About Biathlon

Biathlon is an Olympic winter sport, which combines competitive,

Biathlon
Quote:
The word biathlon is of Greek origin and means "two tests."

Several other competition forms of movement and shooting,
such as ski archery, snowshoe biathlon, running and shooting,
and mountain bike biathlon, are also normally included
in the general category of biathlon.

However, by far the most common form of biathlon is the cross-country skiing
and small-bore rifle marksmanship competition.

It is this latter type of biathlon that is an Olympic event

Just thought I would share a couple photos of my Biathlon rifle.

It is not a Russian Ishmash but instead a Anschutz Fortner with a custom stock
which I am currently carving down to make it better fitting.

As you can see the Anschutz logos on the sights and action
have been covered-up with felt marker
because they are not a sponosor of mine,
right now there are no sponsorship stickers on the rifle
because the stock is only a couple weeks old.

And, Biathlon friendly as well.

Not a stock Anschutz 1827 Fortner.

Did you consider purchasing an Izhmash Biathlon 7-4?
Or, a Larsen Biathlon Rifle?

How about some more photos of the rifle in the field.

Really cool rifle. I'm wondering how the magazines are held in the stock. Is there some kind of recessed holder, or just cutouts in the wood?

Very cool rifle; I've seen a pic of it over on the Anschutz forum. I guess you posted here because the name of the forum has Biathlon in it, but it actually refers to the model of a Russian rifle currently imported into the US.

I'm interested to know why you decided to make your own stock, which turned out great, btw.

Thanks for the contribution!

I decided to make my own stock because I was going to use the smaller designed clips as well as to get a lighter stock material. However I learned from my mistake and am currently in production with a heavier material.

Prairiekid,
It was enjoyable following your season through the Fasterskier blog. I wasn't able to make the races in ValCartier to thank you in person for the effort of writing the reports. You provided a very nice change of perspective from most race reports.

I'm also in the process of building a lighter stock for my 7-4. Mine will be mostly carbon fiber to be as light as possible so I can add weight where it will benefit me the most. Any insight or observations you can provide on what you believe to have benefit ion a biathlon rifle will be greatly appreciated.
