Prosport tune optionsJuly 14 2017 at 9:12 PM

Members I need your opinion, your experience and options of tunes that apply to Pro Sports. Basically I would love to get my prosport tuned or at least a good thorough through by someone who is very experienced and knowledgeable in that field. Now I do not want a 12 FPE prosport I would like to keep the same factory power or maybe just a little bit less or a little bit more but I want what Pro Sport owners have experienced or are experiencing now with a smooth shot cycle, repeatability of power and accuracy (so as long as I do my part). I would like to have the right lubes applied/used (krytok, I think that's how it's spelled) after market breach and piston seals from JM or vortek, as well as one of their springs or their kits.
So tell me what do you have, what are the pros and cons of the choices and so forth. I am just trying to see what is available and what route I should take and with whom
The only thing i would do is,pull it apart and shrink wrap the guide

to take the buzz out out it.The TX platform is pretty much at its max from the factory.
Not a Pro Sport, but my experience with a pair of TX 200's

If you want to keep the same power level, just look into a drop in guide and tophat from from tinbum over in the UK. I put his drop in kit with short stroke piston spacer in my TX200 and got a nice improvement. The short stroke dropped power from 16 ft lbs to about 13, but reduced recoil and hold sensitivity a lot. The guide quieted it down a lot. Does your rifle have any twang or spring noises now?
Yeah she does but

What I worry about as of now is that if I put a tune kit or replace it with JM or Vortek internals I will have to start over with everything meaning pellets election hold etc. And I think her accuracy is very reasonable now. So the debate I am having is should I mess with something that's not broken. Do you know what I mean?

If it shoots acceptably, leave it alone. If the twang bothers you get a drop in kit. Mine liked 10 gr jsbs and 8.4 gr FTT at full power. Now it likes the AA 8.4 which should be the same as JSB 8.4, but this gun doesn't agree with.
I tuned a few tx200s

And the best full power option I found was a stock spring shortened 2 turns, spaced almost stacked with a brass spacer in the piston end. A tight Delrin guide, be sure to true the piston rod, they can be way off center. Finally stone the trigger sear, I like the CD trigger way more than a Record. Very nice guns.

I don't feel comfortable

Cutting my spring or any other type of work on the gun itself aside from a clean n relube or a drop in kit
