The 1781 HUNTER model - caliber .308 Win.
This hunting repeater is a tried and tested sporting rifle which can meet
the countless demands encountered in the field. As is usual with all ANSCHÜTZ rifles, the Model 1781 impresses with precision and an outstanding two-stage trigger.
The 1781 anniversary model is equipped with a fluted barrel and muzzle threading. The M15x1 thread enables problem-free, accurate fitting of a sound moderator or a muzzle flash suppressor. The fluting on the barrel increases the surface area and thus dissipates heat during shooting quickly and efficiently. Consequently the problems caused by heat, in particular the mirage above the barrel, is reduced thus improving sight picture.

The adjustable cheek piece
With the adjustable cheek piece on the 1781 HUNTER anniversary model, the hunter can adapt the cheek height to his individual requirements. In some ways a factory-standard stock is always a compromise, as during the development and dimensioning of the stock the attempt is made to reach the greatest possible spectrum of hunters. But since every person has his own body mass and expectations of a stock, and uses individual sight sets, optimum adaptation of the stock to the hunter is important. This is possible by means of either expensive stock customising or a stock that is adjustable to individual requirements.
