My first airgun was a FWB 65 to shoot in competition. I also have a Daisy 747 and an IZH 46. Learning to shoot this pistol was a challenge. I enjoy shooting this pistol. It cocks easy, seems to like most pellets and the trigger is phenomenal for a $65 gun. Once you learn how to hold it it will hit what you are aiming for every time. I have two IZH rifles, they are outstanding for the price. This is a fun airgun to shoot.

Made in Russia. Rough looking,but great balance in your hand. Easy to cock and load. Not very powerful, but makes a good plinker to 15 meters. I have about 1000 pellets through mine and it is still going strong. Don’t try to hold on too tight, it seems to be more accurate with a light grip. It is about $65.00 US and a good value

Hi All,

At first glance I found the pistol rugged and well built and I had high hopes for it, However it looked better than it shot.

Likes: price/comfortable in your hand/easy cocking

Dislikes: my biggest problem with this gun was it’s accuracy

It shoots way above point of aim no matter how much

Adjust the sites. There is no provision to mount a scope

Red dot. That’s the only real problem with the gun but I

Accuracy to be the single biggest requirement in a airgun

Another $50.00 pistol well worth the money. Accurate BUT VERY hold sensitive. If you hold her too firm when shooting you’ll end up 3″ high. Thought mine was shooting high too so i filed the rear bottom of the front site post and drilled and tapped for 4-40 height adjustment screw. Until I discovered it was me making it shoot high. Use a 1911A1 hold –> apply rearward pressure with only your middle finger and relax you last two fingers you’ll be surprised of the difference and the group you can get. Great indoor shooter or to start with springers….

In Italy i have paid 60euro (lower cost for airgun pistol).

It needed same mending: increasing of sight (the shoot was hight), counterweight 60g on the barrel top. After 1 year added optic 4×32 Leapers, drilling an hole on the top of the pistol to assure its stop on behalf a screw threaded on the optic frame and assembled in the hole. A short stock completed all. Shoulder support shooting 25 mt it’s easy to stay within 3″.

Super value, enjoyable shooting. Very easy to cock with sensitive trigger and minimum backlash. Accurate gun, though not of match caliber, easy to hold and sights easy to use.

Usual excellent Russian barrel makes for an accurate shooter.

Comfortable ergonomics, Pellet friendly.

Shoots strong but quiet, deceiving, as mine chronied at 464 fps with 5g Crosman silver Eagle hollow points. Aprox 400 fps with 7g lead yet more accurate.

Cost savings are evident by the plastic breach but more important it performs well.

My favorite spring pistol!

Great value for the price, as high quality as other spring-piston guns costing $100 more. Finish is a little rough, rear sights are a little delicate, can be moved out of position too easily. Excellent plinker and intro to target shooting gun.
