That reminds me of a washing machine that my Grandmother had.  It was powered by a small gasoline engine.

UK Airgun Gate / Re: New TX200 Maintenance ???????
« Last post by dave19113 on Today at 08:32:09 PM »
The first maintenance thing I'd do would be to order a machined cocking shoe from Air Rifle Headquarters

http://www.airrifleheadquarters.com/catalog/item/8000185/10276123.htm

I suspect when they're gone that will be the end of them.  I have a TX 200 by the way and my cocking shoe did fail.  The factory uses a sintered cocking shoe and it WILL bread using the power levels found in the American exported guns.  The steel shoe did smooth my cocking action as well.  If you want to spend a bit more get the forged front stock bracket at the same place.  Mine broke early on and I had a machinist make a custom unit for me.  The forged one is less expensive.

Do not drip anything into the compression tube.  If you feel you MUST do something clean out the factory lube, polish the spring ends, and reassemble with moly or Krytox on the lip of the piston seal.


Sounds good... I already ordered the cocking shoe and bracket.... Didnt install yet.... Just wanted to make sure I wasnt neglecting any maintenance


thanks

I would order a Weihrauch HW50s from Krale for under $250 and you would be getting one of the finest airguns in it's class. World renowned Rekord trigger which will spoil you and make you only appreciate finer things. This is a hobby - spoil yourself. You can always save money on less important things in life.

Then get a Leapers 3-9x40 scope with illuminated reticle, or a 3-12x40.

PM me if you have questions. I love shooting rats with fine German air rifles   ;D

The only pellets I've shot thus far are H&N Sport Barracuda 31.02gr.  They fit nice and snug, and seem to be grouping fairly well at 35 yards.  I've probably only put 35-40 down range, so I'm sue it's still settling in.

I don't care for the scope I got.  It's an Amazon special 3-9X40 Mil Dot, but I can't get both the target and the crosshairs in focus!  I do like the Leupold mounts, they seem to be holding well, but that scope will probably be replace with a 3-9X32 Hatsan Optima.

Ok wife is off to work so I went back down to the man cave. 60 rounds down range and the rifle is steading down nicely The top red sticker was 10 shots at  10 yards 9 in a ragged single hole and 1 flyer. As I said if this rifle continues to improve and a little TLC should make this a great little plinker/pester  ;D ;D ;D


Congrats on it.... I love mine.... took a little bit for a break in but nothing crazy.... I havnt taken mine out yet at distance but Im sure it should do well... looking forward to hearing about the updates and range reports.

I have a late-style gun apart; the diameter is .315 on this one.
