While at the 2016 SHOT Show, we met with Steve Boelter, from Anschutz North America. We have seen some unique products, geared towards precision varmint hunters, announced in 2015. So, we wanted to see these products first-hand, and also see the new products from Anschutz North America (ANA) at the 2016 SHOT Show. Along with the video from SHOT, where Steve shows us all the new products, we are also including more detailed information below.

New Products from Anschutz North America at the 2016 SHOT Show:
Model 64 Action Rifle with Manners T6 Stock:
ANA announced the release of their Model 64 action rifle, in a Manners T6 stock. The Model 64 is already well-known to the Anschutz community, just as Manners Stocks are known in the hunting/shooting community, for their high-quality composite stocks. This coupling of the two, is sure to make for an excellent shooting rifle combo.
American Varminter Rifle:
The American Varminter Rifle from Anschutz, is a limited run rifle geared towards the American market. The .17HMR version features a 64 bolt action repeater, with a 5098 two-stage trigger, fitted within a gorgeous thumbhole walnut stock. The 18″ medium weight barrel, is threaded 1/2″ x 28 tpi. Lastly, the magazine capacity is 4 rounds, and it weighs a mere 5 pounds, 10 ounces.
8002 S2 Black Air Hunter:
As we reported last September 2015, the Anschutz Black Air Hunter is a hunting air rifle that focuses on accuracy, and not power. It is a very accurate, lightweight, air rifle, that is geared towards small animal pesting, in areas where silence and maneuverability are paramount. The design also allows for practice in areas that will not disturb neighbors. I see this rifle as a tool to hunt small farms with livestock, and around houses (with the owner’s permission), where varmints and pest birds are causing damage. We hunt many farms where lugging a Daystate in, and around livestock, and out buildings, where this rifle would fit right in, while opening up more areas for us to hunt.
