Written in 1997, by Brad Troyer... Seen & reread again last nite, and the penny dropped Thats why I love the Fwb P70Ft ! - "Its the 'lock time' you dimwit " I said to myself ! This explains in some part the love for the trigger action crisp release AND, why Its considered a thumb tacking machine ! http://www.airguns.net/reviews_fwb_p70ft.php ..."Shooting good groups with the P70 is due partly to it's excellent accuracy. Another big reason is the very low lock time. I started to really notice the lock time when I started plinking during my testing. I sat down and sighted in at 50 yards. When the trigger broke, I noted where the crosshairs were on the target. To my surprise, the pellets were landing at the last position I saw the crosshairs. One reason for the short locktime is due to the short stroke. This is the distance the striker must move to impact and knock open the valve. Most other precharge guns have about a 12 mm travel while the P70 has only a 3.7 mm travel. The shorter 16.6" barrel also contributes to the short lock time.".... Anybody have any stats on 'lock times' for todays - Steyrs, Walthers, AAs etc.. ? - as a comparison ?
