Things I liked:Second air rifle ever owned, purchased this with the hopes that the European air rifles were of better quality than the chinese ones. Wow, were the other reviews right. The TX200mk3 is what I wanted when I though of air rifles, beautiful exterior, high precision interior, extremely mild in recoil and report, and accuracy that makes me happier than any firearm to date. The woodwork is excellent, the bluing is awesome, and the feel of it is awesome.
Things I would have changed:I will take this moment to make my one complaint about this rifle. It is heavy, like prepare to work out your shoulders heavy. You will get used to the heft, but out of the box it will take some time. Especially to get your shots to line up with such a heavy rifle from a free standing position. Would I really change the weight? No, the gun performs exactly how I would want it to perform despite its weight.
What others should know:I had purchased a Beeman RS2 dual caliber air rifle from Walmart a few months ago, and was frankly disgusted with the poor quality, poor craftsmanship, and poor accuracy. I ended up returning it after having my brother in law test it out, as he is an old marine who could verify if what I was thinking about this rifle was accurate. Sure enough he says "return it, this ones no good." So I searched the internet high and low for info on the "best" spring air rifle. Basically it comes down to 2 rifles. The TX200mk3 or the HW97/77. I looked at both, but in the end I went with the English one due to the anti bear trap mechanism, and the overall look of the rifle. Ultimately, I look at this like $600 well spent on something I'm gonna enjoy for years to come. Possibly even compete with, but definately go hunting with it. I got the .22, and the force of the pellets blew out the back of the crosman pellet trap, so i know its gonna blow the brains out of whatever animal it hits.
