Meets requirements for ISSF competition
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 up and down (30mm range).
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: 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.
