Default anschutz .22

hey, recently ive been able to shoot my buddies cz .22....After shooting it i realized that i wanted to upgrade my .22 from my ruger 10/22. i know that they are very accurate, but also expensive, its hard to find a bad report on them. If you were to buy a next step up .22 what would you buy??

also any info on the anschutz would be nice

thanks for any imput

Birdman, you sound like you're going down the right road to me.

Somewill say arguably that Anschutz builds the best quality OTC 22's there isand I tend to agree with them. More Olympic medals have been done with Annie's than any other. I dont have any experinces with their 22's but do have a couple of the 17 HMR's and they are fabulous rifles..... excellent workmanship,wood/metal fit is great, nice walnut stock,awesome triggers and areaccurate, but with this, they are not going to be priced with a walmart savage, marlin etc. They are anywhere from $600 on up new and you can ocassionally find them used for less.

Other makes that might interest you if you are wanting to step up in quality are the Cooper M57 LVT (I have one in 17 HMR) and the Kimber K22 or SVT. These are also great rifles and very comparable to the Anschutz's. It just that the later has so many variations to choose from.

Either way you choose I am sure you wont be disappointed.

If I was in the market for another 22 I would pick between these makers.

i have never heard of the Cooper, whats the price tag look on that, and I like kimbers, but the price is even worse then anschutz and if i would chose between an anschutz and a kimber, i would chose the anschutz. but thank you for the info, and i think im gonna look into the cooper

Not all anschutz rifles are the expensive match grade target rigs. At a gun show a couple months ago i forked out 350 cdn for an CIL anschuts model 180.I mounted a redfeild 2-7 scope i got for a song and at 50 yards ive shot a 10 shot group sitting with high velocity ammo that measures around 2 inches. not bad for a rifle that has only 500 dollars invested into it.

Birdman: No doubt the Anschutz is a fine rifle. We have a 22 Magnum that is over 30 years old. And it will SHOOT. I have changed over the years, and so has the manufacturers. There are alot of American mfrs. that are now making a high quality 22. I suggest you buy American. Tom.

Birdman, prices for new Cooper M57's in 22 LR caliber range anywhere from about $1300 to $3000 and then some. It really depends on the options you care to have on the rifle. The lower priced rifles are just as accurate as the higher priced ones, they just are not as pretty. One thing about them is they are somewhat an investment as they can hold their value well.

You might find that the Anschutz's can be had for $600-$700 for M54 actions and the CZ 452's are fairly nice and are much cheaper.

Birdman

I used to have an Anschutz 1416D 22LR. As others have mentioned the Anschutz is an outstanding and very accruate rifle. I sold mine at one point, don't remember exactly why, but probably because I thought I had to have something new.

Last year I bought a CZ 453 American, which is basicaly a 452 but has a single set trigger. I have found the CZ 453 to be every bit as accurate as the Anschutz 1416D I used to have. The CZ 453 can be had at Whittaker Guns for $419 and the 452's for $306.

In my opinion, this is agreat value considering the accuracy you get with the CZ's.
