then get a rifle you know the fps of, shoot something thick and hard (no male genitalia jokes :roll: ) then shoot it with the old gun and compare the depths of penetration, then just make an educated guess

Your rifle is most likely in the 450 fps range. I've had several Marksmans that were similar. They shoot nice and smooth on account of the small spring and piston.

I bet if you googled you could find the "poorman" info for bbs and pellets.

Got a PC and mic? Just record the gun firing and the round hitting something. Not all that complicated. (search these forums)

Looks like it has the same action as the Beeman FH500 so I agree with Matheusilla, less than 500 fet per second.
