Re: TX200SR dissassembly

So after much fettling and several trips to the range in between I finally have this TXSR firing how I like it. I started with a 22 year old rifle that had seen very little use or indeed any servicing or maintenance from the sole previous owner. It has been fully stripped down to each individual par...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

I can understand the theory behind that mechanism during the cocking action, it's odd that there are no wear marks on either the bolt head or cocking arm though. The previous owner really must have barely used this rifle from new! So if that way of cocking is correct, in my mind, winding that screw ...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

Mines coming apart again tomorrow for some fine tuning after getting it down the range this week. I'll take some more pictures of bits for reference.

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

See those were my thoughts initially but I don't think the cocking link does push against it. After dissassembly + reassembly my current theory is that the rear edge of the piston pushes against the little stub extending from the sled into the cocking slot in order to push the whole action forward o...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

Now I have the spares from Julian, the SR is now stripped down to virtually individual parts. I can't believe how much grease there was to clean off of literally everything, some of which almost looked baked on in places Thankfully everything is in great condition, but new breach seals and piston se...

Re: TX withdrawal

Does a second TX200 to go next to the first one count? :lol:

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

Thanks for the tips. I've just had the action out of the stock to see what condition it was in, clean off a couple of decades of dust and get a better look at the 'sr' part of this rifle. Once I've got a baseline of its performance at the range later this week it will get a full strip down, thorough...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

Ahh go on then, if you're offering :D

Actually got the thing in front of me now. Can't wait to get it down the range this week and see how it performs.

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

That's a great document you sent through Julian, thanks. Would I be right in thinking that things like the cocking shoe, piston, compression tube, piston bearings, piston seal, breach seal and the parts associated with the spring are the same as those used on the 'recoiling' versions of the TX? I'm ...
