Reply To: Finally my FX Royale 500 has arrived but…
Very happy with my FXs.
The only problem present in the 3 I have is what was mentioned above……..the bottle contacting the stock forend.
The more the stock holdown screw was tightend, the more pressure on the bottle……not right, at all as it puts pressure on both bottle & stock.
On the Boss it was so bad the space between the rear moderator body and bottle was almost nil at the front.
Well, fixed the problem with a few sheets of poly-ply material (fiber reinforced plastic-used in R/C aircraft buiding) cut & fitted
between the lower receiver and stock. The total of the 3-4 sheets may measure about 1/8 inch. Then a bit longer holdown screw is needed.
Heck, if my three FXs (Elite, Royale 500 & Boss) have the same problem with the stock, walnut & synthetic, assume it’s widespread.
Easy mod, if you want pics let me know.
