Default Advice please.

I'm after some advice with regards to springers, tx 200 in particular.
1st, what type of lubrication ( grease, oil etc) is the best to use on the spring, piston and cylinder bore.
2nd, where is the best place to by spare seals, 'o' rings etc for a tx200.
Thanks for reading.
Peter

Pete,
I went down this route about 6 months ago, and tbh depends on what internals you end up testing and seeing if they suit you, I have tried nick g and dave price on the advice of another , both lovely and different , made a few mods on piston sleeving , only as I was on a mega fettle fettish at the time , anyhoo, your lube q, s will probably depend on this, it aint all in the twang
read all you can on all forums by tinbum , nick g , sakesan and others who are sooooo obviously into this and explore the avenue for yourself , theres more than a mountain of stuff out there ,I hope you enjoy it as much as I have , looking forward to t whft worlds in recoli 2017 if all goes well and I dont get addicted to the new element in the periodic table Welhamunobtanium 900 , all good fun ,
my TX 200 cs1000 stocks turning up tuesday , cant wait

Hi Peter
For the spares Julian Bond at airarmsspares.com is good to deal with, provides an axcellent service, joining the AAOC forum I think brings a 10% discount from him.
The lube question is somewhat subjective and can be dependent to some extent on what internals you have (per Vince's comments) and what your goals are with the lube regime (e.g. longevity between applications / cleaning, power efficiency... less spring, power reduction... spring damping, consistency through temperature extremes, reduced twang / noise and others...)
A bit like pizza toppings, endless variables and choice but, one persons favorite may not be yours!.

Default Springer lube.

Thanks to those that replied, and sent pm.
Done a bit more research on this forum, and have decided to use, red rubber grease on the main spring, and quantum reel grease on the seals and bearing ( found the information on a very interesting post by Brian Sampson) so a big thanks to Brian.
Peter
