    I own a Royale 500 & Boss, .25 & .30 cal. respectively. Bought the Royale new from  UA a couple summers ago & the Boss, used, a few months back. I'm putting on average 50 pellets a week through each hunting. Not much straight range time to speak of. Both guns are a dream accuracy wise, mechanically, quietness, etc. I'm finding so little info on gun maintenance for these in this forum & even on Ernest's Master Class vids. Have never had either one apart, done any adjusting, never done ANYTHING but load, shoot, lube & clean once in a while. Should I be doing something on a regular basis or "if it ain't broke, don't futz wit it"? They are so trouble & adjustment free & RELIABLE. Is that why there's so few posts or am I missing something?  I just want to keep them in the best functioning condition possible. REALLY LOVE THESE & WOULD NOT SELL OR TRADE 'em, YET. Please advise,  someone who knows. THANKS

    I have a Royale 400, same experience, just load and shoot. Totally reliable and very accurate. These rifles are becoming more removed from the current FX business model of pure innovation, and I fear they may not be around too much longer. I had a Crown, interesting rifle, but I sold it. I wouldn't trade my Royale for any other rifle FX makes. Sometimes I wonder if they pay their designers for the most parts they can put in a rifle!  I like the Chick-fil-A model, do something simple, but do it well.

    I just picked a up a nice used Boss and I like it so well, I'm wondering if I should be on the hunt for a FX 500 before they become hard to find?

    I say if it isn't broke don't fix it, I have 3 fx rifles to include a boss and all 3 have been trouble free. They are all three original smooth twist I did put a huma reg in my impact because it is a better made reg than original factory but other than that I haven't changed an O ring in any of them. I have lost count of the tins of pellets I have put through them.

    My .22 Royale just passed 50,000 rounds.  No problems at all with the regulator or the rifle.  My .22 Independence has 45,000 rounds through it.  Again, no real issues to speak of.  Similar for my Boss and .30 Impact.  12,000 and 3,000 rounds respectively and again, no regulator issues or rifle issues at all.

    Glad to hear these comments. Personally my criteria is met, SIMPLICITY, RELIABILITY, REPEATABILITY, ACCURACY & QUIETNESS!  Guess I'll just keep doing what I've been doing which is next to NOTHING.

    For a newbie waiting for his first air rifle to show up (Royale 400) this was certainly a great post to read.  Thanks everyone for sharing.

    Hope you enjoy it and are as impressed as all who've posted on this subject. GREAT gun, excited & happy for you. Let me know what you think when she's broken in! If you decide to get extra magazines DON'T pay FX prices. I've gotten 4 from a guy who fabricated them from aircraft aluminium & they're HALF the price, $29.99! Works flawlessly, they just wind CLOCKWISE for the 1st pellet as opposed to FX's COUNTERCLOCKWISE.
