I absolutely love my tx200hc rifle, looks gorgeous, especially now I have oiled the stock and has the rowan trigger. It shoots like a dream, smooth, extremely accurate and very little recoil. The only downside is its a little heavy but it's well worth owning. It's my pride and joy! (read more)

I have owned my tx200 hc for about a year now , I bought it second hand from a friend who bought it brand new in 2002 . First of all I'll start with the build quality , this is one of the best built rifle's I've ever handled the stock is beech and has lovely lazer cut checkering on both the fore end and pistol grip and although this rifle is nearly 12 years old still looks stunning. The quality of the blueing is exceptional , it's very deep and even throughout , there are a few scratches but... (read more)

one very smooth accurate rifle.The quality of workman ship is outstanding as is the accuracy that goes with it.The action is so quiet and the built in silencer works well.Its as close to pcp quite that i have come across due to the tuned internals.The trigger is very refind and the factory setting is perfect .As for the weight all good springers are heavy and their is always the option of a sling.Perfect for pest control after shooting 7 rats in 24 hours with minimal disturbance.why didn't...

The TX200Mk11 is a Perfect Field Target Rifle, I use it for Bench rest Target shooting and Pest control using The following Pellets in 5.5mm; Air Arms Diabolo Hunter. Very accurate up to 35MTs, 18mm groups with no wind. RWS Superdome. Very accurate up to 35MTs, 25mm groups in moderate wind. RWS Super-H-Point. Accurate up to 25MTs, 20mm groups with no wind.

Bought this rifle just after Xmas as a pressie to myself having wanted one for years but was'nt prepared for what I got!

The best money I ever spent !! Total quality from muzzle to butt.Mine is a .22 bought for a rabbit problem but I use it for target and squirrel too. Power and accuracy is incredible with top quality pellets,Air arms field 5.51,H & N FTT and I must say that those new fangled Thunderbolt zinc pellets are great too but be careful,those have blown a hole in the back of a steel pellet trap !
Congratulations to Air Arms and thanks for making it in England. (read more)

The TX200 is in my opinion a pure shooting thoroughbred. £300 odd gets you a rifle that is not only beautiful to look at but also very well made. It will keep pace with most of the P.C.Ps that are shot in my club (a good few being 3 or 4 times the price of the TX) as for the weight , yes it's a heavy rifle. but if your poor arms start to ache after a good session with this rifle , i suggest maybe a b.s.a meteor is probably more suited to you. it is a good stable shooting platform . its...

The TX200 MkIII rifle. Mine is .22 calibre. On the downsides, it is no fly weight. At 9lb-odd unscoped and hold sensitive, it is not suitable as a fast-aiming stalking rifle. It has a flimsy-feel to the cocking arm which locks up at a ball detent block under the muzzle. And it has a tendancy to lock-up a bit skewed into the detent. The weight of the rifle too, makes fitting a servicable sling problematic as it can easily pull the cocking lever out and free from the block. With no provision... (read more)

i must agree with the guest review in that this thing is nothning short of a tank it weighs just short of 10lbs unladen a beast of a gun and as for the accuracy yes its great if you can nail it to a fence post and spend two minutes chiseling the underleaver from the housing fumbling about for a pellet then releasing the interminable lever lock which will re lock at every stage until it is re seated in the housing then you will have to re set yourself ready to take a shot meantime every...

I have to strongly disagree with AirArms177's review below. There is a reason Mark Camoccio of Gun Mart rated this rifle so highly..it has broken through into field target and indeed has beaten a good deal of PCP rifles.
The cocking action is easy for anyone of even light average strength, indeed i find it childs play, 9lbs heft isnt that great a deal , but then im ex infantry only having returned to civi street last year in November and so well used to carrying a GPMG around which weighs... (read more)

although a beautiful rifle i found it absolutely useless a hunting anything that isnt slow moving or stationary. its immense weight make it extremely difficult to hold steady for any longer than 3-4 seconds and makes fast target acquisition nigh on impossible because the guns momentum swings it past whatever you're aiming at. aiming this gun up trees is a nightmare, in fact, standing shots in general just get less and less accurate as your rifle saps the energy out of you as the day draws...

As my first underlever, it took a little getting used to, what with the anti-beartrap device on the right side, and I found it a bit fiddly to load until I got the knack, but now I consistently stack lead at 40m. The weapon holds its zero and because of its weight, the recoil is negligible. You just have to get used to lugging it around - get a sling for it, because using one properly in the field really helps with pulling it into your shoulder when standing or kneeling. I find that it... (read more)

You can go get a spring rifle for a third of the price but if you take the time to to check out the Air Arms TX200 MkIII you will see from first glimpse this is no ordinary air rifle. The stock is a work of art, with deep and intricate chequering. The pistol grip is capped off with rosewood too, nice touch. The action is blued to perfection and the cocking is smooth and can be quieter if the beartrap is clamped prior to pulling the cocking arm. This just stops the 3 loud clicks of the... (read more)

Not had my air arms tx200 long, safety catch only works occasionally, considering returning to dealer. After saying that, I have six springers, Tx200 MK111 is my favourite, fits to the shoulder perfectly,the hand grip is wide and chunky ideal for my large hands.

The TX200 is one of the best value for money rifles on the market, it reaks of pure quality right from the bottom of the butt plate through to the tip of the barrel. Very few improvments could be made on this rifle. Granted it is heavy but that adds to the feeling of strength and class. (read more)

As an overall review the Air Arms TX200 MkIII is an expensive rifle but you get what you are paying for, all parts are carefully produced, very high precission and good looking rifle.
It is quite a must for Field Target, the weight gives some extra estability. Incredible precission if you use the right pellet, like H&N Field Target, also the wood is very well finished and design is confortable to be used with scope. (read more)

I bought the Air Arms TX200 MkIII two years ago after an interval in air rifle ownership of 26 years. (I am a fifty year old 'born again')
My previous gun was a BSA Super Airsporter in.22 that I used exclusively for hunting rabbit. (It used to throw a nice consistent pellet)

The one magnum springer to own if you're owning just one. FAC version goes 18 ft. lbs. in .22, yet recoil is very low and shrouded barrel means most of the noise is your target being hit. Smooth and "gas ram-like" without the noise, jump, and high cocking effort.
The new rosewood capped stock in Walnut forced me to take the plunge -- haven't seen a nicer factory stock anywhere. The build quality, firing experience, and one-holer accuracy put other spring guns at this power level to... (read more)
