    Default Feinwerkbau Model-110

    Hi All,

    I bought my first air rifle last week at a Pawn Shop. I started researching the rifle on the internet(as one do), and found out the following on my FWB 110:

    1) Less than 200 made between 1962 and 1964,
    2) Predecessor for the recoilless FWB 150, but with recoil,
    3) Originally beechwood stocks, and that is about it.

    Can someone please assist with additional information and/or give me an estimated value?
    My rifle seem to be fitted with a left-hand stock of a FWB 150, and the stock has a little plate on it, that reads: " SA Games 1969, Bloemfontein".

    I have spoken with MZE with regards to seal replacement, so that is my logical next step. Get it shooting properly.

    Thank you and regards,
    Njaps

    Hello,

    Congratulations on this lovely find, it appears to be in fine condition.

    PLEASE, PLEASE, do NOT put a scope on it, but try very hard to find an original rear dioptre sight for it.

    Cheers.

    Excellent intro post Rhys. There is some dispute about the manufacturing date range, I have seen FWB documentation claiming that some 110s were produced as late as 1975. Not that it matters, you own what looks to be a well looked after bit of history. Never sell it.

    As Juniper indicated, try to source a period correct Obendorff dioptre sight, if you have no luck locally Waffencenter in Germany could probably find one for you: http://www.waffencenter-gotha.de/sho...12_614_88.html and if not there keep an eye on Egun: http://www.egun.de/market/index.php

    Thank you all. I have made contact with FWB regarding the date of manufacture. My rifle was made between 1960 and 1964. She mentioned that no other information was available.
    I will try to source the Oberndorff dioptre, but that itself is a challenge. There was one on EGun the other day. How do I go about getting a purchase from the site to SA?

    Riovasil on ebay has excellent ratings, ships worldwide and often has some of the harder to get vintage bits for FWB.

    Hello there,

    Some encouraging words from me .

    Keep looking really hard for that rear sight.

    This fantastic rifle is worth every cent that you spend on it in my opinion.

    Best wishes and luck with your search.

    Cheers.

    Wow! You lucky son of a...dude ;-)
    But if you're willing to trawl the pawn shops then your deserved luck to find such a beaut.
    Good luck with Hunt #2 for that diopter sight. Once you have it you'll be set.

    Nice going man. Enjoy!

    Hello,

    Congratulations, this is how that rifle should look.

    You were lucky to find this sight. I am having absolutely no luck in tracking down sights and screws for my Haenel Mod.VII, but I will keep looking.

    I however fear that I will have to find someone who can make them from pictures.

    Cheers.

    Thank you guys. I bought the diopter on EGun, and got it couriered to Switzerland. A friend brought it back for me.
    I see there is Haenel sights for sale on EGun. If you keep an eye on the auctions Juniper, you might be lucky.
    i still have the original seals in my FWB. I would enjoy a vintage shoot, once the seals have been replaced.
