Re: TX200SR dissassembly

Was just told by another SR owner, Cloverleaf on the Airgunforum, that the end of the cocking link contacts the screw head near the end of the stroke and pushes the whole action forward. I guess you are lifting the action and compressing the last bit of spring to lock up and that's why it gets harde...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

I'd have to take my gun out of the stock, but I'm pretty sure there is a shiny spot. The hole has no threads, so no grub screw.

Chandelier

A local church was having a business meeting about the need for more light in the sanctuary. Several members finally agreed that a nice big chandelier would be just the thing. Questions were raised as to the cost of said chandelier. An old man stood and said that the last one he'd priced, for his fo...

Re: Age of TX200 HC

I've only seen pictures and read owners statements, but it seems the early HC's had the old MarkII piston with it's shorter stroke. If you open the gun, you can check this by measuring the distance the tip of the rod sticks out past the pistons rear skirt. MarkI and MarkII will be around 45 mm, with...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

The MarkI uses a hex head bolt instead of the allen headed bolt. Not any help, but it is a point of interest and difference.

WWII fighter pilot

An old allied fighter pilot ace gives a little recounting of one of his encounters. He's speaking to his church on Memorial day and the story is about the time he shot down 3 German planes. "I was cruising along when I see this Focker coming at me from 10 o'clock, then I see another Focker at 2...

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

Maybe the new piston seal has a tighter fit and will slow the gun a bit. I don't think negative preload would be good. That screw is also something I really don't know about. I think the cocking link pushes against it when the action slides forward at the end of the cocking stroke. I left well enoug...

Re: i remember when...(god it makes me feel old to say that)

Zing, I'm not sure that "mad as a box of frogs" is a compliment. I was once called a prat and a bollocks only to find out those aren't good thing either. :lol:

I'm located in Florida, but if you fill in your location, someone is bound to be near enough for you to have a try.

Re: Should my top hat come off?

Absolutely Air Arms stock parts as far as the top hat and weight are concerned. You will never unscrew the top hat without damaging it. They are very tight and, when you try to turn it, the spring just grabs harder. Sort of like those Chinese finger trap toys. You have to grip the top hat with vise ...
