1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

    Vintage, arguably, collectible, definitely.

    So after 2 years of looking ive found my baby, i brought it from the original owner, i comes with the original owners booklet, the receipt may still surface, but the box is gone, which im not too sure whether im happy or unhappy about as it would be arguably worth as much or more than the gun.

    lts had a total of approx 1000 pellets through it, been apart once a Venom, has a trigger that is a joy and shoots like it should. lt has a couple tiny nicks on the stock and a 1mm mark on the barrel. lm not going to mess with it at all, would rather it kept its originality.

    Was $299.99 new, it does not have the Beeman markings on it like its American counterparts.

    All in all a very happy Boy! Will scan and upload the owners booklet later, when im done shooting

    Cheers

    Nice solid looking rifle that!!

    I remember them being expensive, and very difficult to pronounce :confused:, but I may be wrong.

    The main thing is that you enjoy shooting the thing:):)

    I had a Feinwerkbau Sport 127 but the standard version not the deluxe,mechanically identical apart from the stock.Shot my first rabbit with it back in the late 70s.Good well balanced gun but let down a bit by the trigger,came from the factory with a plastic trigger blade and the trigger action had some creep in it but other than that a very good gun,very consistent and an excellent barrel.

    The one my Father had back in the day that i was allowed to use on occasion was a Mk1, i seem to remember that had a pig of a trigger, this is a Mk II i don't know how they came from the factory like this or whether this was a Venom mod, but now it has a distinct 2 stage trigger, and as nice or nicer than any i can remember, it reminds me of a L42A1

    Only shot it out of the window today as it was raining, yes mock lol, we've all been there, even brought a hard case for it today, that has never happened before :)

    Cheers

    Mine ,which i bought new, must have been a MK1.The MKII obviously must have a different trigger,changed probably because the MK1 trigger took quite a bit of criticism.You could at the time replace the plastic trigger on the MK1 with a aftermarket metal one(alloy) but it didn't get rid of the creep.

    A nice buy there,a few clean examples have surfaced recently.Does it say mk11 on the breach by the way?Trying to find at what serial number the mk11 started.I read some mk1's had metal trigger fitted as an upgrade.

    Congratulations on your new delivery!

    I've recently become interested in airgunning again after 35y as we're purchasing a new house with a cpouple acres and some resident rabbits that will decimate my planned veg plot. I've just got out my FWB 124 MkII deluxe complete with ASI 4x40 scope and fired a few test shots yesterday. It still feels as good as it did when I was a teenager! I recall coming across the green booklet not too long ago but I can't for the life of me remember where - it'll turn up! I doo like the look of som eof those new fangled guns though!

    There are some other differences,between the Mk 1 & 2 ive noticed,

    1;Recoil pad is different
    2,Checkering is different, the outside edge is a smooth curve on the Mk1 & has a 'point' on the Mk2
    3,Safety is Different
    4, Foresight is different
    5,Trigger is different

    Have emailed FWB with same question re #s

    l have no stamping, do you have the same forsight, trigger & safety catch?

    Hopefully the factory will be able to shed some light on it, who knows may different markets. The US models had Beeman or some such stamped on the breach, which to me would be like putting a Yugo 45 badge on yer M3, well ok, perhaps not that bad, they make great sights ;)

    Cheers

    P.S, l found this post which is a good sign; ''Find out when any FWB was made by emailing info@feinwerkbau.de and telling them the model and serial number. They aren't too fast to reply, but they always do''

    Landymick, have you mounted scopes on any of yours? Can it be done without scratching the bluing?

    Cheers
