I am looking to sell my Anschutz 54.30 if interested. Only a year old. Shot 20 cards plus 3 visited comps. Want to concentrate on air rifle now. Has anschutz canting sights with centra 22mm foresight. Anschutz folding bipod and new 12 inch extension tube made by Barry Nesom. Total spend £4200.

Great rifle would need £2800 for the whole thing. Case included.

Cheers

Thanks Davie, sounds very nice but over my budget unfortunately.

I'm a newbie looking in the £600 to £1000 area, I should probably have said.

Good luck selling it and feel free to "hijack" the thread a little with a photo if you wish.

Regards,

Richard

I'd be interested to see some pictures.  I think it may be out my range too, but you never know.

Hi Richard,

I do have an 1813 with a Boarder barrel which has only shot about 7,500 rounds, and am looking for £1200 as it comes complete with sights, handstop and bipod - PM me if you’re interested. I did post some pictures of it a while ago on the For Sale section if you want to trawl back and find it though

cheers

Neil.

Thanks Neil, looks nice but I'll probably look for something cheaper if it has a  wooden stock, or stretch the budget a bit if it has a metal one.

Regards,

Richard

You'd be doing well to get a full rifle with all the attachments and an alu stock for not much over £1000 Richard. 

How much adjustability are you wanting in the cheekpiece? If it's just height you want to adjust then a Supermatch stock will do you nicely as a newbie.

Hi James,

I think you're right, I like the Supermatch stock.

I find the 1913 or 2013 type cheekpiece ok, it has height and a little sideways movement with a fairly square edge. I can't seem to find the right position with the older models with height only and the cheekpiece with the more rounded shape.

The alloy stocks do seem to command a high price, perhaps because most of the best shooters with very good rifles use them. I was in Australia in February and missed a 1913 in alu that was advertised for £1250... :-/

Slightly off topic,  but why not make your own cheekpiece? On an 1813* the wood is held onto the metal bracket with two wood screws. It's a doddle to remove it, and screw on a piece of softwood that''s about the right size and shape. Cut or sand that to shape and call your uncle Robert. You even get lateral adjustment by how far across the bracket you screw on the new wood.

 

*And any Supermatch using that spring-loaded cheekpiece - 1413 (from 1972/3), 1613, 1813, and 1913 (until at least 93), and the 11 series of Prone-only rifles.

Also off topic, but then this is also a Wanted in the sales!

Flat top cheek pieces are a doddle to make, I make all mine for all mine and my wife's rifles that don't come with them, email me for pics
