Anschutz target rifles are world-renowned for their solid design, functional safety, and unsurpassed shooting performance. The highly regarded Anschutz target action, which is also used the Anschutz hunting repeaters, dominates at national and international competitions, including the Olympic Games and the World Championships in the small bore rifle disciplines.

This same unsurpassed precision and attention to detail also makes Anschutz's hunting rimfires an accurate and reliable partner for hunters in the forest or field. Anschutz rimfire rifles are a masterpiece of engineering and in the world of rimfire shooting, truly in a class of their own.

Luxus repeaters of the series 1516

The Match 64 action is used in the Anschutz 1416 series. The action is a bolt action with cam cocking system, claw extractor and additional cartridge holder and ejector. An 11 mm grooved receiver drilled and tapped for scope mounts makes it possible to attach a telescopic sight. A lateral sliding safety blocks the trigger. The rifle can be loaded and unloaded in the safe position. The bolt face is recessed for full cartridge head support. An additional gas escape groove guarantees safety.

The models of the series 1516 in cal. .22 WMR have a long tradition at ANSCHÜTZ. This classic caliber with a bullet diameter of 5.5 mm was launched by Winchester in 1959. It is extraordinarily suitable to be used for small animals up to the size of a fox at a distance of up to 100 m. At this model of the series Match 64 modifications were carried out in the area of the receiver. The external diameter was enlarged from 25 mm to 26 mm. This modification entails some advantages. The weight of the receiver was increased by 12 % which makes the barreled action more rigid. In addition the locking surface is enlarged by 15 % which leads to even more safety for the shooter when firing the shot. The new shape of the receiver will be continued in the firing pin nut which makes the system more elegant. In addition the old engraving on the upper side of the prism has been replaced by the more attractive "Wave-Style".
