You don't have to shoot at the world-class level to own a world-class airgun! Easy to cock, this ergonomic rifle is extremely accurate, and you'll never be able to out-shoot its potential...even if you're an Olympic contender! Because this rifle is powered by high-pressure air, the cocking lever requires an easy 2 lbs. of effort. To help you get more practice time, the dry-fire capability lets you safely and repeatedly fire the gun.
Engineered by the famous Feinwerkbau factory in Germany, the FWB 700 is suitable for all shooters due to its infinite adjustability. The butt can be adjusted in virtually every direction to accommodate any shooter's needs. The rifle has a raised cheekpiece that's highly adjustable either up or down (30mm range) and canted top to bottom or vice versa (up to 20 degrees). As if that isn't enough, the cheekpiece can be canted left to right by 15 degrees, and the entire unit can be moved 5mm left or right.
The 16.73" barrel is covered by a 25" shroud. It comes equipped with a globe front sight that accepts inserts and a diopter rear sight. These are so fine and such high quality that they cost more than most air rifles!
The 5-way adjustable trigger is considered one of the finest in the world. The dual-range trigger-pull weight adjusts from 30 to 90 grams and from 60 to 150 grams. You can adjust virtually every part of the trigger, including pull-off point, initial travel, finger length, lateral position and trigger slack weight. Best of all, adjustments can be made quickly and easily without any tools and can even be made in the middle of a match!
All this would mean nothing without accuracy, and the FWB 700 has proven itself. With accuracy of 0.04" (center-to-center), you'll leave the competition standing in your wake.
An Olympic rifle needs the best pellets available, which we've rounded up in the AMMO link. Appropriate targets, cleaning gear and safety equipment are listed in the ACCESSORIES link.
Things I liked:I am on the precision rifle team at my high school. and i shoot this exact same rifle. i won 1st place state and 3rd place national. this i the gun to have if you are. into serious 3 position target shooting. The grip goes past the palm of your hand so you get more control and the barrel is a bull barrel. i have shot Hammerli Ar-50's which have a smaller barrel and heaver front weight and that is not as balanced as a thicker barrel. the sights are great. and you can get replacement front aperture that are smaller than the regular. i shoot with a 4.2 in mine and it does wonders. this is the rifle to get if youwant to get into target shooting. Things I would have changed:nothing What others should know:Make sure you have canvas to go along with this rifle because this is nothing like sporter rifles. you need canvas to be more stable on the line
