Have a word with Dave Welham from airmasters 88 he has done extensive mods intrnally and externally to the 900 now, stocks, barrel tuning regs ect, cant rate him high enough, dont think you will get a dead ftp tho, reduced lock time is acheivable.
saw a hybrid isp/ ftp a while back apparentetly really nice, cant see the point after shooting simmos isp tho,
incidentally Dave carbined his and had a few harmonic issues also sorted

Just interested in the weight issue here , no getting away from it , its a lump,
I can only assume its a standing thing
I ended up adding about6oz to the butt shaft which made the ftp heavier but effectively made the balance point further back , made it much more stable, the weight pulled down on your shoulder rather than wanting to lift up , can be a bit critical when you relax
