The heart of the air rifle is the superb Royale breech block which has an internal regulator and valve system that provides consistent shot after consistent shot. The side cocking lever is effortlessly smooth which rotates the 12-shot rotary mag (16-shot in .177 caliber). The barrel is shrouded and moderated to suppress rapport.
The barrel is FX's state of the art FX Smooth Twist barrel. This barrel is an innovative barrel design that is essentially a smooth bore barrel for the majority of the length, with an aggressive twist/rifling at the end of the barrel to introduce stabilizing spin as the pellet leaves the barrel. The result is world class accuracy without diminishing power. This accuracy has been proven time and again at competitions throughout the world.
Our Royale 400's have been upgraded with 480cc carbon fiber air cylinders. These have a max fill of 250 bar (3600 psi) which allows for more shots per fill than the standard Royale 400 aluminum air cylinders as well as lightening the weight of the gun. If you don't want full power the FX Royale 400 is easily adjusted to lower powers using the 3 step power adjuster on the left side of the breech. This will reduce power and extend your shot count.
The Royale 400 air rifle features an exceptional fully adjustable two-stage match trigger. Out of the box you'll find the first stage to be very light with a clean break (factory tuned to just 12oz!). The stock is synthetic, coated with a soft touch all weather coating that provides a great feel and grip. Note that the synthetic stock is a right handed only thumbhole stock. Left handed shooters will need to consider either the walnut or black pepper laminate stocks, both of which are ambidextrous. The stock is very well balanced with a balancing point located just under the breech, making it easy to shoot off hand.
Note: Higher calibers are available in this series of airgun. The FX Royale 500 is the .25 caliber version, and the FX Boss is the .30 caliber version.

The rifle is a work of art! The attention to detail, engeneering and workmanship are the best I have seen so far in an airgun (very much in lign with the quality of the "diana model 100" that I bought more than 30 years ago).
THE WEIGHT: The gun feels lighter than expected (I attributed it to the carbon fiber tank and to the syntethic stock) by the time I added an high power scope the weight is perfect most of the guns once outfited with a big scope seems way too heavy to my taste. So for me I got the perfect combo.Ÿ‘
THE STOCK: I'm 6 1 and have large hands the grip fit me perfectly overall the closest in comfort to a match grade rifle. Ÿ‘
OPERATION: The side lever is smooth as butter and requires little to no effort to operateŸ‘. The trigger is litterally match grade qualityŸ‘ Accuracy with the right pellet this is amazingly consistent. At 25 yards sub 1/4 inch group all day long at full powerŸ‘ the Power wheel is a nice bonus, this allows 3 levels of power adjustment as well as sound level control (low power makes the gun almost silent)Ÿ‘ The 400cc tank along with the regulator and the "factory tune" allows for a ton of shots per fillŸ‘
