My replacement arrived today; heart sank a little as one corner on the carton looked to have taken a bit of a blow (I guess this distributor doesn't believe in double boxing...); the poly inserts were OK though so I guess worse than it looked.
Seems to be a good one on a test firing; iris all works as it should and as a nice little bonus it appears to have an almost silent e-shift mechanism after a few minutes run time. Happy days.
