I'll let Roger tell you about this beauty:
Here's an unusual rifle for your consideration.
After having built the York Arms based AR that you so kindly highlighted on your blog, I found my self an Anschutz target rifle for my Smallbore Prone competition.
It's an Anschutz 54 action with an Atkinson cut rifle barrel fitted by Karl Kenyon in a composite stock with a little patriotism added. Mr Atkinson made top level barrels for many years until being recruited by Ruger to run their barrel making operation.
7 way adjustable trigger @ 4 oz & a Weaver T-24 target scope with 1/4moa dot.
In the two months I've had it, I won the Expert class of my club's Smallbore prone both months.
Now working toward Master classification.I see exactly one thing wrong with a rifle like that: No excuses. Oh, sure, when you've got a 30 year old Remington 511 with a freebie BSA 3-9X scope on it, a 3 MOA group at 50 yards isn't all that bad. But that Anschutz? I'd be embarrassed at anything less than sub-MOA at anything 100 yards or closer, even with bulk ammo.
I really do need to get my s**t in one sock and decide on a .22LR target platform. With the state of ammo these days, I've got sufficient .22LR stock to last me a while, but not match .223 or .308. With a nice .22LR target rifle like the Savage Mark II TR, I'd have a great stand-in for my Model 10 that I could shoot for hours without dislocating my shoulder - or my wallet.
Thanks for sharing Roger, despite rekindling my need for another rifle...
That is all.
