Mine did that, luckily no other damage was done but it was a job for the gunsmith to sort. Mine was ok sitting and kneeling but standers gave a POI shift, never shot it prone so i can't say on that one.
The ideal for me would be Pro-sport for looks, the Rekord trigger because i find it easier to adjust and fettle compared to the AA unit, the internals of the AA rifle but with the feel and user friendliness of the 97. A tuned HW is as near perfect as i can find.
Whiscome's don't count Andy cos they're not proper boingers... what's the point of having a springer that doesn't spring?

The 97 and prosport either forget the tx but your choice.

I've never noticed POA changes with position, with the exception of prone (which i'm pants at to be fair). Thats with the standard stock, and a modified stock.

I've had a Mk2, and 2 MK3 HC's, all lovely.
I second that!! I own one of Martins TX's (HC) and love it
