Reply To: FX 400 or Daystate Renegade
They are likely both equally reliable
The renegade is much prettier if you like tube guns and gorgeous stocks.
The Royale has more performance features such as the power adjuster mentioned above. More importantly it is regulated which makes for more consistent long range accuracy. Also FX has the butter smooth side wheel rather than a bolt action but that is kind of a preference. I’ve had both Daystate and BSA with a bolt and I greatly prefer the effortless side cocking on the FX guns.
They’re both really nice guns at the end of the day. If the performance features of the Royale didn’t matter to me, most importantly the regulator and the side lever, I would probably choose the Daystate based on looks.
