I have this R7 that is odd. It is a W.German marked San Rafael Ca 94903. Ser# 1078169 Also have same model (Markings) ser# 951219. Different finishes. The second gun has the standard Polished bluing and nice beech stock. The one in question has a fence post for a stock, nasty red stain (looks to have been applied with a paint brush in the barn). The metal finish is a flat black that looks spray on. #2 gun(The nice one) has the standard rear sight that adjust with the wheel. #1 gun has same rear sight but adjust with a Phillip head screw. Both have the same dovetailed front. The stamping on #2 is crisp and sharp and like other HW's I have. #1 stamping is heavier and thicker. Both have the same Beeman brown recoil pad and black spacer. All other mounting hardware is the same as is the checkering. The  metal finish reminds me of the 1986  HW 35 Safari. Anyone seen one of these before? Picture is of #1

Also was packing up a FWB124 to go to Dave Slade for some magic and broke the trigger blade. Any know of a good replacement?

well here is a trigger but you won't like the price, it is a bit absurd but it would be the last trigger you would need for the 124

and I don't see one at Air Rifle Headquarters

my guess is the odd HW is a example of a gun owner that tried his own refinishing and replacement of parts and it wouldn't be the first time

 Thanks for the trigger lead. The R7  is in factory configuration, sadly.

You may even check on Ebay for OEM Feinwerkbau parts. I have purchased fwb 124 triggers from there before.

here you go for the trigger and Knibbs are fine to deal with

http://www.airgunspares.com/store/product/7091/FWB-Sport-Trigger-Alloy/

they are about 7-10 days to the states but still not cheap at a short 59 bucks plus shipping

so the stock is beech and for most a pain to refinish so a brush could have been used and I have seen people paint over blue steel

so redo it or leave it, is your choices but  what is under neither could be worse

 Thanks on the trigger. I have seen the metal finish before on HW's. After pulling the stock, I must agree that it has been re-stained. The metal looks factory and there is the tail tell evidence of a LUBE/TUNE. Leaning toward lube.
