Default Best value for money twanger?

As per title what is the best value for money springer rifle?

The walther is the cheaper off the self than a hw97 or tx200 but does the price reflect the quality ?

All 3 shoot reasonably well out the box but could all do with a fettle to get the most out of them.

The LGU, is the easiest to shoot accurately, "out of the box" then the 97 lastly the Tx. The quality of the lgu is fine as long as you get a good one , some had problems with the under lever .

But for me its the TX every time , excellent quality, and when tuned the best of the bunch by far .

You've just said tx200 last but then say it's the one for you?
What makes the txt your choice over other two?

If you get chance to go to the next "boinger bash" near Nuneaton there'll be virtually limitless ones for you to try from antiques, through cheap Chinese ones to the highly modified "super" guns tuned by Nick himself & the other Springer gurus!
