    FWB 300 Classic Parts Diagram

    Is there a parts diagram for the FWB 300 Classic ? I already have the download for the FWB 300S series but the earlier model is different and I can't find a diagram for it.

    The cocking lever and trigger assembly are a couple things that are different and I'm told the early 300 uses a single spring as opposed to a double. There's also a pin (somewhere) on the 300 and it's replaced with a screw on the "S" models.

    So, if anyone has a link to a parts diagram for the OLD 300 model I would really appreciate your help. Thanks a bunch.

    You might find the fwb150 manual to be of some use as that has the different cocking lever & single spring? Think that is available on the Fwb site, may help, may not, worth a go,
    John.

    I have the factory parts lists from 1978 (ie. after the model 300 was replaced with the 300S) and the exploded view shows the internal parts as the same for both models up to serial no. 199,999. So the cocking lever and stock were the main differences, it seems, between the early 300s (apart from different barrels, trigger blades etc).

    Hello to All,

    The manual on the FWB site for the '300' is for the 'S' series, not the original 300.

    There is a exploded diagram for the 150, which is quite useful.

    From what I have seem when stripping my 300, it goes pretty much as for the 300S.

    Have fun & a good weekend

    Best regards

    Russ

    Russ, Does your 300 have one spring or two, like the "S" series ?

    fsa46,

    My 300 has one (1) spring.

    For the future, I bought a replacement Maccari spring (31 coils x .105 wire) : http://www.airrifleheadquarters.com/...88/6759574.htm

    FYI my 300 makes about 658 fps with JSB Match Green (7.32 gr.), for a hair over 7 ft.lb.

    By comparison, my 300SU makes 640 fps with RWS R10 Pistol (6.99 gr.) for 6.3 ft.lb.

    This is quite a nice video discussing the single spring use in the 300S series : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LRV42p9GjXk

    Have fun & a good weekend

    Best regards

    Thanks so much for this information, it's exactly what I as looking for.

    I have seen all of Joe's videos. His FWB 300S disassembly/assembly videos are the easiest to follow by far ( at least for me ) and spot on. I have spoke with him on many occasions.
