“chasdicapua”Strikey, even if your on rifle gauge was 10 bar off and the regulator was actually 150 bar, it’s pretty impressive that your still getting 65+ shots (as you said, the air reservoir may not have been full) at an average of 931 psi! Did you tweek the rifle, or is this how it is shooting out of the box? The reason I want to know is that I’m going to get a Royale 500 and am deciding on whether to get it regulated or not. I’d like to get it regulated, but am worried that with it being regulated, there wouldn’t be enough power to push the heavies to an optimal FPS. But this gives me reason to reconsider.

 

All I did to the rifle was shoot about 200 pellets before running anything over the chrony so basically these results are as is straight from the box, so to speak, I was not expecting these sort of numbers but I am impressed. Next chance I get to go the range I may play with the hammer spring tension but I think I need to try some groups at 50 & 100yds first. I emailed these figures to our Australian importer ( Hermanns Sporting Guns ) along with graphs of the shot strings which actually show 50 plus shots within a 10fps spread also they confirmed the regulator is set at 140bar. If you are considering a 500 I would recommend a walnut stock or laminate model, that’s where I should have went, not a fan of their new synthetic stocks.
