    I am sorry I forgot to tell you. It is bone stock right out of the factory. The only thing I have done to it is replace the top breach seal.

    My TX200 is right at 14.5 FPE. I honestly can't see how it would shoot better but I don't doubt you. I am using mine for farm pest control. I have shot 250 Rock Chucks this spring with mine I have seen first hand the power of 14.5 FPE. Chucks are...

    I got a Air Arms TX200. The accuracy of a PCP but the freedom of a springer. This group was shot at 50 yards.
