The FX Royale 500 is an exceptional sporter air rifle and the Royale series is the epitome of years of quality FX air rifles. This version of the 500 Royale features a handsome ambidextrous walnut thumbhole stock. FX has sourced incredible wood to provide the highest quality wood stock available. With checkering on the grip and forend of the stock, you'll have both beauty and a high degree of grib and feel for what will soon become you favorite airgun.

FX airguns have spent countless hours perfecting and pushing the boundaries of what airguns can do. And while the Walnut FX Royale 500 air rifle features many high end cutting edge features, it is presented in a straight forward simple design that shooters will find familiar and comfortable. The FX Royale 500 Walnut is essentially the .25 caliber of the 400 series. 500 standing for the larger 500cc air cylinder that provides the power needed to power this larger caliber. It also features a longer barrel than its smaller caliber counterpart in order to maximize performance and obtain power and velocity needed for this more hunting oriented caliber.

The Royale breech block was developed carefully over years to produce the best breech block and valve system to date on an airgun. The breech is cycled by the super smooth side lever cocking system that advances the 11 shot magazine. Internally between the air cylinder and the breech is a regulator to provide exact and consistent air pressure for each shot. The result is less variance between shot velocity compared to non-regulated air rifles, all of which lends to more accuracy. And really is anything more important!?

FX Royale 500, Synthetic Features DiagramThe muzzle of the barrel is shrouded and moderated to dampen the noise of the rifle. The barrel itself is an exceptional piece of craftsmanship featuring the patented FX Smooth Twist Barrel technology. Essentially a smooth bore barrel for the first 95% of the barrel, the pellet upon firing has less friction compared to a standard barrel's rifling, so that energy can build more efficiently and quickly. Then the final section of the barrel introduces an aggressive twist, rotating the pellet to stabilize its flight and provide an amazingly high degree of accuracy.

The Royale 500 right out of the box is tuned to where you can expect 55 ft/lbs of power and velocities around 900 fps. All FX rifles are really created and designed towards firing JSB pellets and that is our recommendation. At full power expect to get about 60 shots. If you?d like even more shots and don't need high power, turn down the power of the gun with the 2-step power adjuster on the side of the breech. This will extend the shot count even high as well as reduce the rapport of the gun, both of which are great when you're just getting in some trigger time.

The Royale 500 also features an incredible trigger. Set at just 12oz out of the box, you?ll be amazed that such a high end trigger can be found on an air rifle at this price. Normally triggers like this would only be found on high end field target and 10m air rifles.

Note: .30 caliber version of this gun is available. It's called the FX Boss.

The choice is very difficult

Hi, I'm stuck between this rifle (.25 calFX Royale 500) and the rifle (FX Impact X) (.25 cal) Please tell me which rifle is more accurate Which is better for distances above one hundred meters? I need your experience. Thank you

Though I didn't purchase my Royale 500 from A.D. I still wanted to leave a comment for those "on the fence" about buying this gun. I've had mine for almost 3 years. ABSOLUTELY trouble free! I lube it once in a while & run a few patches through if I notice any POI change or spiraling (about every 1,000-1500 shots). The accuracy & repeatability is phenomenal. I own only 2 airguns now, the Royale 500 & FX Boss (.30). Sold ALL my other guns. That's how satisfied & confident I am of these rifles. They ALWAYS deliver what I need & want. Straight out of the box they were amazing & that's only gotten better with time.IMHO this is the best platform FX has ever made. Quiet, accurate, repeatable, DEPENDABLE. Who could ask for more?

build quality is great supper smooth action, very accurate and quit. Great wood and the metal work is nice as is the fit and finish.

Quit accuracy and buttery smooth operation

need a little more room around the fill nipple

By JAMES G.February 18, 2017

I have owned many high quality rifles, from saco action with a heart barrel. A custom 6ppc built by one of the world's best rifle smiths. Costing many thousands to build,they all shot good. But I have more fun shooting the FX. Im having fun again trying to figure out the point of aim and how much the wind effects the pellet. I know that I would be frustrated if it wasn't for the FX.this thing blows me away.

I shoot left handed, I wish I would have noticed that the laminated model can be used right or left. If I start saving now I should be to afford the stock in 14 years

asked farhad from Iraq

I want to order on FX, but I don't know if in 25 caliber, or 30 caliber. I need to know what velocity was the 55 fpe achieved and the pellet weight; also, what was the weight of the pellet to obtain the 900 fps; lastly, what was the weight, velocity of the pellet to obtain the "60" shots along with the regulator setting. According to the laws of physics to obtain all values stated in description is impossible in this dimension and universe, even by removing all coefficient of friction you cannot obtain 55 fpe, at 900 fps with 30.5 ci at 3200 psi.and regulated. If the regulator is set at 2000 psi, I calculate the best case scenario at 45 fpe, 46 shots, at 900 fps, using a 25 grain pellet. Thanks and I'd appreciate any response from experience with the statistical data mentioned above. Now, for a little math for the sniper geeks out there: psi x area x length = pound force, if tuned properly expect the caliber as the closest to efficiency (n), in this case 25%, so 2000 psi x pi / 4 x 0.25 x 0.25 x 25.5 / 12 x 25% = fpe at the muzzle. The key now is to find the sweet-spot pellet for the barrel to obtain the highest efficiency, which is measured in fpe at the muzzle divided by the pound force pushing sweet-pellet at its best balanced weight to coefficient of barrel friction and ambient air being compressed ahead with the right length of barrel. Hint: always calculate using standard pressure and temperature then you can tweak to your x,y,z coordinate location with relative humidity, temperature, barometric pressure, wind direction and speed, angle of inclination, direction of shot e,w,s,n for Coriolis, Earth spin, and such. The worst hit in history is still better than the best miss in history. I'm saving all my recycla bles to buy my dream gun. Heck! I just gathered 6 empty aluminum beer cans while writing this question, and without moving from my lazy boy remote control lift with massage.

asked Francisco Briseno

David. This is my first pcp gun. I love the way it shuts. I took the stock of to adjust the trigger as i was removing the stock the see through cap on top of the pressure gauge came off. I tried to put it back on. It stady on but not firmly. Is it supposed to be glued on. Please.if anyone knows let me know.?

asked David sauceda

What wood be the best scopes for the fx Royal 500. At long and short range. Hunting. I wood like to spend no more than $300.
