You never miss because it's your fault??

This one gets the most use, ridiculously accurate and dependable. I complained about the weight when I bought it but it just plain shoots. My main pine squirrel rig, and crow, and coon, and...



Also have a like new 1422 Classic but it's too perfect to take out in the woods, bench duty only. The 54 action is superior to every other rimfire I have had the pleasure to own.

I am fortunate to have both a 1710HB and a 1712 FWT. I've only hunted steel silouettes with mine, but they have proven to be match winners. I had a 64MS that I gifted to my hunting partner and it is a real shooter as well, but the 54 actions, at least my two, are super nice and a step up. Almost unbelievably accurate with any decent ammo....I've had a Cooper which was a really nice rifle and shot well, and I also had a Jap repro Winnie model 52, which also shot well, but there is no drama associated with the Annies. They just shoot....

If you guys were buying a new one would you get the 1712 with roll over cheek or a 1710 with rollover or straight classic stock?

I would buy the Classic. I hate the look of the monte carlo and I have yet to have any trouble scoping a classic stock rifle. I doubt you would need the high roll over cheek piece unless you were using a 50mm objective scope.

I appreciate that and have thought along thoes lines but I do kind of like the roll over look.My main concern though is that I bury my cheek on most rifles and like a high comb or very low mounted small objective scopes on most rifles.

I own several 36mm objective scopes and only one 40mm on a Sako 75 Finnlight,which has a fairly high cheek piece.I don't like higher mounted scopes because I hate for my cheek to barely touch the stock.

I don't know without handling them if the higher cheek stock is just right or too high.I will likely mount a VX2 4-12X40AO

Is there any difference in the two actions other than single stage trigger on the 1710, VS slightly shorter barrel and two stage trigger on the 1712?

The safety is different, at least on the new ones. I think I read once tha the barrel weight & profile is different also. I have 4 of those Leupold scopes, except they are the earlier Vari-X IIc version in 4-12X40. Just about perfect for varmint guns, rimfire or otherwise. Great choice!

Here are some pictures of my Anschutz Model 54 Sporter. This is my favorite squirrel rifle. I have a Leupold 3x9 Compact with adjustable objective on it. I'm not sure, but I don't think they make this scope anymore with the adjustable objective. Also, I sent this scope back to Leupold and had them put in a fine .22 rimfire reticle in it. Really nice. Deadly on squirrels.
