The FTP is an "evolution" of the EV2 so has many similarities - quite a few parts of the trigger and striker assy are shared and the general setup is very similar, so expect minimal difference in trigger performance and shot development time.

The exhaust valve is a bit smaller in the FTP (it's massive in the EV) but I don't think this makes a lot of difference as the porting is the same size. The FTP's valve runs in a plain bearing (rather than

directly in the block) which in theory should aid consistency but I'm not sure how much real world difference it makes.

The sidelever loading bolt setup on the FTP is tidier and a bit more chunky, while the machining of the block is a lot more elaborate. Heavy - A lot of FT shooters have half a tree hanging off their action.

The barrels are the same stock on both guns and are typically excellent.
