Response to its your fault. you guys have been so convincing


the FWB65 (or 80) is the one you won't regret buying, as Mike D has said. Even if you move it on one day it's unlikely you'll be sorry to have owned it for the time you did. The quality of materials and workmanship, the accuracy, the ease of use, the pleasure of being able to see the pellet hit where you aim, the simplicity and ingenuity of the design, the long interval between services, put this pistol in a class all of its own.

There's been no mention so far on this thread of what you might call the "real" Mk1 FWB65: the first pattern of these pistols, which had several differences to later pistols including a short sprung rearsight with fixed leaf, a narrow blued steel trigger and a fixed element front sight. The very first ones had beautiful hand-checkered walnut non-adjustable grips. Later the checkering was replaced by stippling.
