Good to hear; the FTP is fundamentally a pretty good rifle but only after you ditch the unnecessary rubbish that AA added like the 8 clamp and the anti-tamper.
Mine also had the benefit of two missing barrel retaining bolts but I'll forgive them that.

I would also recommend the Rowan lifter with adaptor to keep the standard FTP hamster, makes those anti-aircraft shots a doodle...
