thanks....my next question is this on another post some one said the athletes can move the lever without taking there finger off the trigger did they mean bolt???

They are all .22 LR. Magazines of carried on the stock. I have not seen the clips of this year's matches. When I saw it they had turn bolt or straight pull actions. Heven't seen lever actions. Anschutz is the name in these types of rifles. They are quite pricey. Maybe their site would have some pictures. Only recently did an American wonder why everyone lugged a lot of stock around. He skeletoniized his stock to cut the weight. Now everyone has what they call "Finnish" stocks. (Think that's right.)

I think www.championshooterssupply.com sells them. I know they sell alot of anschutzes. BTW, I think they meant bolt.

link power morphed and activated........ the idea behind the heavy rifle was that its mor accurate because its easier to hold still once you lock your joints.....or something to that effect

Burn, I made that comment. and No, I didn't mean bolt... When I was watching the Biathlon the commentators were talking about a new gun that some of the shooters had and it was a lever action. It seemed as if they pulled the trigger and left their index finger on the trigger and worked the lever with their middle and ring finger. It was neat, and fast too.

Did you happen to notice the air brushed art work on the 10K winners gun today, it was a cheetah, very cool (but not as cool as the usa mens sno-board with the coffin/born to kill art work !!)

I think what you are talking about is a straight-pull (fortner) bolt. Keep in mind that for these .22 rifles, the pull is very short. I have a Feinwerkbau .22 target rifle (similar to Anschuetz, but slightly better IMHO), and even thought the bolt is NOT straight-pull, I can still operate it with one finger. With a straight-pull, this is so much easier. Oh - I just re-read your post, and realize that I have no idea of what you are describing. They operated the action with their middle and ring finger, without moving their trigger finger? Wow - that sounds neat. I didn't notice that when I saw the coverage yesterday and the day before. I hope they show more, because that sounds realyl cool.

DK- Nope, he means lever. There is a new action that a couple of them have. Russian? I think? It is a lever action based on the pistol grip. By moving the grip forward a linkage extracts and cocks the sear. Moving the grip back into firing position feeds a cartridge and closes the bolt. A GREAT idea since neither your hand or trigger finger change position. HTH....SRM

I live and train (X- country skiing, mountain biking) near Canmore (Site of the 88 Olympic X-country ski events) and have personally seen a lot of biathlon skiers train. The gun to which you are referring has a pistol grip (that’s right, Janet Reno would hate it) that moves for and aft in a rocking motion to chamber a fresh round.

I should add that these specific type of guns a rare bread in the sport. I have seen them though.

Bling bling! [img]http://www.championshooters.com/1907_2213.JPG[/img] Also available gold plated, for those biathletes that shoot their weapons canted at a 90 degree angle. Viper Out

Two things, in case anyone didn't already know: 1)there's now a summer time biathalon. One runs instead of skiing. 2) Marlin makes two models of these type rifles for us working-types. I own the model 2000L & cannot believe the accuracy!!! Pictures are on their web site, I'm sure.

Need to ban these! Who the hell needs guns like these? They serve no use to the regular folks in the country....hehehehehehe [BD]

Although, as I understand it, the summer biathletes don't carry their rifles with them, correct?

You know I was sitting here drinking my coffee and I just thought of something..... I'm surprised that the tree huggers don't go nuts about the brass that falls on the ground from these things! You'd think if they were at the top of their game they'd be on it like stink on shit.... Next winter Olympics I bet they have brass catchers on them....

BobCole, I also have those Marlins and they're great. I used the old kevlar Blue Marlin 2000 for 3 postion years ago, and I just picked up the 2000L. I too can't believe just what good shooters those weapons are. I'm pleased and would recomend them to anyone.

This is a free rifle. The gold plated ones they give to the gold medal winners for using an Anschutz.
