Many have had pretty good success with the Vortec kit that allows you to get anywhere from sub 12 ft/lb up to 15 ft/lb with spacers. I have my 20 cal TX tuned to about 650 fps or just under 13.5 ft/lb, using a Vortec kit. It shoots smooth and remained accurate.

One of the dealers on the forum carries them and may chime in with some details.

My new 97KT Synthetic chronographs just over 12ft-lb with H&N 8.49grain FT pellets. It is a lot of precision (and weight) for the money. I think my only heavier rifle is a bull barreled varmint rifle. If I was hunting instead of FT, I wouldn't buy the thumbhole stock again as it's awkward disengaging the safety. The synthetic stock doesn't come with the adjustable buttpad found on the wooden stock versions and it is a chore to fit one as the buttstock, while substantial and very solid feeling, is actually hollow. I really like the look of the blue laminate stock and if both had been available for me to handle before buying, I likely would have gone for the non-thumbhole laminate.

Hi Guys

I've been wondering
The HW97 is a much lighter gun than my TX200. This gun is heavy, so hinking that I should get a lighter spring gun that shoot around 12 f/pounds straight out of the box. Anyone has any ideas.

Please let me know
thanks
Biagio

Kelly, I don't think we have to worry about Biaggio selling his TX200. He's a buyer NOT a seller! :D :D :D
