Quality Anschütz MODEL 8002 Air Rifle from CMP

At my club’s recent 7-gun shoot (see report below), this editor had a chance to try out a high-end Air Rifle shooting .177 Pellets. I came away very impressed. Dead-quiet and very accurate, a match-grade air rifle allows one to train in the backyard, or even indoors with a bullet trap. If you’re looking for a great deal on a premium-grade air rifle, the Civilian Marksmanship Program offers the Anschütz Model 8002. This is a full-size club rifle fitted with the superb, fully-adjustable Anschütz 9003 trigger and Anschütz 6834 sight set. The ambidextrous stock (for both right- and left-handed shooters), boasts an adjustable cheekpiece and butt-plate. The CMP logo is engraved on the right side of each stock. The rifle is supplied with normal accessories including air cylinder, additional carrier bolts (longer), refill adapter, 5 Allen wrenches, extra set of O-rings, barrel weight, instruction booklet, and original test group. The large compressed-air cylinder allows 300 shots of .177 pellets per charge.

Anschutz 8002 CMP Air Rifle

If you are looking for a high-quality, ultra-quiet short-range training rifle, the $1195.00 CMP model 8002 is hard to beat. You should easily pay nearly as much just for equivalent sights, trigger and stock. Sales are available to CMP clubs and individuals who belong to CMP clubs (must provide membership card or have card on file). If you don’t have your CMP card yet, it is relatively easy to qualify by shooting a match at a CMP-affiliated club.
