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.

  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.

Tx200hc Finally Done Fettling For Now

    This is the third TX200 I have had over the years

    I had a mk2 and loved it but like a fool sold it, later I had a mk3 .22 but never really got I’m on with the caliber

    now I have another mk3 .177 in walnut
    But decided to go with mk2 spec stroke

    So it’s now running a mk2 spec piston with new bearings and a Vortek piston seal

    I tried to use the mk3 spring and guides but ended up with too much dead preload to make decent power,

    I have then swapped that for a TBT maxi kit which I believe uses a Weihrauch export spring and guides to match, I had to collapse and cut a coil to get it to 11.3 with no preload washers and using jsb exacts

    I am extremely happy with the results and firing cycle, just done a chrony string but it needs to bed in but regardless it has a variation of 8fps already.

    absolutely loving it now and need to do some pellet testing but seems to like jsb 4.51’s and crosman premiers (boxed)

    How are you finding the ABT now? Is it just the last notch it won't make?

    it catches on the first latch, I never let go of the cocking handle regardless but the bear trap still works, also sounds better as you don’t get the ratchet noise, just one click

    it was cheaper and easier to buy the TBT maxi kit, then adjust the spring without preload washers, using a mk2 spring might have needed preload washers

    Good to hear the Mk2 piston goes well with the shorter HC barrel. Note original steel top hats have been discarded. Longevity of spring should be enhanced with absence of extended top hat and stack of power washers. Will be doing similar myself, but undecided if to go for the full 46 mm Mk2 extension or compromise somewhere between the 31 - 46 mm.

    I thought about this too, I like the mk2 set up personally as it was pretty much set up for uk power levels.

    my other thought was to use a Walther lgv piston with a hw 25mm seal but that’s slightly shorter and with a heavier piston

    Nice stock..
    I find the Grain on most TX200s a little uninspiring..
