    The post below is of my TX200. I had to have help to get it posted here.   I think she is a BEAUTY!    My Cooper JSR used to be my favorite rifle, but I might have a change  of heart.      I have more fun with the TX, than any other rifle I own.   gamyrick, thank you.

    MRJOHNS POST FROM AIRGUNONE.

    This is the rifle I bought from MARKSMAN3006. He took very good care of it. I cant believe how accurate it is. My best 30 yd 5 shot group is .161 and the best 50 yd group is .628. There was absolutely ZERO wind the day I shot these two groups. It is a little hold sensitive, but i’m starting to get the hang of it. The weather is so hot and humid here, that i’m not shooting very much. At 67 years old, the heat is a little hard on this old man. I need to set up a target outside my window and shoot through it. I bet the wife would love that (Ha). I can say enough kind words about MARKSMAN 3006, on the sale of this rifle. He went out of his way to make me happy. His packaging of the rifle was top notch, and he sent the rifle the next morning, after the sale. He told me he wouldn’t touch the money I sent to his Paypal account, until I was completely satisfied.

    The stock looks like it has some bad streaks in the wood? ;) Looks like I should have got that one from marksman and did think about it but already have one tx200. Very very nice looking wood!

    Thanks for the compliments on the stock. I was lucky to get this rifle from MARKSMAN3006. He is a great member, who I consider to be a friend.

    Thanks John. It makes me happy that you are happy. It is a very good gun. I never mentioned this…….but I did hand rub that stock with steel wool and apply several coats of polish to bring out that pattern. That stock was not that dark when I got it. Hope you enjoy.

    Congrats,  that is a very nice looking piece of kit!  The TX is a standard that is hard to match.  I personally enjoy the short stroke models of days gone by but they are all good sprigers.

    My TX200 is very accurate when I hold it the right way. I still need a lot of practice with it. If I hold to tight to the shoulder it goes low and if I hold barely touching the shoulder it goes high. This is only noticed if i’m shooting 50 yards or more. When shooting 30 yards it doesn’t seem to matter that much.
    This rifle is at the top of my havin’ fun list.

    I put a new scope on my TX200 today and at 35 yards it shoots good enough to get boring. I’ll put it on my bench in the next few days and set it up at 50 yards again.
    One thing I have to do with mine is tighten the stock screws before a shooting session. Loctite doesn’t seem to keep that from happening. One funny thing happened today while I was shooting an assortment of 177 and 22 air rifles. I decided to get out my 2260 co2 out and shoot it some. It wouldn’t hit a 2ft square box? This rifle will hit all pellets in a one inch square at 35 yards. So put a new co2 cartridge in it and still couldn’t hit anything……………you don’t have to be smart to miss a target putting 177 pellets in a 22 bolt action ;)

    Goodtogo,
    If you live in a dry climate, the stock will shrink. I experienced this with both of my TX200(s). The first was in Pueblo during the summer (+107F) and the 2nd stock shrank in northern Maine during the winter (-20F). Both of these climates were exceedingly dry. I had cleaned the screws, applied the loctite and then tightened the screws. I did NO shooting and a week later the action was loose but the screws were loctited in place. Once the stock settled, I cleaned the screws, applied loctite and then tightened the screws again and the action has remained tight.
