By Thomas from USA on 2013-07-13 11:15:20Things I liked:This is my 2nd Walther LGV. I had originally bought the LGV Comp. but found it to be just too heavy and I also was very disappointed in that it had a spring twang and buzz, something I thought the LGV was definitely not supposed to have. I sent the LGV Comp back and ordered this Ultra. Now THIS is the ticket! It is lighter and there is absolutely no buzz or twang in the spring. There is just a very solid thud but no audible noise in the spring firing mechanism. This is my 1st springer and I am very pleased with it now that I have one that performs as advertised. Walther's website, the box and the brochure all have this statement: "The Sound of Silence" so when I got the 1st LGV I knew something wasn't right. I was amazed and relieved by the quiet thud of the 2nd unit though. The build quality is extremely high on these LGVs. The bluing to the steel is excellent, though not on the order of an AA TX-200 I am sure, the difference being the smoothness of the surface. The TX-200 appears to have a mirror like finish giving the bluing a high gloss. The LGV bluing has more of a satin sheen in painting terms. Nevertheless it is a beautiful air rifle. It's a Walther and it is unmistakably a German designed and crafted air rifle. It just wreaks QUALITY and lifetime durability- a true family heirloom. I highly recommend this air rifle.
Things I would have changed:Concerning the spring buzz, Walther should not let an LGV leave their factory that has a buzz and twang like the first unit I received. It is inexcusable, ESPECIALLY considering the kind of money these cost! Also, the higher LGV models should come with the metal tuning trigger ALREADY installed. I shouldn't have to order and install it for the Master Ultra, it should already be in there. That kind of tight-wad corporate number cruncher driven crap just rubs me the wrong way and I expect more from company like Walther than that kind of profit manipulation.
What others should know:If you get one of these and you hear anything other than a sold thud, then your unit isn't properly tuned or whatever Walther does to make it sound like the Ultra I got the 2nd time around. It may have to do with not enough Walther Piston Grease being applied. I don’t know. If that was the problem, you can buy the Walther Piston Grease here on Pyramyd as well which you will need to buy anyway if you buy an LGV.

By Brian from USA on 2014-10-05 07:05:43Things I liked:Every thing about this rifle is a testament to wonderful German Craftsmanship and Quality control. Of the many break barrel air guns I have owned these LGVs are the best.
Things I would have changed:Just a little pricey but worth it as far as I'm concerned.
What others should know:My 117 cal version cocks a little more difficult than my 22 cal version, but not bad at all.
