The ANSCHÜTZ model 1712 sporting rifle is based on the match 54 target rifle which is legendary among target shooters and hunters around the world. Sporting rifles of the 1700 series from ANSCHÜTZ share the highest quality requirements with the match 54 rifles and it is this level of quality which has resulted in the domination of national and international competitions, including the Olympic Games and World Championships in the small-bore rifle disciplines. The famous and unmatched ANSCHÜTZ precision makes the 1712 a reliable partner on the shooting range or in the woods and fields. The sophisticated design and detailed hand-fitting of parts result in smooth and precise bolt movement of this repeater. The 1712 model is fitted with the match two-stage trigger 5109 (adjustment range 800 – 1.100 g), making it ideal for shooting at the target range or for hunting small predators.


Each special edition 1712 is fitted with a hand-selected walnut stock featuring excellent figuring, and then further

rifle highly desirable for looks, performance, and individuality.
