    I picked up a bolt-action .22 rifle from a high school buddy for an acceptable price ($100).
    It's marked "Anschutz-Savage Modell 1415/16" (No typo!) above "cal..22 Long Rifle" on the right side of the barrel. Left side has "J.G. Anschutz GMBH, Waffenfabrick Ulm/D, West Germany", also a marking very small, followed by 65 and a "crown" or similar. Receiver has a four digit number on it.
    Any thoughts on this rifle are appreciated, it has nice bluing, wood is a little dinged up in places, was used for squirrel hunting previously.
    I looked a bit on "Rimfirecentral.com" but didn't find much there. I'd like to find another magazine for it, will look at Numrich for that. And any manuals.
    Any pointers on where to dig for more info are appreciated.
    Thanks in advance, and happy holidays!

    Acceptable price? If it is in decent shape, you pretty much stole it.
    On the lesser Model 64 action it is still a darned nice little rifle. The "65" is probably the year made as part of the German proof marks.

    All late model Anschutz repeaters use the same magazine. Probably

    but safest to call and ask before you buy.

    stonecoldy ..found this info for you ... looks like the 1416 manual will do for your rifle ..

    Anschutz 1400 Match 64

    Notes: This series dispensed with the primitive Flobert action of earlier Anschutz rifles. The1400 Match 64 Target Rifle series uses a single-shot action, with no magazine and equipped with match aperture sights. The Model 1403 uses a match-grade trigger, and the stock is designed specifically for prone shooting; it uses a low fore-end, with an adjustable buttplate. The trigger is adjustable. The Model 1403 Biathlon has a plain butt with a non-adjustable buttplate, and equipment for biathlon shooters, such as a special harness/sling and covers for the sights to keep snow out. The Model 1403D has a non-adjustable trigger. (Both are identical for game purposes). The Model 1403 Rep is a magazine-fed bolt-action version.

    The Model 1415 is a sporting variant of the 1400 series. It has rounded contours as opposed to the flat contours of the Target Rifles, and uses a much shorter barrel. It is fed from a magazine and is a bolt-action weapon. It has an adjustable trigger; the 1415D is similar, but has a non-adjustable trigger. The 1416 is also similar, but use a more finely-adjustable trigger that has a crisper pull. Again, the 1416D is similar, but with a non-adjustable trigger. (Both are identical to the 1415 for game purposes.) The 1418 is a version with a full-length Mannlicher-style stock with sling swivels, as well as a shorter barrel, and the trigger is typically non-adjustable, though some adjustable-trigger versions were available.

    I wanted to thank you guys for sending those links and explaining the variants of this rifle. I have had this rifle for over a year and haven't shot it yet, just wiped it down and ran some patches through the bore to assure it was fairly clean and protected.
    If the value might be more than I expected, so much the better. My friend was "forced" to pare his collection down from around a dozen rifles, shotguns and pistols to a single pistol by his wife-to-be. Now he can't ever make our spring fishing trips or fall grouse trips. If you let yourself be punished like that, so be it, pile it on.
    I'll try to put a couple pictures up over the holidays and see what everyone thinks.
    Have a good one!
