** I tried to get the springer I wanted, but...

I tried to get the springer I wanted... a TX200SR MkII



I came close a couple of times, but unless you check the for sale section every 10 minutes, you don't have a chance.



I had sold My 2 tricked Gamos, a few extra scopes I had, some extra automotive and carpentry tools I had.



This along with a few hundred out of the crying and moaning pool got me this: A .177 [19.91fpe] Walther LG300 Dominator Hunter,



which has a wooden laminateS200-type stock.



I threw on a scope I traded for that NK scope I tried to sell here, with a few bucks, and got the Leapers 8-32x56 scope, as



I want to target shoot further out than 35 yards, and I thought it would be a good idea.





The grip feels great, and the triggerhas adjustable everything, andlets go around 3oz, a little lighter than the Airwolf, which I wouldn't



have believed.





I think they've discontinued [but still support] it, so that was why the price was so good.



It's a bit loud, but a craftsman is working on that now.





Oddly, the air cylinder works in up to 300bar [4350psi], and gets 40+ shots a refill, and the standard deviation with JSBXHVYs was around 1.4,



which is really good, and around 1.8 with CPHs, which is still pretty good.

Here are some Excel charts of my Walther LG300 Hunter, fps vs count values



The 19fps is obviously better.



I was pumping pellets through a 1/2 inch hole at 40 yards... first time to the range since I got the gun. And I intend to get better :)



At 100+ shots flat, I get as many good shots as I do from the Airwolf, though I have to fill to 300bar to get it.



And the trigger is more adjustable, and it will pull as lightly as the AW, at 3 - 3 1/2 ounces.



Since the wolf has basically no sdjustments, my small hands/fingers have a hard time.



Everything is adjustable on Walther... so I'm selling the AW to get the FT version of the LG300.
