Re: feinwerkbau 100

I seem to remember I had an issue with a seized bolt or something when I stripped mine. I just left the pistol on a radiator for a few hours to warm up and the expansion of the aluminium unseized the bolt. Glad I didn’t try to force it. Other than that very straight forward. Let us know how you get ...

Re: feinwerkbau 100

Hi i;m having problems with my newly bought FWB100 (from egun.de). When i got it everything was OK. After 100 pellets (and some dry-firing) it started to not eject all the compressed air on trigger pull (when opening the pump lever air would escape, or if i cocked the gun manually, a second burst o...

Re: feinwerkbau 100

That’s awesome, I know they always go for top dolla so one in good condition is definitely a keeper.
Post some pics if possible, it would be nice to see the old frauline

Re: feinwerkbau 100

I believe the grip on the 777 is oversized and you are supposed to cut and sand them back to fit your hand perfectly. Can’t bring myself to cut mine down though! I doubt daisy would have imagined they’d become collectible in the future,they were just an economic target pistol. I’m in west London btw...

Re: feinwerkbau 100

Finally picked up a 777 and 747.
747 is spot on, 777 is a bit erratic so will work through possible causes.

Great pistols though, triggers are lovely.

Re: Diana Model 6 Cutaway

After a bit of research and emailing I just got this email from Diana Air guns in Germany: 'we hereby confirm that the cutaway DIANA Model 6 air pistol number 032233 was made by DIANA for display in the DIANA Headquarters showroom in Rastatt.' :) After the factory in Rastatt closed down in 2015 all ...

Diana Model 6 Cutaway

Hi there, I thought you guys might be interested in a cutaway Model 6 I recently bought online from Germany. It was a bit of a gamble as the picture on the auction site was a bit blurry and the description was pretty vague but I’m really happy with it. You can cock and fire it and the GISS system is...

Re: Record Champion

Hi Matt, did you ever find the diagram please? I'm about to get my hands on one of these beasties that sounds to be in much the same state as what was yours and before I turn my back on it I'd like to know a bit more. If you did find one, please would you let me know where I could find one? I've ye...

Re: Strange Webley Senior

Brazing of a block on to the frame by a competent Gunsmith is not uncommon, because the web between the barrel slot and the slot for the cocking linkage to run in has fractured due to very heavy use or the frame being overload by a heavy spring or excessive preload on the spring. The MK11 target pi...

Strange Webley Senior

Hi, I've recently picked up quite an odd webley Senior: It has a 1955-1963 body (with no paint in the lettering) but has an older barrel with the longer knurled section, and an even older linkage system with a 2 piece slider that you normally see on pre-war barrels with no knurling. The block at the...

feinwerkbau 100

Hi, I've been after a high powered SSP for a while now (big fan of the Daisy 717) and finally managed to get my hands on a lightly used 1988 FWB100 from Germany. I stripped it and gave it a good clean and fitted new seals and it's as good as new. Tried it out today......what an awesome pistol: https...
