    Bought the FTP 900 in May 2018 and whilst at the ranges last Sunday noticed blemishes on the air cylinder and cocking cantilever. I have contacted AA last night and I am presently awaiting a response.

    Yes lets hope so, main concern is that it is on a pressurized 200 bar cylinder, could cause injury owing to corrosion? The cantilever on the cocking lever is purely cosmetic, however corrosion at this early stage shows poor material or craftsmanship.
    It will get resolved, such a shame on a high end air rifle.

    The dinks on the air cylinder look like something has been rattling around with it, you didn't have a spanner or anything in the bag as well?

    No, I look after my kit, nothing but the rifle is placed in the bag. If you look closely they are not "Dinks" they are actually corrosion. I have spoken with Matt from Air Arms today and the faults will be rectified by Air Arms. The rifle is going back to the supplier for onward Despatch to Air Arms. :)

    Good to hear, Air Arms are top outfit in my experience and it's good to see Claire out in the field talking to shooters and seeing her products winning the bacon. She is the only one of the manufacturers that does this.
