I dropped into the Air Arms factory today - chatting with the guys there hey confirmed that the first few FTP have been sent out this week.
Minelli have finally delivered all the stock components for the first batch so they will be going out at about 10 at a time as soon as they are put together and checked - Quality control was clearly top of mind so I am sure this will be one worth waiting for.
Out of interest I saw the FTP reg next to the EV reg - totally different so anyone harbouring that worry can relax.
The production rifle I saw was lovely - sadly not mine so I will have to wait patiently but it will be worth it!
Some folk will indeed be having a Happy Christmas
