When I started shooting field target in 2006, I found myself trying out various airguns. At that time my budget was limited, so spring piston airguns were at the top of my list. After testing and tinking with various rifles, I finally settled on an Air Arms TX200. I shot that gun for a while and still own it today.
One of the things I found when I started shooting my TX200 in competition was that it’s accuracy was incredible. I actually shot some matches and ended with the overall high match score shooting my TX200, even over the PCP shooters. That’s a great testament to this gun’s capabilities.
The next thing I enjoyed about shooting my TX200 in competition was it’s forgiveness of my sometimes cumbersome hold. Once you shoot spring piston guns for a while you will find that most, if not all are somewhat hold sensitive. Some are more affected by the pressure you use to hold the gun when you are shooing. I found that my TX200 was less hold sensitive than other spring piston guns I had previously owned. This is a very important attribute when shooting competitions.
Now you may ask the big question… what about the trigger? Well, that’s just where I was about to go with this article. The TX200 has a fully adjustable, match grade trigger system. It can be adjusted to suite your preference. Whether you like a firm single stage trigger or a light two stage trigger, it doesn’t matter as the TX200 can be adjusted to your liking. I found that with minimum effort I could precisely adjust my trigger to a very fine match grade feel. The Air Arms TX200 is nothing short of an incredible spring piston gun.
