Inherited a 1416 and I've got some questions!



Log in to see fewer ads
Hey All,

This is my first post so I just wanted to say "Hello", tell you the story behind it and ask a few questions about this rifle.

My grandfather has dementia and he unfortunately hasn't been able to shoot for quite some time so he passed some things down to me years ago and this gem is one of them. I got to asking him some questions about this rifle recently and he just cannot recall almost anything about it at all, other than "I only kept the ones that were shooters." He was a big bench rest shooter and I assume that's what he used this for - unfortunately there aren't really any bench rest shoots around me but there is NRL22. So here's the questions.

Is there a chassis that would fit this action and barrel that anyone would suggest?

Is it a "crime" to put something like this rifle into a chassis?

I'm never going to sell this rifle (it's obviously sentimental) but what is it's estimated value for insurance purposes?

Thanks and here's some pictures!

I don't know anything about a1416, others will. I do own Anschutz rifles. This one looks like a keeper for sure.

What you have there is the 1416 Beavertail Tactical Wood Chassis.

I wouldn't change a thing unless you like two stage triggers...Tom

Welcome!

Yes, in my not so humble opinion, a chassis would be a sin. That is a classic gun. There is lots of ugly modern 'stuff' ( I say stuff ) that can go into a chassis. If you keep it as is, also honor your grandad and be worthy of passing on to the next generation. As always, opinions will vary.

That will be an accurate (or should be an accurate) rifle off the bench. I do not think that barrel and over all setup would be an true competition dedicated for bench rest rifle. It is a wonderful general purpose 22. Really excellent choice for any activity. Hunting, any target shoot discipline from shooting in the 4 positions (what ever that is called) steel plates or metal silhouette or off a bench. But; not a monster massive "bench rest" rifle.

Edit: I missed the beaver tail. That is geared more toward bench shooting. I will leave my other 4c, as posted. That gun should be versatile enough for other tasks.

I am not sure the valuation, but; that is a Leupold scope and maybe a high magnification fixed power. You might be able to look that up or find a comparable Leupold scope. it wont be cheap. No point in me guessing.

Looks like $1300 for the rifle

I agree with the others...enjoy the rifle as is. If you want something for NRL22 I'd suggest buying a Tikka T1x or CZ 457. I'm not aware of a readily available chassis for the 1416 and there's a lot of options for the other two rifles

Boyds Gunstocks - AT One or the Pro Varmint for the 64 action would work good for your needs. I have both of these stocks for CZ 457 rifles and they are decent/good quality. For less money than the Anschutz you could buy the CZ 457 with the factory adjustable AT One stock and put a Walther Lothar barrel on it and have a great rifle.

I'd agree that putting it in a chassis might not be criminal, but it'd be skirting the edge of questionable..

That's a rifle that's best enjoyed as it is now. That's some nice wood by Anschutz standards, and it's a classic.

I don't know your grandfather, but if he's anything like me that rifle put a smile on his face every time he looked at it.

I have the same model and I agree! It will shoot fine off the bench and can also be used for hunting.

Beautiful stock. I see no problem with changing it out to something else if it will aid in your shooting. But never get rid of the current stock as it can always be reinstalled as a later date.

I would definitely change the stock if I were to shoot NRL22 with the rifle. Lots of shooting off of various surfaces and jamming the gun into/onto barricades, barrels, aluminum ladders, sawhorses, roof shingled ramps and who knows what other surfaces. Save the uncommonly nice stock and beat up something common.

Why change something that your grandfather likes and left for you?
Very nice gun, If he didn't like it, he would have changed something.

Thanks for the advice everyone and ID!

I'm pretty sure I'll just keep it as is and find something else to shoot NRL22 with. It is a good shooter off the bench for sure!
