If I hadn't bought the Steyr roughly the same time as I bought the FTP, I would not be advertising it for sale. I have had many airguns (virtually all of the Daystates, from my current Regal to a Target). The FTP wipes the floor for build quality and accuracy with all of them.
Absolutely agree about a custom made stock as I have never been able to fit a standard stock even an adjustable one due to my LOP, or reach to pull , of 17 1/2 inches. It's quite amusing watching people try to use my guns ! LOL.
Hence why I was prepared to buy an action and then get a stock to fit me but AA deemed it a non starter and lost themselves a sale I'm afraid.
