My new FX Royale 400 FT

Postby Tomaz on Tue Dec 25, 2012 10:10 pm

I tested my new FX Royale 400 FT for the first time the other day. It was cold and snowy, so it was just an initial test.

I noticed that the first one or two shots from the magazine drifted to the left, but after loosening the spring inside the magazine 2 turns, it all got allot better, and now shoot as good as when single feeding the rifle. Don´t really know why the spring in the magazine is set with such high tension from the factory.

Probably not optimal condition to shoot a PCP when it´s freezing outside. White smoke coming out of the barrel when shooting, and after a while the shroud was covered with frost..It worked flawlessly however, and I hope the cold didn't do any harm to the internals..

The trigger weight is set to 80 grams and is extremely nice to use.

I shot 12-shot groups (one magazine) from 50 meters (55 yards), and think the rifle did good considering the weather.

The ammo I used, was FX and Air Arms 16gr pellets made by JSB @ 885 fps

Pretty indeed! I do like how the '200 looks in that trim better though. Hard choice between a Verminator Mk2 Extreme and this one, for sure. Luckily I've a month to decide left :)

I just got mine (FX Royale 400 FT ) this evening and put a Leupold 6-18x on it and am hitting flies at 25 yards right off the bat. The gun is totally comfortable to shoot after a few adjustments. I'm shooting 16 gr FX pellets on the medium power setting. They are going into the same hole.
