    I don't see much talk about these rifles for FT??

    Is it because of price or are there POI shifts with this rifle, or both?

    POI shifts – which in my past experience with other Olympic match platforms has been a common problem, and one that I despise above all?

    So is this a yay or nay to buy for FT?

    From what I heard POI shifts with temperature.

    Also, it is a port from 10m gun and not a gun designed for FT from ground up.

    Thomas FT better deal for that kind of money

    I saw that Krale had this on sale for $2742.40 so the price was what made me get tempted to try one. 

    I bet the trigger and ergo's are among the best…

    Do you get the warranty when buying it from Krale?

    Heck if I know.

    I had called Pilk and they don't import these.

    Neither does Anschutz America.

    I think Tyler Patner had one. Hope he shares his insight.

    Pyramid Air sells one for almost 5K. They get it from Anschütz North America with a very steep mark up. 3 month wait if it’s not in stock.

    Anschutz North America website has a PDF file with the 2019 price list. On page 15, item 014626 Anschutz 9015 One FT is listed for $4,295.

    Oh darn, I got confused with the Steyr ProX which I've also been researching, that's what I called Pilk and AA about.

    I opted for the Thomas when told about the possible 10-15fps jump when temps go up. I don't regret it one bit.

    I own a 9015 HP ONE FT, as well as a handful of other Anschutz PCPs.  They're all relatively the same internally after the 8001.  I've been inside all of them, and feel I have a pretty good understanding of what it takes to get one truly match ready.  

    The rifle (like any with a two piece action design in my experience) will exhibit POI shifts, unless you get a bridge style scope mount (that's what I've gone with) or a mount that attaches to the front half of the breech only.  Both work in solving the two piece action shift and are not too expensive or difficult to deal with.  A rail can be had domestically from M-werks for around $100.  If you want to go to AJP overseas, they're a bit more expensive once you factor shipping.  

    My major issue with the rifle is that the velocity will shift with temp changes.  This is due to the rather small post reg volume in the factory configuration.  This is something that has been documented as far back as the old 2020 and 2025 models.  Still a relatively easy solution, open up more post reg volume….that was a fun project in terms of determining how much to open it up and the resulting stability.  At this point, I've had the same volume opened up on 5 Annies I owned and it solves the temp sensitivity.  Just as an example, stock a 9015 HP will drop about 50 fps if the temp falls from 70F to 40F.  Once modified, with the reg and hammer spring adjusted accordingly, the shift is less than 10-15 fps in the same temp drop…which I would consider normal for most other PCPs.  

    Hands down, best trigger I have ever owned.  Rifle is super accurate, and extremely dead to shoot which I love as well.  The adjustments are everything you could want and more, though because of the vast amount of adjustments, it will likely take more time to get set up just right.  Despite the adjustments, machining and experimenting I had to do to get the gun to a point I was truly happy with it, I still enjoy shooting it and would put it up against most other guns performance wise.  For what a new one costs in the US, I wouldn't even consider it.  For what you can get the gun for overseas, it's certainly worth considering, though you'd want to factor in a few hundred dollars more for the modifications/parts.  Personally, if I was going to start over and do it all again, I would find a used 8002 s2 or 9003 for a better price and modify it.  

    If you have any other questions, or want more information shoot me a PM, I'd be happy to help.

    The 2 piece receiver problem dates way back to the 2002 model. Myself and Dave Matticks were the first guys that came up with the idea foe a stiffening rail. Dave made them with droop and holes for Leupold quick disconnect bayonet rings. He prolly sold 100 of them. I still own and enjoy my 2002 with black/grey Gary Cane stock.

    Another Anschutz issue is to use synthetic oil on hammer to control fps due to viscosity issues related to temperature. I use AmsOil compressor lube to solve any issues and lube the hammer. Viscosity remains the same over a HUGE range.

    Hi Don,

     

    Glad you reminded about the synthetic oil to help with viscosity on the hammer!  I'm working on a couple guns with "hammer" (striker piston) and had forgotten that trick.

    When I put em back together I'll lube that way.

    Hi ld,

    I remember you used to have a bottle of Whale Oil that was ok for some applications.

    Still got that oil?

    Thanks all for the comments and advice, especially Tpatner412. 

    I didn't realize that the 9015 action was two piece which ruins it for me. I had the FWB 800 basic which had POI shifts even with the special mount. 

    What lures me to these Olympic match rifles is the awesome triggers and all the chassis adjustments. I think I could pick up a hit or two each FT match if I had such a rifle with the trigger set exactly how I like and the rifle fitting perfectly. 

    You'd think that Anschutz and FWB would have changed their entire action design by now??? 

    I did see that Anschutz has designed a new rimfire action, the 1761, which addressed most of the issues I didn't like about the 54 and 64 actions. Though I hope the quick change barrel attachment is a solid design.

    My first firearm as a boy was a Anschutz 22 mag, and have owned 5 more since, so I have a passion for the Co. Now own a Fortner 1827F biathlon which is one incredible rifle. Actually Fortner/Anschutz later made the 1727F which allowed for normal scope mounting, so again the Co does make changes as time marches on.

    Well I'll hold off and see what happens down the road.
