    which is it, a 124 or 127?

    you make references to finding a 127

    Beemans article refers to the FWB 124

    the pictures are labeled as 124’s

    last sentence is even more confusing. 

    Show us your new to you FWB127!!!

    Seems like the .22 cal models fetch more money from what I've seen.

    This has been kicked around a few times back in the yellow forum days regarding the 124 Jnc the 127 never came up as I remember.  As to date 127 Jnc I know of two possibly three and now yours, certainly appears to be quite rare. On the other hand 124's not as rare as once thought, seems to exist between (+/-) 16K to 19K numbered serial numbers, once again if memory serves me right.

    Enjoy that that 127 as you do have a rare bird!

    Cheers

    Hi Houli, how many pics of the mis-stamped 127 have you seen or actually held. Just installed a Maccari stainless steel trigger    San Rafael serial number  13960

    DMM what is the serial number? Mine certainly does not fall in the range that Houli mentions

    Did you know before the bid ended or just get lucky? Did the serial # clue you in?

    The 124 Standard Walnut San Anselmo must be a special order.  They only made Factory Walnut in 1983….way after San Anselmo.

    Or it is possible, a previous owner could have changed stocks,….but I am leaning toward a special order..  Without some provenance it is all speculation.

    A lot of the 127's went to UK. They always preferred .22 for hunting. European adult airguns weren't very popular here in the early 80's and before. Very small market. Nobody wanted to spend the price of a higher end .22RF on a "BB" gun. The .22 RF was king. Here in US. Airgun Importers here were pushing .177's. Later Dr. Robert hailed the .20's. The biggest market by far was in Europe back then.

    My buddy Mike bought the 127 with the peep on the right.  It's a Santa Rosa.  Only one I've ever seen.

    Left is a 127 I got from KP.  Supposedly it is Bastoigne Walnut. (Looks like it next to the Beech)  It's non Beeman so walnut is possible.  Robert Law carried them.  I think it might be an old ARH 127.  

    Anyway, we had a blast shooting them on my range.  Both performed very well.  The peep makes a big difference.  

    I enjoyed your post.  Love that walnut standard!
