A favorite among competitive shooters and sportsmen! Whether you're looking for power, accuracy, or excellent fit and finish, the TX200 MkIII has it. It's ideal for anything from competing in local field target matches to hunting.
The TX200 Mk III features a Lothar Walther barrel and a richly finished Monte Carlo stock with a raised cheekpiece and deep, flawless bluing. In addition to the superior fit and finish, the TX200 Mk III features a two-stage trigger and an automatic safety. Loading is via a sliding breech, which is revealed when you cock the underlever. You have to mount a scope since it doesn't come with open sights.
It shoots at 930 fps in .177 and 755 fps in .22. Air Arms products, including the TX200, are known for accuracy in all calibers. Use the guns for hunting (.22 recommended) or field target (.177 only). You don't have to stop there! It's great for plinking, shooting spinners, killing tin cans or popping paper targets. Enjoy the relatively quiet report and moderate recoil from a gun that has a long heritage of accuracy.
Things I liked:Great looking walnut stock, great trigger, accurate with any pellet I tried, lifetime warranty. Things I would have changed:Can't think of anything. What others should know:The first rifle arrived with a damaged stock. Had to RMA it and Pyramyd Air sent me another one with a great looking stock. The second rifle was inspected at no charge before it was sent out. Excellent customer service.
Things I liked:I picked myself up off the floor after opening the box the TX came in (due to how amazing it looked) and then I removed it from the box and was immediately impressed with the build quality and substance of this rifle. Then I shot it some, but couldn't understand why it was rated so highly, UNTIL I had about 100 rounds thru it and it has smoothed out amazingly. It is easily the quietest, smoothest shooting rifle I've ever experienced. Just mind boggling! How can a springer be this nice???? To me, it is now absolutely perfect. I no longer miss my original Webley Patriot I let go a few years ago. Not the same punch, I know. The build quality is even better than the famous Webley however and that's saying something. Great things are never cheap to come by it seems, and this is the perfect example. I see what all the fuss is about now. Well worth the price of admission (and then some). A true VALUE! It even makes me a decent shooter!!!! Things I would have changed:Make walnut stocks standard and keep the price the same?? Not fair, I know!! What others should know:A substantial rifle and that may not appeal to all folks. On the other hand, the heft keeps it from moving around when on target.
Things I liked:Accuracy, quality of workmanship, design, finish, trigger. Things I would have changed:Add a quality bipod made for the under lever design. What others should know:The trigger guard has vibrated loose several times following long shooting sessions.
The rubber bumper on the bottom of the barrel broke off. There is still a little bump but the dimple itself came off. I put a rubber "O" ring on the cocking lever to help cushion the lever when I cock the gun. Is this something I need to send back to get repaired or can I let it go as is?
Paul from USA:
Most every one I've seen has been torn off. Don't worry about you did the most common fix.Now go shoot and have fun.
Tom from USA:
Mine came off also at the second tin of pellets, and I too got an o-ring. Isn't there a better engineering fix ?
R.B. from USA asked:
Once again my thanks to Dan the Man. The more I shoot this rifle, the better I like it. The groups keep getting smaller. The advertised muzzle velocity in .22 is 750 F.P.S. I took my rifle to the range the other day. There was a fellow there with a chronograph. Muzzle velocity range from 657 F.P.S. to 686 F.P.S. I'm shooting Beeman Field Target Special 14.66 grain pellets. I've got under 200 pellets through the rifle. Will the muzzle velocity increase or is my pellet heavier than the factory uses to measure muzzle velocity?
R.B. from USA:
Thanks to Dan & Tyler. I sent an email to Air Arms inquiring about the pellet weight. Their response follows:
"The technical department have advised that we set up on AA field 15.9 g".
Dan the Man from USA:
It might increase a slight bit, but the speed should stabilize more over time. Your accuracy will also increase the more you shoot it.
Tyler from USA:
It may be slightly heavier but that difference is not something to be concerned about. Your velocities seem to be right on for the FTS pellets. If I had to venture a guess, they use a JSB 13 grain exact RS.
R.B. from USA asked:
My thanks to Dan the man for answering my previous question. Is there a way to apply the safety to this rifle after it has been released? This morning I removed the safety to shoot a squirrel. He heard the click and ran off. I noticed the safety will not engage once it has been disengaged. I thought about pulling the cocking lever but was concerned that I may disrupt the timing if I pulled the cocking lever without having the spring tension against it.
Tom from USA:
Easy to reset the safety. The last click of the cock is the safety, just pull the cocking lever back again, no problem, the spring is already loaded. Or, de-cock, pull the cocking lever back and while holding firmly, pull the trigger then the anti-bear trap lock. Caution, any slip here could result in busted knuckles.
Dan the Man from USA:
No problem. As far as the safety, I wouldn't mess with it. Besides, I've heard if you leave a spring piston airgun cocked for more than 10 minutes, you'll damage it.
