     Just lately been wanting a soft shooting 12fp or less gun, thought about an HW 50 or HW 30, but this FWB 124 had been sitting on Northwest firearms for a year, fair priced too, that and I haven't warmed up to the new silkscreen lettering Weihrauch is doing on their guns now. Since I'm up in Oregon every week, I made an offer and took it home with me. Couple of small scratch's and dings but nothing too bad for gun this old, SL#8289 plastic trigger. ARH slightly softer kit and a breech seal, already on the way. I hope it's everything you guy's on this sight have said it is, not going to change a thing on it, just scope it and enjoy.

    Very nice. Congratulations on your FWB 124. I read an article on the 124 a few weeks ago or so I guess. They were quite the cutting edge rifle with high velocities for the time. It looks like a very nice one. It being a Feinwerkbau I'm sure it will be very accurate as well.

    Anything that says Feinwerkbau is going to shoot.  My FWB 300 S is still my most accurate airgun.

    Just feed it jsb 8.4. zero @ 35 yds and have fun. Nothing safe between 35/55 yds. Shoot my 124d abd 300s out to 50 yds with jsb 8.4 with great success. Very good choice. Congrats

    no pellet can be a sure thing until tested, mine does best with Crosman Premiers…

    My first adult air rifle was a 1979 FWB 124D from the old ARH in West Virginia. I finally had to rebuild the piston seal in 2016 , and it shoots and looks new. I did replace the old scope with a Hawke Vantage 4-16 X44 AO. Much better rifle then either HW , not that Weihrauch doesn't make great guns , because they do.
