Aa Tx200 Hc

Recommended Posts

Hi!

At the beginning of my first post here I'd like to say a few words about me..

My Name is Peter, I come from Poland.. and last 7Y I'm living near Rotherham..

My English is a bit crapsky . but, i try do the best.. :)

 

Ok. it's enough about me.. I'd like to Ask You for help..

I have bought TX200 HC last Year, and I really enjoy shoting, but i think that my TX needs attention of some good specialist.

I could buy some tunning kit and mount it by myself, but i'm not sure that it will be good idea.. it's not an cheap Hatsan or Gamo.. ;)

 

Can You tell me, Whos hands are the best to tune my TX.. ?

 

Peter.

Peter,

 

the great thing about the TX's is that they're 'tuned' right out of the box.

The pistons run on front and rear split ring bearings, so no metal to metal contact.

The mainsprings have tophats varying in size depending on calibre, and rotation bearings on the spring guide.

 

Unlike many manufacturers of springers these days, AirArms are actually generous enough to build their rifles with

lubricant! LOL

 

So provided chrono reports are consistant, just shoot and enjoy, if not a service kit from the factory includes spring,

piston seal, piston bearings, breach seal, preload washers to add if/as required and a generous amount of lube.

 

What more could you possibly want? :awink:

Hi!

Thanks for Your reply.

I'm really happy with my TX, but it was HW97 in option before.. and I was shooting HW couple times last weeks, and I'm a bit jealous..

HW has .. smoother shoot cycle, deeper, and lower sound .. when my TX is a bit noisy, spring is clangour sometimes,..

Don't take me wrong, I don't want to swap my TX.. no chance.. :) Its my baby and I want all the best for him.. :)

It got nice thick slipbag, best JSB pellets and nice SWFA 10x42 scope.. just shooter -rubbish- a bit.. :/

Maybe You're right.. Maybe I'm expecting too much..

The tx does start to twang after a couple of thousand pellets. This is due to the -rubbishy- grease air arms put in the rifle. A strip down and regrease will cure the twang.

I've just tuned my TX trigger.. Well.. "tuned' is maybe too big word.. dismended it, stick PET piece at side of trigger to kill loose and I had to clear all pieces..

God, due to world financial crisis AA must start use honey instead of grease..

Nobel for who discovered white spirit.. Much better now.. Also I cleared all grease from guidance, spring and piston, polished both sides of spring and regreased with new grease.. will see , but as I tried it now its a bit better.

Now I think about swap front spring guidance for something lighter.. I think that original one is a bit heavy..

What You think?

Good reply ,that, Sam. I used to use Tx 200s and they are SO well made compared with Weihrauchs, just too heavy for me. I'd place the HWs second because they are pretty solid guns but somehow they don't seem to care so much these days about quality control. Too much grease and badly finished springs and power too low for instance. I remember buying one of Air Arms overhaul kits, I mean, what a good idea? Pity other manufacturers don't copy! ( Wouldn't it be nice too if you could 'phone up SMK for a kit?)

HI again!

One month ago I was on Holiday in Poland..and i left my TX in CEKAUS for tuning..

And that was best idea I had since I bought my TX200.. :)

I understand, that TX is well made, and good quality.. but now is excellent!!

Quiet, short and soft kick, and not picky on hold.. God, it was worth every single penny I paid !!..

1.5m/s maximum spread on Vo.. usually less than 1m !

I`m not looking for anything else! Just enjoying shooting.. and waiting for next WHFT championship.. :)

 

 

BTW, If somebody looking for nice HFT range we've just set up excellent airgun section at Mattersey Riffle and pistol club : http://www.matterseyrapc.org.uk/

 

 

Peter.

Hi Peter,

Good to know you've got the rifle to the stage you wanted to.

 

All you have to do now is enjoy it :banana:

Peter,

 

how much is it to join Mattersey at the moment?

 

I used to shoot there back in the '80's but the commitee got all anti and spoiled it but they may have changed for the better since then.

 

Do you have to be a member or do they do visitors fees?

Hi!

I do apologise I was so quiet.. I had system crash and I lost all my bookmarks and passwords :/

Ive just managed to find password to this forum..

 

At Mattersey.. £100 joining fee and later £206/annum membership..

I was hoping that since we set up our range it will be easier and cheaper to join just only Airgun section but.. this thing cannot be sorted .. Waiting 6 months for an Open day and still do not know the date :/

At the moment, is only one way to shoot airgun at our range - join full membership.

Unless someone have an FAC license - can pay £10 and have fun all day, but better is to phone up someone who knows better club rules. Can give number to Steve Wilson - one of comitee member.

 

To be honest, I'm very disappointed with Comitee politics..

Our range not cost our club even penny - Ive made all targets, we set up course including posts, ropes and alsos - and They dont managed to do one Open Day :/

Sometimes I think that will be better to pack up my toys and move to different sand pit..

 

Sorry for my mouning.. Im giving up.. :/
