    I've found a brand new TX200 in a shop with a fantastic beach stock. Mine is perfectly nice, but the one I've seen is VERY nice for beach in my eyes!

    If I bought it just for the stock, swapped the stock for my 2 month old stock in totally 100% unmarked as new condition, do you think I could sell the new TX straight out at a discount as new?

    The action would be unshot, with all boxing and wrapping.

    What sort of discount would I expect to have to put on it?

    Thanks,
    Rob.

    If it's a nice one and the right sort of money......buy it.

    Beautiful, beautiful and superbly engineered rifles. All time classic.

    Easy to cock.......yes.

    Full power........no. They're a 6ft.lbs target rifle designed for target shooting at 6 yards / 10 metres. Although they are EXTREMELY accurate at longer ranges, too. Some may have violated them to get more power. Personally I think this is sacrilegious and these classic rifles should be left standard. There were stories years ago of hunting rabbits at ranges of up to 30 yards (I seem to remember).

    Lots of info on the 'net if you have a scout around.

    I'd have thought about 75 less than the new price?

    I'll go to the shop tomorrow first thing with my TX and have a close compare.
    See how it goes
    There maybe a new TX up for grabs at well under RRP
