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/.
