Major . I think the Hatsan company makes a great gun . I really like the  Dominator 200s  for around 290.00 dollars  They changed the gun  last year .It did shoot 22 cals at around 590 fps and now its gets around 800 pfs  and .177 is now at 1,000 pfs . Its  not over powered  like the 125 sniper or some of the other guns they have . I would not go over the 1,000 fps in a .177 cal  .It has a German barrel ,  2 stage  target trigger , a shock absorbing system for the spring , adjustable cheek pad and a fixed barrel with  under lever cocking . It gets around 1,000 fps in .177 and weighs 9.9 lbs . Its as close to the  tx 200 as you can get in weight ,fps and a fixed barrel  thats made solid  with good parts  but cost half the price . In a aoa review Jock  At 32 yards,  was able to put five .22 Crosman Premiers into a group that measured 7/8 inch edge to edge. That works out to .66 inch center to center. Just take a look at it before you spend 2x what you would  for some of the other guns .  I would stick with the fixed barrel guns , they will have a under lever or side cocking  they are the most accurate and stay away from the break barrels. I’m thinking about getting this gun to use for field target  . I’m trying to gather info on its grouping at 55 yards . If it will group in the one inch range  at 55 yards I think it will work because the smallest opening on a target  at 55 yards is 1.5 inch . They also make a carbine version that weights a little less and it has a threaded end of the barrel  to add a  suppressor to make it supper quite if you want to shoot at night indoors . They also make a 200w that is a wood stock . I don’t understand what the guy in the video is saying but it shows the gun  in wood  https://youtu.be/rR8ZpOepNzk.  http://www.hatsanusa.com/products-page/spring-powered/dominator-200s/.     carbine http://www.hatsanusa.com/products-page/spring-powered/dominator-200s-carbine/.
