FWB 127 is My Favorite Springer of all Time, Quality, Smooth, Accurate, Plenty Power in FAC, Much Lighter than HW 80. 127 Much Loved in the Springer Crowd. Yank's like the HW80 FAC better only for the Big Power. Have Both Guns in .22 FAC and the HW80 stays Home, My FWB 127 Killed way more Gray's,Coon's,Rabbit's,Fox's,Crow's and anything Dumb enough to be Seen by My Iron(Plastic) Site's in the Woods, (HW80 Has Better Real IRON Sites,and Power) Sorry for late Post But I'd had My Say.....Franky

And you're quite welcome to it Franky. ;)

I've regretfully never owned a 127, despite having owned all the other 'renowned' springers of the same era. I can recall lusting over the FWB in the home shopping catalogues as a kid....and I was, and remain, to be in awe at the genius simplicity of the cocking link hinge doubling up as the front sling swivel. I'm absolutely staggered that no other manufacturer has copied that absolutely brilliant design so far!!! :o

Hello

I am just about to take delivery of an FWB 127. Do any of the wise heads on here know anything about them, their history? I know the 124 is the .177 model and I think there is a Deluxe variant, but that's about it.

Particularly interested in understanding the differences between mk 1 and 2 guns, and also the difference with the Deluxe. Also, dates for the mk 1 and 2. Plus anything else anyone can throw in. For example, did it have any standout technical features for the time? And what about weaknesses/faults/quirks?

My friend's brother had one when we were kids. My mate and I both had HW80s. The FWB always seemed more refined and as a result we perceived it, probably wrongly, as not being as powerful.

Thanks for any insight!

The 2 main difference on the mark 2 was a metal trigger and the stock had different checkering
Opinion was the my 1 deluxe stock was better quality ...I think the mk2 was approx 1981..Richy

My Early FWB 127 had a Plastic Trigger since replaced by Beeman Airrifles for Free Year's ago now. Auto Safty since Filed 1/4" of Safty Leaver to disable Auto Set. I Think the rest is the Same, standard Stock w/round Pistole grip w/no Checkering or Deluxe w/Cheek piece & Checkering on Pistole grip and Forestock....Franky
