Things I liked:

I like the build quality of the gun, above all. Everything is done right. This is the kind of rifle you'll be proud to own for the rest of your life. It's the most accurate spring gun below $3,000. There are so many refinements in the trigger, the bedding, the barrel and breech, that I could write all day long about this rifle! In fact, you can read my TX200 article on this website.

Things I would have changed:

Nothing!

What others should know:

This is an underlever and therefore has limited access to the breech. People with very large hands may find it difficult to load until they develop a technique. The gun has 3 holes for a vertical scope stop pin, so buy scope mounts with a stop pin. Find the one best pellet, and use it exclusively. I've found both Beeman Kodiaks and 10.3-grain JSB Exacts to be equally accurate in my TX. I would scope this gun with a Bushnell 6-18x40 Trophy or a Leapers 3-12x44 AO SWAT Mini-Size scope.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent fit and finish.

    Things I would have changed:

    The finish on the mating faces of the trigger sears and compression tube are terrible. Air Arms should go back to their original machining practices and rectify the current shotty work.

    What others should know:

    Air Arms quality regarding the TX200 is not what it used to be.

    Things I liked:

    Got Lucky with my purchase. i have been reading the bad experiences people have been having with the order of this refurbished rifle. I was dreading that I might experience the same disapointment that some of you had. The gun I purchased was very dusty but nothing that a good clean up could do. I clened out the barrel then did a complete wipe down and clean of the rifle. Next I inspected the entire stock and removed it. The only flaw I could find was a tiny blemish in the blued barrel that was barely noticicable. Then I checked the safety operation and decocking to make sure my gun was sound. Everything worked perfectly. Then I loaded the rifle and took my first shot. Oh..My..gosh! This gun is an amazing shooter. The shot cycle is quick and kicks just a little. The gun moves straight back provided you have a proper artillery hold and have the gun on its balance point. The trigger is out of this world and I had no need to adjust it. The pull felt around a pound.

    Things I would have changed:

    I wouldnt change anything. I paid a lot of money for a refurbished rifle but every penny spent was worth it.

    What others should know:

    I am shot many springers in this gun has jumped up to my top three. my big three are hw97K, hw95L, and this gun. If you are looking for a world class springer consider this one.

    Things I liked:

    Appearance, build quality and street appeal, five plus stars.

    Things I would have changed:

    Offer a fully tuned version with the finest tuning components regardless of cost. The TX 200 MK III is good enough to make the best use of a complete quality tune job.

    What others should know:

    I found that the version I purchased is very hold sensitive. Walnut in .22 new not refurbished. I also after shooting a tin of pellets, Crossman Premiers, decided to add a Vortek tune kit. This one easy change turned a good shooting airgun into an absolute tack driver. By smoothing out the shot cycle it decreased the hold sensitivity and made the airgun easier to shoot from less than ideal shooting positions. As many do I can highly recommend an Air Arms TX 200 MK III. As it comes from Air Arms I do not think it is perfect but with a small amount of effort it does come close.

    Things I liked:

    Beautiful blue chrome finish that can't be seen on the pictures. Excellent trigger and very easy to shoot accurately. Build quality seems good.

    Things I would have changed:

    I would increase the power by 200 fps. I make the rifle lighter, add adjustable stock extensions. Seems to short.

    What others should know:

    I turned in a Diana 460 magnum and was very lucky to get this refurbished rifle with just a couple of nicks on it and an over adjusted trigger which was way too light. I was able to readjust the trigger and it shoots perfectly now. I compared the gun to the ones I have, Gamo magnum, Whisper Swarm, Hatsan 105,125,155,Diana 460. I still prefer the Hatsan 155 after learning how to shoot this beast accurately.

    Things I liked:

    The blue chrome looks beautiful which can't be seen on the pictures. The adjustable trigger is perfect and overall build is good.

    Things I would have changed:

    The rifle is very heavy for a short rifle and power seems a little weak so I hope they could increase it by 200fps.

    What others should know:

    I purchased this refurbished one which replaced a refurbished Diana 460 magnum which fell apart on me. The Diana was great except for build quality(poor). I compared this gun with some of the guns I have like a Gamo Magnum,aWhisper Swarm, Hatsan 125,155 torpedo, and have come to a conclusions that my Hatsan 155 is my favorite.

    Things I liked:

    Ive changed my outlook on the TX200 , It is a great looking rifle with a very good trigger and the bluing is superb.

    Things I would have changed:

    Safety is bad, cocking lever need as I said in my last review the same feature as the carbine. after having the rifle one day. I'll explain below.

    What others should know:

    I was very upset upon arrival of my gun with the poor packaging and a box with 7 what looked like 7- 22 caliber holes in it. having the rifle only one day and all those issues that came up. Anyway I was anxious to try it out and failed to check it over good like I normally would, I did not check the screws, I mounted my scope and stated to fire away. The safety took 10 shots and pulling the cocking lever very hard to engage. after approximatley 25 shots I cleaned the barrel and was wiping it down with oil when I first noticed the crack in the stock at the rear of the action above the grip. I was now really upset. I cannot honestly say if it arrived like this or it happened while shooting. It was a refurbished rifle that I purchased with tax over $700, Wish now I would of bought a new one. However PA has always been very helpful and has fixed problems that occurred before. I just hope they will help me now, I really don't want a refund ,just another rifle or different stock.

    Things I liked:

    Nice looking rifle ,ok trigger and finish is ok.

    Things I would have changed:

    Fix the cheap safety that does not function 50% of the time, cocking lever is narrow for big hands. Needs the same device added as the carbine.

    What others should know:

    I purchased mine and received it on March 5th, had issues right away with the safety. This is my first refurbished air gun and for spending with tax over $700 Im really disappointed. I assumed the gun was broken in since it was a used gun, The box it came in was all beat up with seven 22 cal holes in it. The packing was nothing ,two rolled up pieces of wrapping paper and was very loose inside the shipping box. I unpacked it and decided to mount my glass on it. After 25 shots I decided it was enough for the day, accuracy was ok. I then cleaned the barrel took 19 patches . I then was applying oil to all the metal parts when my clothe caught on something near the tang. I looked closer and could see the stock had a crack in it. I learned a lesson, buy new. Im hoping PA will do something for me, even replacing the stock will be fine, I'll see on Monday as there closed on Saturday. They have always in the past been good to deal with but I never bought a refurbished gun before.

    Things I liked:

    The TX 200 is a good looking rifle, excellent bluing, good trigger.

    Things I would have changed:

    Cocking is easy but needs something at the end of cocking lever to help the hold and keeping your hand from slipping off as mine did. Like what's on the carbine model.

    What others should know:

    Mine was a refurbished gun that looked to be in new condition . I just received it today.The packing was terrible and the shipping box had 2 little bundles of paper as packing causing the gun to bounce around and the factory box had 7 -22 caliber holes in it. no manual but I was able to down load it. Since this was a refurbished rifle I assumed it was broken in. But I tried 6 different pellets with just ok results. My Weihrauch 97K is a lot more accurate, I cleaned the barrel and it did shoot alittle better ,the best was with JSB 14.35 gr. My rating of only 3 stars was based on these results. Hopefully this will get better results the more i shoot it. I might add a tuning kit if I could find one, out of stock. I now know why.

    Things I liked:

    Absolutely beautiful rifle. The bluing is superb. The Walnut stock is very nice looking. But looks aside.......this is a very accurate rifle. It has won so many shooting titles and it is little wonder why. It is a world class springer.

    Things I would have changed:

    Nothing I can think of.

    What others should know:

    Understand that the shot cycle of any springer can be improved with an aftermarket spring kit. There are no exceptions to this. I have shot spring guns for years and this always holds true.

    Things I liked:

    Trigger is excellent and I am use to 2oz. triggers in center fire bench rest rifles. Stock fit and appearance is very good as is the bluing.

    Things I would have changed:

    Stock finish is very dry. While I like a satin finish, this while very smooth appears to almost have no finish. A minor thing I will change.

    What others should know:

    This is my first Springer and have only been able to shoot it once, at 25 yards due to poor weather conditions. I had a run of 6 shoots that looked like one before the wind came.I will learn how to shoot ]it this winter as I found an indoor range 10 min from my house. At this point I am impressed.

    Things I liked:

    Excellent design and execution, very ergonomic Monte Carlo stock with a nice high cheek relief with a custom feel. Good power and the accuracy is definitely there! I got the walnut stock (nicely done) and the fittings are top notch. Smooth firing cycle. A bit heavy but I feel that it would not as accurate if it wasnt as heavy. I have both the .22 and the .177 caliber. Looks to be easily to be worked on. Good bluing work. Average noise level. Seems to be not pellet sensitive as some airguns I own.

    Things I would have changed:

    The walnut stock was a bit dry and it didnt really have a full finish on it, just slightly oiled. I am using Balistol on it for now and its fine!

    What others should know:

    Definitely worth the money for the craftsmanship and materials used. I have a number of different airguns and this might be better than the well known German brand which I own quite a few of. Time will tell if it will hold up as well, but I feel that it be functional for many years.

    Things I liked:

    The TX200 is pretty much as advertised. A very enjoyable rifle to shoot and spend time with.

    Things I would have changed:

    For as much money as it costs, and as long as it took to get, you would think they would get the stain on the stock even. The corners on mine are white. Also, the automatic safety rarely activates, so that when it does, it ruins your off hand shots.

    What others should know:

    Check the stock screws when you get yours. Don't crush them when you tighten them, but it is MUCH more accurate when the stock screws are tight.

    Things I liked:

    Don't tell my wife . . . We've been married for 51 years now and I think I've fallen in love again . . . but this time with my new Air Arms TX200. I love stroking it's beautiful walnut wood. The linseed oil and wax makes her shine. She's quiet, but watch out . . . she snaps pretty hard when she's cocked, but not too hard. Just don't get your finger caught in her breach like I did. Ouch, but that hurt! The bruising is almost gone now and I've learned not to stick my fingers where they don't belong. This girl is meant to be treated with care and I'm looking forward to a long, long relationship.

    Things I would have changed:

    It's a bit difficult to look for change in perfection although I might look for change in the location of the beartrap release. I find its current location to be a bit awkward, but I suppose that I'll get used to it.

    What others should know:

    The deep shine of the bluing and the beauty the walnut wood is incredible on this gun. I love my other rifles, but this one is for me to keep and pass along to my sons and grandsons. I've put a Hawke Airmax SF 30 3-16 x 50 AO scope on this TX200 and I've go it zeroed in at 50 yards so far. I can't pound tacks just yet, but I'll get there. Actually, my wife doesn't mind my having an affair with an air rifle, it gets me out of the house.

    Things I liked:

    Yah, yeah, yeah, ...what everybody else just said. This is the best springer out there. The TX200 is peerless when it comes to quality. Normally we think of Germany being the world leaders for high quality guns, but the TX200's quality exceeds all my high end German air guns, hands down. The trigger is amazing right out of the box, and I am very hard to please in this area. Most agree the price is too high, but to put this into perspective, I paid a lot more (close to $1,k) for my Beeman R1 .177 back in the early Eighties, and it does not compare in any way to the TX200. It is definitely worth the money to right people, fortunately I am one of them! I want to add that really like the walnut stock, to me it is worth the extra money. After all, if I'm going to buy a Rolls Royce I'm not going to settle for the cheap options, I'm going for the deluxe model! This air rifle is as much a work of art as it is a match-grade shooter. If you don't care about the finish and stock, get an HK97.

    Things I would have changed:

    There is only one complaint with this otherwise perfect air rifle: The small rubber bumper for protecting the cocking handle from contacting the barrel is a very poor design, that was very poorly executed. The very first time I cocked the rifle, my fingernail caught it and pulled it half way out. I could not get it to seat again regardless of how hard I tried to reinstall it. I finally pulled it out completely (quite effortless) to see what was wrong. When the bumper is new it has a small rubber shaft on the end that is threaded into a threaded small hole in the bottom of the barrel. But installing it deforms the stem and it cannot be re-threaded back into the hole once it is even partially removed. To remedy this I threaded a small set-screw into the barrel hole to plug it, and installed two O-rings into the two groves at the end of the cocking handle (like the Walther LGU). This is a great working solution and looks better than a small rubber bumper seemingly stuck into the barrel.

    What others should know:

    The TX200 does not seem to be hold-sensitive, it always hits the mark whether I use my palm artillery hold, or a sand bag rest, or a rubber yoke on a shooting stick. It doesn't care, it just puts the pellet on the mark every time. How refreshing! I can literally point and shoot. The down side of this is it will make me lazy when I shoot my my other springers! I have already figured out how I will deal with this issue. I'll sell all my other springers. Problem solved! The walnut stock (by Minelli) comes with a flat oil finish which is just beautiful. However I wanted a bit more depth to show off the figure in the grain, so I treated it with high quality furniture oil. What a difference that made. With a little effort I was able to obtain a gorgeous hand-rubbed oil finish that is timeless and stunning. This is a keepsake and an heirloom, and to me it's bargain for the price. My wife however in as convinced as I am! Maybe in time she will come around. If not there's the divorce option.
