I presently own several PCP’s and a FWB C62. All are very
nice pieces. I am, however, realigning my thinking on
airgunning. The idea of having a large amount of periperals
simply to shoot has been grating on me for some time.
When I heard that FWB was discontinuing the 603, I decided
to put my money where my mouth is and purchased one of
these fabulous single stroke pneumatics. I understand
why these rifles fell out of favor in 10m matches. It
simply takes more effort to cock and load when compared
to a PCP. The extra physical effort causes the shooter
to fatigue quicker thereby affecting the shooting stance. For me, I have had to face the harsh reality that
I will never be more than a “simply average” shooter.
Never-the-less, the 603 is a fantastically engineered piece
that will deliver eye watering accuracy if you have the
ability to use it! It is simple to cock. The trigger
mechanism is superb and the fit and finish a true work
of art. So my friends, if you are tired of that scuba
tank tether, you need one of these masterpieces!
