Re: Change in Power after first shot - TX200

I bought my TX second hand and I was having power fluctuation issues so I replaced the cocking shoe, breech seals and the piston seal. I have found now that when I take my first shot it averages at 770 fps (8.4gn JSB exacts), if I cock and fire another pellet straight away it drops to about 730-740...

Re: killer crow

A bump for this thread. I thought the killer crow had gone but with a few pigeons around he's back chasing them again. Not seen another kill but he actively pursues them usually when they have just landed on the ground. He's also dive bombed a few when they've been on the wires. Same markings, same ...

Re: Breech seals - TX200 mk2

The O rings are stacked on top of each other so it looks as though you had one missing. Have a gentle dig with a cheap dental pick but make sure you put two back in.

Re: Tin Bum Tuning - Short Stroke fitting.

That's the effect of the short stroke nose extension. More preload needed to try and make power.
I can almost guarantee that with a standard spring, maybe 2 washers and no short stroke you'll be back up to 11 ftlb+
Just out of interest why a maccari seal instead of the standard item?

BBF Flight

I just heard the beautiful and familiar sound of multiple Merlin engines overhead and rushed outside to be greeted by the sight of the BBF Lancaster directly overhead and I estimate at no more than 800ft. What a gorgeous sight and sound, a true beauty with a mechanical symphony rumbling away. That's...

Re: Tin Bum Tuning - Short Stroke fitting.

Hi Jason, Fitting a short stroke nose means the spring has to work harder to produce the power, probably why there are extra washers fitted. Some people like short stroke, personally I don't. The spring guide should be a snug fit into the spring but not tight so judicious use of sandpaper will help....
