Reply To: Finally my FX Royale 500 has arrived but…
Its all good, Pedro, Hermanns Sporting Guns, ( Australian FX importers ) have replaced the rifle with another fitted with an older model 400 synthetic stock ( I actually prefer this stock to the newer models ) with the brass insert for the stock screw which I think is more secure. The countersunk screw into the synthetic stock was causing problems before I had a chance to put a pellet through it so I was not confident what would happen to the stock in the long term, possibly cracking from the pressure applied through the countersink? I wasn’t waiting to find out as Murphy’s Law would dictate and then if the stock had a failure it would happen outside of warranty.
My 400 had a few contact points that needed relieving also but the 500 was bad, perhaps it is widespread, maybe some people either don’t care or are not aware, anyway I am very happy with both my FX’s and the service I received from Hermanns.
Thanks for your interest and sorry for the late reply.
