For a long time I owned, used and loved my Air Arms tx200... it had a walnut, anti recoil stock, built in silencer and belted out rabbit magnums at about 19fps!.... sigh!
I was doing a bit of pest control on farms and land a lot then.... great times.

19 fps? I fart harder than that.

In air rifle terms, 19fps isn't bad .... the legal limit here is @ 11fps.

In air rifle terms here, 495 feet per second and over is considered a firearm.
Are you sure you have your units correct?

I've fired the Crossman Nitro Piston break barrel in .22 and it has some power. I own two bengerman Sheridan air rifles and enjoy both.
Crossman now has the Nitro Piston 2.0. They will give your arm a workout, but 1 pump and it's ready.

Have you got a crossbow? if you really look into them its a wonder they were dropped in favor of Gunpowder, as the fire rate and accuracy would outshoot a Brown Bess, maybe its the bang or something. Everything about them is pretty organic and doesn't require an industrial base for parts. Accuracy and power on some of the modern ones are pretty amazing. I made a copy of a fifteenth century one, shoved in an off the shelf 175 pound Pod , all in white oak, made a bolt jig and dowel maker, and cocking lever,( Gaff lever). If I just had an axe knife and saw, I would go for the Viking version.

Head over to some air rifle forums, you could probably pick something decent up for £300, something ready to go with scopes, gunbag etc.

Yeah they're pretty standard, reliable and easy to keep in good Nick..... weihrach (think that's how its spelt) are also really good reliable air rifles too, German made so well built.

I just wanted to say that I salute you for your determination to buy something British or as close as you can get in this day and age of multinational everything!

Personally I try to buy domestic (I'm an American so I buy American, but yeah) first and if I can't buy domestic I prioritize the anglosphere. If I can't get from them I "buy western" with some big huge caveats like I don't buy German ANYTHING EVER except curry ketchup LOL.

It was a close run thing I nearly bought German made but the deal I have gotten is too good to pass on.

Nice set-up, shouldn't miss with that.

One thing though could I make myself a wooden stock and fit it to the gun?.
It could be a pet woodwork project.

As long as the entire action can be removed and works without a built in the stock function you should be able to restock it.Be a fun project. a reply to: testingtesting
