Oi, that blows. You'd figure the guys at BAR would know the difference between a Cyclone and a Cutlass. Oh well.

I know a TH Cyclone for sale, but that one puts out 30ft/lbs. Not exactly what you can use, I guess :)

yep it blows big time polar .. the first stock they ordered in for me had the BTAS on it after i told them it was not a btas model and i did not want a btas stock..when i opened the package even the protective bag that the stock was wraped in had "cutlas" printed on it in large letters so no excuse its unreal they actually sell the cyclone so they should of known the correct stock ... no prob here in ireland with higher energy airguns , as all airrifles are classed as firearms and so all are FAC .. no airpistols allowed or crossbows

That sucks.....

But you will be very happy with the TH stock when you get it.
I.m.o it is the most beautiful fx stock. and it's realy nice to shoot with.
I bought one for my cyclone and I will never change back to the synthetic stock.
Hope you get the right stock asap

new stock arrived today thankfully its the correct one .. fits perfect and nice grain but seems to have had a very light coat of satin varnish or maybe a dye not sure .. a spent half an hour working the rapid oil in to the grain and not real sure if the grain took any at all , its not very dark walnut .. have tried to load pics but no luck
