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.

    '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.'

  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.

Good news Just zeroed my new tx 200

    Just took my tx out for zeroing and wow, what a difference. Compared to my lightning it's like shooting a pcp. It took me a few shots to get used to the trigger being so soft but after that it was spot on. All I need now is plenty of practice to be sure of a small consistent grouping. At least now I know it's all down to me and the marksmanship principles I had put away since leaving the army.

    Thanks jay, I was under the impression that with this being the longer barrelled version that it has a silencer built in already.

    Ahhhh, not the HC then!!
    Still a lovely rifle, I found the full length a touch nose heavy for me, but a friend competes with a full length and he can't get on with the HC!!
    Good luck with it and get some pics of the groupings once you've settled with it!!!

    the standard length tx does have a small built in moderator and its not a nois rifle. i had the standard length tx200 and used it for hft they are very accurate! i think the longer barrel on the standard one despite being a little front heavy makes for less hold sensitivity. mine seemed to shoot like a pcp off the bench! took it hunting a few times but sold it when a friend offered my an s400... regretted it ever since.
    they are cracking rifles, dont worry too much about finding a moderator for it mate just enjoy it:up:

    Congratulations and well done on getting your hands on a TX. Your post tells everyone exactly why if you want a springer you should buy a good one, not some overpriced tat that relies on a good British name to sell rubbish. Quality shows in results.
    Regards
    Tim

    Thanks guys, it's nice to get positive comments regarding a purchase even if you already think it's good. I couldn't agree more about cheap springers, definitely worth spending that bit more on better quality. Of course if your budget doesn't allow it then you have 2 choices, wait and save a bit more or put up with something far less refined. Knowing what I know now I would wait and save the extra.

    There seem to be TXs everywhere and all seem to be happy with them.

    Long live the spring thing :D

    I have a tx at the moment, and they are very acurate, I used to be able to get pellet in pellet from a sitting position. I have recently sold it to a member on here as I just dont use it, and I feel guilty having it sit there gathering dust. On a plus side with one sold, I have bought another pcp, a s10 bbk.

    Looks like I have chosen well. The tx seems to be a popular gun. As soon as I get a grouping worthy of posting a pic on here, I will do. The one I did whilst zeroing was ok, all shots in the squirrels head of the target and that included some stray ones due to my snatching the Oh so smooth trigger.

    There's loads of scope for improvement on the trigger unit, polish the sears, a nice very light lube and it will be lovely and crisp!!!

    Got the HC and despite it's obvious age (got it second hand at a reasonable price) it shoots sweet as a nut.
