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.

  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.

    considering buying a tx200 or pro sport.

    Compared to weihrauch build quality how do they come. Given the choice would uou weihrauch or air arms.

    Are the tx200 and pro sport any good?

    In short both are excellent.
    Most favour the TX over the prosport. The prosport comes under fire because people complain about the colour and sharp edge on the underlever, and increased hold sensitivity, together with cocking link to cylinder screw working loose. None of those concern me.
    Both have have bearings on the piston/ compression tune which gives a tuned performance from the box. Quality of both in my opinion is top notch .
    The HW counterparts are also a favourite of mine, but some work will be required internally to get things on par with the AA.

    TX200 is as accurate as an accurate rifle can be, but it is not something to be taken on a walk and stalk unless you have the muscle definition of a body builder.
    Once scoped you’re looking neigh on 5kg.
    Would I sell mine, err no does everything it says and the box.

    For me they all shoot very accurately but the AA win on internal & external finish.

    Air Arms are far better build quality than Weihrauch. Better out of the box shooters too.
    The stocks in terms of ergonomics are a world apart from the planks fitted to Weihrauch rifles.

    The TX is very popular, but don't rule the Pro Sport out until you've handled one. For me the PS balances far better than a TX.

    More stock options on a TX or PS would be nice.

    Here you go..... https://www.customstock.co.uk/cs700-thumbhole-stock-variation/

    Two TX200s here Ragz, in 0.177” and 0.22”. I think they are a great rifle and luckily I do have arms like Garth hence not worried about the weight really. They handle very nicely on the standard stock and as everyone says are very accurate. The trigger is probably as good as the WH, and they are staggeringly easy to strip down. No mainsprings pinging off towards the nearest window!

    May be a dummy question from a non springer tinkerer, but do the Tx and Pro Sport come fitted with anti-tamper screws like their new pcp's ...?

    I’m not sure what an anti-tamper screw on a PCP does, is it locktited screws to stop the power adjustment?

    If so, no. You can only change the power by changing or altering the spring (ie heating and clamping it to effectively shorten the spring) plus adding / removing preload washes on the spring guide....

    Don’t worry too much about power, there’s enough, go for smooth, they are , on the face of it, expensive but have a 22 mil Tony Leach kit fitted and you will be a happy bunny for ever :thumb:

    I've had or have most of the popular rifles from both brands. If I could only keep one rifle in the cabinet it would be the Pro Sport.

    ragz18,

    For me, I prefer the full length TX200 over the TX200HC and Prosport.

    For me, the TX200 is a superb rifle, and one I prefer to the HW77/97.

    You may be different, so please have a peek or try of them all :)

    Have fun :)

    Best regards

    Russ
