Why are there 3 refurb. offered for sale? only one new one in stock. rt handed I'm thinking of getting one. Why so many refurbs? got me worried.
Typically, any that are waiting to be repaired will get repaired and put online all at once. I'd bet they were all needing a new regulator that the repair guys had to wait on, and when they came in, they all got fixed at once.
Is the muzzle break removable?
Yes, one set screw
Hello, please let me know when this rifle is going to be again in stock... seems you dont have it for a while..!!
It's in stock
A few questions, Does Prymid Air do any service to these guns if they break ? Would I have to send this back to england for fixing ? The warranty says life time ? Is this a pretty good warranty anything anybody should know about the warranty process ? I heard these guns have had issues with leaking air ?
Yes. The warranty service is done in house. You'd need to consult either the product manual for warranty details or give Pyramyd Air's tech department a call.
Hello: I've seen some great videos on this gun. I was wondering if anyone has a shot string for the FTP 900. I'd also like to see some 5 shot strings with accuracy at say 50 yards. I know this gun will out shoot my current skill set but I would like to see how it compares to other guns. Thanks.
My FTP 900 produced about a 15 fps spread over 100 shots. It was extremely consistent. At 50 yards off of the bench, dime size 5 shot groups were typical.
Is there a way to increase the energy of this rifle beyond 12 FPE? Something in the 14-18 FPE would be ideal (depending on the pellet).
It can be done. There is a hammer adjustment screw in the back of the action. Typically though, they do not perform quite as well as they do at 12 FPE.
Pyramydair needs to do a side by side test of this rifle and the HFT 500.
For the most part, they are in two different classes. Both are 12 FPE guns and use the same barrel. That is about where the similarities end. The HFT is not regulated, but still delivers upwards of 60 consistent shots per fill. The trigger is not as good as the FTP 900 though. And most obvious, the stock lacks the same adjustment features on the HFT. The HFT is a great gun to get into FT with here in the US, but the FTP would be the top of the line option.
How accurate and competitive can this gun be compared to other air guns shooting at 20 ft lbs? Seems like a it would be a disadvantage.
They are two separate classes. 12 FPE would be in the WFTF class while 20 FPE would be in the open class. That said, this gun is just as accurate as any Open class gun I have owned or shot. You just need to practice more to know the proper hold offs for wind. That is the biggest difference. To put it in perspective for you, at the 2014 US Field Target nationals, the highest overall score was shot with a 12 FPE gun. I came in 5th in WFTF class, only 4 people in Open class had better scores than I did. Open class consisted of about 30 shooters. Biggest thing is to practice, if you don't do that, you wont be competitive. Simple as that.
If mounting a Hawke 8-32x56 what mount height would be best?
You would want to go with a high or extra high mount
Is a left hand option available..?
It is in the works but there is not a firm ETA on them.
What scope mounts and scope are shown in the picture for this rifle?
Those photos came directly from Air Arms but that is a Schmidt & Bender 12.5-50x56 FT model.
foot pounds of energy? is this a 12 foot point gun?
Yes. Around 11.94.
