Anschutz 1761 HB Bolt action rifle is designed with the sporting shooter and hunter in mind, functioning as a magazine fed bolt-action repeating rifle. The 1761 features a new bolt design, specifically smoother operation while maintaining a short lift bolt. This design was based on two key elements, ergonomics and reliability. Anschutz opted to slightly increase the bolt lift from 53 to 60 degrees as a trade-off in order to move the locking lugs from the rear to the middle of the bolt. There is a new safety design as well, the safety mechanism is very similar to the older trigger system with the safety blocking the release of the catch link in the trigger, but Anschutz completely changed the way the operation switch functions. These feature a much larger improved grip, and the amount of pressure required to operate the switch is greatly reduced. Now the safety can be easily operated, and in hunting situations, it can be operated slowly for a nearly silent function.
