Re: Pro sport AND TX200HC

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.

Re: Pro sport AND TX200HC

Cocking is different, but the loading is exactly the same. I shoot from a seated position and point the gun upwards for easiest loading. I get the pellet sitting near the tip of my thumb and use my index fingertip to hold the very edge of the pellet skirt. Then i put this into the loading port until...

Re: TX200 Short Stroking

I've never fired a 98 mm stroke TX that was 12 ft. lbs., but I can say that the FAC gun is very accurate at 900 fps. It's just a tiny bit less forgiving and I'm not sure that the extra speed in the wind makes up for the differences.

Re: TX200SR dissassembly

I'd count on a new piston seal for sure. The piston seal will go bad just sitting in a cabinet. Had several that were maybe 5 years old in a sealed baggie. I took one out and it busted when I tried to install it. I took the others and all crumbled when I squeezed them. These were the translucent sli...
