Just had the tony leach drop in kit fitted.
What a lovely rifle this has turned out to be
Any one else fitted one?

My TX Is a lovely rifle out of the box the only thing I have done to it is polish and flatten the spring ends. I would love to try one of these mods as the recoil is still quite harsh but the RFD I bought both my AA's from provide free servicing and repairs with any new gun while owned by the purchaser. Any mods invalidate that service.

Well to be honest i didnt buy the tx200 to have it serviced or repaired.the tx is a rifle that is very easy to work on 4 screws and one bolt and you can work on it.with the new kit inside it is on par with a pcp so well worth doing it .pluss it can be put bact to original spec if needed . i am very pleased with the conversion and im waiting for another kit for my tx 200 hc.

I have the same TL 22mm kit in my TX and it’s a game changer! What a pleasure to shoot. Has me looking cross at my other boingers... or not looking at them at all...
Shoot long enough and you too will have a one hole group.

I installed this kit recently too. In regards to the shooting experience - WOW!!! I am just amazed at how smooth this 22mm kit is. I am just blown away by it. It shoots just a hair more mellow than my 10fpe HW50S. The most accurate pellets are FTT's shooting at 770fps (11.4fpe) and AA Express shooting at 800fps (11.2fpe). This is with (1) 2mm thick preload washer installed in the kit. It is very smooth and linear in the shot cycle, like nothing I've ever experienced in a spring gun. It's definitely not recoil-less like a PCP, but it's pretty darn close. The gun also still has some hold sensitivity, but it's not too bad. Overall, I can't image a better upgrade to a TX200.

Mine too but it was the Mk2; I would be disappointed if I got a TX that needed tuning.

I have had a few Paul Short tuned rifles(still have 2)all weihrauchs, but i had the chance to shoot a tx200hc with the 22mm conversion last week & was impressed, a friend of mine who also has a tx was so impressed he ordered one & its now fitted.
However, after a day at the range, he saw his groups open up from 1cm to 5cm, & he is at a loss to figure out why. The rifle was accurate with jsb exacts, & he's wondering if its changed its taste in pellets, he has just left my house with 4 tins of different pellets to try, so i hope my new tx likes exacts as he's taken my spare assortment

Did he give it a pull through as this normally puts it back on song.
