Default Ftp900

I was at the club this morning and my mate was filling his FTP900 he walked by me and it was hissing. That will be the third time in just over a year it has been back to air arms. My question is what would you do? We have a league shoot next weekend and he is well placed to win his grade this year.

Don't send it to anyone

For about 50 quid from best fittings buy the day state type quick coupler and fit it yourself

I did this after advice from nick m and haven't looked back

Interesting, mine leaks on and off and sometimes needs a blast of air to seal again. Give it a few refills and a couple of days, mine usually sorts itself out.

How easy do the filler caps remove from the air cylinders?, do you have a pic of the adapter conversion at all.

Mine started leaking after fitting new regular. Anything over 150psi and it would leek

Google 'xtx air' and on their site /YouTube channel are videos on reg removal and fill adaptor fitting.

It's very easy and only requires basic tools
