FB RECORD (BARTHELMS, FRITZ)
Previous manufacturer located in Heidenheim-Oggenhausen, Germany. Founded by Fritz Barthelms in 1948, then owned by his son, Martin Barthelms. Production of airguns began in the late 1960s. The specialty of the company was producing economical air pistols using alloy and plastic casting methods that had minimal labor involvement. Annual production in the mid-1980s was about 40,000 air pistols, produced by only twenty workers.
In the 1980s, the Record brand began to include more substantial and interesting air pistols. The little, strangely named Jumbo features one of the most interesting mechanisms in the airgun field, a very compact concentric piston design. The extremely unexpected oval profile of the piston forces perfect piston alignment.
