Disassembly w/o spring compressor (video)?
« on: February 17, 2017, 06:32:44 PM »
I read a lot about the need for a spring compressor if one does a DIY tune on an air rifle but in this video he doesn't use one. It seems quite safe. Do break barrels disassemble  differently than the underlever in the video?

There isn't a lot of pre-load on a TX. Also chances are it's a 12 fpe gun.

I forgot that a good number of places only allow low powered airguns. This makes sense now, thanks.

You can disassemble most TX 200 rifles with no spring compressor.  You can even reassemble them - if you're careful not to strip the bolt.  That is one of about two airguns you can do without a compressor.

Even so, reassembly is much easier with a spring compressor.  It's kind of difficult to hold everything  in alignment while performing reassembly.

On most guns it's dangerous to try disassembly without a compressor.  There are exceptions but a spring compressor is highly recommended for all of them - at least for me.  Yes, I use one with my TX 200, too.

 Although this is a good video it might give the wrong impression on certain individuals that they can disassemble different types of airguns with out a spring compressor and gentlemen that would cause dire consequiences. I feel the op  doesn't mean it that way  but regardless I need to remove it for the safety of some. David
