Luxus repeater of the series 1516:
The models of the series 1516 in cal. .22 Win. Mag. R.F. 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 In addition the old engraving on the upper side of the prism has been replaced by the more attractive „Wave-Style".

Beavertail stock:
The Beavertail stock has nothing in common with the classic, European hunting stock. It resulted from the demands of North American hunters and combines the advantages of a classic target stock with the wide beavertail fore-end stock. With a rail in the fore-end stock this type of stock finds more and more fans.
