RE: Anschutz 1712
I can't say for certain what the 1712 is like, but I can testify to "anschutz accuracy" and quality. I've been shooting an anschutz 1907 target rifle with the aluminum 2213 match stock for small bore competitions...it's rather ugly to most people, but it's gorgeous to me. This rifle is everything you could ever ask for in a target rifle. I've been shooting smallbore matches for two years now, I'm shooting 97's prone, 92's kneeling, and 86's standing very regularly with open sights. My best score to date has been a 294, a perfect prone, missed two kneeling, and missed three standing, one of which was an 8. The 10ring, in these matches is a spot like a mechanical pencil would make, and the 9ring is the diameter of a pencil, shot at 50ft.
I'd certainly recommend them, if the quality and accuracy of the 1712 is on par with that of my target rifle, then you won't be disappointed. I'd venture the wood stock is a bit more attractive than my red and black aluminum machine as well.
