As distributors for both Webley & Scott and FX Airguns, we have an obligation to keep the facts straight regarding both lines of products. After hearing several discussions regarding both of the eight shot rifles, we decided to show the true facts. While FX Airguns builds the FX2000 rifle for Webley & Scott, the rifles are built to an entirely different set of specifications than used for the FX Tarantula. The following is a feature comparison between the two. We show no bias, and wish to let the details below help you, the consumer, form your own opinions.
