Anschutz Fast Clamp

Recommended Posts

Top scoot on that one.

 

That's an impressive saving for something that does the same job.

Anschutz aren't going to spend an enormous amount of money designing something specialised like that when they can just use a standard component that can be bought for pennies! (Unless they genuinely need to for functional reasons). The worst aspect of this is the price of the bedding screws that are listed on the various websites for £10+ when they are just standard metric hex socket cap head screws that can be bought in bulk for a couple of pence per unit.

Anschutz bedding bolts can be a standard 4mm Allen head but the thread used is not standard metric pitch.

M6 Fine. I've yet to find a source locally.

M6 fine (M6 x 0.75) when seaching.

Ensure that the thread is 0.75mm pitch not the standard 1mm.

Lengths are then the fun part... too long for the rear bolt will jam the bolt!

Thanks all!

I have tried fitting a M5x1 and it seems to run smoothly, was careful not to strip the threads. Though I will get a thread gauge on the job first as i don't want tightening to cause wear.
