should I v mach tune a mk3 tx200

First post on these forums, so please take it easy on me .
Anyhow back on topic,
I recently bought a second hand .22 mk3 tx200, which in my eyes looks immaculate. I went down my local field target club (marshfield, cardiff) on the weekend and got the gun chronoed and had a play, and I must say I had a really good time.
Now on to the main point of the question, .
The gun in my eyes fires well and groups well (obviously with a few flyers because I'm still learning) with fair power having being measured at 10.5ft. lbs on the chrono, however as the gun was bought second hand and not knowing exactly how old the gun is, how often it has been used I was wondering if it would be worth buying the v-mach tuning kit and giving the gun a little tlc and a "tune up".
Now my question is, is the v-mach kit worth the price? Would I notice a difference? And overall is it worth it?
Alternatively would a rebuild and re-lube be adequate. £70~ is expensive but I'm more than happy to spend that money if it is going to improve what I already believe is a lovely gun.
Any views and opinions are more than welcome. And I look forward to what you all have to say.

I bought a HC .177 in October and 1000 pellets later it developed a real twang. I'm getting it tuned and all bespoke spring,guide,seal made with a trigger polish.
In an update from the tuner he has noted that the spring was out of square at one end, oil like grease was everywhere including the wrong side if the seal (still only putting out 10.6ft/lbs though) and there was six metal preload washers!
Maybe this is Air Arms policy to use a weak spring and a ton of preload ? but I'm disappointed about the spring being out if square, hence the twang.
To be fair its a stunning rifle and will be mine for life but from this experience I'd advise getting a specialist tuner to review or fit the kit if possible.
all the best

nope, it was brand new, I picked it up the day it was delivered to my rfd from the supplier.
I'm going to post a review of it tuned as its amazing now, loads better.
