Also, maybe Royals were manufactured this way, it proovedAugust 24 2006 at 12:08 AM

Response to Sorry, I've got a Royal that was made in 04 with that same rail. And EVERY Royal I
to be good, so now they use this same method on their new rifles. There's bound to be mixing and matching over time and similar guns, but I think the fact that all synth stocks w/ the screw in raised rail are 06' is a little hard to deny.
Maybe there is a real quality difference between royals and non royals, but I wouldn't be at all suprised if they were made on the same line and only given different stocks. I'm not trying to start any fights here, but maybe we're imagining there is a difference where there is none, or perhaps only a coincidental difference. I'd be a little suprised if El Gamo had a seperate assembly line for each of it's many rifles, and then for supposed grade levels w/in those models. It seems a little absurd for them to have that many assembly lines or to retool and change tolerances for nearly identical rifles. I think there are good and poor quality guns in both the shadow(or CFX) and supreme(or CFX Royal). Perhaps they are wide spread quality differences between the grades, but I doubt it. It's just too easy for El Gamo to make them together, rather than seperate.
We defend our cheapo Gamos against those who shoot rifles two and three times more expensive. In a similar way I think we may be trying to justify the price differences between models by believing the difference is more than the caliber or stock.
