Anyone have info on this model? Previously started a thread in the "Olympic Rifle" area with no responses so thought I'd try here. I recently came across one and my research leads me to believe they are quite hard to find. Comments welcome.

Hello,

The moderator of this page is very knowledgeable in this area so would be a good person to comment.

I have been looking for some equipment to start a youth oriented RT shooting group so can agree that supply is limited.

However, the number of buyers is also limited so it may work out in the end although may require a wait on both sides.

Please take my thoughts with the proverbial grain of salt as my experience is very limited.

Also, if you, or anyone else, comes across some RT equipment or ranges that are looking for a home please give them my contact info.

Good shooting,

Steven

What questions do you have about it? Are you planning on using it as intended, for running target?
These are pretty rare indeed....

One of the reasons I became interested is that it is designed specifically for use with a scope which I prefer. Further discovered the unique stock and barrel design. I use it to shoot from the bench as I have never even seen a R/T machine other than online so no idea where to do that. It is deadly accurate and a very interesting design. Questions like how many were made, and why there is little to no info available would be a good start. Value is always a consideration as well. Any other info of interest would be welcome.

Nick, ask FWB. They can tell you when your rifle was made, and probably know how many of these R/T rifles were manufactured.

I own a 601 RT, which is essentially the same as 603, the 603 just has a cancellation system for the very very slight recoil from the pellet being propelled down the barrel. 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.
