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.

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.

    so about two weeks ago i took-apart my tx200 put some gun oil in it and the put it back together although i didn't touch the barrel.
    after i put it back together it has been very inaccurate, it used to shoot pellet on pellet but now im lucky if i hit a can of backed beans i have tried zeroing the scope and using just the barrel as sights but is still inaccurate any suggestions thanks.

    edit: also i have put about 200 pellets thought it since then.

    It depends where you put the gun oil, if it went in the barrel or comp tube you may have a dieseling problem which can screw breech and piston seals, even break the spring. The only places for oil on a TX are an occasional drop on the comp tube exterior, cocking links and safety button.
    If you squirted it into the comp tube or barrel then you're looking at a thorough clean at least, a stripdown at worst.

    I'm willing to bet you've got it in places you shouldn't have,potentially ruining your TX so it requires a big overhaul.

    Exactly where are you in Somerset?
    Julian at Bond Gun Accessories in Bridgwater would be able to help and has all the Air Arms spares in stock. If you're close to Street I can do it for you but it will cost you a beer!
    You will also get your oilcan confiscated. :D

    If you type in the following words to your google search engine 'tx200 stripdown guide' :up:.
    There is a good download from Cape on there.
    you have come to the right place to get help, but please remember not to shoot at Gods critters until you can put a pellet inside a 5p piece at all of your hunting ranges.
