The FX Royale really changed what you could expect from a PCP air rifle when it was first released in 2009. And to this day it remains for many the perfect air rifle that is unmatched in its straight forward accuracy, consistency, and performance.
The FX Royale was created by Fredrik Axelsson over the space of two years to perfect the block and valve system with help from Ben Taylor (who is also known as the co-founder of Theoben). The result is pure perfection. An amazingly rifle that is a pleasure to shoot. It has a buttery smooth side lever attached to the Royale breech that is as solid as they come. The rifle is balanced, quiet and soft shooting with a fantastic two stage adjustable trigger tuned at just 16oz from the factory.
The FX Royale is available in .177, .22 & .25 caliber. For those wanting to shoot .30 caliber, look to the FX Boss which is the larger caliber big brother of the FX Royale. The accuracy of the rifle is all due to the brilliant FX Smooth Twist Barrel. This is the original Smooth Twist barrel where a majority of the barrel is smooth bore except for the last two inches of the barrel where the twist (or rifles) is imparted to the barrel from the outside in. This engages the pellet as it travels down the barrel gaining speed and giving the necessary spin to the pellet right before leaving the barrel.
The FX Royale is as simple as that. Built around specific pellets that will maximize the accuracy of the gun: JSB/FX pellets sized at 8.4gr in .177, 15.89gr in .22, and 25.39gr in .25 caliber. The FX Royale is a dedicated pellet gun meaning unlike the more modern FX rifles you won’t be shooting airgun slugs, hybrid slugs, or other heavier pellets. For many that’s just what you want in an air rifle and to this day, the FX Royale stands as a perfect air rifle. Truly airgun royalty.
