Greetings.

I picked up my new Air Arms TX200 from AGS a week or so ago. It's a super nice gun and I couldn't be happier with the way it looks and shoots. I'll post more details in the general chat, but here are a few pictures. Not the best pictures of the gun, but you get the idea of how it looks. That's the Hawke Airmax 3-9 x 40 scope on it. Fit and finish was perfect.

I love the look of the walnut stock. :-)

Congrats, they are beautiful classic guns and it looks like you have a nice specimen.
.177 or .22?

Yes - the walnut is very nice on most AA rifles.
Good buy!

Thanks guys for the comments. I agree that it's a beautiful looking gun. Fit and finish is pretty much perfect.

Dukemeister, it's a .177.

Cheers

Congrads on Getting such a nice looking one. Do you plan on shooting field target with it.The shoots are great fun and the people you meet are awesome. :)

Thanks for the comments guys. It sure is a well liked/desired gun by many and I'm pretty happy with it. :-)

CBS Shooter - I answered your question in the other post I did in the general chat area, but just in case you missed it, I am considering going down the route of field target shooting. I think I'll end up struggling making any sort of external mods to this gun as it looks too darned nice to mess with. :-) If I try some field target events with the gun 'as is' and decide that I want to move forward, I think I'd look at getting another gun just for FT.

Cheers.
Gary

For FT shooting you will likely want a higher powered scope with side focus/parallax adjustment dial
and in the least, 1/2 Mil slashes with Mil dots as well.

Thanks for the heads up Daryl. While reading through the CAFTA website and watching videos on FT, I have taken notice on the high end scopes. I'll start saving my loonies now! :-)

You might want to consider taking a little TLC to the very fine walnut stock before the 'body oils' from your hands and cheek touching the 'raw' stock leave their trail.
Might I suggest a light coat of furniture oil (usually found under Lemon Oil) and then wiping over with a dry cotton terry. Of course the best is Boiled Linseed Oil that is hand rubbed into the grain. The stock will really come alive. Don't overdue application. A small amount on your finger tip really goes a long way over the stock rubbing with the grain.

Polymerized Pure Tung oil is even better than Linseed and less toxic.
It leaves a harder finish and does not smell like dead fish.
I use it on my vintage danish tak furniture and rigle stocks and grips .
Old school good stuff that can be buffed to a high gloss finish or left as natural satin once cured.

Hawk-I and Walther...thanks for the suggestion. Jonathan, thanks for the endorsement to get it done. I've got one more day of shooting next weekend and then I had planned on giving the stock a good clean and wipe down.

I'm a bit torn now with what direction I might go with finishes. I had actually bought some Tru Oil for the stock based on some internet research. As an amateur wood worker from the past, I have both boiled linseed oil, and Walther's suggested Tung Oil.

I don't want to start a huge debate over which one works the best as I'm sure there will be many opinions. I'll do a bit more research and then pick one and make it happen. The bottom line is to actually get it done. Thanks again for the suggestion to do it sooner rather than later.

Cheers.
Gary
