John – I appreciate the thoughts in your reply. I also appreciate the time to write the response. You make an excellent point about the change in the used market with the influx of cheaper, new guns etc. Having been shooting as an adult for almost 15 years now or longer I remember when things would sell almost within the minute they were posted! Hah! 

I have lowered the .22 to a price that I just do not feel like going any lower. You do make an excellent point that if the right person/situation presents itself then it is a different thought process. 

Truth be told I am looking to trade for a .22 PCP and I already have a single shot .22 that runs on a regulated HPS bottle as well as a very nice AS410 side lever .22 with a single shot tray and a DONNY from FL end piece. Love that rifle. It too has a walnut stock. SO another .22 in HPA? I am looking at getting a lever action rifle. I am a self-admitted junkie when it comes to lever action rifles. But do I NEED one? No sir I do not. 

It is truly a Blessing to be in a position where I am even able to discuss, much less, own the two TX200s! On another forum they general consensus is to keep both rifles and take the walnut off the one I do not shoot as often and even take trigger pack from the “better” of the two and build one really nice TX in .177 then sell the remaining parts etc or just keep the .22

Being a car guy for over 40 years I am all too familiar with taking parts from one project to get another one done. But part of me says that in this case leaving the .22 as is (stock and trigger) and just doing a real good job with a tune would be better. 

When you ask if I can get a “MK” piston in there what are you referring to please? Forgive my ignorance but I don’t know what a MK piston is, unless, you mean a piston from the TX line of rifles such as a prosport or an older MK TX200 before the current version we have now. Please explain – you have me curious.

Thanks again for your thoughts.

~GOD BLESS~
