age must be about 5 years old, bought it from new, 20-25K rounds. Lastest Eley batchtesting groups better than the previous ones, i havnt got the exact figures on me as im at uni but the 40group came to 14,0.

 

again i must add i am in a hurry to sell!

 

 

has been checked annually with FWB, and fully serviced in july in croatia

Can you give me a reason why you are selling this 2602. It's not because it doesn't shoot.

YES HE DID SAY HE WAS GETTING A NEW ANSCHUTZ

 

The more important question is why?

 

There are some fundamental differences between the two:-

 

The FWB is not an alloy cast like the Anschutz

The FWB has a much narrower forend than an Anschutz and that was one of the reasons why Mike Babb chose an FWB stock to house his Bleiker barrel & action.

 

Come on Richard what makes you think the Anschutz is going to serve you better?

Because it's cheap and comes from Mr Anschutz, doesn't mean it's going to shoot any better. I am interested when you get it how it performs in the Eley test range.

Emma - I don't think the intention was to hassle Richard just to find out why he is disposing of a rifle stock that has helped get him where he is today.

 

I think if it were me and I don't know Richard's circumstances I would want to keep the old one until I was satisfied that the new one could give me equally good results and I was comfortable with it but finances and student impoverishment might not allow that.

 

If he doesn't get on with the new one then it will be very expensive to get back to where he is now.

 

Now I'll shut up and wish him well in selling his FWB - I should add that I shoot with an Anschutz stock albeit a laminated one and if I changed the FWB would probably be top of my list of possible replacements.

I agree, but what do I know?

One could be cynical and reflect that this is a cheap way for Mr Anschutz to "take-out" a competitor manufacturers well performing product so there is one less FWB performing at a high level amongst GB shooters. No doubt it is all being done for very laudable reasons but I wonder how much they are playing on the fact that a nice shiny new article has loads of appeal to a possibly impressionable young shooter.

 

I call to mind Mick Gault who was given a new Hammerli air pistol and despite trying and persevering with for some time, he reverted to his tried and tested Morini for the Commonwealth Games.

 

At this point I wonder if Mac, as GB team manager, might give an analysis of who is using what. Nothing too time consuming just numbers or percentages per manufacturer. I just have a feeling that alternatives to Anschutz are increasing in numbers when it comes to medal winning performances.
