    It aint mine Pete :eek: ...:D

    PS: I noticed that the black is not black enough on this gun (it seems washed out... :confused:) , so will use that block of laminate I bought a while back from www.varidecicognani.com to have Lukas make the parts for some minters I have found in shops in Europe & planning on buying in the New Year ...so yes, I'll be doing the same silver treatment in the future for the spare Fwb P70FT stocks...:D

    If you buy new triggers for each of your Feinwerkbaus, there is a significant discount over 100 pcs... :D

    now that looks real smart

    Question though - is it a match rifle as it has the compensator on the left hand side??

    No, that's an FT version just has an absorber, too.

    Jason,

    Can you tell me how much Cicognani charged for the block of laminate and the dimentions?

    Thanks

    Sandblasting, or bead blasting, or caustic soda.....reveals the raw alu finish...I suppose it could be polished down for an alu mirror finish, but don't think it would look as good as this...since it would look OTT bling bling...

    now I am confused - my match rifle has the compensator, but I have never seen an FT with the compensator as I thought the set up did not work above 7 or 8 ftlbs???

    I agree there are many ways of re-finishing alloy. There are few that are better than the quality of the factory finish and can only de value the gun.

    Quite simple Big_Phil555

    any P70FT with a 'side absorber' is NOT a OEM factory 15J Field Target rifle...ie: any 15J supposedly FT rifle with a side narrow cylinder absorber, is a modded 10m rifle....therefore NOT the original item.

    For example...I have a Fwb action and have bought and ordered all the 15J parts (including Flush Absorber & cocking closing plate like pic 1)....after the mod., the action with 15J hammer and spring, AND 15J chamber will make it capable of 15J...is it an OEM Factory Field Target action... ? No...But is it shooting at 15J ? Yes...with the thin narrow cylinder absorber on then side...or not, or rather with the flush absorber...makes no difference...its rather that you have the '15J PLATE" fitted, and underside tweaked chamber w. belville washers...for correct pressure adjustment.

    In the end, you can discard the fluted cylinder compensator fitted action on the side (or keep it- like this silver P70) , and replace it with the flat flush FT compensator plate, to make it look like a Kosher Pukka OEM FT Fwb P70FT , so who would be the wiser ? (long winded answer to say, yes, the 7.5J absorber seems to work/do the job on the power uprated 15J jobies..)

    Give away pm a convereted 10m Fwb P70 action to P70FT, would be the lack of, or long 7.5J serial number on the barrel holder. And the 'banana' downward curve at top, of rear of action...

    Anyhow, as long as ALL parts are OEM Fwb PARTS, whether factory fitted, or done after market, stilll makes it a Fwb...Its upto a 'purist' to decide....

    Look at the 4 pictures...and you will understand my point ;)

    No, Peter, that one is a genuine 15J FT version just added an absorber from a 10 m P70.

    Every P70 FT version can have an absorber too, just unscrew that small plate and mount the absorber instead. But there's no reason to use it, the only perceptible effect is that the velocity goes down with 2 m/s.
