It happened last Saturday and if you were there you saw what I am about to report. If you missed it, too bad, because I think it was the best show yet.
Airgun shows usually have a theme; this one had several. Airguns that are never seen was one of them. Let’s start there.
Reader JerryC laid an FWB 110 on my table for display throughout the show. How rare is it? Well, this is the first one I have seen.
It may look like an FWB 150 or 300, but the 110 was the one that started them all.
The 110 is unique because it doesn’t have the anti-recoil mechanism in the stock. It recoils, though this one doesn’t move very much. It was tuned and resealed by Dave Slade and is a masterpiece of a recoiling 10-meter target rifle. Think of a tuned HW55CM or a Walther LGV and you will have it. How do I know? I shot it! Yes, you will be getting a 3-part review!
