No matter how many FPE it's shooting or what country you live in, the breech seal set-up on the TX-200 and 77/97 is more vulnerable than it is on the barrel cocking guns.
That's because with every shot the seals get pounded upon by a hammer. That hammer is the piston.
For that reason the breech seals on under-lever rifles should be periodically-checked for wear and leakage. It may not happen as fast on every one of them, but it will happen more often on the under-lever models than it does on the barrel cocking rifles. The seals on the break-barrel rifles don't have to take the same pounding as the ones on the under-lever rifles that were named.
