Production periods Feinwerkbau air rifles cal. 4.5mm / .177

1962 - 1964 - Model 110

The first spring-operated side-action air rifle developed by Feinwerkbau with a fixed barrel and fixed sights.

1962 – 1969 - Model 150

Thanks to a patented recoil mechanism, the Model 150 was the first recoilless match air rifle with a fixed barrel. The model series was available with and without a barrel sleeve and could be ordered with a standard or Tyrolean stock.

1969 – 1998 - Model 300

The Model 300 was a further development of the Model 150 series and was designed to meet the requirements of sport shooters at the time. In addition to the patented recoil mechanism, a fixed barrel and a fixed sight line, the 300 model series had an improved match trigger and could be fitted with a standard, universal, match or junior stock or with a special stock for the "running target" discipline.

1973 – 1986 - Model Sport

The legendary "Sport" model was a spring-operated sporting rifle for recreational use with an adjustable pressure point trigger and automatic safety. The "Sport" model was available with a standard or luxury stock. The latter had a checkering on the pistol grip and a sling attachment.  
The "Sport" model was available with a muzzle energy of 7.5 joules, 14 joules or 18 joules.

1984 – 1987 - Model 600

The Model 600 was the first air rifle from Feinwerkbau to work with pre-compressed air. This revolutionary compression technology drastically reduced the shot development time and improved the quietness of the shot.

1987 – 1997 - Model 601

The model 601 was a modified version of the model 600 series and had a cocking lever safety device that prevented the cocking lever from springing back during the cocking process.

1987 – 1997 - Model C60

CO2-powered air rifles were developed in parallel to the models with pre-compressed compressed air.  

These models required significantly less cocking force - only the trigger mechanism was cocked via a cocking slide.
The C60 model series was available in the "Universal", "Junior" or "running target" versions.

1994 – 1997 - Model 602

With the 602 model series, the 600 series has been further improved - including a two-piece compression sleeve, new sights and a dry-firing system.

1995 – 2006 - Model C62

The further development of the CO2-powered C60 model series was equipped with a revised intermediate chamber for a more constant V0 and new sights.

1995 - 2004 - Model P70

The P70 model was the first air rifle from Feinwerkbau to be powered by compressed air. In contrast to CO2, compressed air was largely insensitive to temperature fluctuations, which further improved the firing characteristics. The P70 model also had the external absorber that was introduced with the 603 model series.

The P70 model was available with a stock made of laminated wood or a versatile adjustable aluminum stock in various colors and finishes.  

The range of variants increased and the following models were available in the P70 series: "Alu", "Universal", "Junior", "Running Target" and "Field Target" with 15 or 20.4 joules muzzle energy.

1996 – 2008 - Model 603

The revolutionary, patented absorber technology was presented for the first time with the 603 model series. In the 603 model, the absorber was still installed on the outside parallel to the barrel axis. The absorber eliminates the bullet impulse and thus ensures an even smoother shot.
The 603 model series was available with either a stock or an aluminum stock - at that time already in different colors.

2003 – 2015 - Model 700

The 700 model series comprised compressed air rifles with an internal absorber, acting centrally to the barrel axis.
With an improved pressure reducer principle as well as a new cocking mechanism and the new vario sight, the 700 model series was a further step in the evolution of Feinwerkbau's air rifles.

The 700 model series was available with either a wooden or aluminum stock and the range of variants was further expanded. It was possible to choose between the model variants "Alu", "Universal", "Junior", "Evolution", "Evolution Top", "Basic" and various models for the then new benchrest discipline.

Production periods Feinwerkbau air pistols cal. 4.5mm / .177

1965 – 1997 - Model 65

The Model 65 was a recoilless, spring-operated air pistol with a patented recoil mechanism. The pistol was side-loaded and the sight line was extremely low at only 8 mm above the barrel bore axis. Anatomical grip panels were available for the Model 65 in left and right versions. In order to be able to train for the "sport pistol" discipline, the trigger weight could be changed to 1,360 grams.

The Model 65 was also available as a short-barrel version.

Initially a fixed rear sight was fitted - later an adjustable rear sight and interchangeable front sight blades in various widths and heights were added to the product range.  

1977 – 1986 - Model 80

The model series 80 was the further development of the model series 65 with a slightly modified design and parallel trigger. Additional weights could be attached to the underside of the barrel.

1982 – 1997 - Model 90

The Model 90 series was a recoilless, spring-operated side-action air pistol with an electronic trigger.  

This achieved absolutely constant trigger characteristics.

With the Model 90, dry firing was possible without cocking the pistol.

For the first time, this air pistol model offered the possibility to adjust the trigger via first stage weight and pressure point weight.

In addition to a standard version, a short-barrel version was also available.

1982 – 1988 - Model LP 2

The LP 2 model made cocking easier thanks to a pressurized gas cylinder with stored CO2. Only the trigger mechanism was cocked via a cocking slide - the usual force for cocking the weapon was no longer required.

The LP 2 model had an integrated dry-firing trigger and was also available as a short-barrel version.

1988 – 1990 - Model C10

CO2 gun with a pressurized gas tank and, for the first time, an upstream intermediate chamber for precise dosing of the gas quantity from shot to shot.

1988 – 1997 - Model 100

The Model 100 series was the first pre-compressed air pistol with an under-cocking lever.
The system was based on the proven model 600 of the Feinwerkbau air rifles.
The Model 100 series had a finely adjustable match trigger and offered the option of switching to dry firing. The position of the weapon's center of gravity could be individually adjusted using an additional moveable weight. 

1990 – 1991 - Model C20

Version of the CO2 pistol with a shaped grip that could be swiveled by 10°. The front sight was also adjustable by 45 mm in length.

1990 – 1992 - Model C5

First 5-shot CO2 pistol with pivoting shaped grip.
A force-fed in-line magazine remained in the end position after the series of shots was completed - the trigger was then cocked and blocked.

With the aid of a magazine adapter, dry firing could be carried out without ammunition and with low gas consumption. This made the C5 model ideal for precision, duel or rapid-fire shooting.

1991 - 1997 - Model 102

In contrast to the model 100, the model series 102 had a double clamping lever. This means that the air is compressed in two steps, halving the cocking force compared to model 100.

1991 – 1998 - Model C25

Version of the CO2 pistol with vertically arranged CO2 container.

1993 – 1994 - Model C55

5-shot CO2 pistol with muzzle separator and vertical relief holes in the barrel to eliminate air turbulence when the pellet exits the barrel.
The C55 model had an extremely low and very long sight line.

The magazine feed was optimized for smoother firing.

The CO2 container on this model was arranged vertically and the grip could be swiveled by up to 10°.

1994 – 1998 - Model P30

Single-shot air pistol with separator, two-part, swivel and rotating grip and dry firing option .

1996 – 2008 - Model 103

Pre-compressed air pistol with removable cocking lever. The extra-long cocking lever shifted the center of gravity of the pistol significantly to the rear.

By removing the cocking lever after cocking, the overall weight of the pistol could be reduced by approx. 170 g.

The Model 103 was the first air pistol to be equipped with a separator at the muzzle, which minimized air turbulence when the bullet exited the barrel.

A one-piece and a two-piece grip were available for the Model 103.

1998 – 2004 - Model P34

Single-shot air pistol with barrel sleeve for attaching moveable weights. A separator and 3 barrel relief holes were fitted as standard on the P34 model.

For the first time, an absorber was integrated into the trigger housing, which helped to eliminate the projectile impulse in the exit of the shot.

The trigger unit could be completely replaced and the P34 model had a new, continuously adjustable rear sight.

The one-piece molded grip could be swiveled and rotated.

2000 – 2003 - Model C55P

In this model version, the C55 was modified with an upstream pressure reducer so that it could be powered by compressed air.

2004 – 2006 - Model P40

Single-shot air pistol with a one-piece, pivoting and rotating grip made of laminated wood.

The sight length of this model could be adjusted by means of a length-adjustable rear sight.

Together with the optimized absorber, the separator ensured an even smoother shooting experience.

Weight bars with moveable weights could be attached for individual balance.

2006 – 2008 - Model P56

5-shot compressed air pistol with then new precision sights and one-piece grip that could be tilted by up to 10°.

2006 – 2016 - Model P44

Single-shot air pistol, which - compared to the previous models - was significantly slimmed down and therefore considerably lighter with a total weight of only 950 grams.

The total weight could be individually adjusted by attaching moveable weights.

The one-piece walnut molded handle could be swiveled and rotated.

A cocking lever on the side allowed the pistol to be cocked comfortably and the new, interchangeable trigger system had a trigger blade that could be adjusted in three dimensions.

An optimized pressure reducer ensured consistent results - a length-adjustable and swivelling rear sight completed the P44 model series.

The P44 model was available as a standard version or - in the short-barrel version - shortened by 50 mm.

2008 – 2015 - Model P58

5-shot rapid-fire pistol without barrel sleeve with optimized separator and adjustable front sight. The trigger blade could be rotated and swiveled and was adjustable in height and length. The trigger weight was adjustable between 200 and 600 grams and the pistol's center of gravity could be adjusted by attaching weight bars.

Production periods Feinwerkbau small bore rifles cal. .22 l.r.

1979 – 1988 - Model 2000

Small bore single-shot rifle with a locking system with the shortest firing pin travel. A lightweight firing pin and a finely adjustable mechanical or electronic match trigger completed the Model 2000 series.

The Model 2000 was available with a barrel diameter of 22 mm or 24 mm and with the stock versions "UIT Standard", "Universal", "Super Match", "Running target" or "Junior".

1986 – 1994 - Model 2600

The 2600 model series was equipped with a longer system housing and the loading tray was moved further to the rear.  

The new match trigger was also new in this model series.

1994 – 2004 - Model 2602

A new rear sight and a front sight tunnel with a diameter of 22 mm, which was mounted on an aluminum front sight barrel.

The 2602 model series was available with a barrel diameter of 22 mm or 24 mm or as a short barrel version.

2004 – 2018 - Model 2700

Single-shot small bore rifle with a versatile adjustable super-match stock made of aluminum. The Model 2700 was available in different colour options and, in addition to a light version with a shortened and fluted barrel, various bench rest models were also available.

Initially, the Model 2700 was available with a barrel diameter of 22 mm or 24 mm. From 2015, the barrel diameter was standardized to 22 mm.
