1. The Forum Rules have undergone some minor changes and updates.  Please take the time to read them; it will only take a couple of minutes of your time. By doing so, you lessen the chance of incurring the wrath of the moderation team or making yourself look foolish to other members.

    90% of users posting adverts in the Sales forums need to be reminded to read the rules as their posts are wrong.  This is unnecessarily time-consuming and will no longer happen - if your advert doesn't follow the Sales Rules it will be deleted and you'll have to start all over again.

    Do not make inappropriate or offensive posts - including threats, harassment, swearing, prejudice, defamation, deliberate insults or name-calling, other negative remarks about this forum, its moderators and administrators or your fellow members. Even if this is just your own personal opinion, RESPECT YOUR FELLOW MEMBERS.'

  3. Dear members,

    Our membership (like our country) consists of people from all walks of life; different in far more ways than can be listed here and each with a different view based on their experience of life - regardless of their colour, religion or cultural heritage. Every single person in the UK has been born of mixed race – we are a multi-coloured and multi-cultural country.

    As many of you are aware there are a handful of individuals amongst this membership that persist in making provocative, inflammatory, racist and otherwise offensive comments. This has been happening across the forum to a certain degree but is most especially prevalent in the Adult section.

    The moderation team has tried to stay on top of this, however unfortunately because of the ‘offensive’ nature of much of its content we don’t monitor the Adult section quite as much as perhaps we should. As a result much of this behaviour has gone unnoticed unless it has been reported to us. While the team always intended to take a "light touch" approach to the Adult section it would seem that some people aren’t quite adult enough to be left unmonitored after all.

    This behaviour is, and always has been against Forum Rules as well as the specific stipulations of the Adults forum and it will no longer be tolerated. We feel it's time to draw a line in the sand and as such from this point onward offenders will receive an immediate and permanent ban from the forum.

    In order for us to achieve our goal of restoring the forum to the friendly and tolerant place it once was, we ask that ALL members be mindful of the content they post and help us to stop unacceptable behaviour by using the 'Report' tool at the bottom of any offending post - the results of which can be seen only by Admin/Moderators.

    You should all receive a copy of this message by PM.

    Got my TX200HC out of storage at the weekend, it had been fired around 300 times and then hasn't been used for the last 10 years. Fired it a few times and it felt like it did all those years ago, no grinding feeling on the underlever or anything that sounded or felt wrong, I gave it a rubdown with an oily rag and oiled all the moving parts. Is there anything else I should do (eg grease the piston or in the breach) or will it be fine to use?

    should be fine to use,have you got a pull through? if so just clean the barrel,if its fine leave it,no point in fixing it if its broke,could strip it down and take a look at all the seals to see if they have deterated over the years.

    Just ordered a pull through and got some cleaning pellets too. It was well oiled before it got put away and has been kept in a fleece lined rifle bag. I didnt really want to strip it down if I could help it, so will see how it performs after a few hundred pellets and then strip it down if needs be.

    If it ain't broke, don't fix it!

    The lubricants may have become a bit degraded over the years through lack of use (thickening up) but bung some shots through it to disturb and settle the lube and it should be OK. Piston seal may have become a bit brittle with age and lack of use but chrono it and if it's above 10 f/lbs, its fine.

    What he said, but I will add not to be afraid of stripping it down. I didn't really like the one I had, but I have to say that it was the easiest and fastest strip/rebuild that I have ever done. A complete novice could do it successfully, first time, unattended and still have zero problems. :up:
