How to make my TX shoot like I want

Ok, understood, have never appraised on feel (neither noise, twang etc) my only criteria have ever been:
Lack of sight picture movement (ability to view pellet flight path and strike)
Consistency of fps (particularly between cool / warm conditions)
Longevity / robustness of components / engineering

Dave Price's TX tune is certainly a much softer feel (no surprise given the specs) but, for sight picture movement comes in behind the very light, ally, o-ring option of Nick G.

Good luck with your quest and thank you again for the videos.

If you would like more background and info on my own TX tuning journey feel free to PM me, or pop down for a weekend to shoot, appraise, eat and drink.

Got you at last Sake :o
Was it a typo? :lol: :lol: :lol: or too much wine?


Good grief you are alert (a good thing as Britain needs lerts!)
The case for the defence hinges upon the clever and subtle use of the word lead (aka Pb, AN 52) linked to the subject matter of shooting small projectiles composed principally of said material. May it please the assembled court.
In reality of course it is the cursed auto text spell check gizmos which become even more frustrating when you try to type at speed each day in two or more languages.
I shall dust off the dunces hat and stand in the corner for a suitably corrective period of time. :oops:

Yep - I know what you mean. I also have some of those snappy guns with very little sight picture movement - but it can also be achieved another way and its that one I want to try this time :)

The videos will keep coming - well thats if I do things I think are interesting enough that other people might want to see :)
