Anschutz target rifles are numbered in a two part sequence, the first two digits indicate series, the last two, the type and stock configuration of the rifle: 07, 09 rifles have a light barrel, 10, 11 and 13 have a heavier barrel and are marked "supermatch" on the barrel.

14 series started in the 1960s and is characterised by a tab on the rear of the bolt which performs the function of safety by restraining the firing pin in the cocked position.

18 series started in late 1970's, through to late 90's, rear of bolt is tapered dome with firing pin red indicator that protrudes when cocked.m18 series used a lighter firing pin to reduce lock time and a significantly improved trigger.

19 series started in late 90's, differs from 18 series only in the foresight mount. 18 series is a dovetail attached to barrel with screws. 19 series is machined into the barrel, which is flared for the last 1.5" to accommodate.
