So I bought a D48 this Spring in .177 which is a very good shooter but I'm thinking I want to switch to a .22 since I only use it for tree rats. I know this question must have been debated as nauseum but is there any difference between the TX 200 and HW 97? Not the type to tinker so out of the box performance is the goal. If I proceed with this I will sell the D48-.177.

I personally use the TX200(22 cal) and I have no complaints. Initially when I was out hunting for my first Springer, I was torn between the HW97 & TX200. I basically read a lot of reviews and watched Youtube vids and many airgunners who own both rifles say the TX200 is smoother out of the box. I haven't tinkered with it at all and after 5500+ pellets through it, it can still group 5 shots inside of a dime at 30 yards; bench rested.

I used to have the tx200hc in 22 cal with vortek kit installed. Very smooth shooter, and just a mild backward recoil felt when shooting. Very accurate too. Pellet on pellet accuracy in 15 meters. Then I got the HW97KT blackline in 22 as well.. Cocking is smoother coming out of the box. When I shot it side my side with my then TX200HC, the HW surprisingly made tighter groups using the same pellets and shooting at the same distance.. and that's out of the box... A bit heavy and not as beautiful as the TX but much on the utilitarian side since I got the synthetic stock. I still have the HW97 as my last springer with a vortek kit I am planning to install once time permits... Thinking of selling it since I am getting to the "darker side" but still not decided... ;-)

Either of the guns you've mentioned will be great shooter,but based on my experience, I will give a bit plus to HW out of the box... and maybe more when equipped with the Vortek kit. Happy choosing/shooting! ;-)

Started with a Blackline in .177, then bought an HW98 in .22. I picked up a wooden HW thumbhole stock for the Blackline - like it better.

Now, I would like a thumbhole wooden stocked .22 in HW97 and a .177 in the HW98.

I do have a Vortec kit for the HW98, but have not installed it yet. The rifle shoots very well as it is, but - might do better with the kit? One of these days
