Things I liked:Observations from a New Air Rifle user, with 3 months experience in the hobby. I have serial number 34. What a beautiful Rifle, lightweight and very accurate, equal or bests my RWS Diana Model 54 and three pounds less! I prefer the trigger feel as well. High quality rifle, and worth the price IMO.
Things I would have changed:FWB should offer a front sling mount like the ones I have seen in pictures from the original 124. I emailed FWB and inquired about a front sling mount, and today I received a reply informing they do not have one. (which I already guessed, since there is no indication of one) The barrel is too nice IMO to mount a clamp around style mount.
What others should know:Its my understanding that the recommended scope mounts are from Sports Match. I purchased Model OP22, mounted a Vortex Diamondback 4-12x40mm scope and the included covers, along with Vortex, and Butler Creek flip up would not fit because of limited clearance to barrel. Swapped scopes with my Model 54, and the Nikon Prostaff Target EFR 3-9x40 AO is a better fit. Would find what scope's and setups (pictures would be a big plus) others use would be great. Thanks
Things I liked:This is part 1 of my review. Chrony Readings are: 923.00 13.43 937.00 13.85 942.00 13.99 950.00 14.23 935.00 13.79 I will do some more readings after she is broken in, there readings are comparable to my R11 out of the box. Now to the rifle: I got serial number 12400030, I am guessing I got the 30th rifle off the line. I have small hands and not very tall. The rifle felt light and not wide like the TX200. I like automatic safeties, and this one delivers. The safety will be good for both right handed and left handed shooters, just push it forward. The Monte Carlo stock is also ambidextrous and shoulders very nice. The fish scaling is very comfortable. This trigger is not even broken in and it is as good as the TX200 CD, HW Rekord, & RWS T06 triggers. I am not an open sight person but these are really nice. I will clean the rife this week end, and try to get 500 shots down the tube and will continue from there.
Things I would have changed:Yes the spring has noise (it is not twang but noise), she even has a cocking noise, but after shooting a while I am sure this will go away. I hope it all will go away after 1500 shots, but with that only time will tell. I hope she breaks in like my R11 did. My opinion is it should be smoother out of the box like the TX200. It seems to be lacking a little molly on the spring.
What others should know:I have not cleaned the rifle yet, but I do have some results. http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0220_zps39aaf402.jpg.html?sort=3&o=7 http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0221_zps1ded8cda.jpg.html?sort=3&o=6 http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0222_zpsc6e84f61.jpg.html?sort=3&o=5 http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0223_zps128b6505.jpg.html?sort=3&o=4 http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0224_zps7f803efe.jpg.html?sort=3&o=3 http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0225_zpsa57af7d6.jpg.html?sort=3&o=2 20 yards with open sights, please excuse the yellow shot that was all me and not the rifle. http://s1291.photobucket.com/user/Philidor58/media/DSCF0226_zps3da92965.jpg.html?sort=3&o=1 I think she will be a shooter.
