Anschutz sporter on 64 action?

1855 Views 20 Replies 10 Participants Last post by  Koonce Custom
I bid on and won an older Anschutz sporter built on a single shot 64 action, I honestly didn't think the minimum bid was going to be a winner. Long story short, now it is mine, and i am jonesing for it. I was hoping somebody here could tell me just what it is that I have acquired. Apparently it doesn't have an official model number, and was "not originally sold in the USA". I was hoping one of our resident gurus might shed some light on this rifle for me.

I think it is a Model 1393. I have no personal knowledge of this model but it appears to match the listing on page 33 of the 1967 Anschutz catalog.

The Model 1395 was the same single shot 64 action but it had a checkered walnut stock whereas the 1393 had a plain hardwood stock.

Not a darn thing wrong with that little gem for that price!. The stock is a bit dinged up, but it would be a perfect project gun for refinishing or restocking for a son/daughter's or grandson/daughter's first rifle :D.

TBR
Ditto that!
I started my rimfire life with a single shot bolt action rifle,and it was a far lesser rifle than that in every way.

As that looks just like the undated early multi-shot 64 Action sporter that I have what dose those that would know think the model number of mine might be? Sorry of the thread hijack.

Al

BTW mine shoots great.
As per the Anschutz Models Sticky at the top of this Anschutz forum, a 64 action repeater sporter with the plain hardwood stock is probably a Model 1415.

I got the rifle yesterday. I have included a picture of the import mark. I think it was done pretty tastefully.



The metal on this rifle is excellent but the wood not so much. Would it be a complete sacrilege to restock this thing and put a good trigger in it?

Sacrilege? No,just insanity.I think that you're pretty much stuck with that trigger,and restocking ain't cheap.Enjoy it for what it is,a nice little economical gun that you don't have to worry about,or lose a nickel on.I'd refinish the stock,but that's about it.

Color me insane. The original trigger worked similarly to a Mauser 98 military trigger, and felt about the same. It pulled at around 6 pounds. I made a phone call and had a Model 64 Match trigger in the gun bu 6:00 PM. It now pulls cleanly, right at two pounds. I had to inlet the stock and widen the opening in the plate between the stock and trigger guard. The safety was opposite the original trigger so I had to drill another dimple and do a red and white safety dot instead of the original single red. I am getting excited to shoot this thing now.

As for stocking being expensive, I was going to do it, unless I could find a take-off factory stock. I'd just be in the stock for the blank and hardware.

Sorry

My congrats for your ingenuity in fitting up the new trigger.I didn't think they were interchangeable,even with work.
I haven't heard of any 64 action sporter stocks floating around,but perhaps Numrich has one.
If you enjoy assorted projects,have the stockmaking talent that very few have, and are having fun with it,that's the main thing.
My thought is that you'll end up with more in it,than buying a higher grade intially.

Thanks for the kind words.

I have done quite a few stocks, and enjoy doing it but can't do it fast enough to make any money at it so I don't offer it as a service to my customers. As for the buying a higher grade rifle in the first place, where's the fun in that?

I hear ya'. I'm just too old,too impatient,and know the limits of my hands.
I would like to attempt a stock one day.In the meantime,I'll have to keep working so that I can continue with LeRoy's Roth account.

I will trade you a repeater action for your single shot action !! Actually, I would prefer to sell you the repeater action. It does have the fully adjustable, alloy bodied match trigger.

You can buy a S/A Mk10B stock from numnuts for about $135. It's a competition stock but still usable as a sporter.
