    If the price isnt an issue the stock on the royale gets my vote, mags are interchangeable. Its same basic gun for the most part its just a choice of presentation I went with the very lite traditional carry all day synthetic streamline 65 shots on a full 230 bar. The royale I barrowed and I dont remember the shot count. The only thing I dont like is the fill method not a fan of the probe style fill on the streamline i keep messin them up the orings.

    “alex2865”Why not put a huma reg and a tar spring kit.ant u be good to go on the Mrod.alex

    
I guess the real reason is because I wanted a Royal 400.  

    I’ll probably put the Gen 1 .22 Mrod up for sale in a little while.

Humm, you reckon I ought to buy a back-up supply of o-rings for the probe?  Or is it avoidable if I just be careful?

    Its my first airgun with that style fill it was not intuitive at what angle to try and push it in. I took off the cover so I could see both ends of the hole it pulls right off and snaps back in place so it was easy. Then I just put the probe in a handful of times to get a bit of muscle memory built up. I am good with it now but I prefer the the other foster style fill like the Mrod and most of my bottle guns. Nothing to easily damage and ruin my fun that way.

    Certainly have some extra breech seal O-rings on hand as they do wear out, especially if you shoot a lot.  As I noted earlier, my Royale had 20,000 rounds through it and I put over 1,000 more just this past week.  I try to replace the breech seal every 2,000 rounds or so, or before a FT competition.   I will probably install new seals today in all of my PCP’s.

What breech orings are you using? I’ve tried the polyurethane ones but they don’t seem to seal as well as the buna. I’ve tired de buna 90 too but i’m a little woried about deforming the pellet skirts wile passing throught them

    I’d would go with Royale 400. Regulated and much longer on the market.

    Niiice stock and even better when you see it in person. I’ve never tried to make a full shot string but i’m planning to as soon as i finish tunning some stuffs. According to some revews it’s giving 100+ shots from a 220 bar fill at full power (32fpe) and 170 shots in 19fpe

    The Royale 400 showed up today.  What a nice looking rifle.  I’ve got to put a scope on it and see how it performs.  I’m putting a Nikon Prostate Target EFR 3-9×40 (AO) scope on it.

    Play time is tomorrow.  :)

    Niiice!! Remember to clean the barrel before start any test, running some clean patches throught the bore should do the job. And remember the first 15 aprox shots after cleaning the barrel will not have the same performance as the other ones, the barrel needs some shots to settle down ;)
    Enjoy
