Anschutz Achiever .22 rifle
 
My first rifle was an Anschutz Achiever that my dad bought for me when I was nine. Nice hardwood stock, hooded front sight, adjustable buttplate. I absolutely loved it and thought it was the best rifle in the world.

It got sold a few years back and I've decided to buy one to pass down to my son.

I can't find one. ANYWHERE.

Now I'm searching desperately to find one, and I'm afraid I may be S.O.L.

I think this was also known as the 1451, and there was a single shot, and a box magazine model.

Anyway, get out yer checkbook. Anschutz 1451 22 Lr Sporter : Bolt Action at GunBroker.com

If you have never done an internet firearms purchase, you will need to have a dealer in your home state that will recieve the rifle for you. Most charge $25-$100 for that. Gunbroker home page has a "find a FFL" function.

I believe the 1451 may be the same rifle, only with a different stock. The one on GB that you provided the like for sure looks like a fine rifle that's in good shape to boot. I may have to seriously consider that one.

Here's a few pics of the achiever.

If you are still looking you are in luck. I have one that I bought for my daughter when she was 15 but does not shoot it any more. It is in excellent shape, no dings or scratches and the bluing is 100% If you are interested let me know

ManInBlack, Thanks for your interest. Since I cannot sell it directly it is on consignment with Purcell Custom Firearms at 540-661-3392 for details and shipping information. You will not be disappointed in this rifle which includes a 3x9 scope

Talked to Ned this morning and USPS money order is on it's way to Purcell's. Thanks for giving me the heads up on your Achiever. There is going to be one VERY happy little boy this Christmas!

ManInBlack, thanks for the update. You will not be disappointed with the gun and I hope the price was reasonable. More that that your son will really enjoy his first 22 this Christmas. My daughter enjoyed shooting it and now it makes me happy that your son will enjoy it. Send me an update when the gun is in your hands. Thanks.
