Great advice there fishguy. Makes for alternatives when considering the 'oogles' around the 'elusive' HW77 SE that come and '''went'' very quickly before all the admirers eyes here!!.
Ha ha...just teasing you.

Cheers! and happy underlever hunting to YepYep.

The difference between the tx200 and pro sport is more than cosmetic. The tx is easier to cock with the improved leverage. It is however very front heavy. Some like that, some don’t. I don’t. The pro sport is more balanced to the middle or slightly to the rear which makes it feel nicer to handle for me. I’m putting a 12 ft lb spring into my pro sport shortly and I’m hoping that will ease the cocking effort somewhat. It’s certainly do able but after 50 shots or so you feel it.
Even though they both weigh less than a 300s I’d still take the 300s.

Between the tx, the ‘97, and the pro sport I’d go for the pro sport first, then the ‘97 then the tx. But both the Air Arms guns will shoot smoother out of the box.


Thanks for the advices~ that's good to know and very informative!

Yeah~ after checking these new type of guns recently, I found it looks cool to move the whole piston backwards to cock the gun and load it! I found one more reason to own it other than the born accuracy ~

I heard something about a 77SE not too long ago.... :D
With a vortex pg3 12ft lb kit installed, it’s quite the shooter. Maybe YepYep wants to grab the .22 77 SE laminate at D&L before it’s gone too?!

I said that already ~ it's cool to move the piston backwards when cocking to show the breech for loading~ that's cool~

Before I started checking the details about the under-levers, I was thinking that's only some kind of 'opening' a window for loading, similar to the Izzy 46M something...

That's too expensive than the 'other one' not too long ago~

And when a 97 SE and 77 SE show up together and asking you for you to choose....... Of course get both of them together! ( Isn't that marry both beautiful, twins, sisters is always a dream?! 8-) )

But sorry for my budget, when I have to give up one, I will pick the 97...

It's true, the 97 and 77 move the whole compression chamber backward for cocking. But not all under levers work that way. The HW57 does have the opening window for loading the pellet - its safer since you don't have to put your finger in the "rat trap" to load the pellet.
The cocking stroke on the HW97/77 is smooth and quiet. On the TX200 I believe it goes click click click as there are notches on the chamber that serve as sort of a safety to reduce the chance of finger removal in the breach.

I have the classic wood stock, if i were to get another 97 it would be the KL in blue laminate.


I am with you on the blue laminate but thumbhole for me. Have a tx 200 but would be a big Liar if I didn't admit that I want a 97 so badly. My name is Bob and I am addicted to airguns is there a 12 step for this :?: :wink:

LOL.....the first step is to admit it, you have gone so.....
The bad news is that you may get into PCP’s next.

Good luck

For a HW97, I will go for the .22 blued KL version... Finally made up my decision on this model... But this one will be after I buy the AA Pro Sport...

So, for my next gun after having the PAL in hand, I at the end picked the AA Pro Sport...

Although it's say very hard to cock (cocking effort as 40lbs); very expensive for a springer especailly so many to choose from about 100 bucks and this will empty your pocket for more than 1000, which the money will be good for a very nice PCP setup...

However I like every detail the manufacture provides on this beauty, and thinking I can handle it mainly because I don't think I will bring it into the bush and shooting without a rest, and I shoot almost every day, but actually not too much pellets each time, so that I have lots of time to recover from the exercise~

My 13 year old granddaughter, my daughter and my wife all had no trouble cocking, loading and shooting my HW97 in .177
however, they all preferred loading and shooting the Air Force Talon in .177. Part of that was the weight of each "piece".

[emoji38] my 12 years old daughter so far never successed in cocking the HW30 detuned yet~

And it's said the Pro Sport's cocking effort is about 10 lbs more than the TX200 and HW97... Anyway, I don't think the manufacture will make a springer needs only Hulk can cock~ so even thought in the beginning it's a bit difficult to somebody, you can get used to it very soon and help building up some more extra muscle ~
