Things I liked:The trigger, best on the market hands down. the rifle just overflows with quality, solid feel, very smooth shot cycle.
Things I would have changed:Nothing. some may feel the weight is a bit much, however, this is the trade off for quality.
What others should know:The rifle takes very little time to settle in, ie.. getting rid of excess oils and lubes. Mine was at about 50 shots. This rifle just loves Crosman pellets. I tried JSB,H&N,RWS, and obviously premiers. accuracy great with the 14.3 gr. This rifle is built for accuracy, so it is up to you to make it shine. Poor form, poor results. good form, great results!
Things I liked:Well balanced. Lighter than the RWS air guns that I have. I got the .22 cal.. Accuracy is just as good as RWS if not better. If I am having a good day it is one hole groups. I really like the wood thumb hole stock. Smooth cocking. Mild shooting. Likes most pellets. Accuracy ctc seems to be equal to my Feinwerkbau 300 in .177 with my ability.
Things I would have changed:A little more velocity in the .22 cal. without loss of accuracy if possible. Better adjustable recoil pad.
What others should know:The pictures in the catalog and on the internet show what appears to be two metal plates for adjusting the recoil pad. The silver line in the middle of the recoil pad. Maybe at one time, now it is plastic and doesn't look very durable but it works so far.
Things I liked:Like everyone reading this, I debated 97K, TX200 and A.R. Pro-Sport. With the /97K or KT I like there is no way for the cocking lever to hit the barrel. I like the cocking lever release button. I like the thumbhole stock. The P.S. is the best looking of the three. The walnut stock is incredible I am not a fan of that aluminum cocking lever. Should be ionized steel similar to the side lever of the RWS48. I understand you make me happy and you have a hunter not wanting that extra weight. The TX200 in my mind needs the cocking lever like the 97 with that catch piece designed to prevent the cocking lever from hitting the barrel. Such wonderful airarms blueing with a tiny rubber bumber to protect it.
Things I would have changed:As you can see from above I want the best of 3 worlds. Look of the P.S., walnet stock like Air Arms has, cocking lever and action of the 97, flawless metal-work like the TX. I opted for the 97KT. The price is about $100 on the high side. At least in the USA it comes with a lifetime warranty. Time will tell if it will be there when you need it.
What others should know:I will upload 2 pictures I took of the the 97KT. Of course I would prefer Oak over Beech but I have to say the staining looks beautiful. I have also seen TX200 comments where the owners have stated their Oak stock was rather plain when compared to the online photos. While that is a certaim amount of luck that is one of the issues with online shopping. No way to look before you buy. P.A. sales and service is top notch. I only had to return a bad scope so far. One final note. Since the stock on the KT is not the traditional rifle stock an AR-15 softside case I bought at a local sporting good store who's name starts with a "D" is a perfect fit.
