New Spring?

Tue Apr 06, 2021 8:18 am

My Air Arms 12 year old TX200HC .177 is doing 670 ft/sec and 8.39 ft/lbs. It did 11+ ft/lbs when new. Its done many thousands of shots. I think I probably need a new spring.
It’s just used for target shooting, doesn't need to be massively powerful, but I would like to get it back to 10-11 ft/lbs.
So do I go for a straight replacement or an upgrade with a Titan XS ?
Thoughts, advice, etc. would be appreciated.

Are you sure it’s the spring and not the seal that’s gone south.

imho if you do decide to replace the spring, use the AA spring. no need to cut, dress it etc.
