“Amazing ”

Written on: 04/03/2014 by adiw32 (1 review written)

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 Full Review

“Awsome spring powered rifle”

Written on: 23/12/2013 by Rabbitslayer (1 review written)

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 Full Review

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 i… Read Full Review

Bought this rifle just after Xmas as a pressie to myself having wanted one for years but was'nt prepared for what I got! What I thought I'd bought was a top notch fixed barrel underlever rifle made by one of the most respected companies in the trade which in part is true as the rifle is a top quality product and fit and finish is flawless and… Read Full Review

Written on: 10/03/2011

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 Full Review

Written on: 18/11/2010

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 heavy… Read Full Review

having read the negative reviews of this rifle i wonder if these people know what there talking about.i own a mk111 177 hc and all ican say is this rifle is just pure class it is as accurate as my brothers s400 at 35 yards and as for the build quality its supurb.i have owned diana,hw97k and they are are not a patch on this.i do find the rifle on the heavy side but like the other reviews this helps with accuracy and absorbs recoil which is hardly any.if you want a good hunting rifle this is the… Read Full Review

“The TX200 MkIII rifle. Mine is .22 calibre. On the...”

Written on: 21/10/2010 by simona050 (4 reviews written)

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 for… Read Full Review

Geoff M's Response to simona050's Review

Written on: 25/02/2011

I found this review not helpful because...every thing he said about this rifle is wrong,it has a very good sturdy feel to it i have never had any problems with cocking it, He must be doing it wrong.It is by far the best spring rifle money can buy bar a custom job.

Simona050's reply to Geoff M's Comment

Written on: 11/10/2013

So, Geoff M, this means I was wrong about it being a superbly accurate, smooth shooting, delightful handling rifle? I wrote my review based on pure experience of owning and shooting a TX200 .22 standard length rifle for over ten years. The underlever never located straight back into the detent unless you carefully guide it back. It is better on the HC carbine version however which I still own and shoot with. I have since sold my TX200 rifle to fund an HW97K. Just as accurate as any TX200 with a better lock-up in my view.

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 quarray… Read Full Review

Written on: 26/07/2010

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 well… Read Full Review

Written on: 21/10/2010

I agree with this review up to a point but it is not written from the point of view of an actual owner's experiences, rather a series of quotes from a published reviewer, tended by an enthusiastic author who is about to take delivery of one. I've owned both TX200 .22 rifle and a TX200HC .177 MkIIIs for ten years and I love them but they do have downsides which have to understood and compromised to get the best out of them.

Written on: 08/07/2010 by airarms177 (2 reviews written)

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 on. i… Read Full Review

Dannzz's Response to airarms177's Review

Written on: 24/08/2010

What a load of nonsense, the weight adds to the rifles accuracy by controlling the recoil. Who shoots at running targets any way? Surely a very cruel proposition if you can't guarantee a clean kill! I don't have any problem at all with aiming or holding this rifle, sure it's heavy but if you take it out in the field buy fit a sling doh! Beaten by an SMK 19 I don't think so, is this guy for real? Trust all the other rave reviews here & every where else on the net regarding this excellent rifle & ignore this one it's utter C**P!

Written on: 13/03/2010

Wow, what a rifle! Owned tx200 .177 walnut now for 1 year, beautiful rifle but true beauty is in the fact that whatever I aim it at....HIT! Pellet after pellet almost one on top of another. Little ragged holes out to 45 yards...my longest shot on property measures with Leica laser rangefinder. JSB domes...light ones,,,just beautiful!!
Handling/loading takes a little getting used to but now second nature. Heavy with Leapers 8X24 scope but OOOOOoooo so stable shooting platform....get one before… Read Full Review

Written on: 13/11/2009

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 shoots… Read Full Review

I have an Air Arms .22 TX200 hc and have been using this for nearly 2 years.
overall i have found this model to be an excellent target rifle, although quite heavy it is also a very good hunting rifle, that is if you have the stamina to carry it around for a number of hours.
I`am currently using a nikko sterling 4-12X50 mount master scope and air arms diabolo field pellets, I can honestly say that these pellets are really the only pellets that give consistently good results, although Bisley… Read Full Review
