    I have looked for an Anschütz Stutzen, a Mannlicher stocked carbine, with a 54 action for a long time. I finally found one.

    This is not my first 54 and won't be the last, I hope!

    Just a tad north of a grand. But I do not regret this. I love it as much, or more, than my 1969 Korth revolver in .22.

    Fancy rifle. Just curious, is there any performance advantage that a Mannlicher stock offers or is just for like personal preference?

    The Mannlicher stock does not offer better performance, probably worse heat dissipation, but was used in the German mountains to (supposedly) better protect the barrel.

    The accuracy of this rifle can be contributed to the 54 action, the heavy barrel, and the double set triggers.
