Help me make a decision please.

Post by chas » 07 Apr 2014, 21:24

I'm sick of getting air bottles filled and all the pratting about associated with PCP's, so I've decided I need a decent springer just for knocking pigeons out of shed roofs.
So far I'm looking at either a TX200 carbine or an HW97K.
What would be your preference and why ????

I would also be happy with the two mentioned above. :thumbup:

Don't know about the tx200 as I've never shot one but I have used the hw and if I were going to get a springer that'd be the one for me , the weight feels right , well made and bang on accurate

I was given a TX200 for zeroing, at 30 yards it was giving a one hole group of 14 mm, so I can say that it is accurate enough for me. That was with using the Falcon Accuracy Plus 5.52 mm.

If can find a tx200sr, that would be a nice rifle, a bit on heavy side comparing to hw97. But really accurate, will get used to weight, no problem.
Hw97 is well balanced, well accurate if fully tuned. Hw97 is my vote.

The HW springers get my vote, Chas, but they would as I have nine of them. Not sure why :crazy:

If you're looking for something in particular, give me a shout. As new synthetic 97k here which would probably do you nicely :thumbup:

thats another one on my list john. i really cant be doing with loading tiny pellets one at a time
my current springer is a bsa goldstar with its nice period 3-9x56 optima super moonighter


chris, i'd have the 97k out of those two. tx is a great gun but i never really found them to "fit" well....obviously thats just my preference like

when asking for advice, please include what n.v device and/or illumination you already have (if any) and what rifles you intend to use them on...cheers

Thanks all for the replies, never heard of that SLR, looks good but can't warrant that sort of money for a few ferals.
I had set my heart on a 97K, but then you start reading up on things as you do and I started to think maybe the AA might be worth a look but it would seem the HW has won the day.
George, Is that synthetic 97K you have nickel plated or blued ? Might well be interested.

Thanks all.
