Does anyone know the diameter of the FTP 900 barrel?
That would be twice the radius.
I think it's 15mm but not sure?
Is that twice the radius or is that the diameter Jack?
or once round the outside ????o
That's the circumference
14mm mate same as mpr, I have an mpr stripper on mine to lose 6oz nose weight and a lot of length, btw if your gonna do the carbon shroud free floating thing look at laptop connections site and ask for 3k carbon 16mm id / 18mm od , bit of an odd size bout 25 quid , I have cut my rowan stripper down to be externally flush with the shroud, looks lovely and ends up shooting a bit flatter for some reason
Thanks Vinny, I appreciate the details. I will helping a friend of mine with his FTP over the winter.
Vinny, have you got any pics of your FTP with the carbon shroud and stripper on please?
This is a mega FTP , but it's top secret as to who own's it
Wow dave you did an amazing job of my pro target
Could you please provide a link to the 3k tube .I can't find the site.
Put laptopconnections in google and look at the one that comes up in ebay shops
Page four i think
Cheers for the pointer
Is the 500mm one long enough? I haven't got my gun with me and want to get one ordered.
Yes, the 500mm length is long enough.
there is also a place in Preston which does a matt version of the tube if you do not want a gloss finish. (WWW.RTFDroneTech.co.uk)
Cheers for the info Brian, I'm thinkin I'll go for the gloss one so its in keeping with the deep gloss of the bluing and the stock. Not decided if I'm gonna keep the standard air stripper or go for a UK Neil / Rowan one.
Which air stripped did you go for and did you notice any difference in accuracy?
If you go with the 18mm OD tube, it fits the breech of the FTP and also into the recess of the UKNeil air stripper perfectly.
Put an O ring at either end and you can fit the stripper so that the carbon tube is held firm, but not too tight.
Mine is working well with this set up.
Neil, would you have a piccy of the stripper , ive been using a cut down rowan one so its the same o/d as the carbon tube , I have noticed that my standers are all going a bit high so probably getting a bit of a kick , prone , kneeling no problem , so I, m looking for a stripper with the slots at the top , bit like a standard mpr one , any clues, tips hints etc , and no thanks not putting the original one back on , waaay tooo heavy
Here a link to a thread on another forum with a good picture of the stripper.
I get absolutely no kick off the FTP at all, probably in part to do with the weight, but there is certainly no jetting or felt recoil with this stripper fitted.
I have the cone set up so that the gap is a fractionally shorter than the length of a 8.4gr pellet.
As for a top slotted brake, Julian Bond has some a bit like that, but I'm sure anyone with a lathe and a slitting saw could make one.
