    Well got it this morning and did a bit of sighting in on low power in the backyard.  Loving it so far!  Tomorrow I’ll head up a forest service road and take it for a good stroll.  The stock is absolutely gorgeous.

    It’s .25 with a 6-18×50 Hawke Panorama.  I couldn’t justify the added expense for a CF tank maybe down the road who knows I got it as is for around 1450 USD which is tough to beat at the moment.  And thanks guys.

    She’s a beauty! Enjoy! :)
    You already saw my post on maintenance. If you do go to adjust the hammer spring, use heat on the HST plate and medium pressure on the allen wrench until it breaks free. Those HST plates can get buggered up pretty easily.

    That is beautiful. How come I haven’t seen a moderator like that before? Mine is the traditional long tube. Did you buy it from a custom shop or from an individual? is it loud? Is your gun regulated?
    Enough questions for now. Congrats on a great looking gun.

    If you plan on adjusting the hammer spring you will need heat,that is for sure.Save yourself some griff and order a couple of the little cheap pieces of metal from AOA
     if you strip it out don’t panic. Just heat it with heat gun and use the right size ezout. Comes out real easy then. I stripped out 2 of them.

    Also, do yourself a favor and get your hands on some replacement breech seal o-rings.  I have had a Royale 400 (.22)  for a little under two months and was all excited to do some shooting this past weekend and blew mine out.  Nobody locally had a replacement and I was kicking myself for not having any on hand.  I probably have 2 tins of pellets or so through my FX.

    I’ve bought mine in Amazon, i can send you the link if you want. I recomend you to try the buna70 and 90 as well if the polyurethane70 are causing issues. I’ve the link in amazon of those 3 and worked perfectly

    Really nice rifle. Gorgous stock and looks like you lost an inch or two with the way that moderator is set up. Royale 500’s can always stand to lose an inch or two! I’ve got one in walnut. Accurate as anything. Mine continues to impress me. Have fun with that thing!

Haha,  the different moderator is because i’m in Canada.  We aren’t allowed any kind of sound moderator unfortunately.  I imagine when the Crown gets up here it’ll have a similar barrel, no cool shrouds or suppressors for us.  I’ve only tried it so far on the low power in the backyard and its borderline backyard friendly.  Not any louder than my springer I think (on low) but it has a different sound.  Yes it’s regulated, and I actually had to get my firearms license to buy this up here.   You guys are lucky they aren’t classified as firearms down there.

    Thanks for the heads up about the breech seals gentlemen and please post a link here.  Although it might be different size with .25 cal,  I’m surprised it never came with any spare o-rings.

    Funny I just received one as well.
    Loving it so far.
    I have already started to modify mine.
    I bought the carbon fiber tank from Talon Tunes and installed it the same day I got the gun.
    Today I stopped on my way home and picked up a regulator for it from Airguns of Arizona, they are local for me.

    Here is a peak at mine.

Yeah that’s beautiful,  the walnut and laminate are even for me.  I love the look of them,  those CF tanks are 189 from Talon Tunes?  The advantages are lighter and higher shot count?  Whats the fill pressure?

    Thanks for the kind words.

    Allow me to express my congratulations, and more, my jealousy.  Currently saving for my next gun and the .25 Royal was top on my list. Enjoy the rifle!

    I don’t think there are any issues with the 500’s O-rings. I replaced mine while I had the barrel off several months ago but never had any issues before or after and is seals 100% unlike some of the 400’s.

Would it be a good idea to keep the probe a bit lubed with silicone lubricant?

    I think it’s not. Lubing the pellet probe with silicone grease will make the grease to reach the pellet and the barrel, that will cause accuracy issues. I’ve seen that in my Royale
