Things I liked:Quality, quality, quality. Fit and finish are excellent. Trigger is second to none. Very little if any adjustment needed to fine tune the trigger to an individuals taste. Breaks in exactly the same spot each time, so your shots go where you want them. I like the large breech opening making loading easier than on some underlever rifles.
Things I would have changed:Maybe an anti-bear trap mechanism as a safety on the cocking system. Perhaps something more in the spring guide to deal with the little bit of "spring twang" at the end of the shot cycle. The tx200 has done something like this and you cannot feel the "spring twang" at the end of the cycle on it at all. It doesn't seem to affect accuracy at all, but it would be nice.
What others should know:After reading many, many articles, review, reports seeing videos comparing the tx200 to the hw97k, I had to see for myself.So, I now have both. I can tell you, either of these rifles will put your pellets in tight little groups of 1/4" at 40 yards. It is not uncommon to put 2 and sometimes 3 through the same hole. It is all up to the shooter and how well you can hold your aim point. I have heard it said that the tx200 is the more attractive of the two, but this is a little misleading. The hw97k is a beautiful piece of craftsmanship in it's own right. The workmanship and materials are first rate and the finished product makes this obvious once you pick it up the first time. The HW97k is a high precision tool that will not disappoint.
Things I liked:well balanced German airgun even when mounted 3x12 50mm scope with UTG drooper scope mount (only very slight compensation needed*); Not too heavy an airgun with smooth action mechanics and accuracy within 200 JSB Match 13.73gr pellets(5mm);stock permits anatomic cheek weld; adequate loading port with ambidexterity;German build and quality;
Things I would have changed:stock's checkering could be MORE distinct to its look and feel; would pay extra $$ for a walnut stock offering; torx or hex fasteners could be more up-to-date;
What others should know:any spring twang and internal vibrations appear minimized after only 200 JSB pellets; beautified and protected stock finish with soft paste wax; Rekord trigger pull force easily adjustable; slight moly at ball detent for smoother underlever mechanics;
Things I liked:This is an excellent under lever airgun! I purchased in .20 and mounted a Leapers 3-12x44 AO SWAT Accushot Rifle Scope, EZ-TAP, Illuminated Mil-Dot Reticle, 1/4 MOA, 30mm Tube, See-Thru Weaver Rings using aUTG Drooper Scope Rail, 11mm-to-Weaver Adapter mount. It only took four 3 shot groups @ 15 yards to get it zeroed with one hole accuracy. At best, I am an average shooter, or perhaps average for 65 yrs old would be more accurate. I prefer this rifle to the TX200 MKIII because for me it is more accurate and much easier to load with the bigger loading port. Although the TX200 MKIII with the walnut stock is a work of art in the appearance category and is almost unfair to compare it to the HW97K. Albeit that looks are subjective and the HW97K is actually a thing of beauty. To me the HW97 is light and fairy easy to cock at least when compared to an RWS 48.
Things I would have changed:Nothing! This rifle is better than what I was expecting and my expectations were pretty high.
What others should know:On the chronograph I was getting an average of 760 fps using H&N Field Target Trophy .20 Cal, 11.42 Grains, Domed pellets. That was done straight from the box with no break in period. If you buy this gun you will have no regrets. It is outstanding.
