I was watching the skiing/shooting biathlon part of the Winter Olympics this morning, it was pretty cool. For anyone who doesn't know about it, you have to do some cross-country skiing with a rifle slung over your back and then stop at a target range, shoot five targets, go around again, shoot five more targets, etc. I know they were using .22s, but I've never seen the rifles they were using before. Anyone know what gun they were using?

I think most of them use highly customized Anschutz rifles. Very pricey.

My kids and I were in Lake Placid last summer at the biatholon range $12 for 10 shots! They told us that the guns were about $2,000 each. German, can't spell.. The young lady was probably there is year.
