Anschutz Mannlicher Carbine .222 Rem
What a little beauty! Anschutz is known for its accuracy, and having test-fired this one we can attest that the reputation is well-deserved. We rarely see all of these desirable features in one place: Full Mannlicher-style stock, double-set triggers, skipline checkering, folding open sight, and two methods to mount a scope. The set triggers are a real delight. The front trigger by itself serves as a conventional trigger to fire the gun, while the rear trigger can be used to "set" the front trigger for a let-off in the ounces. The barrel is approximately twenty inches and the detachable magazine holds three rounds. The receiver is grooved for rimfire-type tip-off mounts (which are fully adequate for the light-recoiling .222) but it also has Weaver-style cross lock bases installed so you can choose from a number of heights and styles of cross lock type rings from many makers. The wood shows some light usage marks while there are a couple of spots on the barrel where the bluing is a bit thin. However, the bore is near perfect and the gun is overall better than 90%. This is a very scarce configuration for an Anschutz .222 and we actually can't say that we've ever seen another exactly like it. It would be a pleasure for a discriminating small caliber shooter to own as a walking varminter or small game rifle.
