Re: TX200 Mk2

I'd still try them out. Take some AA/JSB pellets with you. You may find that one or both of the guns just seem to be special, accuracy wise. I have a special MarkII and it just seems easier to get a tight group. I've never seen a bad TX, but my first, and last, 97 was a bad one. It's always best if ...

Re: Spring life

Each gun and each spring is a tiny bit different. I think the factory put the washer in to get to a target velocity. They allow for the gun to bed in and gain some power is my guess. I've heard of new guns having 5 or more washers. Even the barrel can produce a change between two guns using the exac...

Re: merry christmas ya filthy animals...

Merry Christmas to all. Zing, if you contemplate a move to the south, Florida is pretty much full up. :lol: The weather is beautiful, but we are crowded, unless you have plenty of money and no need to work. There's actually loads of space in southwest and central Florida.

Re: My TX200 .177 build

Is it just me or does anyone else thing the Mk3 TX and HC would look so much better with a Mk1 front end/latch set up ? The older HC models had a round, blued holder, just like the old MarkI and MarkII guns, only a tad shorter. I fitted them to both my MarkIII's and they do look so much better. The...

Re: Grub Screw in the TX200 Chamber

It's the tip of the screw that holds the front stock bracket to the receiver. With the stock off, it's the little aluminum piece that the forward 2 stock screws go into. It can loosen over time and cause accuracy to fall off pretty badly. I always remove it, clean the threads and the hole, and add s...

Re: Tin Bum Tuning - Short Stroke fitting.

That's the effect of the short stroke nose extension. More preload needed to try and make power. I can almost guarantee that with a standard spring, maybe 2 washers and no short stroke you'll be back up to 11 ftlb+ Just out of interest why a maccari seal instead of the standard item? Timmy, I feel ...

Re: I feel his pain

The reason I suggested the water is, a fellow I know had the same thing happen, but it was a large black and white rat. He finally got it with the water, but it took 3 days.
