TX200 Siblings

Post by Mac » Fri Jul 31, 2020 9:20 pm

I have pretty much been shooting TX200s of some iteration for a few years now and really liking it. I have four of them now. Started with the Mk2 a few years back, but did not shoot it a lot. It is the second one down, topped with an AirMax 4-16.

I had been trying to talk a friend into selling me his TX200SR Mk2 for years without success, then I spotted one on the classified ads in the US and I happened to know the seller. I contacted him and he offered me a great deal on an unmolested/ unmodified TX200SR Mk1. So I picked up my first SR, the one at the top of the pic and it wears a Sightron 10-50.

The friend I wanted to by the Mk2 SR from had traded it for a scope to another friend of mine. So I made it clear that if he wanted to sell it, I wanted first crack at it. A number of years later, I was able to pick up the SR Mk2 in a nice match stock, the third rifle down. It happens to be a left handed action in a right handed stock, which works very well for loading with my left hand rather than reaching around with my right. It is topped with a very rare Premier modified Leupold MK4 fixed 35X.

I have been wanting a carbine, so when one became available at AGS, I snapped it up, the one at the bottom with a beech stock. I have a walnut stock you can see at the side of the pic. It was shooting hot when I bought it and I have installed a Tony L. 22mm kit in it and it feels like a different rifle; very quick, mild firing cycle. It has a Bushnell 6500 4-16 mounted and I am just in the process of sighting it in. Early results are extremely promising. Will be keeping an eye out for a match stock for it.

I hope I can get a good sibling rivalry going between these guns. All the guns have RWS bullseye mounts that have been modified by Hector Medina to take all of the extra movement out of them.
