The Anschutz MSR is the ISSC’s MSR MK22

    It will shock many to you to learn that once or twice in my life I have made a mistake1 . Yesterday you bore witness to that rare occurrence. I blogged about the Anschutz MSR RX22 but completely missed the fact that is it clearly a variant of ISSC’s MSR MK22 rifle patterned after the FN SCAR.

    In retrospect, I don’t know how I missed that! In my defense, the last time I fired the MSR MK22 was about 18 months ago, and I have a bad memory! Fortunately I have you, my intelligent readers, to catch my mistakes quickly.

    I suspect the reason Anschutz licensed another gun is that the ISSC’s MSR MK22 can be produced much cheaper than their .22 semi-automatic Model 520.

    1. Thats a joke. I make LOTS of mistakes.
