Good Day Guys,

I regiestered just last Month and also new to the discussions.
This is great forum, I browsed it for info before finaly settling on my FX Revo. 177 last Oct 2012
without this site that decision would have been very difficult, as I kept geeting -ve feedback from most other sites.
But so far, my Revo has been true to me and hasn't let me down to date.

Thanks Guys for helping me get a great gun.

G'Day Huck, Good to have you on board. Are you going to post a review on your new rifle? I for one would love to read it. Some of the reviews/threads/help on this forum have been really useful to me in choosing my own rifles.

Royale 400 .22 FAC

This is just as short review of My Revolution as I only received my chrony last friday - and still going through the workings and reports of the chrony.
Back yard testing approximately 20yds to target.

Starting with a full tank of air of 220 bars
Shooting H & N Baracuda 10.65gr - 0.177
1-10 string shot count resulted in an average muzzle velocity of 1,029fps

4 shots using Crosman Destroyer EX 7.9gr - 0.177
Average muzzle velocity was 1,151fps.

Forgive me guys I know I need to do a proper and complete test, but bear in mind was just to ensure every thing was fine with chrony as well as my brother in-law was testing his Diana RWS 350 magnum springer 0.177
Shooting the same Baracuda 10.65grs - 0.177
1-10 string count resulted in an average muzzle velocity of 910fps
using the same Crosman Destroyer EX 7.9grs - 0.177
resulted in muzzle velocity of 1,089fps.

Once I am at the range and have everything setup will give you guys the full details - just hope its soon need to find time to go to the range

Hi Guys

My name is Tony and I have Just joined. I inherited a RWS Cutlas in .22 from my late father and initially had a few issues with it - leaky seals and a loss in power (its the sub 12 ft lbs version) but after reading the relative comments on this forum as a guest, I was able to resolve all the issues I had so first of all may I say a huge thank you to existing members for all your advice and assistance, without which I would still be scratching my head in search of a resolution.

Secondly a proper introduction. I had my first air rifle aged 11, a Diana .177 break barrel and my next one aged 64, the RWS Cutlas I mentioned above. In between I have actively pursued all manner of game, fowl and vermin via small bore, centre-fire and shotgun. I am a keen stalker and driven game shooter and take great pride in building my own ammunition for my full bore rifles.

I served in HM Forces, where I developed my love of full bore after having the opportunity to combine skiing and shooting at competition level for a few years.

Now I am turning full circle and again discovering the joys of airgun shooting with what can only be described as the most accurate tool I have ever had the pleasure of using and I look forward to learning more about this remarkable little rifle.

Kind regards.

Tony Johnstone. (Wales)

Salute to all of you air rifle addicts!

I am from Québec, Canada and I recently renewed with a long time youth activity: air rifle shooting. I must say it has been more than 40 years but I still remember coming back from school, grabing my .177 single stroke piston and heading for the woods! Rocks, cans, bottles and poor little birds... As I am some sort of extreme and dedicated kind of guy (must be the only one on this forum...) I feel that I became pretty good at it with the open iron sights. Followed up in the military, I was the only one that qualified for the cross rifle badge in my first year of military college and I was quite proud of this.

Now, some 40 years later, I run across a Crosman Benjamin Trial NP in 22 cal at a hardware store that came with a centerpoint scope and was $100.00 off... You guessed it, all my youth and good shooting memories came back and I went home with the rifle. After 5 months and more than 3500 rounds in my backyard 30 yards range, I had to dissassemble the rifle apart a few times, replace the seal, change the piston for a more powerful one, replace the canon pivot plastic washers by metallic one and install a Da Tuna GRT 3 trigger. Needless to say, it is a much better rifle now and a heck of a lot better than my old springer but I am still not totally satisfied. When I set-up on my shooting table, that my scope is perfectly calibrated and that I shoot 2 shots in the same hole, I become very upset and disappointed when the 3 shot becomes a flyer and lands 4 inches away! Had to have a rifle that if I missed, it can't be the rifle...

All this to say that I am waiting to receive my FX ROYALE 400 synthetic in 22 cal, and feel the difference between a Crosman Benjamin Trail NP and an FX. I hope to be blown away, my bank account certainly did!

Thanks for the welcome, I will gladly report soon how I live the transition to the FX Royale!

Cheers,

X rifles
