Model 1710

The Anschutz Model 1710 is a bolt-action hunting rifle chambered in .22 LR. The best competitive shooters in national, international and Olympic shooting events commonly use Anschutz rifles.

The 1710’s bolt uses dual locking lugs that secure the bolt in place so the firing pin strikes the cartridge on mark and discharges the round as straight as possible. It also provides a shorter bolt lift. The interior of the bolt is designed with a cam cocking firing pin system that doesn’t allow the firing pin to punch forward until the bolt is completely closed. This ensures the rifle always functions properly. It has a claw extractor and an additional cartridge holder and ejector, which helps fire rounds consistently and eject cases effortlessly. Its two-stage match trigger, which gives extra tension in the pull, corresponds with Anschutz’s competitive-grade trigger design.

 Anschutz recommends Model 1710 for leisure, sport and competitive shooting, and to hunt varmint or small game.
