For me it would be the R9 but mainly because the TX is a pain to load left handed . And I just haven’t warmed up to the under lever rifles . I’ve owned two TX rifles and while they were absolutely beautiful …Neither shot as well as what I have read and heard about . For me pretty is as pretty does ..Its possible I had two of the not so good ones , but they were my last AA rifles . I am in no way saying they haven’t earned their reputation. But for me not so much . Just as guys swear by Leapers scopes , and some of these guys I truly trust their opinion . But my personal milage has been different . Never seen a HW break barrel that wouldn’t shoot . Never owned one that wouldn’t out shoot either of my TX rifles . But to be fair I suspect I had two lemons AND both mine were purchased used so no way to know their history . There are FAR too many TX 200 fans for it to be a fluke . Guys like Jonnes and others will probably have a better perspective
