    • Spring-piston
    • Breakbarrel

    The box states this gun delivers 700 fps. Airgun writer Tom Gaylord tested this gun for the Pyramyd Air blog and got 755 fps when using extremly lightweight alloy (lead-free, 4.0 grains) pellets. If you use lightweight lead pellets (7.0 grains), your velocity will be around 560 to 580 fps. He found that Gamo Match pellets (7.56 grains) delivered the best accuracy when shooting the pistol from a rested position.


    If you like to shoot spinners or do some casual target shooting, the LP8 is perfect. Repeatable accuracy!

    Things I liked:This is an edit to a review I submitted almost (4) hours ago (approx. 6pm PST) today. In the earlier review I incorrectly recalled my chronograph reading with a CPHP 7.9g pellet as 580fps. My notes show the highest reading was actually 528.6. Sorry for the bad memory.

    Things I liked:Everything. This gun is an engineering marvel. Well balanced, crazy powerful, accurate, minimal recoil, lifetime warranty, quiet, and good looking to boot.
    Things I would have changed:In the real world, nothing. In Airgun Utopia, this would be a lower priced repeater, same specs otherwise.
    What others should know:I put this gun on the Chrony right away to check Tom Gaylord's 755 fps with 4g Crosman lead-free pellets; I got a high of 846 fps. No joke!! I got 725 fps with 5.4g Gamo Match lead-free, and 580 fps with 7.9g Crosman Premier HPs. Everything I tested was accurate, but I've only shot at 20ft so far. I hope I can adjust my accuracy rating once I really test it. I was so impressed with the quiet report that I broke out the sound meter for a measly 67db reading. That's 8db quieter than my Beeman P17 or Browning Buckmark, which compare to the sound of popping those little bubble wrap bubbles. Never mind my neighbor who thought it was too loud for a short, before work target session. We agreed that after 8am, it's no issue at all. He just doesn't understand airgunning or this fine piece of German craftsmanship. I feel sorry for him...

    Things I liked:This is a very nice air pistol of high quality. Very hefty in your hand. Cocking aid works great and easily slide on to cock, then off to shoot, then flip the safety off with your shooting hand. Easy to get hooked and rattle off 100 shots in a row. RWS German quality.
    Things I would have changed:The true glow sights are highly visible, however the width of the gap in the rear sight seems wide and deep. So it seems there is a bit more effort on your part to place the front sight both in the middle and at the right height.
    What others should know:This is a spring gun, so it has the recoil from the powerful spring in it. Spring guns, while single load and shot, sure are better than dealing with leaking C02 cartridges.

    • Durwood from USA asked:

      Has anyone changed the barrel to .22 and or is it possible?

      • Jerry from USA:

        You would need to contact Umarex to see if it's possible, 476-646-4210 Ext 7

    • quang from USA asked:

      Can I bring this gun out side U.S.A

      • Val from USA:

        it really depends on the laws of the country where you are traveling...
