  • Thanks for the response and helpful advice.. The pin is centered now and will see if it stays. Will try the Loctite also. Charles Sullivan, Little Rock, Arkansas,USA.

  • Sorry - I'd got hold of the wrong end of the stick (or cocking arm). Without actually seeing the rifle it can be hard to diagnose what the problem is. The play in the lever that you talk about is harmless. As for the ball indent; providing it ,doesn't fall out, it won't be a problem. There are a number of ways to secure the pin - first make sure that it is not bent. If not, try gently 'pinging' both ends of the pin with a pin punch (while the pin is in place) which may be enough to secure it. Or you could use a tiny spot of breakable thread-fix type adhesive on either end of the pin.

  • Thanks for the response. The 1/4 " play that I have is just before the cocking arm becomes engaged by the indent ball. I have talked to one other TX 200 owner who has had his rifle for awhile and he has 1-1/2 " play. My current concern is that while the indent ball does click into place and does holdi the arm the ball is not completely filliing the indent cavity on the end of the arm. At the time of purchase and since I have had the rifle I have not noticed the orientation of the two, not until this problem arose. If the pin slips again any idea how to secure it in place other than a tiny drop of Superglue?

  • Hope that's the problem sorted. There should be a little play in the indent engagement, as too much could make it hard to 'break'.

  • Thanks for the response. I removed the action from the stock and found that the cocking link pivot pin had worked its way out of the grove over to one side. I repositioned it to the center and the indent ball will now "click" into the edge of the recess at the end of the cocking arm and hold it in place. The indent ball does not completely fill the recess but it definitely holds the cocking arm in place. Checking with a straight edge the cocking arm is not bent. I have about 1/4 " of play before the cocking arm engages the indent ball. will have to run sosme pellets thru it to see if the pin will stay in place.

  • If this has only happened since tuning, it might be that the cocking assembly hasn't been re-assembled correctly or it has been damaged during the work process. So the first thing to do is take it back to the people that carried out the work. They should be able to spot what is causing the problem immediately, and if it is down to them, they should repair it.

  • I recently purchased a TX 200 HCin .177 for offhand silhouette shooting. I had the gun "tuned" ( new spring and guides put in ). Since being returned I have just now started practicing and have noticed the underbarrel cocking rod showing some noticeable resistance to closing at about 75% into returning the arm to the closed position. Now the arm will just make contact with the retention ball and becomes "unsecured" on firing. Any idea what might be the problem? I have checked the chamber and found not lead residue ( like from a crushed pellet ).
