My dad inherited what appears to be some sort of imported, possibly altered Anschutz. My grandfather bought it in Canada back in the '60's and it "crossed the border" at some point in the distant past. Anyway, it appears to be a 1416 action and has Anschutz markings, but on the barrel it is marked "C.I.L." which IIRC is Canadian Industries Limited. I can't find anything on this company to determine the true nature of this rifle. Was CIL an importer similar to Century Arms today? Is this an Anschutz barrel, or did CIL simply rebarrel Anschutz actions? Anyone know anything about these guys? I'm cross posting this in the Rifles forum.
