Hi all,

After an unsuccessful bonding period with the PS, it looks like I shall be biting the pellet and going back to "old faithful". My old TX mk2 was a great rifle - god only knows why I sold it??? :roll:

I'm wondering though, seeing as they run on delrin anyway, what you TX owners have done to `tune` your rifles? Someone suggested replacing the metalwork with TbT top hat and spring guides, but is the difference noticeable?

Anyway, thanks for your advice/input.

changing to delrin guides will take the twang out, if you are thinking it will turn it into some stratospheric super tune, you will find not.
before starting out on tuning your rifle, shoot it over a decent period of time. then ask yourself, is there something that you don't like about the firing cycle. only then start the process. if you don't know what you want to achieve, how are you going to get there?

The biggest single improvement to my TX 200 Mk III was probably polishing both spring ends. This eliminated twang as well as noticeable torque.

Hi Guys..... I'm new on here and maybe there are views elsewhere in here anyway but some of the above points on this topic were of interest as its
titled TX200 mk3.

I've recently bought a HC version. What surprises me somewhat is this rifle is held up as one of the best springers, along wth the HW97 yet there's lots of people doing lots tweaks. ( and granted, people will always want to fiddle... I accept that ) So, maybe its not as refined as everyone tries to make out, or is everything else is just so poor ? not that I'm not happy with mine, its just an observation. Also, I've had mine crono'd a couple of times and the reading have been between 10.3 and 10.6...... again, I would have expected it to be around 11.0-11.5 ish ??? so far I've put about 700 pellets through it.

Your thoughts would be appreciated.
Cheers Roj
Ps I'm using AA field 5.51 16 grain and AA Hunters at 5.50

Hello, welcome.
I presume you have put the exact grain weight into the chrono/calculation?

Hi ! Thanks for your reply, its appreciated ... I assume so ???.... its a very reputable shop, but I didn't see him do it ( though I heard it ! ).

Personally if I did it, I take half dozen readings and take a Mean, but that's me ! Like most things in life, if you want ow't doin' proper, Do It Ya'self !

For 100 quid I'll go and buy one and do my own..... then I'll know where I stand.

Cheers Roj
