    I did not know that the FWB 300 would no longer be allowed in the Field Target competitions (piston / springer) but even so it is considered in that category unless the new rules of the WFTF restrict that model of rifles for the Recoil System.

    A question to how many Joules is that FWB ... 16 J or 7 J ??

    saludos from Mexico.

    No, it's allowed in BFTA and WFTF.

    It is the called the Piston class in BFTA. Doesn't matter if it's recoiless.

    HFT might be a different matter.

    In FT its a 'piston class' and is allowed as far as i know.
    In HFT its a 'recoilling class' and is not allowed. Would have to be in the open class
