just called up the FWB website and saw no info on this rifle. If you know where there's more info, let us know where we can find it. Inquiring minds want to know!

This was just unveiled at IWA 2014 in Germany

The guy who took the pics will scan and post the brochure/flyer. No pricing info as of yet. I'd love some specs too! FWB doesn't make anything but quality stuff so I'll follow this with interest.
Looking forward to further info.....

Hope it comes soon. My curiosity is aroused. It's been quite some time since FWB had a sporting air rifle available. I hope it keeps up their reputation for very high quality.
I wished I could get excited

I dont like the wood shape at all. Look at that front taper ,I think it was done with an axe.The monte carlo line goes on forever as if a router ran off .Dont like that checkering either. I bet the specs are terrific but why cant they have a rounded sleeker shaped wood .Harsh ugly trigger guard shape.Cant believe they didnt get rid of those transverse scope stop grooves.Does it really say Feinwerkbau in white on the stock!

answer is GERMAN ENGINEERING

they have always been praised and famed for bold squarer lines and boxier shapes.
there may be something under that stock thats hidden and we wont know till we can get a hand on with it
|March 7 2014, 4:44 PM |
to withhold judgment on the stock til I can hold one. I bet it's comfortable. As to the horizontal scope stop grooves, they are much better aesthetically than two or three vertical holes, especially when exposed. I had a prewar Walther Model 1 with a detachable scope which used the horizontal scope stop. It looked fine without the scope. If you can't manage to cover up the vertical stop holes, they look like plain bad design, whereas the horizontal ones look like a flourish.
Hi Jack, loving your Winchester 427 ! . Are you sure
|March 7 2014, 6:01 PM |
you like that new Feinwerkbau stock over something I designed for my FWB 127D !
Fully glass bedded action
hey--- how did this get here!!!

yours is a very nice stock. I'm not crazy about the stock on the new FWB, but it might look better in person. Really more interested in the mechanical aspects of the new gun. You can always replace a stock if you like the gun otherwise. I have a restocked 124 myself. Not quite as pretty wood as yours.
Well I hope they improved the trigger and the detente

mechanism a little stronger. I personally dont need so much power than the originals already have.The FWB 127D in the picture is moving a 22cal JSB Express 14.3gr pellet at 685 fps (almost 15ft/lbs).Thats like a Benjamin 342 pumped up to 10 times . I was hitting every shotgun hull at the range out to 40 yards and the scope is low powered with no mildots for holdover. I bet I could reach out past 50 yards if I had to. I personally like the low and mid powered airguns.Any PCPer try to best me I just take out my 22 mag and blow them away.LOL! By the way your little Winchester 427 is so smooth shooting and moving JSb RS 13.4gr pellets at 520fps. I think the gun is still breaking in from 1968!! RWS Hobbys 11.9gr were moving at 550fps .I bet the gun weighs no more than 5 1/2-6 lbs.
I hope it has a better trigger design.
|March 7 2014, 5:38 PM |
I loved my 124D, but I always yearned for a better trigger on an otherwise awesome airgun.
Very interesting news!
|March 7 2014, 3:14 PM |
I look forward for more news!
Thank you for sharing,
Holy Cow !!!!!
|March 7 2014, 3:36 PM |
I cant wait till it hits
Looks like AirArms fish scale style checkering and some lines reminiscent of Beneli shotguns and rifles. I would still buy one.
Wow! just when you thought PCP,s were taking over
|March 7 2014, 4:22 PM |
Interesting . Hope the internals and barrel are up to FWB's typically high standards. Looks like a long rifle though- from pics. Hope not too long.

I just emailed the company...nt

Very elegant looking rifle...need more info nt
|March 7 2014, 4:41 PM |
Here are my specs:
|March 7 2014, 4:50 PM |
It will shoot a .177 pellet at around 950 fps with a silky 20 lb cocking effort, vibration free and silent.
It will shoot a .22 pellet at around 850 fps with a silky 20 lb ...........................................
With precision accuracy of less than .08" ctc at 10 meters, all for the cost of, oh around $750............
Too fast, too slow, too much?
Of course I just made this all up
|This message has been edited by VillageSniper on Mar 7, 2014 4:51 PM|
950 fps in .177, but with what pellet?
|March 7 2014, 5:26 PM |
Would like to know the foot pound energy. Thanks.
I want it
|March 7 2014, 5:21 PM |
I had been noodling over what my next airgun ought to be, and it's either this or an FWB 300.
