The FX Crown is a shooters dream. Much like a high performance race car, you can adjust and fine tune the Crown to achieve the highest accuracy of perhaps any rifle! Starting with the new FX Smooth Twist X barrel system. This new system allows you to now only change the caliber of the rifle (from .177 up to .30 cal) but you can also now exchange the barrel liner itself to further tailor your barrels twist rate and choke to the pellet of your choice. The Smooth Twist X system is housed in a fully shrouded barrel to keep things ultra quiet. In the coming months expect more and more barrel liner options to be offered as add on accessories for your FX Crown.
Adjustability has no limits with the FX Crown. At the base of stock are housed two pressure gauges; one to show the pressure of the removable 480cc carbon fiber bottle, the other the regulator pressure. This regulator can be adjusted externally as well. Other adjustments include a hammer spring adjustment and a valve flow adjuster on the left side of the stock. The adjustable two-stage trigger is easily called match grade and is simply one of the best triggers on the market today.
Please note that there is a LARGE demand for this rifle. Pre-orders as always will be fulfilled in the order they are received. Expect delays initially on the launch of this rifle.

This is the penultimate air gun. There's really nothing more to say.
If you try it, you WILL buy it.
The JSB 25.4 did right at 900 fps and the wind pushed them around a little at 50 yards. Then I switched to the JSB 34gr King MK-II, these pellets are shooting close to one hole groups at 50 yards and the wind did not seem to bother them at all. I never shot a pellet this heavy before and you could feel a slight recoil when firing the heavy JSB's. I am still getting a feel for this gun but I like what I see so far. The trigger is right at one pound but fully adjustable.
The Heavy JSB heavies are shooting right around 780 fps good for 46 foot pounds. Regulator pressure right out of the box was set at 133 bar. I bumped reg up to 140 bar but have not shot over chrony yet. Gun is definitely shooting hotter than it was before I increased reg pressure. With everything set on Max Power and sighted in at 50 yards with JSB 34's I can reduce hammer tension to 3 on dial and then shoot JSB 25.4's and not touch anything on scope the POI is exactly the same as the 34's. To me this is a really cool feature.From what I see so far FX has a real winner here with the Crown if gun remains reliable and you heed all the do and don't warnings in the owners manual.
I can't wait to buy different cal barrel sleeves and probes, I can see a .22 in the future. I did remove the barrel sleeve and clean, I highly recommend cleaning barrel in any new gun because the first two patches were black so barrel was dirty from whatever FX uses to preserve or manufacture the bore with.
Gun has a lightweight feel, cheekpiece is fully adjustable and I moved up about 1/2" to suite my shooting position. I used High sport match mounts and had to shim bottom half of rear mount because I was close to max on elevation without shim. I ended up ordering a set of Burris Signature 420566 mounts with Posalign inserts to correct this issue for good. Anyone else out there with a Crown please feel free to add comments or thoughts, I will post more data as I shoot Crown
