    Things I liked: Given that the Basic uses the same mechanicals as the higher cost 700's, it is a real bargain. Particularly like the vertically opening breech: allows me to use right or left hand to reload, I use left for standing, right for prone, harder to do in other air guns of this class. Accuracy is equal to the other 700's: will put 3 shots in the same hole repeatedly. Lighter weight than the metal stock guns makes long standing matches less tiring,

    Things I would have changed: Cheek rest is a throwaway, designed for ambidextrous use, but good for neither. Making a new one, mine from a piece of cherry, is not hard, and allows customization of the fit. FWB should market a replacement. Lack of sight height adjustment a nuisance, have to buy your own sight risers, which then means you have to have a new cheek rest.

    What others should know: Altogether, this gun is great: in my first 3 months shooting air guns, I made highest standing score of all our Senior Olympic shooters, after 50+ years not target shooting at all. This a very good gun to shoot.
