Elegant Design and Look
Field Target Competition Accuracy

The Walnut ProSport is regarded by many as the best spring operated rifle available. The model comes in a standard format normally associated with a highly tuned rifle. This includes features such as a 12 groove Lothar Walther barrel and a multi-adjustable two-stage trigger which make this gun a real winner.  In addition, synthetic bearings provide tuned "out of the box" performance. And last, but not least, the ProSport has an ergonomically designed, high combed,  beautiful right handed walnut sporter stock.

The ProSport lives up to its reputation as a superb, well-built air rifle in .177 and .22 caliber. The rifle is smooth and quiet with plenty of power for any task from field target in .177 caliber to pest control and hunting in .22 configuration. The stock is heavy but balances beautifully which makes it a stable shooting platform.

The velocity results will convince most people that the rifle has more than enough power to handle any shooting situation. We were quite pleased not only with the velocity in both calibers but also with the smooth firing nature of the rifle.

It is no wonder that the ProSport has such a good reputation for quality and accuracy in the airgunning community and is the airgun of choice for many field target competitors.

This customer purchased the item at our site.
With the 2020 crazieness with firearms and ammunition, I decided to pick up another Air Arms .177 springer. I already have a TX200 in Walnut that I bought from Straight Shooters back in 2008. The TX is a beautiful tackdriver with fit and finish equal to multi thousand dollar traditional firearms. It was a hard choice back in 2008 deciding between the TX and Pro-Sport, and I went with the underlever mostly due to the $100 price difference. Ever since then I always wanted a matching Pro -Sport due to the beautiful lines and hidden underlever making it nearly indistinguishable from a centerfire rifle. Now in 2020 with ammo in all calibers either unavailable, or ludicrously expensive, I am back to shooting airguns for practice, and small game hunting. I have taken many Cottontails, Red Squirrels, and Starlings with the TX200 out to and past 100 yards. I have found that the .177 with its flat trajectory, and energy delivery actually equals or exceeds my lethality with .22LR. The pellets seem to be more deadly due to the complete energy dump, vs just passing through like the .22LR.

Craig at Straight Shooters is great to deal with, and I am so glad that I chose to order my new rifle from the same company I trusted 12 years ago. I recommend them to anyone that has an interest in my rifles.

Advantages: The gun is knockout gorgeous! It is lights out accurate, putting pellets through other pellet holes at 50 yards. Both the TX200 and Pro-Sport are very forgiving of hold, and for the most part do not require the standard airgunner "Artillery Hold" which for me as a firearms shooter is a huge plus. The "shrouded" (suppressed) barrel is seamlessly integrated, and nice and quiet, couple that with the action being tuned to deliver the pellet just below the speed of sound. It is great to hunt and shoot without ear protection and without scaring game or bothering neighbors.
Both guns love Crosman 7.9 grain hollowpoint pellets, which work perfectly for hunting and target use, and when you get them on sale and in bulk (Academy Sports) can be had for less than a penny a piece. These guns are more accurate than a match .22 and you get over 100 shots to the dollar. It makes a $700 gun a no brainer if you want to shoot a lot. The quality level is so high on these that my great grandchildren will be using them.

Disadvantages: The scoped Pro-Sport feels heavier than the TX200, whether it is or not. The Pro -Sport stock has a considerably thicker "wrist" (pistol grip) than the TX200.

Cocking effort on the FAC Pro-Sport is quite a bit higher than that of the TX200 due to differences in linkage and mechanical advantage. It isnt hard by any means, but if you have problems with upper body strength, I would choose the TX200 over the Pro-Sport.

For me the largest disadvantage of the Pro-Sport by far is the inability to decock the action. My practice with the TX200 is to open the breech to 3 clicks on the anti-beartrap, leave a pellet in the breech, and then release the lever, leaving the gun decocked but loaded. This allows me the ability when hunting, to cock the gun when I see something to shoot at, and otherwise leave it ready much like a traditional firearm. The TX also has the ability to decock once cocked if you carefully unsafe the rifle, and pull the trigger while holding the lever in the right spot. If this is possible on the Pro-Sport, I cant figure out how to do it due to the auto-beartrap feature and internal safetys. This leaves you with firing the gun as the only option. For me this means that the TX will still be used more for hunting than the Pro-Sport.
