Re: Air arms TX200 HC

The round holder was used up until a few years ago, so the gun could still be pretty new. I have the round holder on both my full length MarkIII TX's because I think they look better than the newer slab sided holder. They're also a direct swap, if you can find one. The slab side holder has always be...

Re: Pellet sizes

Test different die #'s and buy all you can afford, when you find the right one. Make sure to test at 55 yards and in a breeze. I have 20,000 pellets that are great in calm air, but pretty much crap in a light breeze.

Re: FPoole MHR

Thanks guys. I cooked myself a frozen pizza and looked after my wife and daughter. Both are suffering a bit of virus or food poisoning. They're feeling better now and, once again, I luckily missed out. My next birthday will see me enter another decade and I just can't fathom how I got this old and s...

Re: A question about U.K. farm land

But what if we lay flat on our backs, in a field of blooming rape seed, and shake the plants above us as we snort in? :lol: I'm only affected by oak pollen, but I can live with it. I used to take all kinds of prescription medicine for this, but I found that I could just use my will power and wash ou...

Re: A question about U.K. farm land

Thanks, now I know what rape seed looks like in bloom. Looks beautiful, but I wouldn't care for the pollen levels either.

A question about U.K. farm land

I watch some shows here that have nice shots of U.K. farm land. I see large areas covered with yellow flowers that are obviously planted as a crop. What are they? Just something I've always wanted to know.

Re: Pellet speed

With the 8.4 grain Exacts, I've seen U.S. FAC spec guns as high as 960, but I would say 920-940 is more typical.

Re: RWS branded TX200

That's me and, no, we didn't shoot the old guy(my father-in-law). The camera played tricks with the eye on that one. He was actually about a 1/4 of a mile away and to our left a good bit.

Re: tx 200

It will be a MarkII from around 1995. Just finished servicing #9772 and it was a MarkII. I don't know the low end of the MarkII numbers, but I've owned a MarkII that was #16,000 something. My first MarkIII was bought new in 2000 and has a 20,000 range serial number.

Re: RWS branded TX200

For sure a TX200. I only have 8 and have seen a few RWS TX200's. Even seen one in SR form, but again, all MarkII guns. Where the Air Arms normally is, there is RWS stamped and in the same font as TX200. Air Arms is not on these guns at all. Makes the 3rd one I've shot and all are normal Air Arms as ...
