Anschutz 1516 D HB Classic
The models of the series 1516 in cal. .22 WMR have a long tradition at Anschutz. This classic caliber with a bullet diameter of 5.5 mm was launched by Winchester in 1959. It is extraordinarily suitable to be used for small animals up to the size of a fox at a distance of up to 100 m.
Some modifications were carried out in the area of the receiver. The external diameter was enlarged from 25 mm to 26 mm. This modification entails 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 stock is a well-balanced, handy classical hunting stock made of walnut.
With straight comb without cheek piece, non-slip checkering on pistol grip and forend. Lacquered with black synthetic butt plate and sling swivel studs.
