Like all air rifles made by FX around the Royale breech block, the FX Royale 500 includes an internal regulator and valve system that delivers consistency not found in lesser airguns. The side-lever cocking system is buttery smooth and provides easy follow-up shots without fear of the rotary mag jamming. The breech will stay cocked open upon emptying the 11 shot rotary mag so you won?t mistakenly fire without a pellet, not just wasting air, but more importantly possibly missing out on the perfect shot.
The 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.
You can expect from your factory tuned FX Royale 500 to achieve up to 55 ft/lbs of power and velocities as high as 900 fps depending on the pellet you choose to fire. With a full 220 bar (3200 psi) fill you should expect approximately 60 full power regulated shots. The internal regulator will insure less variance between shots which allows for a high degree of confidence in shot placements even at exceptional distances not usually associated with airguns.
If you don't want full power the FX Royale 500 is easily adjusted to a lower power setting using the 2 stage power adjuster on the left side of the breech. This will reduce power and extend your shot count. The Royale 500 also features a fully adjustable two-stage match trigger that is one of the best we?ve fired on a PCP air rifle.
The stock on this Royale 500 is a soft touch coated synthetic all-weather stock. Note that the synthetic stock is right handed only. Left handed shooters will need to consider either the walnut or black pepper laminate stocks, both of which are ambidextrous.
A .30 caliber version of this gun is available. It's called the FX Boss.
