Let’s take our first look at a rifle many airgunners have eagerly awaited — the Feinwerkbau Sport air rifle. I remember back in the 1990s when the FWB 124 was coming to the end of its production run. It seemed like dealers couldn’t give them away. But after they’d been off the market for just 5 years, many shooters were whining that they just missed buying the best airgun ever made.
