Re: FWB Model 2

I also have a "compact" Model 2 like yours - it is a superb little pistol that shoots really well. I also have a standard length Model 2 and that is also really nice to shoot and very accurate ( far better than this shooter!). You can buy new Feinwerkbau CO2 filling adapters from Buinger online - th...

Re: The Mysterious East!

Wonkey Donkey was the guy who ended-up fixing Robin's Titan for him as he had all of the parts that were needed in stock and had the experience to get it back together and working successfully again. Not all FWB parts (the seemingly obvious first place to check for spares) fit this pistol so this ma...

Re: Running Boar FWB 300

The more unusual variants of the Feinwerkbau 300S are becoming very desirable and are increasing in value. It is also getting harder to find really nice examples at affordable prices although with the way things are going even the higher prices being asked may well turn out to be a good future inves...

Re: starting a 10m club: what needs to be done

Quick / possibly dumb question. aside from the obvious,(place to shoot/members) what needs to be done in terms of setting up / running an indoor 10m air pistol/rifle club in terms of governing bodies and insurance? I have set up and run several air weapons clubs since the early 1970's and it really...

Re: Thursday Nights at the Rossendale Club.

It is nice to see some new interest in 10 meter air rifle shooting at RMTC and so I have taken my Walther 300 Anatomical "out of storage" and look forward to giving it a some regular exercise at the club on Thursday nights. The arrival of a new member with a Feinwerkbau 601 at the club is very encou...

Re: Dukinfield Airgun Club

I hope Tony can find another home for his club very soon and that this bad experience does not force him to give up with the loss of yet another good club facility for air gunners to use and enjoy. It is hard enough to run an air weapons club when things are going well - and even then it is often di...

Re: Classic Pistols at British Bisley Air Gun Championships

Previously the NSRA Air Weapons Championships were held at the Sophia Gardens in Cardiff. I was lucky enough to enter and shoot air pistol there a few times in the 1970's and it certainly was an eye opener to see just how big these events are and it was good to see exceptionally talented shooters li...

Re: Webley Junior Air Pistol - help needed.

The tap I used to recut /clean-up the pivot screw thread on my Webley Junior was actually an M5. :o I had a set of these taps for years ( originally bought during a visit to the Harrogate Model Engineers Exhibition). The "taper" ( no 1) and "intermediate" (no2) taps were not needed as the "plug" tap...

Re: HW70

The HW70 is a nice target pistol but it is not suitable for hunting rats or for hunting anything else and I guess your question about the pistols ability to punch holes in steel cans is another power related question that suggests a rifle may be more suitable for your requirements. No air pistol is ...

Re: Steyr LP1 and LP1P

I'm certain they were prototypes so you have a good find, you do of course have Harry in your area so he may well have had some as well as Steyr do very much respect his view, all the current Steyr compacts come from an idea by Harry and he did actualy make the first one as a special. Have just wat...

Re: Steyr LP1 and LP1P

Hi Bob If the alloy Co2 cylinder you have is the one I sent you, that is not a production cylinder it was a prototype that they supplied to a few elite shooters, and I don't think they were ever for sale. The one I sent you was from a well known club member of ours and it was used on one of our clu...

Re: Webley Junior - match grade trigger !

This sad little Junior pistol is now a lot happier and shooing really well. However I may have overdone the polishing a bit as it now has a "match grade trigger" :doh: I will take it to RMTC tomorrow night as it could be good fun with some Hobby pellets at 6 yards - and I am sure it will surprise an...

Re: SKAN

That looks trick Phil - and very compact too.

Any chance of giving it a proper "Bacup Look" (hands on) at the club tomorrow night by any chance? :pray:

I can bring the SKAN so we can have a play ( I also need to check my LP10E as it is using far too much gas)
