I have pretty much been shooting TX200s of some iteration for a few years now and really liking it. I have four of them now. Started with the Mk2 a few years back, but did not shoot it a lot. It is the second one down, topped with an AirMax 4-16.

I had been trying to talk a friend into selling me his TX200SR Mk2 for years without success, then I spotted one on the classified ads in the US and I happened to know the seller. I contacted him and he offered me a great deal on an unmolested/ unmodified TX200SR Mk1. So I picked up my first SR, the one at the top of the pic and it wears a Sightron 10-50.

The friend I wanted to by the Mk2 SR from had traded it for a scope to another friend of mine. So I made it clear that if he wanted to sell it, I wanted first crack at it. A number of years later, I was able to pick up the SR Mk2 in a nice match stock, the third rifle down. It happens to be a left handed action in a right handed stock, which works very well for loading with my left hand rather than reaching around with my right. It is topped with a very rare Premier modified Leupold MK4 fixed 35X.

I have been wanting a carbine, so when one became available at AGS, I snapped it up, the one at the bottom with a beech stock. I have a walnut stock you can see at the side of the pic. It was shooting hot when I bought it and I have installed a Tony L. 22mm kit in it and it feels like a different rifle; very quick, mild firing cycle. It has a Bushnell 6500 4-16 mounted and I am just in the process of sighting it in. Early results are extremely promising. Will be keeping an eye out for a match stock for it.

I hope I can get a good sibling rivalry going between these guns. All the guns have RWS bullseye mounts that have been modified by Hector Medina to take all of the extra movement out of them.

I bought the kit with the rod from Tony. It was just under $250 including delivery. I have not put it over the chrony since I put the kit in, but with one spacer, it was shooting the JSB 8.44 at about 770. That is what I am hoping for when it is all broken in. That may have changed and after I put a couple of hundred more pellets through it, I will check again. Quick, mild thud is all you get. Lots of spacers provided, so it can be tuned to just about anything you want. 12 ft/lb and under is the ideal.

Any reason for wanting to replace the pg3?

I was looking to pick up one of those for mine, though it still fires great stock.

Also that's a great collection op! Those who like them, like them a lot! Haha

Which SR do you have, JAG1, the Mk1 or Mk2? The Mk2 has the bear trap, but the accuracy of the guns is pretty much equal.

Still getting use to the HC, but early sign are extremely encouraging.

A lot of people complain about the cocking force required and the SR guns certainly are the hardest. I am 71 and I have no trouble over a 60 shot match plus maybe 20 sighters. I cock the gun while it is still on my knee using my left hand. I can honestly say I have never noticed any fatigue in my arm/arms from loading the gun. Practicing in my yard, I will often shoot well over 100 shots and quit due to time constraints, not due to fatigue. The HC is somewhere between the full sized Mk3 and the SR in effort, so for me, it seems very easy.

Do agree that they are super nice guns.

I will never sell my Sr period :). Unless maybe a 22 comes my way

I learn every time I shoot the guns. Never going to completely master the guns, but the learning is what I look forward to and enjoy the most.
