Things I liked: The Air Arms T200 is a really nice air rifles and the price is right. It is very accurate as I find myself putting several back to back shots in almost the same hole when bench rest shooting. Had several 10 meter targets where I got 9 out of 10 shots into the X ring. The shot that didn’t make it into the X was not the rifles fault. With a 190 bar charge in the air tank you can expect to get 120 shots before having to refill. I don’t have the equipment to test the velocity of the pellet but I didn’t see a real accuracy difference between shot 1 and shot 120. The stock is really nice and I love the target pistol grip type of stock on the T200. I also like the fact that the T200 is built by CZ. I have found over the years that typically CZ firearms have a high quality to price ratio. I like the T200 so much I bought a second one so my son and I could shoot together.
Things I would have changed: The only thing I am not a huge fan of is that the bolt handle, barrel band, and trigger are polymer. More of a nit-picky thing on my part, I am a 1911 kind of guy. Whatever type of polymer that is used it is obviously tough and I doubt it would ever be a problem.
What others should know: The T200 comes set up to use in CMP sporter class 10 meter matches but it also can be set up to use a field rifle with up to 800 FPS velocity. The S200 hunter and T200 target are basically the same except for sights and air settings. The two T200 rifles I have seem to prefer RWS R-10 8.2gr match pellets but the RWS Meisterkugeln 8.2gr professional pellets work very well also. Tried a few other brands of pellets and frankly they all worked well.
Things I liked: My son and I are new to CMP 10m air rifle shooting. We were looking for a CMP sporter class match air rifle. We tried the Daisy M887 & Crosman Challenger rifles and liked them. My son saw an Air Arms S400 in the rental rack and he had to try it. I told him I would look into purchasing one. The S400 turned out to be fairly expensive and it is not in the sporter air rifle class. I ran across the T200 while researching the S400. At half the price, it is on the list of CMP sporter air rifles. On our first rang trip to Camp Perry the T200 turned out to be outstanding. Once sighted in my worst shots were in the nine ring and while using RWS R10 match and H & N Finale match pellets I had five targets with ten shoots all inside the 10 circle. My last target of the night I even got eight out of ten in the center X ring with RWS R10 match pellets. I liked the T200 so much that after I got back from the range I ordered a 2nd one for my son. Ha Ha!
Things I would have changed: The only thing I dislike about the T200 is that the bolt handle is polymer. There are aftermarket bolt handles available but then rifle could not be used for CMP sport class matches if I am reading the rule correctly. I don't thing the bolt handle will break or anything I am just being nit picky.The trigger and barrel band are also polymer but that don't bother me as much.
What others should know: I tried four brands of .177 pellets in the T200 and found that RWS R10 match 8.2gr pellets seemed to be more accurate that the others. Also tried CMP Merlin Match (Vogel), RWS Meisterkugeln 8.2gr, and H&N Finale Match Heavy 8.18gr. I am going to try JSB blue match heavy 8.26gr next.
Things I liked: This rifle in most things is absolute perfection for the money. As expected of CZ the walnut stock is beautiful, and the checking in the grip is very nice. The finish on the receiver is very nice and the bluing on the barrel is deep rich and even. The trigger broke cleanly, though a bit heavier than expected (look in more you should know section for trigger hiccups). The firing cycle is very smooth. My rifle at least from the one session ive fired since I received it is getting 110-115 shots on one fill (190-110 bar), haven't chrono'd it yet to truly see the velocity numbers, which is a very pleasant surprise considering it isnt regulated. I really like the adjustability of the trigger (forward and backward) I've moved it all the way back and my finger sits on the blade perfectly. This gun also has an already installed anchutz type rail in the for end a nice touch I didn't know about that will suit future use perfectly.
Things I would have changed: The rear sight I got with the gun is a bad one I think, I can't zero it and when it finally get close to zero I shoot a group and it's on the other side of the target. Also the extra inserts for the front sight don't fit right and I've had to file the edges down so they will work. The sights sit to low for an effective and consistent cheek weld, you have to force your head down to much to see through the sight. They would work so much better if they sat 1/2"-3/4" higher. Filling: I don't mind that the cylinder had to be removed to fill the gun it's just that to fill from a pump you have to buy a $50 adaptor to do it. Also I have a feeling the brass connector that came with the gun was mis-machined. The little ball bearing in the degasing port Sat to deep and the screw would hold it down to seal the port. I ended up cutting an Allan wrench to "extend" the screw and seal the port. For the cost of the gun you wouldn't think this would happen. Also I would like to see a more detailed description of filling this gun along with fill problems added to troubleshooting, and a better description of trigger adjustment.
What others should know: You're going to get quality right out of the box, it's the same if not better that the CZ 455 varmint that I own. I've only shot RWS Meisterkuglen rifle 8.2gr through it and no conclusive results yet but I'll update when I know. If you want a very smooth first stage, with a crisp light or heavy second stage you will probably have to do some trigger adjustments. Mine had a little problem where the trigger seemed to be caught on something but as you would put pressure on it, it would click then the first stage would be smooth and the second stage crisp, I don't know what caused this but after adjustment it went away. The gun comes with the trigger set at around 3lbs, I was able to adjust it down to 1.75lbs and remain safe. The specifications say loudness is only a 2 but inside a house or a small building I'm going to have to say that it is actually closer to 4. I would recommend ear pro if you will be shooting inside, outdoors you should be fine.
What is the effective range of this rifle beyond its intended function at 10 meters?
My club has three of these, been great rifles - until now. Air cylinder leaks through gauge, blows gauge face off and all air leaks out. Any repairs available for that?
Does this gun come with an adjustable cheek piece?
