    I will be honest it looks great but looks aren't everything. I got stung with the Ftp900 when it first came out. My FT steyr challenge fits and shoots superb but always interested in New toys and how they perform.

    I have an EV2 and an FTP and to be honest both shoot like a charm, the FTP a little heavy for me but the EV2 I just can’t fault at all

    I hope so. I put a comment in their suggestions box requesting such a thing at the worlds last year.

    My hft500 was in a similar coloured stock, it's a great colour.

    Hoping this turns out well for Air Arms, but will hang on for a little while before committing. :)

    I’ll be putting my name on the waiting list. I had a play with the fore-end at the Worlds and it worked like a dream. If that much thought has gone into the rest then it should be a new benchmark.

    Well let's hope so and that the action is fully left handed (ie side lever on the other side) and not just L/H stock.

    Sidewheel might prevent that.
