They sent a courier out for the gun and then I heard nothing for 10 days, so I rang up asking what was going on, they then said the gun had been damaged and that I had done it so were sending it back, anyway after two days of arguing they agreed to replace the gun and would send a replacement out to a local rfd. Got a phone call from air arms to say the gun was there but damaged by the courier , except for the fact they had left something loose in the box that had rattled against it .
A replacement was promised a week later but never turned up, so six weeks after dropping the original back at air arms still no gun, so rang up asking what was going on. Was told it was been tested for an extended period and that it was performing faultlessly , it arrived on Thursday , quick look over all looked well. Roll forward to Sunday morning , put a scope on it and take it down the club . It fired five shots before leaking out of the barrel. Glad to say I've got my money back .
Thats not good, glad you got it all sorted out in the end, I waited 3 months for a FTP, and I have heard such poor things about it that I pulled the ladder up and went for a styer instead. Thats not to say in the future I would not get a FTP (maybe a Mk2 or 3, when they come out.
