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.

Question TX200 mk2 .22 advice please.

    Hi,

    I recently purchased a lovely condition second hand mk2 tx200 in .22. When I stripped and re lubed it I noticed two things that don't seem right.

    1. There is apparently no top hat installed, it does not seem to be just stuck in the piston.

    2. One end of the spring is, in my opinion, not finished correctly. It's not flattened well and certainly not rounded.

    Questions...

    Should all tx200's have a top hat fitted?

    Where can I buy a standard top hat for a full length mk2 .22? (Not sure about delrin)

    Why would my spring have two ends finished differently? I'm thinking someone did a Poor repair job and I'm poised to buy a titan 009 spring.

    any help or advice greatly received.

    thanks.

    Certainly looks like it's supposed to have a top hat judging by the chambers exploded diagram (Google search TW Chambers) and I would suggest you replace the spring with a standard item !...:up:

    A MK2 should have a top hat fitted, the original spring should have about 3 closed coils and are usually finished very well for a factory spring so yours may be a replacement. Get your spares from Bond Gun Accessories. Or visit AAOC and go to bgaltd in the sales section.

    It sounds like the spring is the correct one - 3 closed coils on one end only,as most people ditch the air arms top hat and fit a lighter replacement, i would just go with a delrin one but first i would double check the old one that it is not stuck inside the piston.

    Thanks ,

    I've now bought a direct replacement standard air arms spring. I can also get hold of a front spring guide from a friend too. I've messaged Tinbum and will almost certainly buy the tuning kit from him, but will be thoroughly testing it over a chrono this weekend first to see how it performs.


    Thanks for the replies, they were all helpful to me. :) a great forum indeed.


    Pacman80. :)
