Im contemplating a TF97 purchase as a loaner, tinker project, time killer. Has anyone owned or shot one of these guns in either caliber? What are your impressions of build quality, shot cycle, trigger etc? I need something besides the reviews on PA. Thanks, gents.
it came with the jm spring. Mine was .177 and it cocked and shot very smooth, I did open it up to lube tune, it did not really need it but was kinda dry. It started off with Silver Bear pellets at 840 fps then calmed down to around 600 fps. They are very nice rifles for the money. I refinished mine in natural poly.
The end result was 590 fps with RWS Basic pellets and sooo smooth and accurate that I could shoot 10 meter with it. The stock is a little chunky but over all, a nice piece. I am getting another in .22 soon, myself.
