have had mine a good few months now and shot quite a few local and national hft comp, all i can say is my ftp has been flawless from the get go, and assume aa really must have upped their qc. yes i do know a few people who have had issues with there's but i think that comes with a new run of any product?
the ftp has really upped my game in the comps and i reckon it is excellent value for money.
one thing i would say is the rifle is heavy, for me that is a good thing but just be aware!
also i have not modded mine in any way because i have experienced no zero/poi shift in its stock form
just go for it
oh one more thing i chronoed it in the garden yesterday, results using aa field diablo =
