Re: tuning kit for my pro sport

I live in the USA and just installed a vortek pg2 tuning kit in my aa tx200 mk3. My gun came to me as a fac gun from pyramyd air. The tuning kit is set up for 12 fpe.

Re: Springers and sticks

I am indeed American. For the match I sat on the ground using no aids. However, now that I have tried it, the bucket and sticks seem much easier for a 60 year old newcomer to the sport. I will continue to practice while sitting on the ground, but I don’t see much future in it for me.

Springers and sticks

Polishing spring ends

I have read a lot lately about polishing the spring ends on my tx200. I have been unable to find any videos,and a lot of what I read online seems to be the work of hackers. Does anyone know of a video or set of instructions including materials to do this job correctly? Or is it even worth it? Thanks

Tx200 lever buffer

500 pellets thru my new to and the lever buffer is gone. Quick search online and I know what to do, but I notice that some of the posts about the buffer falling off date to 2006. What is air Arms waiting for? Surely the engineers must have heard of this problem by now. Otherwise I love the gun. Hope...
