    Fwb sport 124 mk 1-2 or 3

    Hi everyone.I have just sold the above on behalf of a friend but it's got me wondering what mark it is,the serial is 18831 and there are no dovetails for the front sight just a slot on the top of the barrel roughly 4mm wide and running paralell with the end of the barrel about 10mm from the end.I have heard about a fwb sport with a wrap around front sight and of course the mk3 with the muzzle weight and sight built in.Is it possible to tell from the serial number which mark it is...Thanks...Lewis...

    It is the Mark 1 barrel that has the wrap around front sight.

    i have a 127 which i believe is a mk1 has two slots on the end of the barrel,the front sight slides onto these and is tightened by a screw.the trigger on this model is plastic.in the case of the mk2 the trigger is meta li think.from memory i think the front sight on the mk2 has inter-changeable elements which the mk1 lacks.there are more enlightened fwb enthusiasts on here than me and they will probably fill in any gaps.or correct my comments. atb.

    From memory, all sub-30,000 serial FWB Sports were Mk1s. I think there was a thread a few years ago that went into this question, if anyone can dig it up?

    What I should have said earlier was that 'some' of the early Mark 1's were fitted with wrap around front sights, not all. It is thought that these wrap arounds were left over from the Model 150. All Mark 1's were fitted with plastic triggers initially, but due to breakage a lot of these were replaced with metal triggers.
    As Danny 'Garvin' states, an in depth thread about the above can be found in the archives.

    There was a set of FWB sights on here very recently not sure what sort nor if sold but they were reasonably priced at 40 quid.

    erm..me! But with twenty seven FWB Sports to look after, you wouldn't begrudge me a few spares would you?
