    Looking for a rimfire rifle

    I want to buy a used Rimfire rifle and with my budget I'm looking at

    FWB 2000 and 2600
    Anschutz m/54 and maybe 1807, 1903, 1907

    What do you think about this rifle for benchrest and I am a newbeginner about Rimfire.
    I had shot a lot BR with airrifle but like to try rimfire also.

    Yes, very nice rifle but my budget is around 500 euro but in worst case I could get my limit to 800 euro. For that money I can buy those rifle I asked about. Are they useful ore not and if which do you prefer and why?

    54 for compatition

    Hi Nitro, I shoot an Anschutz 54 model 1411 in club matches.
    Most of the other shooters are using custom rifles in the two to three thousand dollar range
    The best I can do is second or third place against them.
    My anney likes Lapua Center X. I hope this helps.

    I also use an Annie 54 model 1411 in club matches here in Australia. It cost me about $1000 Au including a 6-32x50 scope.

    In the front rail under the stock I made a 75mm wide sled from delrin to fit my front rest.

    Using Eley Tenex ammunition sometimes I win against the custom jobs, but then I learned from this forum how to make wind flags and how to read them. This led to a great improvement in my scores. Worth considering.

    Hey Doggie, I did the same with mine except I used a seven inch length of three inch wide aluminum channel.
    I tried the Eley but the gun didn't like it.
    The Lapua shoots a lot better in the old iron.
    I managed to get my anny for $800.00 US , and changed the trigger to a two stage match that I modified
    for a nice light pull, it shoots real well wind permitting.

    I suspect the rifle shoots "real well" wind or not!!


    Neborus--look at a 40x Mueller. Couple guys have em at our shoots and like em well. I briefly looked thru one and it looked fione. Did not shoot a target w/ the Mueller. Mueller has a good reputation for customer service.

    Just looked at website and they have a 40x56 w/ dot and side focus listed on sale for $269. If I didnt have 3 T36s Id be tempted.
