I replaced my Weihrauch HW50 with this rifle and I am extremely impressed! Weihrauch makes a damn fine rifle, so I was somewhat sad to see it go, that is until my TX200HC arrived.
The TX200HC is built to old world standards. This is something that was obviously designed, assembled and finished by people who actually care about their company's name.
The walnut stock is well selected and finished, the grain has nice character and the fish checkering adds a nice touch of class as well. The bluing on the rifle is very deep and well finished. If you have shot a Weihrauch you know the Rekord trigger is fantastic. I hate to say it, but the TX200's trigger is even lighter and crisper than the Rekord trigger. The barrels are made by Walther Lothar in Germany and are renowned as some of the finest barrels in the world. It is a somewhat loud rifle in it's carbine form but I really don't care. Pointing the rifle lets you know it is a born and bred hunter and one-hole groups at twenty-five yards are the norm. The shot cycle on this springer even when it's new is very subtle, you will forget that you are not shooting a PCP airgun.
Some people have complained the TX200 is too heavy or too hard to cock. I have found neither to be true. Anyone in half decent shape shouldn't have trouble.
My only complaint about the TX200HC would be that it is such a fine piece of work that you may fret bringing it into the field for fear of scuffing or marking it. Buy this rifle, keep it oiled and own it for the rest of your life. Pass it on to your kids as an heirloom.
