Anschutz Md. 380
I picked up a lovely match air rifle at a recent gun show. It is an Anschutz 360 , what is said to be the last development of the Olympic 10 meter rifles. It has an internal recoil reducing mechanism that makes it recoil free. It came without the sights , both front and rear. It had 11mm. dovetail grooves , so I put rings and scope on it. I used a Hawke Vantage 3X9 scope. Like bunching holes precisely in the same place again and again ? This does it. I tested it at about 10 yards , and then moved the target out to 25 yards. What fun to shoot ! .
a model 360, it looks like a model 380 and a beauty it is and Anschutz of that model are a rare find
so good on you
here is some good info
If I wasn't so old I would look for one of these
great shooting and take care
Hello gentlemen. If I may join in your conversation, from what I have learned about the Anschutz LG Match 380, everything the two of you have stated is correct. Many enthusiasts have stated that it is more refined than the venerable FWB 300S. Mike, if you're interested in owning one, I have a beautiful example available for sale. I'm so used to the Yellow Forum, I don't know yet what the protocols are here...can I post my email address for you to contact me? I didn't see your email address in your profile.
p.s. Mike, if you click on my username, my email address is listed in my profile. Please email me if you're interested in seeing photos of my Anschutz LG Match 380. Thank you.
do you have the sight for the rifle????
if not then that price is a bit strong and I hate to say it
a complete 100% condition and the blue book shows them with sights, lists them at 750.00
they came with a 6705 rear sight and they are easy to find on Egun in Germany, it's just a little work
it's a great looking rifle and I hope you have the sights
Hello Mike! Yes, the rifle is complete. I can take some photos ... do you know if it's okay to post them here? I don't want to break any rules. I'll go take some photos right now and check back here for your response. If you want to send me an email message at email@example.com, I would be happy to send the photos there. Talk to you soon! Thank you.
On my behalf , no , the rifle is like the picture , no open sights. Just scope and base and rings. Yes , the value would probably suffer , but how many are out there ? Not for sale anyhow. My pushing 70 year old eyes would not be work with the Olympic open sights. Scope for me ! It is a unique rifle anyhow. Love it !
Hi Sang thanks for the first chance but I have to decline, I have too many airguns that just sit as it is and at almost 68, I'm the one who needs to start selling
and we have email each other before about a cracked stock and how has your Chicago winter been
the front sight you have pictured, that looks like the sight off a Diana model 75 TO1, they were also used on Kimber 82 .22lr rifles and use 15.9mm inserts, maybe I'm wrong
it's a beautiful rifle but I'm not sure how it would get along with my 3 Diana 75's LOL
No problemo Mike. It sounds like we're in the same boat -- I've been in "buy mode" and find that I've purchased more than I can fit into the gun safe! So with recent purchases, I have to sell off a few of them. I hate to do it but I'm NOT going to store them in the closet. Owning two of this model, I was going to sacrifice one -- the MUCH better looking one. The other isn't quite as beautiful but they both shoot one pellet on top of another.
Actually, I've owned this rifle for one year and it's the first time I've even unwrapped the sights. My 55-year old eyes need a scope to shoot well. I have a Diana 75 T01 Universal (scoped) so I'll have to compare the front sights. I love the classic match air rifles. It boggles my mind that they shoot as well as they do with the technology they had back then; those engineers and the men who built the rifles definitely knew what they were doing. The groups from these 30-40 air rifles don't look any larger than some of my current PCP rifles!
I just saw your amended post. Please forgive me for not remembering you without your last name. You're right, I did speak to a few Yellow Forum members about the cracked stock on my Diana 75 T01 Universal. David Slade repaired the stock for me and while the repair isn't invisible, it doesn't bother me because the repair is solid and the rifle shoots so well. We had a few pretty good snow days in Chicago but hopefully, it's all behind us this winter. Looking forward to Spring and Spring Training for the Cubbies. I don't know if you're a baseball fan but with the signing of Yu Darvish, the pitching rotation looks solid!
I went back to the Yellow Forum archives and sho 'nuff, you had some very kind and encouraging words! I'm glad one of us still has a great memory (hint -- it's not me)! 😊
