View Full Version : Anschutz 1517 thumbhole

Swapped my 3 yr old conventionally stocked version for one of these.
The stock makes a huge difference to the handling as well as looking much better.
The real bonus was the feeling of a much tighter chambering and smaller groups than the old rifle shot even while new - both shot from sandbags. Luck of the draw I know.
If you're thinking of one of these, at least try out the thumbhole. I know it costs £150 more, but I definitely think it is worthwhile.

The thumbhole makes the rifle very pointable. Great for walking around standing shots.

Your right mate definitely worthwhile for the extra cost,

Used it again last night- simply awesome and much, much easier to use for standing shots. Left the bipod off and am just using telescopic sticks on the shortest setting for sitting shots- just so much more versatile, whilst keeping the balance but weight and bulk down.
Got an LEI mod too which is really much quieter (than a SAK) when it has a few through it

I am really glad I got an Anschutz thumbhole.
It exudes quality in every aspect.
My first experience of live ammunition and the accuracy/range is awesome.

Great guns, I never use my .22lr any more, in fact I've just sold it.

I agree I made my own and what a difference good gun made better.
