<P>Rich from Mich has romanced by CFX Royal. Above are 5 shots at 40 yards (shot by Rich).</P>
<P>The cocking is now smooth as silk on silk. No creaks or groans, just "snick" at end end when it latches.</P>
<P>The breech opens with a flick of the thumb now and it's easier to load pellets (what the heck does he do to the loading "bowl"?)</P>
<P>The GTX trigger now has a very distinct wall at the beginning of the second stage, and when it breaks, the CFX goes "Twonk!" No longer does it sound like a box of loose parts. Rich also fitted one of his neato muzzle breaks.</P>
<P>With a snowstorm screaming in on us yesterday afternoon, I only got two shots for accuracy before I had to quit. Both went through the same hole at 13 yards (I don't mean sorta the same hole, I mean the SAME hole.)</P>
<P>My brief initial impression is that Rich does very nice work.</P>
<P>You'll be hearing more about this gun when it is sane to shoot again.</P>

<P>He did mine as well, it is like a new / different rifle now. I still have to play with it enough to find the pellets it likes best now. I have found that it does not like CP lites. hehe!</P>
<P>I'm ordering a bunch of different types, so I can start to process...... Anyone have a suggestion on the best "top 5" pellets to start out trying? I'd hate to waste loads of time.</P>
