Anschutz SuperAir 2002

Post by acorneau »

Here's a few pictures of my new-to-me Anschutz SuperAir 2002 SSP.

I removed the aperture sights and put on the scope as I'll be using this as my air rifle silhouette Target rifle, although I might have to try out the aperture sights for some traditional 10 meter targets at some point.

Pardon my ignorance, but I'm still relatively new to air rifles so I don't know what "FAC" is and don't know the conversions for foot/pounds.

I believe it's supposed to run somewhere between 550 and 575 feet/second but I don't have a chronograph to verify the speed.

I think he means "FireArms Certificate". In more restricted countries, anything that has a muzzle energy of greater than 12 ft/lbs is classified as a firearm.

I don't have any airguns that go over 590fps. Theyre all 10m stuff with velocity that's tuned to the barrel to put pellets through one hole at 10m. Unless there was some sort of powerfactor required to put fieldtarget targets down, that velocity adjustment screw is probably best left to factory tune.

After giving this some thought I must confess you got taken. I'll gladly help you out by taking it off your hands for a hundred bucks and a pink red Ryder. You will be much happier.

Nah, they're in the $600 to $900 range for the SSP like mine and the newer compressed-air version is $1,000 to $1,400.

FWIW, you can shoot ragged hole groups at 50 meters all day with the aperture sights on an Anschütz if the front insert is the appropriate size for the target, at least their rimfire rifles. I had a 1907 for Olympic Style 3-Position once upon a time.

Dang. I'd have to sell a few rifles to buy one of those. Neat looking, though.

Yes, a few times and it's great. I have a few minor things to fix/upgrade but it's ridiculously accurate with an imperceptible amount of recoil. You can watch the pellet fly through the air and hit the target.

I have a different scope mount on the way (BKL-254H) because the offset difference in the scope mounting dovetails is causing issues with the scope's adjustments. I'll post another picture once it's remounted.

Shoulda kept my Walther side-lever from the 70's, but I sold it on in the UK when we left. Gorgeously accurate little thing. I hate, hate, HATE those PCP things.....

That Anschutz looks gorgeous!

I changed out the individual rings for a BKL-254H (high) cantilevered mount and it's practically the exact same ring spacing as before but without the issue of the lowered front scope dovetail.

Image


I edited this photo to show the clearance of the breech-block lever with the high BKL rings/mount (the rings and the one-piece mount are the same height). Not trying to be artistic, but the contrast of the black-and-white shows the separation of the handle and the mount better than the color version. The BKL high mount/rings are the perfect solution to scope the 2002.
