    For Sale Anschutz 1813 Action In Tec-Hro Stock

    Sadly Anschutz have got their dates wrong. The letter code did not seem to start until 1977/78. The latest number-dated rifle I've seen was 77, and the oldest lettered was HI. I've also not seen a numbered rifle older than 61.

    Michelle, J is omitted as it's too similar to I. 96 is KG.

    For Sale Anschutz 1813 Action In Tec-Hro Stock

    I'm not sure that one example is enough. I know of a handful of Anschutz rifles with a non-original factory barrel. Compare this to the number with the original barrel, or even rebarreled with a Border/Shilen etc and I still believe it's highly unlikely to find a marriage of Anschutz parts.

    For Sale Anschutz 1813 Action In Tec-Hro Stock

    Huey, even so the action would not carry a date of manufacture, bar the serial number which is only useful if you can compare it to others. 1986 manufacture is much more likely. I've heard the same of '90s vintage barrels too.

    For Sale Anschutz 1813 Action In Tec-Hro Stock

    The action should be older than 1996 if it's an 1813. The 1813 was superceded by the 1913 in 1987. It's possible to put an 1813 barrel in a 1913 receiver, but I think this is highly unlikely. The proof marks on the left hand side of the barrrl, just ahead of the receiver. You're looking for two small letters; the first should be an I, for 8.

    Robin, there should be a delete button next to the edit button. You may have to hover the cursor over it.

    Standard Walther Foresight Tunnel

    Robin, you mean that you want one from a KK200 or 300 (or contemporary LG model) before they switched to Centra?

    An 18mm hi-end should fit any 18mm tunnel; it's only metal elements that are tricky, as not all tunnels have the slot at the top. The canting tunnel may be different; normally these are made forthe newer 19xx barrels, which have an 11mm dovetail at the muzzle. 14-1800 rifles (including those just marked Match 54) need a specific tunnel.

    Gemini Butt Offset Spacer

    Hi, does anyone have a spare or unwanted offset spacer for a Gemini buttplate? This is the plate that sifts the butt further sideways.

    Aj Parker M80 Sight

    Doesn't Swing stand for Swenson and Ingram? George Swenson did work for Wilkes, and I'd heard based the Swing rearsight liberally on the Wilkes.

    4Mm Anschutz Front Sight Riser Block

    I have to say, normally a new (19xx) foresight is much taller than an old (14-18xx) foresight, so will sit much higher on an barrel, so you need a raiser under the rearsight.

    I think that's the eBay chap. He done.... Romanes Eunt Domus anyone?

    4Mm Anschutz Front Sight Riser Block

    I'm not sure that Anschutz, Centre, or the other usual names make a 4mm block for a Match 54 barrel. You might be able to fit a 1913 4mm block with a little filing though. There is the chap on eBay that makes and sells custom blocks. Perhaps he would do a 4mm?

    Barry Nesom Turn-Over Foresight

    Jonty, the level is attached to a small collar; the lug that the inner tunnel locates on, is part of the level. This is how the elevation adjustment is not affected by cant, unlike John Kelly's original. Mine is usually a little high at 100, but the tunnel was made for a 45in sight radius, and for years I had a 39in.

    Barry Nesom Turn-Over Foresight

    It should do if the foresight block is screwed onto the barrel. I think the very old M54 barrels, where the foresight block was machined into the muzzle. are the same, but I can't remember off-hand. Anschutz changed the width and depth of the dovetail in the 1980s, so foresights can't be swapped between 19xx rifles and 18xx, 16xx, and 14xx rifles.

    Foresight Ramp / Wedge

    Oh that one. That was a proprietary design made by Barnett for their short lived smallbore rifle. I don't know if it was sold commercially as an accessory, and doubt it's been made since the 1940s. Anyway it took a special foresight (likely needing the small 9/16in Parker-Hale elements) with an angled base; your Anschutz 1413 won't fit without a custom made adaptor. Gehmann do make a sliding raiser block set, but I think these may be only for 1913 barrels/foresights with the shallow dovetail, rather than the deeper dovetail of the 1413. If you want quick distance changes, a stepped foresight base or flip-over foresight tunnel would be much easier to find.

    Foresight Ramp / Wedge

    Do you mean a two-step base? I bought mine from the NSRA shop a few years ago, cost was about a tenner.
