    similar looking guns – please any opinions – i see they both have moderators – how effective are they in taming the blast of these powerful rifles?

    I have an FX Boss. For such a powerful air rifle, it is very quiet. The sound of the pellet hitting the target is louder than the report of the rifle. I would call it back yard friendly.

    Difficult decision

    BOSS – in black pepper looks amazing, slightly longer (120cm) than the RAW (118cm) but much lighter (3400g vs 3950g) and cheaper by about 300euro. I would suspect similar shot count and noise levels?

    I’ve had both the FX Royale 500 and a RAW HM1000X, each .25, not .30 but for the sake of comparison I don’t think it’ll matter much. Long story short, I kept the FX Royale for 2 years and still regret selling it. It was quieter, more accurate, I had fewer problems with it and the side lever action was much smoother. Not to mention that it was MUCH lighter than the RAW. The RAW by comparison seems like it takes 2 men and a boy scout to lug around. I only had the RAW for a month and won’t miss it if I never have another one. I know they have a cult like following but I guess I’m one of the few that just doesn’t get it. I really don’t see where there is such a great value for the money. Maybe if you’re a machinist or a competent tuner they have the potential to be awesome? I don’t know for sure and regardless, for that kind of money I want competent accuracy out of the box without tinkering, never mind having to overcome issues just to get the gun to function properly.

    The one concession I have to give to the RAW was that it hands down had the best trigger I’ve ever used. Regardless, the trigger on the FX was still so good that if you ever missed your target you could not blame it on the trigger and I was perfectly happy shooting it the way it came out of the box for 2 years.

    Best luck with whatever you choose.

    The Boss will have a higher shot count (45-50 vs 35 for the RAW) but, the Boss is filled to 250 bar and the RAW to 230 bar. But I imagine the Boss would still have over 35 shots when filled to 230 bar. Just sold mine. Hated to get rid of it, but wanted to downsize in caliber to a .25 and am getting the Royale 500.
