    I have been looking that the Aim Drag Bag for my Air Arms FTP-900. I wonder if someone could give me advice on which one to get? I was looking at the Aim 45 Drag Bag, would this be suitable for the AA FTP-900 or should I look at the Aim 50 Drag Bag. I don't want to commit to the bag until I find out what is best suited to the AA FTP-900:)

    Many Thanks

    Bag

    Go for the FT100 if you have a large scope on the FTP

    Hi


    Measure the rifle for length and that will give you a indication which bag to go for you can carry alot of kit in the side pockets. Also what do you use the ftp for FT shooting or HFT shooting or plinking. If you are shooting it with a FT scope and butt hook etc go for the FT bag. Also if you belong to a club see what they are using for their FTPs mainly aim bags but some are using the ridgeline bag as well. :):):):):)

    I have a practical tactical FT Bag that I bought when I had my MPR in a warren Edwards Stock and it was a perfect fit. However, I've since sold the MPR and now have an EV2 and the bag dwarfs it. I'm guessing the AIM 50 would be a better choice?

    I've got an Aim 40 Bag for my FTP but I have removed the stripper and shrouds etc and it fits fine. I've now got a second FTP (same set up) will be going for an Aim 45, you can't beat an Aim Bag.

    I have a buffalo 50 inch padded bag, my ftp fits into that perfectly and is well protected.

    Best thing is it was only £40 new from SCR. That bag is probably available from someone nearer to you.

    The Aim bag is streaks ahead of the others and for me it's the only bag to use. The Solware is ok, but it has exposed foam and that soaks up the water when it's raining.

    The Aim 40 is 1" to short for a FTP that has the original stripper, but the Aim45 is perfect.

    Just be aware that if you are a tackle tart like me and spend hours polishing and cleaning your equipment that an Aim Bag is very hard on it, the inside material acts like wet and dry and removes scope finishes with ease my Sightrons look polished. Mind you that is after thousands of insertions.

    Still wouldnt use any other bag its build is superb.

    Had my AIM drag bag a couple of years now, no other bag comes close, the amount of kit you can stash in it is staggering , and the abuse it can take makes it No1 for many shooter k for a few quid you can get a handy rain cover .
    I covered mine in nikewax spray now and again, that keeps light rain out.
    Well worth the money.

    I have the FT100 for my FTP. Fits nicely, plenty of space comfortable to carry either by the handle or using the shoulder straps and well made. We'll worth the cash. Was delivered in two days as well.
