View Full Version : Anschutz factory barrel tuner?

07-06-2009, 05:32 PM
I tried searching here and on the internet without success.
Does anyone make a barrel tuner that fits a factory Anschutz barrel with the 11mm grooves?

Because of neck surgery I'm, at least for now, unable to shoot my centerfire rifles. So, I'm trying to set up a 22 benchrest rifle. I have an Anschutz 1913 free rifle in a 2213 stock. I've ordered a Kelbly stock. I do not want to rebarrel the rifle. I do not plan to compete because there are no rimfire benchrest matches nearby. I also am not going to order a rimfire rest. I plan to use my SEB rest and bags.

I would like to try a barrel tuner if there is one that will work on the factory barrel. Is there such a beast?

You should be able to contact the tuner builders such as a Fudd or Harrel and they will drill you a tuner to fit your barrel dimensions or you may find a used tuner such as the ones listed on Rimfire Central's Trading Post and build a shim to compensate for the differece in the barrel diameter and tuner.

You might try to contact KC Young at Black Creek Shooters Association . I don't know who made them but he had some tuner on a Anshutz he loaned me at a match . Sort of a dial indicator clamp on type looking wieght . Look him up under 50/50 or someone here might be able to give you contact info , he's a heck of a nice guy .

Thanks for the info folks. I will contact Fudd and Harrell. I also got an email from a member that has one for sale. Things are starting to come together so I can start shooting again without so much pain.

I bougth a Harrel tuner for my Anschutz 2013. It has a muzzle size of .944. My 1808 and 54:18 have a size of .859. Dan charges 150.00 for the tuner and 15.00 to bore it to the correct size. Go the Ammo dealers on this web site and you will find a link to Dan.

I also shoot a 1913 in a 2213 stock.I ordered my tuner from Cicognani in Italy (he makes them himself).But you should be able to source it locally.

The Seb rest should do just fine,no need to change.

The stock can stay standard too,no need to change.I bought the widest Edgewood rear bag(shehane size) and it is a very nice fit.I added a carbon plate on the little square of the stock where it rides the bag.
