  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.

    Hi as advised i am asking for a for help :-/ is there anyone in or near Birmingham that knows about tx200's or any underlever air rifles? And maybe wouldn't mind taking a look?

    Here my issue apart from being a complete novice, I fired my tx200 HC last night and it smoked (dieseling apparently) and was considerably louder than normal, since then my underlever is popping from its locking position on every shot, looking at it, it looks slightly bent but also looks like there is a tiny grub screw sticking out of the Barrel (where the stock ends) stopping the complete closure (can not tighten) and not sure if it was there before or not. Also there is no sign of a trapped pellet although I haven't stripped it.

    I have only owned it a week and half I bought it second hand and have fired it fine with about 50 pellets, I have not oiled it or any pellets or done anything to the gun apart from fire it.

    I appreciate any help.

    Thanks in advance.

    Hi bud, it's kinda tricky to offer advice without seeing it but I have to say that the TX is one of the easiest rifles to strip and work on. Sounds like there is certainly something creating piston bounce and possibly damaging the internals. Has anyone else been mucking around with it unknown to you perhaps?

    I'd open her up personally, there's plenty of stripdown guides on youtube and you don't need any specialist tools to do it. Might give you a better idea of what's going on with the internals to cause the issues you're describing. As to the bent underlever, I've seen one that bent from being fired in an open position with the anti bear trap disengaged. Wasn't a pretty sight.

    I'm sure someone with a better idea of what's happened will be along, but I'd get into the guts of it myself. Honestly, it's a piece of cake to work on. Scariest part is actually starting on it!

    I'm in Olton mate and yea I was thinking of trying it but I was thinking I've never stripped one before so would I even notice if anything was out of place. If nothing comes of this I will open and have a play, I have watched a few tutorials and read ferret buellers guide onhere and seems sstraight forward enough. Just identifying the problem with no knowledge

    I'm on the other side of Brum otherwise would have a look at it for you. It's an easy rifle to work on, have a go bud and come back on here if you need help.

    No offence to the lads on here but I suggest you join AAOC and ask the same question, apart from being AA fanatics they have a very good tech section, you'll also be able to get any parts from Bond Gun Accessories (aka bgaltd in the sales section) and get a discount on list prices.
    Regards

    That definitely shouldnt be sticking out.. I would remove it and inspect the thread, then try the gun without it - if it works - try and get it back in and out - apply some threadlok and screw it in - if you look here its #56 - If I had mine here Id look at it and confirm, but I do believe this is a grub screw through the shroud to hold the barrel in place - and considering the difficulty in removing the barrel from the shroud due to the loctite used - Id say you could get away with not refitting it if it proves hard to get back in.

    Can you post up a few pics of the areas of concern?

    Can understand the reluctance to take it to bits, but it's a really good rifle to cut your teeth on. Barely any preload on the spring when you drop the rear block out, easily manageable by hand. If things are going "bang", smoking and throwing your underlever back out, I've a feeling it's gonna need stripped at some point regardless... :up:

    "I fired my tx200 HC last night and it smoked (dieseling apparently) and was considerably louder than normal"

    Sounds like you may have dry fired it i.e you fired the gun without a pellet in.

    Yep, I was thinking the same. When I first had my 1st TX200 (.177) there was a couple of occasions when the pellet must have fallen out of the breech after loading. These went un-noticed until the gun was fired...the mix of "Big fingers & thumb and tiny pellets" don't make loading the TX an easy job, particularly when the owner is new to the gun!

    Dunno your home life ditch matey,obviously. Sorry to hear your guns broken.For now.
    If I was you I would have a think towards finding the culprit who did this. WHO HAS KNOWLEDGE 1 you've got it.2where it's kept.3 who would want it broken?? Jealous person.or more likely,somebody weak enough to have tried and failed to get a Sneaky shot in while you were out.,that my man would be the start of it.If it had a been locked ?nobody woulda got at it, sorry if they seemed harsh.but ... Be subtle and sneaky because the point is you can do way more damage to whoever .if they don't know you know,before you serve up that old Sweet dish,best served cold. In the meantime follow the guys` advice..it'll fix.then ..you serve up good old Revenge,for the puddin. SWEET.

    Thanks for all the info and advice guys, the underlever is sitting locked for now just comes out every now and then when fired, I will be taking it apart sometime this week when I know i have a few hours free (extremely busy) I took it to city air weapons yesterday they said leave it with them and Wednesday their repair man would have a look for £85 I said I'll have ago myself then he said he would give me £100 for the gun with it be in broken.... hmmm no thank you.

    As for sabotage i highly doubt it. It's more than likely me being a muppets with fat finger didn't load it properly and didn't notice the pellet fall out.
