My endorsement is simply this: If you can find one,
buy it! The FWB 300s/Running Boar is the finest
sidelever, semi-recoiless, spring piston target rifle
ever made. Now, that is quite an endorsement. The
300s I have has a beautiful figured stock. The trigger
is superb Feinwerkbau. The fit and finish is visually
very satisfying. While you’re at it, pick up
a model 65 pistol. It uses the same technology. You won’t
The 300s was only unseated in Olympic competition when
Walther unleashed their single-stroke pneumatic LGR,
a technological step in magnitude. Let me qualify that
statement. That statement applies only for Olympic quality shooters talented enough to even NOTICE the difference!
Own a piece of history and feel confident the FWB 300s rifle, even at its growing age, is easily more accurate than a fairly large number of other spring piston rifles presently being sold on the world market. My only
regret is that I personally am not the fine shooting specimen that this magnificent Feinwerkbau begs me to be!
Now that I have finished bloviating, I must point out
that this is not a sporter or a hunter. It is a 10 metre
rifle. It is exceptional at punching holes in paper or,
in my case, knocking the derriere off yellow jackets within 10m!
