Response to Check out this TX200 Video

was my first rifle back in the 1990's. I could place one pellet on the scope knob and take a shot with no vibration to the pellet. I never thought about stacking pellets. Roz Sumpter shot the Park 93 at the Nationals and did just great. I owned a .22cal Whiscombe 75 and the 12 ft/lb Park was smoother. I know, it is not comparing apples to apples. The Whiscome was near 20 ft/lbs. I just like the Giss system best. 10 meter Giss is incredible!!
I had a recoiless TX200 and found it to be very fussy. The sledge system required constant fartin around with. I tried all of the supposedly nylon style locking nuts and they all lacked. I prefer my regular TX200. My IFP scores were always to same with either rifle.
About the video, this guy from Greece must have taken the whole action and mounted it on linear bearings. I can't believe he tuned the factory sledge system to achieve what we saw in the video. Never the less, this guy is sure talented.
