    Falcon FN 12 light hunter spare .177 barrel

    Got a falcon FN12 light hunter in .22 but would like to be able to change the calibre to .177, are .177 barrels hard to find and at what cost, i assume i need a new bolt to fit or would this be barrel bolt as one unit.

    You maybe right but i do like this Falcon in .22 very accurate one hole groups but thought would be nice to try .177.

    The barrels were bonded into the breech so to make this an easy swap you would want the barrel, breech and bolt etc. (Working on the assumption that you want to be able to swap from one to other as the mood takes you.)

    IIRC Air Arms bought out Falcon when they went bust.

    I would give them a ring to see if they could help.

    I think your only chance is to look for a second hand FN12 standard

    Brocock Contour Elite?

    I have a Falcon FN12 Lighthunter in .22 and I think it's a great little rifle too. Personally, I think it's too good to mess with and I am a believer in if it ain't broke don't fix it, but I understand your hankering for a .177 as well.

    In the end I bought a Brocock Contour Elite S6 in .177 as the nearest equivalent and I have to say that it is a close match for the FN12. Not quite the same solid feel as the FN12 but worth consideration.
