    Couldn't watch the whole vid due that annoying repetitive music clip , looks a very well engineered bit of kit mind you .

    Looks like an interesting project, but I'm one of those traditionalists who prefers a rifle to look nice and to me that's just not pretty; subjective, I know, but there we are. On the other hand, it's a practical way to have a "recoilless" air rifle for those who don't want to go dabbling with PCP, and with a bit of attention, the same principle could probably be developed into something which *does* look nice. ;)

    Seconded on the music front, too. It wouldn't be as bad if he just let the song play...

    Nope - abandoned after 10 seconds of the looping Bad to the Bone opening riff. Yeah, I know I can control my PC's volume but if he's gone to all the trouble of modding the rifle and doing a video the least he can do is sort the Flipping tunes out.

    On his video channel he has moded several rifles and there is a TX200 he had done that shows little modificatoin and looks in the most like the original ;) but with the sliding action.

    But if you were heavy into FTT, it would be the rifle to kick the Asses of the pcp boys.

    As a concept its brilliant, barring the magnet closure, as a looker, what a ugly bitch.

    If only the likes of Steve Pope could get his hands on 1 and make a retro fit for us all . Ano a dream too far and you would probably have some woodwork adjustment but i would have a go :D:D

    I dont think that the airgun makers want us to have rifles, that they have not designed themselfs, otherwise the, Sheeran rifle would be on the shelfs by now.

    Never got chance to own the TX200SR wished i had tho. where they alot heavyer than the standard 1s of today. Anyone out there owned both? and is that the reason AA stopped production.

    Where did you see the rifle recoil in the video, it moved back, but was all but dead, more so than a TX200 SR.
