Break Barrel, Pumper and Springer Airguns / Unknown RWS
« Last post by Alan on November 05, 2018, 01:45:44 PM »
A friend of mine owns this gun. I have an opportunity to buy it for 75% of its current value. However, I don't know what it is for sure. It is a side cocker, and in .177 caliber. So will the resident RWS exert tell me what it is, and what it might be worth?

Welcome aboard. If you use the right pellet, the TX200 is a tack holer out to about 30 yards.

Think lead dust.

The size of the particles are what counts. A really good, face mask, hepa filter can strain out down to about .3 microns when it is new. The hepa filter (?) that ShopVac sells for example, is rated at .5 micros, but it doesn't take long before the filter's effectiveness drops drastically (they sort of tell you this in the fine print).

Particles size of contaminants which cause respiratory illnesses are typically in the 1 to 2 micron range, or about the size of LEAD DUST! In relation, harmful bacteria averages 2 microns, talc is about 10, and graphite is about 40.

At my age, it probably doesn't make such difference, but I do wear an enclosed face mask when cleaning my suppressor. And I do it outside!

I assume you popped the regulated side. I replaced mine with a 7.5K and never looked back. I don't understand how a 5K disk is going to save anything on the regged side if your psi is never that high.
Just for $#!ts and giggles, what about a small car vacuum, shop vac with a air hose or something as a reducer? I'm just sitting here half asleep (from being up for a day and a half crab fishing and also the time change) thinking about that. It may not be perfect but would it work enough to able to maintain it at a satisfactory level?

If I'm completely off of my rocker, I can accept that. It's just a thought and something that I'm also curious about. It hasn't been an issue because the my Texan's sile..errrr….dust collector attaches easily. I need to look twice at the Streamline to see what needs to be done down the road for long term maintenance.
The problem with permanent suppressors and silencers is that not only can they not be removed, but cleaning them is not an option either. Many of them allow the barrel of your airgun to be cleaned but there isn’t any maintenance that can be done to the suppressor itself. Don’t get me wrong . An airgun suppressor is not nearly as subjective to the fowling that an airgun suppressor is by any means. However, why buy something that cannot be maintained either.

I assume you have a known-good gauge?

I had a 3K disc fail, when the pressure was just 2,300. If I knew why, I'd be rich. Replace it, and try again.
