Thanks, seeker and sigp226

Early days with this project; but where there's a will, there's usually a way.

I've had a CIL/ Anschutz 310 for over forty years. Finally bought a 1710 DKL a couple years ago. The 310 is a great gun, but it could go away and I wouldn't miss it.

From an aesthetic standpoint, the lines of the 1710/1712 are far more elegant. Having said all that, I expect the 1761 to be an excellent shooter, probably in the same league as the 1710/1712.

Anschutz could win me over if they could make a rifle as aesthetically pleasing as the 1710/1712, but with the alleged reliability improvements of the 1761.
Personally, function trumps appearance . Ideally I want both. But to me, it needs to run right above all . If I could find an older model and shoot it to know it functioned properly , that would be my preferred route . The price increase on the newer models is tough to take .
