Anschutz Introduces MSR RX22

Steyr Arms is importing the latest small-bore training and hunting rifle produced by Anschutz, which is best known for Olympic competition rifles.


Anschutz, the well-known competition rifle company, has introduced a small-bore training and hunting rifle—the MSR RX22. With a target barrel and competition-inspired trigger, the MSR RX22 is a full-featured, precision .22-caliber rifle.

Built in a partnership between three German companies—Anschutz, German Sport Guns and ESC Ulm—to be a precision shooting .22, the MSR RX22 is an accurate self-loading rifle with excellent performance and reliability, operating on a force-locking, blowback system with a hammer lock.

The barrels are manufactured to the same tolerances of Anschutz target barrels, with button rifling and a recessed target crown. The components of the single-stage trigger are hardened and ground for a fast trigger with a consistent release between 3.3 to 5.5 pounds.

The MSR RX22 is available in four versions for left- or right-handed shooters, with a cocking handle capable of six locations and an ambidextrous safety. All four versions have a full-length Picatinny rail for mounting the included flip-up sights or additional optics, and the rifle is available with a 10-round detachable magazine through Steyr Arms for $895.

Just bought one, put a target 16x50 optic scope on it. Started zeroing on bulls eye of target, at 90 ft on 3' target circle, constant 9, 10, and bull very on par with bolt action anshutz at same distance, use only ammo above 900 fps or blow back won't be strong enough to eject case out of ejector. Otherwise a seriously good rifle.
