Post subject:  RT rifles all around the world

Hi there!

As here is a small community of RT I think it is very appropriate to post here some pictures of RT10 and RT50 (and why not RT100) rifle pictures. Pictures with user comments regarding the rifle itself are most welcomed.

For a start I will start with the pictures I have gathered.

Afterwards I will put up my own rifle pictures and will give some comments (+ and- issues) also.

My Feinwerkbau P70 in 2013 February. I switched to Walther LG400 after the 2014 World Championships. But that P70 still has my 60 shots record 294 + 289 = 583 on it! Love it, but had to sell it :P

I use the same optics today (Nickel 4x) and a P70 stock is on my 50m Anschutz.

Yes, I own a Feinwerkbau 601 RT. They are characterized as "extremely rare" and often the rifle/scope combination and fine tuning of the stock are custom made to the original owner. Mine has a Leupold M8 scope fitted with a Premier booster with a custom reticule in both: the Leupold has one single vertical line with a dot in the center; this is zeroed in with Leupold's own adjustments. The Premier unit has vertical lines with dots as well, these can be adjusted up/down and left/right from four towers in the Premier unit, which also boosts the magnification from 4X to 8X

The shooter preferences are a significant factor: in this case the scope is intalled very high even though the shortet loading hatch of the RT version would allow for much lower installation. Also, the Premier unit is installed significantly tilted to the right, but the stock is setup so that when you lift the rifle into shooting position, it sets equally tilted to the left, thus the reticule is perfectly straight when shooting.

These kinds of peculiarities make these (and other rifles that have actually been used in serious competitions) so fascinating. :) I knew literally nothing about this rifle when I bought it, other than that it's an FWB. Now I know all that and also a great deal about Leupold/Premier relationhip, which is quite interesting in itself.

Why are most RT rifles wooden? Why don't you usually see alu ones?

Hi

RT rifles are not a very fast developing breed as there are very few shooters out there (because of the non-olympic discipline unfortunately). As disciplines for pneumatic rifles started to gain more interest by the sport shooting community then the first aluminium stocks were produced for those rifles. Aluminium stock was introduced first by Anschütz - 2002 D-RT ALU (very rare item, not in production). Then the answer from Steyr was Steyr LG 110 RUNNING TARGET. After that also Walther officially joined the competition with his Walther LG400 RT (before that there were also versions of LG 300 "RT ALU" but according to Walther factory data they were not producing them officially). Please feel free to see also the pictures below. Steyr and Walther aluminium stock rifles are still in production.

But from the historical perspective - running target has its sources deeply in hunting game. As we all know - all hunting rifle stocks are from wood. Therefore the traditions are sticking also in running target rifles.

I hope this answers your question.

Regards,

RTarget
