Anschutz MSR RX22 Coming to USA.

    Unveiled last year in Europe, the Anschutz MSR RX22 is now being imported into the United States by Steyr Arms. The Anschutz MSR RX22 was jointly developed by Anschütz, German Sport Guns and ESC Ulm. It is essentially a ISSC MSR MK22 upgraded with Anschütz trigger and barrel, turning it from a plinker/trainer into a competition/hunting rifle.

    The MSR RX22 barrels are manufactured to the same exacting tolerances of Anschütz’ target barrels with a special button-rifling process. The barrel also features a recessed target crown. The single-stage trigger’s components are hardened and finely ground to produce a fast trigger with a very consistent release. The trigger can be adjusted from 3.3 to 5.5 lbs., and it is set at 4 lbs. by the factory.

    The MSR RX22 was designed for ease of use for either a left- or right-handed shooter. The cocking handle can be located in any of three positions on either side of the rifle for a total of six possible cocking-handle locations. The trigger-locking safety is easily engaged by way of a large selector switch on either side of the rifle.
