I just picked up this gorgeous FWB 65, ( Thanks Brad and The Yellow ) and would like to mount a scope on it. It already has a scope rail for it.

What scopes are you members using on these fine shooters. 95% of my shooting will be 10-15 yards. Thanks guys.

Recommended FWB 65 Sight

December 3 2017, 9:36 AM 

I recommend a "reflex" type red or green dot sight which I use. Recommend sights with small dots (i.e. 2-3 mil) and variable intensity. The reflex dot sights are very light weight compared to other dot sights..

Bushnell Phantom on my Hammerli made Sig Saur Xesse .22lr to test ammo...it rides extremely low and is actually the length of the pistol slide....a perfect fit....

It's low power 2.5x and works very well in splitting hairs as to which ammo shoots best....
What I like most is that is lightweight, low profile and very " minimalistic"...

I've shot some buddies guns with the 6x or 9x...1 1/2 pound glass mounted sticking up 2 1/2 inches above the barrel....high power scopings on a handgun at arms length wears me out looking for the sight picture and holding up the extra weight...

I shoot my above mentioned Sig with a red dot...that scope is for ammo testing only...too slow acquiring a sight picture...

Just my two and a half cents....
eBay has some Bushnell phantoms up for sale , they usually come with the rim fire type mount built in.

Scoping the FWB 65

December 6 2017, 4:49 PM 

Be advised that the recoil on this recoilless pistol is fairly brutal. That's because the recoiling part of the pistol is very light and accelerators and decelerates very quickly. I have an FWB with a Beeman supplied mount, and discovered that unless you use mounts with a recoil lug, recoil will make the mounts slide off the rail in very few shots, no matter how much you tighten them.

The best mount for the the 65 is the BME:
