Anschutz Model 1730 D HB Stainless .22 Hornet

Read Gun Tests Rating and Recommendation

Nice European walnut gracefully styled and impeccably finished surrounds the Anschutz's Model 54 Target action and heavy stainless barrel. The trigger was excellent, as were feed and function. The cost of this rifle drove it into the Conditional Buy category, as some of the less nicely-finished rifles offered equal performance.

Clean lines and outstanding checkering also graced the Anschutz. Metal polish and finish were excellent. The magazine is removed here.
Anschutz offers a variety of rifle designs and styles in the Hornet chambering. Everything about this rifle worked well, and overall workmanship was outstanding.
There were two ways to mount a scope, either with bolt-on bases or clamp style. We used clamp-on bases. This photo shows the 2.5X Burris scope with which we shot some of the best groups. Most of our testing was with a 2-8X Burris installed.
