I'm hoping some of you Anschutz folks can help me. My dad has recently gotten on an Anschutz "kick" and bought several .22s. He's got one that he is willing to let me have/borrow, and said it's a youth model. He wasn't certain about the model number, but thought it was 1450 or 1455. Are either of those models a "youth"-type rifle? If not, what Anschutz models are? Thanks!

The Kadett is considered a youth model, but was only made in 1987... they are a super little rifle if you can find one. The 1449D is a youth and the Achiever followed the Kadett and has an adjustable LOP. May be other models too, like the 1451 is a pretty small sporter, but may have a slightly longer LOP.

Of the ones I have shot (1- Kadett and 2- 1451s), the Kadett was the best. I believe they all used the small Anschutz action.... smaller than the 64.

Dad broke down and looked at the actual rifles. He's got a 1400 and a 1450. Any opinions or info on either one? Photos?

I believe the 1400 and 1450 are earlier models than the ones I mentioned above and I'm unsure whether they use the smaller Anschutz action or the 64. Many of the rifles from that era were made in partnership with Savage in the US, some were made in Germany. Some say Savage-Anschutz and some say Anschutz-Savage.

The 1450 is a little more valuable, in equal condition, than the 1400.

Check here, you might find some good info: http://www.shootersc...ue.com/manuals/
