    Feinwerkbau P70 Match Rifle

    I have reluctantly decided to sell my almost unused FWB P70 match rifle - mainly due to a lack of space at home since my retirement as I no longer have my gun room at work to store my collection of match rifles (and other curiosities)......and the fact that my wife (rather selfishly in my opinion) also wants to share the use of some of the rooms in the house to the extent that she demands that the doors can open freely and insists on actually being able to see the floor in some of the rooms too!

    My P70 rifle has had almost no real use from new and it still looks like a new rifle and shoots like a dream - and it looks especially resplendent in the red colour. This rifle would be an excellent buy for anyone that wants a seriously accurate match rifle to shoot as it shows no signs at all of any real life wear and tear.

    This rifle may well become quite collectable in the longer term as it must be one of the best condition and least used P70 rifles around.

    I still have the original foam box/packaging that it was delivered in (although I will be dumping this due to lack of space) but it will come with the original P70 handbook and test card.

    I take the rifle to RMTC every few weeks to put a few shots put through it to make sure everything is kept "moving" and not allowed to deteriorate, and every time this happens the rifle impresses with its performance and good looks - in short I am very reluctant to sell it - but "needs must" as they say.

    I bought a new FWB cylinder as the original ( although still working fine) went out of date, so this rifle is fit for use in any competition and will not fail scrutineering due to having an "out of date" cylinder.

    I am asking 950 for this rifle (with a hard case if required) and I doubt it would be possible to find a better example of a P70 anywhere that has been cared for and spoilt as much as this one has.

    A face to face sale would be best as the new owner could come and shoot it any Tuesday or Thursday evening at RMTC to see that the rifle shoots every bit as good as it looks and to make sure the rifle is as mint as the pictures suggest that it is.

    I realise that the original foam packaging has no real appeal to anyone (except a very keen collector perhaps) but it does enable the rifle to be transported with the same protection as it did when it was shipped from the factory as these rifles were never supplied with a hard carry case.

    With this is mind I would be happy to dump the polystyrene foam and supply the rifle in a hard case at no extra cost.

    This would be far more useful to the new owner and I admit that the huge lumps of polystyrene are now getting in my way (they take up more space than the rifle!!) and since the whole reason for selling some of my rifles is to make more room in the house I would prefer to dump them.

    Yes this rifle is still for sale - although every time I take it to the club and use it I become a little more reluctant to part with it as it is such a nice rifle that has had very little use from new.

    The sooner the rifle is sold the better in some ways because the longer it stays here with me the more I feel inclined to keep it as I doubt there can be a better example of a P70 anywhere (unless the factory have kept an unused example on display).

    If this is a genuine enquiry to buy it just let me know and I would be happy to send you some pictures of the rifle for you to see, and if you decide to seriously consider buying it you would be more than welcome to inspect it and shoot it at 10 meters before parting with any cash.

    I see you are located in a village on the shores of Loch Fyne ( about half way between Oban and Campbeltown) - a beautiful part of the country - but a long way for you to travel to see the rifle. I am guessing if you wanted the rifle to be posted then it would have to be delivered to an RFD in your area?
