Anschutz Smallbore Target Rifle For Sale

Recommended Posts

I think this is a Match 54 1812 with a deep stock. It's my rifle but on the St Andrews Rifle Club Certificate. Shot a 99 with it last week after my summer layoff so nothing wrong with the rifle. There was an older 1807 on here for £500 and just a barrel and action 1813 for £500 so I'm guessing £750 for this complete rifle with sights and some accessories. Will get some photos on but you can phone on 07719888256 Thanks Gordon

The stock is an ISU. A deeper stock than the standard.

Price is £650.

Photos available on request unless anyone can tell me how to post here.

Would prefer to sell as a whole but could break the rifle and just sell action on here if no interest.

1907 ISU Standard stock + 1813 or 1613 barrel/action. If the barrel is marked "Anschutz 1813 Super-Match" it's an 1813, but if it's marked "Anschutz Modell Match 54" it's a 1613. If it's a 1613 it's a late model, '78 or '79 vintage, maybe even 1980.

No, not necessarily. Some 1600 rifles have the old style straight handle w. small steel ball, and some have the curved handle w. large plastic ball. The change happened in '78 or early '79. That said, I think there were considerably more 1800 rifles made, which all have the curved handle, than 1600 rifles w. curved handle, so it's not an unreasonable thought.

 

As the OP listed the barrel as Match 54, I'd lean to a 1613.

 

Apologies for the thread hijack.

However curved bolt handles were also purchased at Bisley for many Match 54 1411 (16 series) so may even be an older barrel, maybe worth finding out the age by looking on the barrel near to where the action meets the barrel..

There should be a stamped leaf followed by two letters this code started from 1968 to 2013 the code is as follows:-

A=0

B=1

C=2

D=3

E=4

F=5

G=6

H=7

I/J=8

K=9

 

1978 would be H....I/J

Ark,

 

the handle could be a later replacement, but the bolt itself cannot be older than '76 or '77 (whenever the 1600 rifles were first made). It cannot be a 1400. Look at the back end; the end cap is the truncated cone introduced with 1600 rifles in '77 -ish. This end cap will not fit a 1400 bolt; the cap is threaded, but 1400 bolts have a bayonet fitting. Nor is it a 1400 action with a replacement bolt; the action is stamped S and F by the safety catch. 1400 rifles don't have this as the safety was on the bolt.

 

Did you get that list from the Anschutz webiste? The letter code is correct, but was not introduced until 1977 or '78. Until '77 the date was stamped as numbers not letters. The earliest letter coded barrel I've seen is '78. A 1968 barrel will be marked 68, not GI.

 

Again more apologies for the thead hijack.

1907 ISU Standard stock + 1813 or 1613 barrel/action. If the barrel is marked "Anschutz 1813 Super-Match" it's an 1813, but if it's marked "Anschutz Modell Match 54" it's a 1613. If it's a 1613 it's a late model, '78 or '79 vintage, maybe even 1980.

 

 

olnmfc,

 

Could you please let us know what the stampings on top of the barrel are, we await with baited breath. (My money is it being an 1813)

Thanks for all the info. The top of the barrel has Anschutz Match 54. I bought the stock from Sarah Brown and the action/barrel came from RAF Leuchars where it had hardly done any shooting. In the last few years in my ownership I'll only have put a few hundred rounds through it. Would the action number help 177241. I've got a copy of the Anschutz manual included in the sale (see photo) & it's for the 18 series which refers to this bolt being Match 54. - In the word of the Club's Chair it's a very competitive rifle. I can throw in an older sling glove and ear defenders along with everything seen in the pics etc to make a fairly complete starters kit. The price at £650 is negotiable but never the less I think still reasonable considering the sum of all the parts.

Olnmfc,

 

the serial number does help. Anschutz actions are pretty much sequentially numbered, unlike some other manufacturers where a stamped action could sit for years before being built into a complete rifle. From the SN the barrel/action is a very late 1613, probably made in 1980, or maybe late '79. Pull the bolt from the action, and look at the underside; if you can see the firing pin through a slot (running from just behind the nose into the full-round section) it's a 1613. No slot, and the barrel/action is a very early 1813.

 

The acid test is the trigger; Anschutz marked the trigger housing with the last two digits of the catalogue number. A 1613 is marked 71 for 5071, and 1813 is marked 18 for 5018.

 

There's nothing odd about an 1813 manual referring to a Match 54 bolt. The 1813 is a Match 54 rifle, just the latest version in the '80s. The current 1913 is still advertised as a/the Match 54.
