    Default BAM B41?

    Ek sit in 2 gedagtes.

    Ek kan n BAM 41 en n GAMO cfx kry vir die selde prys 2dehands maar weet nie wat die beter koop is nie. Ek het n JKhan pcp in 5.5 maar mis die springers. Pcp is nice maar soek weer n springer. Het n gamo shadow gehad wat redelik akuraat was tot 25m 8mm ctc. Wel ek dink vir n gamo waaraan daar nie gekrap was nie was dit goed. Koop toe pcp maar hom wys jy in n algemene rigting,trek sneller en wat en waar jy wil skiet is geskiet...

    Is die BAM 41 n copy van die tx200 of was dit die BAM 40 wat die copy was. Die idee is om tot 50m te skiet met die springer en dan dalk as ek dit regkry my hand in ft te probeer.

    Hoop jul ervare manne het raad. Oja en moenie s spaar vir n tx200 nie want dit kan nog d_n_rs lankvat.

    nanti...

    the BAM 41 is a TX200 copy....and with a little work, they can be very good value. Search the forum, Paris did quite a bit of work on the 41's. There is a lot of info on them here.

    I've only shot a MZE gasrammed CFX which was nice.
    I have owned a B41 and now a B40.
    I personally like the Bams, but they definately need a strip and relube

    Here is what the late Mze said about the springer BAMs....

    When Bliz was sighting the B41 in, his groups were the equal of what the Weihrauchs were achieving.
    I like to think that he got "buck fever" when shooting in the competition, and this coupled with deteriorating conditions, rewarded him with larger groupings.
    Co-coincidently, after I had shot in the competition, I found that my own groupings were not as good as those achieved in the early morning.

    The differences between the B40 and the TX200MKIII are:
    The wood from which the stock is made;
    The breech seal;
    The shape of the end plug;
    The quality of the bluing.

    The B40 stock is plain and light, the TX200's stock is heavier and accurately detailed.

    The B40 breech seal is conical, fitting the conical end of the breech.
    The TX200 uses o-rings to seal the compression tube against the breech.

    The B40 end plug is less rounded than that on the TX200.

    The B40 bluing is duller and of less quality than that of the TX200.

    The differences between the B40 and B41 are:
    B40 barrel is shrouded, B41 is not;
    B40 under-lever retaining mechanism is steel and identical to TX200, B41 is a good quality plastic mechanism;
    B40 compression tube is identical to TX200 with large nut screwed in the front which often works loose on both the B40 and TX200;
    B41 compression tube has a welded front end containing the breech seal similar to that used on the Weihrauch HW77/97 rifles;
    B41 has two addition screws retaining the rear plug/trigger group;
    B41 has different trigger group not as adjustable as that on the B40.

    I have a modification for the B41 trigger group which allows setting both first and second stages, but the trigger should be set with the trigger group out of the rifle.
    Holes (not by me) in the roof at NC will attest to this!

    Spring pressures should also be reduced in the trigger group to facilitate accuracy.

    I have a BAM B40 and a TX200. When the wolf knocks at the door I will probably sell the TX200 first. They both shoot very well but I will get very little for the BAM.
    I would like a B50 but that awful thingamabob cocking device just puts me off. I like side lever cocking.
    Oh, and the Air Arms TX200 service kit fitted the B40 with no hassle.

    Nanti, how much will the BAM or CFX set you back? What is your budget? Are both rifles still standard or have upgrades been done to them? If upgrades have been done then what has been done?

    Al 2 die gewere is nog standaard. Rede hoekom ek weer n springer soek is ek geniet die challenge. Met die pcp is dit net te maklik. Ek het n budget van R5000 vir scope en geweer.
