The model which started it all. Also known as Webley FX2000 and RWS Exalibre. FX Tarantula and FX Timber Wolf seem to be similar rifles, as is the FX Rapier.

The FX2000 is based on the Axsor which Fredrik Axelsson designed and built when he was working with CNC-Process AB. Beauty is in the eye of the beholder, but the FX2000 is said to be the most beautiful airrifle to come out of the FX factories. The FX2000 is available with a Walnut and Synthetic stock, shrouded or unshrouded barrel. And it's a multishot rifle, it holds a magazine for 8 caliber .177 or .22 pellets. Sadly, the FX2000 is out of production. There were rumours about an "Mk2" version coming out in 2007, but there hasn't been anything heard or seen which looks like it. Sadly.

The FX2000 is mostly found in its Webley form, the Webley FX2000. Also known as Gehmann FX2000, FX Tarantula and RWS Excalibre. There's a 2 shot variant known as FX Timberwolf and RWS Rapier.

I have had (in loan) a FX 2000 and it was a fantastic weapon.

It was a bit modifided model (shrouded barrel).
Unfortunately not with an ambi stock (not available voor the FX 2000?) but it was never the less, also one of my favorites.

Shrouding Barrels is largely a cosmetic exercise!
The standard FX style shrouding is just a larger tube around the barrel which is supposed to act like a sound moderator (although few do much). They are more popular in the US where moderators/silencers are mostly restricted. They can have all kinds of venting & baffles inside.

if i was based in the uk what would be the best method of acquiring a barrel shroud for the fx2000?
- i cant say ive ever seen one in the uk and they do indeed make the fx look extra beautiful.

looking forward to your reply

I have four FX2000's, in both Full and Carbine lengths, all .22 calibre.

Having owned many different models of FX airguns, the 2000 remains my favourite, and I am at a loss as to why FX decided to drop it from their range.
