Thousands of small bore marksmen around the world have had their first experience and their first success using this rifle. The same of a light weight and precise action are attributes also valued by hunters and explains why the ANSCHÜTZ Luxus repeating rifle receives such high marks from both target shooters and hunters alike.

With low noise, high precision, and minimal damage to the game or pelt, they are well suited for more urban areas.
The .17 Hornady Magnum Rimfire (HMR) is one of the fastest rimfire cartridges ever developed and widely considered to be the most perfect, well rounded varmint hunting cartridge ever invented. With a muzzle velocity of 777 m/s (2550 fps) when shooting the 17 grain cop-per jacketed bullet, the .17 HMR offers an extremenly flat trajectory. The cartridge also offers a wide range of bullet choices to suit many different hunting needs. Based on the original .22 WMR rimfire cartridge, the .17 HMR has developed a strong following among varmint and small game hunters around the world. The use of a true copper jacketed bullet made with a high level of precision takes advantage of the ANSCHÜTZ precision match barrel, allowing the shooter to take aim confidently out past 100 meters.
The action is used in the ANSCHÜTZ Luxus repeaters 1416/1417 and 1516/1517. This is a bolt action with cam cocking, claw extractor, additional cartridge holder and ejector.
