I was thinking about your TX today Mark :yes:

I've had a bit of work to do on mine and, I was wondering what a professionaly tuned one might be like.

...... How would you honestly describe the shot cycle and, how does it feel when cocking yours?

..... Genuine question mate :)

Hi Jon,

 

Shot cycle,- low recoil, very fast lock time and smooth as.

               The trigger is set to, a two stage, very precise and crisp let off.

 

Cocking my T Rex, - not for a child, powerful and smooth, with a very precise, single quiet click.

 

               Over the Primo sticks I am very disappointed should I miss.

 

               Hope that helps any,

 

                             atb  Mark.

Jon,

 

            Hold sensitivity is minimal because of the weight of this rifle - one of the most accurate springers I`ve ever shot.

Cheers Mark :thumbs:

Do you feel all 3 latches on the anti bear trap when cocking yours?

..... I've put a piston extension in mine - only one of the ABT latches engages then, it takes a bit more force to get the piston to engage.

Cocking isn't as smooth as I'd like yet but, I can't complain about the accuracy.

Well done and good on you Mark.  Not many will say out loud that it take a lot of practice even after a lifetimes shooting to maintain those skills obtained, never mind keeping them at any level.

All the very best for you and yours

Well shot Mark. It's always good to see a man take a pride in his shooting and his rifle. :thumbs:
