Feinwerkbau Sports 127 deluxe - series mk2 - collectable
« on: November 30, 2018, 12:35:42 PM »
Hi everyone, I cannot believe i found my old air rifle in my parents loft, and what a find. Pristine condition collectable. I just have to show you these pictures.

I've had put into a local gunsmith for a service right now but it's already generating some interest for it's rarity , Even in the USA.

i'll be putting it up for sale when i'm satisfied its in condition enough for sale. Fingers crossed eh.

Wow, what a lovely example......I don't think I've ever seen such a minty unmarked and original 127.

Lovely period scope too....they were about the best quality you could buy back then, and still put newer scopes to shame image quality wise.

When putting it for service may I suggest you ask for the leather piston seal to be replaced/upgraded to a synthetic item.....as the rifle will be both more consistent and reliable then.

Please keep us informed for progress Mr Vintage. ;)

Hi Gambo,

I was wondering if you would spot this given your past post about wanting to own one but never got the chance.

i'm still waiting to hear from the gunsmith but I'm also thinking of retrieving it and selling as is regardless as , I've been advised to. Thanks for the info on the synthetic seal. I've been out of touch with airguns in a long time and wouldn't have even known that could be done lol.

For the record is Ms Vintage lol.

;)

Yes Ms Vintage (sorry about that), you are correct, I've never owned a 127 but always lusted after one as kid.


Regarding the advice about retrieving and selling as is.........I would suggest it depends on who your potential buyer is.

A collector type buyer would probably prefer the rifle to be in an unmolested and original condition as possible.....as close to how it left the factory.

However, if the buyer is someone who intends to actually use the rifle rather than just look at it, then a freshly serviced (and upgraded) item may well be more attractive to them.

LOL, Thats ok, you weren't to know, thanks for the advice, that makes more sense to me now. given that information, i think i will retrieve the rifle as is and see if anyone wants it in that condition first.

I've had 2 offers so far , one is a collector up north and one in America, he's very interested. :)

Because of your mention in the first post, I'd (mistakenly) assumed you were in the U.S.
