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 ...

Re: Pro sport AND TX200HC

The standard length gun is easier to cock and the HC is very close to the same level as the PS. I've only cocked a couple of HC's and they, as well as the PS and standard length TX, were FAC guns so I'm not sure it would be relevant. Would still have to think the PS will be the hardest to cock due t...

Re: TX withdrawal

I've just put the LGU 195 g piston, and the comp. tube with 3 mm lopped off the inside face, into my favorite TX. It's making perfect full 12 ft. lb. power, but it is having a lot of unexplained fliers. The kit worked fine in the previous gun except for a little lower power. The one thing that was v...

Apparently we got our Grand Canyon when a Scotsman or Yorkshireman dropped a penny down a gophers hole.

Re: TX withdrawal

I know the feeling. The weather here, this time of year, makes it tough to go shooting. Yesterday started out around 50F and only warmed to 70F with clear blue skies. I braved the harsh conditions and went out for a shoot anyway. :lol: Sorry, but I couldn't resist a bit of rubbing it in.
