    My 1984 FWB 300 S:

    – Stock stripped, grip painted black, finished with boiled linseed oil.
    – Steel barrel weight for clean look when not using target sights.

    A big thank you to Mr Rhea ( https://www.airgunnation.com/members/joewaynerhea/ ) for great videos about this fine rifle!

Thanks guys!

    “How does it shoot?”

    Original spring (I think), new piston ring/bumper/seal, quite stable at 192 m/s with JSB RS 0.475 g, sounds good, absolutely hits the target when I do my part.

    Am I the only one that thinks John Rhey has single-handily created a run on these guns on the used market?

    Konceptus in Poland: https://www.airgun-konceptus.com

    I got my 300 before I saw Rheas videos but his enthusiasm and attitude hasn’t taken the joy away to put it that way.

    How do you do the 
    “Boiled Linseed oil” treatment?

    Apply a thin coat, let dry for a day or two, sand lightly with fine grit, repeat until satisfied.

    Does it darken the lighter stocks?.

    Boiled linseed oil can be bought in shops selling paint. It will change the appearance of the wood, best thing is to try it out on some scrap wood to see what you think.

    Vestlenning, I tried to find a working internet address to this Konceptus company, but no luck. Strange since this  thread is pretty new. Either they’ve gone bankrupt or the Polish internet is down.
