Air Arms TX200 MK2 review
« on: November 14, 2010, 10:16:03 PM »
Well, this weekend i really got to spend some time shooting my TX200, and here is as honest of a review that i can muster.

GUN:  AA TX200 MK2 .177 caliber Beech Stock

OPTICS: Centerpoint 4x16 AO (walmart special)

MOUNTS:  UTG dovetail to weaver adapter, with stock weaver rings that came with the centerpoint scope

AMMO:  Crosman Premier Lights 7.9; CPHP 7.9; HN FTT 8.64; Predator polymags 8.

Well, now that you have all the juicy info, here's the nitty gritty.  Immediately after recieving the rifle, i went over it.  I pulled it apart and took a look at the insides.  for starters, the rifle was very very very easy to take apart.  I used all stock parts, and just lube tuned with moly.  Shooting the rifle, its quite loud at the gun, but not past any of my other springers.  the recoil is swift, and sharp, but a lot less than my gamo big cat, likely due to the weight.  I am working on borrowing a chrony, and i will post some numbers on the different pellets i have shot.  so far, i haven't shot a pellet it DOESN'T shoot into near one holes at 10 yds.  at 20 yds the groups open up a hair, but i know its likely me and not hte gun.  I have ordered a Maccari seal for it, and i will do before and after chrony strings once i get it in. 

All in all, its a fantastic gun, i can't say a bad thing about it other than its weight.

Mine doesn't have the shroud... just a muzzel break style LDC.  mine is the MK2.  its quite about 10 ft away, but at the gun its still loud.
