ANSCHUTZ 1516 DHB THUMBHOLE 22WMR HEAVY BARREL - SKU: 1516DHBTH



The 1516 in 22WMR has a long tradition with Anschutz. This classic calibre with a bullet diameter of 5.5 mm was launched by Winchester in 1959. It is extraordinarily good for small game up to the size of a fox at a distance of up to 100m. This model sports an ergonomic thumbhole stock that is both comfortable and practical for field use.

For this model with the Match 64 action modifications were carried out in the area of the receiver to accommodate the 22WMR chambering. The external diameter was enlarged from 25 mm to 26 mm. This modification creates 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 In addition the old engraving on the upper side of the action has been replaced by the more attractive "Wave-Style" design.
