How do they justify it being £500 (50%!!) more than an HFT500? Its effectively the same rifle.
If they were to put an electronic regulated action into a proper FT style stock with adjustable everything (as per a top spec modified FT rifle with no AT, loads of bling and things to twiddle now that would give an FT shooter a tingle in their 'special place'.
Their last FT rifle was a bit disappointing with reliability issues and basically the same stock as this new rifle (and the Target/ Panther) so maybe its time for another go?
