Does anyone know if FWB 2800 (or the next version after 2700) is coming any time soon? As far as I know they introduced 24mm versions just recently, so perhaps next version is not coming so soon? I am considering buying own small bore rifle (now I am using a borrowed one), but I can wait for a year or so, if a new version is coming.

Not sure if a new model is on the way but early in the new year can be a popular time to announce a new product. I did notice on the FWB web site that some of the small bore rifle pictures show a rounded black bolt handle and others the standard metallic cylindrical shape. Perhaps it's a sign of things to come or just a variation of what they offer, not sure.

The rounded black bolt handle is not a new development; those are probably old photos from when the 2700 was launched about 10 years ago. The silver cylindrical handle replaced the black ball within the last five years.

As far as I'm aware FWB have always made the 2700 (and the 2602 before it) with a 24mm diameter barrel.

Feinwerkbau also makes a 2700 'Leicht' which has a 22mm fluted barrel which I believe they are referring to.

I asked FWB, they said a new small bore rifle is not in process of planning at the moment.

Looks like there is a new FWB smallbore in the works for 2018:

Sweet! Since new small bore target rifle models only come around once a decade (maybe) it will be nice to see what this new boom stick will looks like.
