Anschutz MSR RX22: Modern Sporting Rifle

    Earlier this year Anschutz unveiled their first tactical-style semi-automatic target rifle. The Anschutz MSR (Modern Sporting Rifle) RX 22 is clearly inspired by the AR-15 design. It has an upper aluminum receiver and lower polymer receiver. The folding stock and handguard is made from an attractive grey laminate wood. UPDATE: The MSR RX22 is a variant of the ISSC MSR MK22.

    The upper receiver is grooved for Anschutz 6834 front and rear target sights but also has a picatinny rails for mounting optics. The charging handle can be can be moved into 6 different positions (you can see the holes for the charging handle above the handguard in the photo above).

    I really like this design and in typical Anschutz style I am sure is it super accurate, which will appeal to benchrest shooters in the USA.
