Anschutz Rifles and their Success
De odes of labor
It has taken many years of collecting pofessional know how to reach this goal. The great love for rifle competition has made the Anschutz Rifle what it is today. Many long hours and sleepless nights have been spent so that every desirable design feature could be tested and retested.
We can now say, with humble pride that
Anschutz manufactures the worlds best known match rifles. For this we are thankful to the men and women who are doing such a fine job at our plant. Your Anschutz rifle is the result of dedicated craftsmen, years of experience, and the finest steel in the world.
I i i
The barrel steel used by Anschutz is of the best grade especially selected for Rifle barrels. Such are of maximum weight which allow a balance of the rifle which is very much in its favor and give such fine accuracy never thought possible up to now.
Each one has 8 Lands of the most exact sculpture and all standard .22 cartridges of any reliable make will give good results.
Many Gun editors have men-
~ tioned this in their reports to the Shooter.

Only well seasoned walnut will go into a stock for your Anschutz Rifle. Stock length, Shape, Cheekrest and the anatomic pistol grip are the result of many years of tests by prominent Shooters. Particular attention was given to different size of men as well as various shooting positions.
All stocks ar~ rubbed .dow.n and oiled but not polished. A polished stock will slide too easy and a scratch will show up at once. A few drops of oil rubbed in from time to time is always a good idea.

The post type may be had in 5 different sizes 1,7, 2,0, 2,3, 2,6 and 3,4 m/m width.
The round aperture sight can be furnished in sizes 1,7 to 5,5 m/m each 0,1 m/m more in size.
However, experience has proved that such round apertures with a small hole are bad for the eye and do cause errors in Shooting. For this reason for 50 meters at the Internatianal
Small Bore Target a round aperture should not be smaller than 3,5 m/m and for 100 meters
