has already the chrome plated bolt handle. In Germany that rifle with the beech stock would have been sold as a 1415 Match. Set triggers were still allowed at that time.

I want to thank those who offered help.

I discovered this morning that there is indeed an Anschutz model that is stamped on the barrel just as the used rifle vendor's website described this rifle -- a KK Junior. According to a Czech website that had this rifle for sale, it is a 1402 KK Junior. http://www.panzer.cz/cs/malorazky/23...tch-22-lr.html

The serial number of the rifle shown below (it's the one shown on the website linked above) is 286900. I'm not familiar with 64 action serial numbering, but perhaps it's a 1960's rifle.

That last rifle is an earlier version with the all-blue bolt and early 6700 match rear sight.

If a chrome bolt was not correct for an early rifle, it's possible that the bolt or part of it is not original. Unfortunately the serial number of the rifle in the first post is unknown so it's difficult to date.

There is another similar rifle on the same vendor's site as the rifle shown in the OP. It appears to have a blued bolt. It's rear sight is not typical aperture-style.
