My brother and I each own a .22, FX Royale 400 and we have put thousands of rounds through them, probably approaching close to 16,000 through his and 20,000 through mine in the past two years. My 400 has the walnut stock, my brother purchased his 400 with the synthetic stock and after using it for a couple of months he has resented selecting that stock ever since. His feelings have nothing to do with any inherent problems with the stock or rifle itself, but rather the 400 with the carbon fiber bottle and synthetic stock is almost too light. The bare rifle weighs exactly 5 lbs. on my work shipping scales. This light weight is great for all day field or woods carrying, but for competitive shooting it is too light. Also, every time he sees the beautiful wood stock on my Royale 400, he just shakes his head and says he made a mistake not getting that stock.
As for shooting, both rifles are VERY smooth to operate, uncanny accurate, have great shot counts and have proven to be reliable beyond belief.
