    Not a scope killer with the 12-15 fps Maccari kit. I fitted the Lynx 6-24 X 42 and allready shot 1500+ JSB heavy's and still tuning fine. The only big thing to watch out for is that the scope must not be too heavy. The Lynx weight only 470 grams. I first tested the big Leapers and it was a dissaster. The gun rely on the sliding action to present the recoilles feeling. The weight of the scope jeopardise the action and the shots become inaccurate.
    But on the overall the rifle is very accurate. Me personally enjoy it very much.

    But I must admit to spare a lot of effort the HW97K and the TX200 is very good out of the box.

    Thanks for your help. I think I will wait for the HW97 to get here, the dealer tells me that they are on the dock in Germany and take about six weeks to get here.Craig

    Decided to get the AA TX200MK3 from Guido and collected it from him today. I must say I am very pleased with this rifle and the leapers scope that I bought with it. The service from Guido was fantastic and if you are looking to buy a rifle in Cape Town he is the man(I know I have bought from others before). Having a springer adds a whole new dimension to my airgunning and a lot of fun. If you only have PCP rifles get a springer, its worth it.Thanks to all that gave me advice. Craig

    I agree craig, would never think of not having a springer. PCP great for competition, but springer so much fun to shoot. Got to caress them just right, like a woman. Very rewarding when you in the "zone".

    By the way if anyone else is interested ina 97K, Kings in Durban have one of those new blue ones in stock. Looks pretty funky.

    I need a V-Glide kit, How do I get hold of Steve Pope? Anyone???

    [html] They are not that new, been around for at least a few years.

    You also get a green version, although I think that was a limited edition centenary model and only 500 were made and came with a multi tool.
