I'm not sure that this is the right forum, but I'll try it just the same....

I own a Champions Choice T200 (and I'm REALLY enjoying it), but, I'd LOVE to put a choked Lothar barrel on it. My previous basement target gun was a Daisy 953. I was able to get a Lothar barrel from Daisy for it and I noticed an improvement. (I would note that for a total investment of less than $250 for the original Daisy 953, the Lothar barrel AND a trigger upgrade, it had to be the best deal in basement shooting history.)

I was wondering if there is a Lothar barrel available as a user bolt on option for my T200. (I see that you can get the Lothar barrel for the MPR, but something tells me it won't fit my receiver.)

I doubt I'll ever shoot in a competitive sporter match, so keeping the gun "legal" isn't an immediate concern, but I would like the modification to be reversible.

Has anyone done this and if so, can they point me in the right direction?

Peter T.

I must admit I thought they used LW barrels anyway, but I certainly don't think their 15mm barrels are a weak point.
Rather spend time polishing and adjusting the trigger.
Maybe find out how to float the existing barrel at the Air Arms Owners Club site in UK.
Get some middle weight JSB wadcutters (aka Air Arms Match pellets)

You can ask on http://www.airarmsownersclub.com

My T200 shoots as about as well as most Precision air rifles, shooting from a rest. The difference in competition at the top scores, imho, is not in the barrel, it is in the ergonomics of fit that the Precision air rifles give the shooter. The only problem for me is its size - it is too small for me.

They say you can't buy a score, and for the most part I think 'they' are right, unless the air rifle is a real dud.
