  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 Trigger position

    Hi,
    I have just bought a TX200 mk3 and absolutely love it. The only issue i have is that with the trigger being set back, my finger is in a slightly strange position on it if i have my hand in a comfortable firing position. The trigger is to the right on the pad of my finger, not central.
    The position isn't THAT far off, and as I'm new to the rifle (and fairly new to shooting anything decent) I can't really tell if its affecting accuracy at all. However when I fire my finger kind of curls up meaning i may be pulling shots off.

    I Haven't tried adjusting the trigger yet as I am very happy with it otherwise and don't want to ruin it (but would like to decrease length of 1st stage at some point). So the questions are:
    1. Would decreasing the first stage actually move the trigger blade itself forward at all?
    2. Should i be looking at other options to change the length of pull, maybe a trigger shoe or extra butt pad? Bearing in mind the stock and everything fit great.
    3. Should i just spend some time getting used to the gun, trying different hand positions etc and then adjust it as much as possible?
    4. The gun is used for casual target shooting from whatever position i fancy, though often rested on a table sitting down. I am starting to take up hft as well. Luckily the trigger position is much better when I am kneeling/standing, but would like to be able to sit as well. perhaps i just need to adapt my sitting position?

    Did any of you tall people have this same issue? If so what did you do? Would rather not be replacing trigger units etc at this point.
    Thanks!

    David, I would suggest spending a bit of time with it. Mine took me a bit of getting used to but I left it as stock and havent adjusted it and it now feel very natural, more so than the trigger on my HW100 which is excellent.
    personal experience makes me shy away from adjusting the trigger too much unless its really sloppy and neither the rekord or the CD trigger systems are poor out of the box.

    The first thing that I did when I bought TX was to buy a Rowan adjustable butt pad and trigger. This allows you to customise the hold and trigger to your specific requirements.

    Great thanks for the advice, Ill give it some more time as is, then try adjusting and then if i still can't get comfy look at upgrading. Just don't want to spend money straight away on what to me is a very expensive rifle!

    On a slightly different note, how do people generally have their triggers set up for target/hft. I would have thought very short first stage, crisp second and very light pull. Is there any application for having a long first stage?

    I think most guns ship with a long first stage. The longer the first stage is the farther you have to move the trigger before the gun fires. I think it's just a bit of added safety. Once folks become familiar with the TX trigger they start to adjust it to their preference. The starting point of the trigger is fixed because the blade rests against a small pin to stop it moving forward. You can bring the let off point a little forward, but that's about it unless you go with the Rowan unit.

    Put up with mine for a few months and thought I had mastered it but what an improvement when the Rowan trigger and then a Bisley butt pad were fitted. Possibly may not improve anything for you but worth asking around if anyone has a TX with both that you could try.
