My cousin picked up an FP6 last week, he handled the store owner's FP6 folder before deciding on the standard stock as the folder didnt agree with him and the owner wanted $150 too much. I didnt handle the folder (I was more interested in the Galil, Daewoo and M1A the owner let me handle), but the standard stock FP6 with ~18-20" (forget which it is, I believe its a 20) is a nice sweet shooter. Nice length of pull for everyone (my cousin is 6'3" and has huge arms, when I am 5'7" and have short arms, my brother and girlfriend also enjoyed it), and put all 15 pellets from 3' 00 buck into a 24" diameter circle at ~40' with no choke repeatedly. Awesome gun, built in scope rail, backup iron sights are grooved into the rail with a flip-up frontsight for use with a ghost-ring rear (my cousin ordered all the options except the folding stock, but only the gun had come in in time for testing on Sunday). If I had the cash, I'd definitely buy an FP6.
