[QUOTE=iceweazel;11800747]The bolt arms look too darn short. Need more length or a slight bend to get them out of the way.
/QUOTE]

They are - Big hands will keep bumping the scope when working the bolt rapidly.

A longer bolt knob is a quick and simple fix.

ANA will modify the stock single stage trigger to a two-stage that will get you down to about nine ounces. Mine was set at fourteen ounces.

Perhaps ANA swaps the single stage trigger for a two stage instead and then reduces the pull weight.

As I understand it, it is a conversion of the stock trigger with approval of and parts from Anschutz in Germany. I don't know that there is a two stage trigger to swap into the new model.

Perhaps the part they use is the two stage trigger specifically for the 1761, which goes down to as low as 250 grams (8.8 ounces) . See previous posts #55 and 56.

The 1761 now comes with 4 trigger options.

"5061 D Heavy" Single stage 400-1200g
"5061 D Light" Single stage 250-400g

"5061 Heavy" 2 stage 400-1200g
"5061 Light" 2 stage 250-400g

The 2 stage triggers have a straighter shoe that can be slid fore/aft a little, similar to the trigger on the 1712.

The original release of the 1761 last year came with the "5061 D Heavy" variant. There's far more 1761 options available now between these triggers, stocks, barrel lengths, threaded muzzles, suppressed barrels, etc.

I have an MPR on order which comes with the 5061 light. Dealer is awaiting shipment from Germany and the Covid-19 situation is holding things up. Looking forward to the range reopening and the rifle arriving - whenever that may be.

As I understand it, the two stage triggers are not available to ANA as Asar seems to indicate. I was told that the stock, heavy single stage trigger assembly was modified to a two stage trigger by Austin at ANA by changing parts within the stock trigger assembly, a rebuild so to speak, of the stock, heavy single stage trigger. That's all I know. I very well may have misunderstood. I was at first concerned with having to buy a new, two-stage trigger. The end result works extremely well.

This is correct info. The two stage triggers although on Germany’s website, have not made it to the US yet. It will be early to mid summer depending on the corona virus delays on Customs.

Is the 5061 trigger a new design or is it repurposed from another rifle? Any ideas as to what trigger it is comparable to?

I believe the trigger is a new design for the rifle - here's a link below to a video, there's small comment at 3 min 15 sec's in that suggests this:

Interesting.... Sometimes I forget what what fun it is to shoot a rimfire. It's easy to get caught up in the fanboy BS that is prevalent on most forums and take sides in the hoopla that surrounds particular brands and models of .22 rifles. Thanks for the video.

The 5061 is a single stage with pull weight & sear adjustment screws and in use feels exactly the same as the Anschutz 5094 & 5096 triggers which will adjust comfortably below a pound with a spring change.

BUT..The 5061 is PINNED to the receiver and removing the pull weight screw on my example exposes the pull weight spring OK but the spring is not a simple swap out like the 5094/96 designs.

Without spares, I'm not prepared to drive out the roll pins to remove the trigger group so content to run with a 28 oz. creep free 5061 at this point.
