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.

  2. A reminder of one of the Forum Rules:

    'Behaviour

    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.'

    There have been changes made to our censoring software in an attempt to help with this growing problem.

  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.

  5. Postings on Politics, Religion & Controversial Off-Topic Material

    The majority of users do not want to read about these subjects and people have left the forum as a result of it – this is after all an 'Airgun' Forum. It’s all very well to say they don’t have to read it if they don't want to, but as most of us use the ‘New Posts’ button there is no easy way to avoid it.

    All AGF staff members are in favour of people being able to discuss what they want, but we have to draw the line somewhere if it is upsetting other users. We don’t want to read about these topics either.

    IMPORTANT- The discussion of politics and religion is no longer allowed anywhere on the forum (including the Adult section).  The only exception is if it's airgun related - they must be put in the Airgun Related Politics section..

    We will not tolerate bullying or personal attacks, racism or any other offensive 'isms'. we will remove these topics from the forum, we will not give you an area where you can abuse each other. We will not hesitate to ban offenders.

Getting Grips With The Tx200

    So had not really had a chance to shoot my (new to me) TX200HC due to getting it just before the lockdown. But then, we were released back into the wild and I had a proper chance to get to grips with it....
    I do find the TX a tad more hold sensitive than my HW97, but I've had the 97 a long time and am well used to it.
    These groups were shot at 35yds, in open air, and it was a bit windy, (getting my excuses in early). :facepalm:
    First few groups were not that great...

    But then, with practice, when the wind stopped blowing, I managed to tighten it up a bit... :thumb:

    tx200 13 june 2020_  (4).jpg tx200 13 june 2020_  (5).jpg
    These were all 5 shot groups and some 10 shot too....
    I'm getting there, slowly but surely.... :)
    I can see why people rave about the TX......still like my 97 better though... :D

    Same here you have to try both but l find the tx a little too fat on the stock against the hw. Mine both 177 but for me the hw is slightly better on accuracy. My pennies worth.

    Not done much paper punching with them, but done plenty of hunting out to 40m and they both put rabbits in the pot.

    What pellets are you using? Have you found what the gun really likes?
    My HC has a nicer cycle with 8.44gr than with 7.87gr. I only use JSB-manufactured, and die number can make a difference too. Accuracy of my HC and fettled 97k are much the same but the full length TX beats them both.

    I've only tried JSB Exacts 8.44 and JSB Heavies at the moment, not much in it, but the lighter pellets are a tad better.
    Keep meaning to try the Qys pellets, but have not got round to it yet.
    Will also try some others at some point, Superdomes, H&N FTT, etc.
    :)

    Did some testing last Sat in mine.
    Used:
    JSB 8.44 - 451,452,453
    JSB 7.97 - 452
    JSB 7.33 - 452
    HN FTT 8.something - 451
    QYS - 8.something domed
    QYS - 8.something streamlined
    QYS- 9.something streamlined
    Falcon Accuracy - 7.33 452

    The Falcons grouped best for me but I'll be taking her apart later and tinkering so it may all change.
