The German Anschutz Model 64 MP-R was a bolt-action rifle appearing in 1964 and popularized through its use in vermin game hunting and similar outdoor sporting. The system featured an adjustable match, two-stage (single-stage adjustable) trigger, a heavy-duty barrel, the excellent Anschutz Model 64 action and a universal "beavertail" style ergonomically-shaped stock. Well-contoured throughout, the rifle sported a grooved receiver for optional mounting of telescopic sights for accuracy at range or, in its place, a match rear iron sight could be fitted. The rifle could loaded and unloaded with the safety set while the barrel was given an additional groove for an optional front-mounted iron sight. Bolt-action was accomplished with a cam-cocking system through manual-actuation of the bolt-handle in the traditional sense. The action ejected the spent shell casing currently in the firing chamber and introduced a new cartridge from the 5-round magazine. The firearm was chambered for the .22LR, suitable for hunting small game. Overall weight of the Model 64 was approximately 9lbs and the rifle featured a running length of 43.3 inches.
