    A fellow club mate has just stripped his TX200 and found this. Its clearly not standard. Does anybody know anything about this modification.

    He has no problems with it,it shots nice he was just curious as to what was inside. Now i am as well.

    Thanks in advance.

    So it looks like it has been converted to run on an O ring instead of the normal seal, it obviously works, but wont you get steel to steel contact when at the bottom of the stroke, and won't that make it a little harsh on shooting ?.

    Tx200

    Thats exactly what appears to have been done and my first thought was as you say metal to metal contact but the chap says it shots very weel and having tried another club members TX he says that this one seems smoother.

    TX piston

    Hi guys
    I'm quite new to shooting and ft
    This is my rifle in question it shoots
    Really well I stripped it down just to
    Have a look as I bought it second hand
    And it didn't bounce as much as a
    Standard one and found what is in
    The photo above
    I was just wondering if this is a homemade
    Modification or is it a kit you can buy?
    If so who does them just in case I need
    A new O ring

    Thank you Davie

    Probably a standard size O ring, just take it to someone like City Seals & Bearings and they will match it up, and it will be much cheaper than a normal piston seal.

    Nick Murphy and Rob Long have both worked on TX200s in the past up here in the midlands, may be worth giving them shout....
