    Quality 22 thats rough and needs re finishing

    I'm looking for a quality older 22 bolt action repeater that needs re finishing and / or repairs.
    Will consider anything that's worth putting the time into.
    Worn in, not worn out.

    I want to get one together for one of my son in laws.
    The sort of decent rifle he will have for the rest of his life.

    I brought a brand new left hand Anschutz 22 for myself 35 years ago and despite the eye watering price at the time I have never wanted for more.
    So I'm intending doing the same for my son in law and expect it will go for a few more generations.

    Cheers

    Not really @Pengy.
    I have a Brno semi I want to sell that he could have but I want him to shoot with a bolt.
    He will be shooting with a dog and at night sometimes and a bolt is easier in my opinion.

    Gidday David - not to rain on the 1400 sellers parade but this is the most basic "Flobert" model with the non-adjustable trigger - some of them shoot very well but its not the "64" action. They are hard to differentiate to the uninitiated but a sure way to tell is look at the position of the bolt to the trigger. If the bolt is roughly right above the trigger is a "64" action with a trigger ranging from good to superb, depending on model, if the bolt is set forward of the trigger like the TM one its a cheaper "Flobert" action.

    Cheers

    Hi @Tentman
    Yes I'm aware its the 1400 and thats why I haven't really looked at it that seriously.
    My one is the "64" action and it has been bloody exceptional. I put a VX2 2-7 scope in steel Hillver rings on it the day I brought it and have probably only ever touched it a couple of times in 35 years when I changed ammo brand some time.

    My brother brought the cheaper entry level 1400 model.

    I'm not in a hurry and will wait for something that will justify the effort and last the distance.

    They do come up, I had a tidy(ish) CIL "64" based one out from the local gun store recently, priced at $350, it didn't shoot all that well so I took it back (it since sold). However I found out after the event (from the internet so how true it is is anybodies guess) that due to the design of the crown on the sporter Anschutz's many of them suffer from a "crusty crown" after a high round count - if one carefully cleans the crown up (or better still has it re-crowned) they instantly shoot a lot better. As always your mileage may vary !!

    Ive only got my phone to check photos but that looks like a 64 action to me on the TM site, I have 3 of them one a magnum, same, also had a few of the lesser action models, still shot very well !

    That one on TM has the more expensive rear sight & barrel bugle/ramp same as mind !

    There are both a 1400 and 64 listed separately.

    The 1400 is mis spelled and cheap.

    The 64 is in good condition and therefore too expensive for what I want.
