This photo shows a cutaway of the Feinwerkbau (FWB) Model P44 receiver. The FWB P44 is a high-end precharged pneumatic Match air pistol. It retails for about $1,800. High end match air pistols are sophisticated. Too much or too little air out of the valve could mean missing an Olympic Gold Medal.

Thanks to Miroslav for the photo.

    Technology stuff – this what I appreciate the most. Be it powder or air driven. Air is actually so much more interesting. Thanks.

    Modern match air pistols/air rifles are the most precise firing guns in the world. At ten meters, with the right pellets and clamped on a vice, these guns can consistently produce a five shot group measuring 0.04″ c-t-c!. Besides the unbelievable accuracy, they have superb build quality and the trigger action easily surpasses many custom made guns.

      We use a Feinwerkbau in my college marksmanship class. The accuracy has to be seen to be believed- the right guy can put every single pellet in the same hole.

        I have three FWB air pistols (mod. 80, P34 and 103) and their accuracy amazes me every time if I do my part, when I don’t make a five shot single hole group, I know its my fault.

    And I thought the Beretta 92 had a lot of parts.
