Introducing the first member of the Royale family…the FX Royale 400!
Q: What do you get when two leading designers put their heads together on one project?
A: One amazing airgun!
The FX Royale 400 is built by FX Airguns in Sweden. Fredrik Axelsson is both the owner and designer of FX, and he pooled the knowledge of Ben Taylor in the making of the Royale series. Ben Taylor is the man who started and designed the Theoben rifles many years ago. He has since gained years of knowledge and experience in custom valving and precharged design. Combine that with FX’s leading designs, and you have one very nice airgun.
Here’s a quick rundown of the features:
- Removable 400cc Bottle
- Quick Fill Adaptor
- Pressure Gauge
- Side Lever Cocking Arm
- 12-Shot Magazine (16 in .177)
- Integral Barrel Shroud
- Thumbhole Stock in Walnut or Synthetic
- Adjustable Butt Pad
- 2-Stage Adjustable Trigger
Many of these features are available on other rifles in production, but with the Royale, the words “Best available” should be inserted before each feature. This rifle is extremely nice, and a superb value for the money. But what of performance? Here is some of our test results:
- 35+ ft/lbs in .22 caliber
- 60 shots per fill in .22 caliber
- 1/2 inch groups at 50 yards
