I bought my SR when they were first released on U.S. shores. It is a visually appealing and very well made

example of English gunsmithing. All the complaints

of this rifle centered around the semi-recoiless sliding

action. Some people complained the sliding mechanicsm “rattled” around while others found the rifle

difficult to cock. I liken the TX 200SR semi-recoiless

mechanism to the famous FWB 300s and Running Boar versions and the fabulous model 65 pistol. When I shoot these pieces, I allow the breech/barrel assembly to slide forward before cocking. Just dip the barrel down and

everything resets itself. This alleviates much of the effort required to cock the rifle. I love mine and will

never sell it. The semi-recoiless setup works brilliantly.

I feel almost like I am cheating shooting a springer

that isn’t cantankerous about “the hold”. Afterall,there is, ladies and gentlemen, a reason why U.S. Field

Target doesn’t allow these rifles to compete in the

spring piston class! You figure it out.

Semi-Recoiless wonder. When properly tuned and adjusted you can expect groups like high end PCP. Not hold sensitive. Great match trigger. Good luck finding one for sale…
