Mr. C's New Toy - Part II

Savage / Anschutz Mark 12 .22 Long Rifle


I figured I better get a full picture and description posted before I ended up with Rivrdog on my front porch banging on the door wanting to know what my new target rifle might be.

Of course, if Rivrdog did show up on the porch, the coffee pot's usually on, but you know what I mean!

Anyhow, it's a Savage / Anschutz Model 12 in .22 long rifle, with a 25" heavy barrel, on a custom stock. The picture doesn't do justice to just how gorgeous the stock is. I believe it's bird's eye maple. It's absolutely beautiful!

Once I've finished dialing it in, and have had a chance to get in some range time with it, I'll do a full post and range review.

Gee Mr. C did you decide to change from a lefty to a "normal"? If not it might be interesting to watch you shooting the gun upsidedown.

I was wondering how long it would take before someone noticed! Actually, I just put my left thumb on top of the stock, and it's fine.

Now that is a real Beaut. I have lusted for an Anschutz ever since they were introduced. The major barrier was the cost and nobody wanted to part with theirs, so they were mostly unavailable on the used market. They were over $400.00 when a new Ruger 10/22 was $89.00.

Only improvement I can see, for that would be a standard military stock and sling. That beautiful stock is just a piece of furniture that needs to be hung on the wall.

Scope's a Tasco 3-12. I'm guessing maybe 44mm. It seems like a pretty nice scope, for not being a super spendy one...

Looks like a nice one.

What's wrong with pretty wood? If you're taking it to the woods where it might get banged up could change it, but otherwise...
