It was an Anschutz. It weighed about 12 lbs, was very well balanced (I seriously could have balanced it on two fingers at the middle of the rifle), was a .22lr, and had redfield international sights. The rear aperature was adjustable with a lever (worked like a shutter on a camera), had a disk that you rotated to change the filter you looked through (blue, yellow, green, and clear), had a 2 oz trigger (had a set trigger as well), and was modified for single shot only. The front sight was about 3 inches long, and had a ring instead of a post sight.

The only modifications it had on it other than that was a new barrel that was put on after it won the medal. I will end up inheriting this rifle unless my old man sells it because he is very down on his luck (I will make an offer for it if he does sell it). I so want to shoot it now that I have put hands on it.

Wait, I forgot, it was originally capable to use a magazine, but was modified to be single shot only.

MODS - Please move this to competition shooting. I had a brain fart and put it in rifles.

KTHNXBYE
