    Feinwerkbau has listened & we had a good chat...steel sleeve cut down, mods. a la JH (well known at Fwb !) , scope riser, and hamster extender included in price on the 800FT Alutech (have asked they do the wood version)

    Basic (available w. Laminate stock): Euro1875 as per picture

    Fwb 800 FT: Euro2650 as per picture (no scope obviously) - alu parts are factory anodised to clients colour scheme for £ extra.

    Fwb SPORT MODEL Springer: No pricing as yet

    I know it's simple but I kind of like that walnut stocked FWB 800. Really want more info on the sporter. Thanks for posting these!

    I wonder if the 800FT has a full fat 12ft lb regulator or just a tweaked 6ft lb model?

    From what I can make out,it doesn't look as though it has a reg.extension on it so the volume hasn't been increased there.

    Centra UK are agents - but still cheaper to buy retail either from Germany, Holland or Spain, incl. Bank charges, lousy conversion rate & transport costs - direct to your doorstep. (Holland & Spain are now better way to get , due to problems with Germany carriers 'ban' on air rifle transport by Postal services; no problems with Spanish or Dutch Post).

    Barracuda pricing in UK. Agents take massive %, and then UK shop whacks on another %.

    "EWB" still in process for 16J in Germany (FAC type licensing Gov. authority) ; hence no official Fwb release date yet...

    Update: Estimated in +/- in 2 months time ; say Mid May 2014 (?)

    It's possible the new springer will be licensed for export before the 800ft.
    The springer is 20 joules .177 only at the moment but a 15 joule has been promised. Allegedly it's fitted with some expensive parts so cost has been estimated to me at £500 plus in the UK...........Ouch! I don't know if this figure will actually materialise, lets hope not.

    One thing to remember theres added costs in making these usable, don't say I didn't warn you. Absolute minimum £150 on top of rifle cost and still have no quick fill.

    The 800FT has now been passed for export & is on the way to the UK soon.

    been a long time waiting

    Been waiting on this coming out for a hell of a long time but cant wait to get one, are they coming in this shorter version or as per the depictions on Feinwerkbau's website itself?

    On their website it shows it in similar size to my p70?

    Whats required on top of this please Jon?
    P.sare you still making the barrel mounts for scopes to avoid zero shift, im looking for one for my p70, ive decided to have a go at FT and the p70 is what I fancy using.

    Cheers all.

    Rob as in op's pictures the shorter one, which is way too short around 16 1/2" from loading to muzzle. Extra 3" here gives a neutral balance and all round pointability.

    Rail wont cure the zero shift, serious scary machining needed at extra cost if you can find some one. Wood ones easier to put right.
    If they have retained the stabilisor it will need sorting as well or risk scrapping the action.
    No quick fill, unscrewing cylinder on four overly long M3 Cap head screws with associated stresses don't inspire confidence. Just the easy cheap way out.
    Cheek too low for that rail unless want as a chin rest.

    So basically its another ten meter rifle pumped out with an FT label..

    Another bonny looking thing but that still needs fettling.

    Stick with the P70 for now, figure out how to pimp her up a bit. Dusted it off and had a wee go in the club tonight. Should really shoot it more often.

    Getting into Ft hopefully so gonna use it for that. Can you recommend a scope rail to go on the barrel as opposed to the action.

    Best regards

    Rob

    This is exactly how I feel. Maybe I'd try one if the manufacturer gave to me for testing, but wouldn't buy it, simply there's no reason why to change from the P70.

    what does the p800 ft need to make it totally sorted and to shoot fantastic as its looks to cure all problems it may have not holding zero and bolts for action etc . also is their anyone willing to do these modifications seems such a great rifle to be side lined.
