.22 Hornet Model 1700 Anschutz Bolt Action Rifle. Generally SUPERB original condition apart from a small area of original the stock finish. Basically the varnish beginning to flake a little at the top edge to the left hand side of the action. It also looks like the gun has been stood muzzle down as there is some colour missing there. NO rust or corrosion as such only the blueing finish. Highly likely any buyer will want threading for a moderator this would all go, even at the original full length.
23 ½” (595mm) barrel retaining the original open/ iron adjustable sights. 14” Stock Pull length which brings in an overall measurement ‘as is’ at 42 ½” (1080mm). Bare rifle weight tips in at 7 Lbs dead (3.2 Kg).
NO I WON’T pay a small fortune for one / be held to ransome. IF need be I will sort out a brand new mag well and fit something else! PLEASE SEE images for the magazine in question. It IS very distinctive so quite easily recognised.
Getting back to the rifle itself. The stock has some Very Nice Dark and Contrasting Stripes with a Good Strong Straight Grain. An oil refinish would make this into quite a Stunning and Classy small calibre rifle. That said it is perfectly nice enough as it is too. Just get out, use and enjoy it. As usual on these Higher Grade Rifles Ship or Fox Cut Chequering. A feature I always think just adds that little bit extra class to a gun. Roll over Raised Cheek piece and Schnabel forend as found on their Higher Grade Rifles .
All in all a Very Nice Rifle from one of the World’s Very Best Makers.
For the only option available new today think double the money and a bit more!
