The original Walther LGV was a match rifle produced in the late 1960s and early 1970s. It was the pinnacle of Walther's breakbarrel target rifles. Now, Walther has reintroduced the LGV line with several different models that include many of the fine features of that original target gun.

Let's start with the barrel latch, which is pushed down to break open the breech. In addition to the normal barrel detent that holds the barrel closed, the barrel latch creates a secondary point to hold the breech rock-solid tight. This creates a fit so snug that it's like having a fixed barrel rifle.

How about a great match trigger? You don't often find one on a sporting gun, but you will when you get the LGV. The trigger-pull is set at 3 lbs., but you can adjust it to suit your preferences.

With the Super Silent Technology, the gun won't be as prone to disturb your neighbors...or spook any critters you're trying to dispatch.

While this airgun has the power for hunting, it's also got the accuracy for popping bullseye targets all day long.

There's just one more thing you need to know: The Walther LGV air rifle is accurate. It lives up to its German manufacture and heritage and will keep you shooting for decades. You will never regret buying this air gun!

Things I liked: I have the .177 & .22 cal. Here is my list= Accuracy- .177(H&N 10.65g) @25yds 10 shots=.34" OD, the .22(JSB 15.89) is a bit larger. Not pellet picky, not hold sensitive, one hand cocking, quiet, no vibration. This gun comes tuned, which is worth about $300.

Things I would have changed: There is a tree out my back yard at 78yds. and I whack crows out the bedroom window. Would anyone need more power for an air gun?

What others should know: My guns weigh 9.5lbs. with the Hawke 2-7x32. Same as my Winchester model 70. Now for the BIG ONE-most break barrels, after sitting for a time, need 2-3 shots to get them warmed up & going. Not the Walther, let it sit 2 days or 2 weeks, load it up & shoot a bullseye! SOLID,SMOOTH,POWERFUL,ACCURATE,QUIET.

Things I liked: Accuracy, super smooth cocking stroke and that it can be taken apart w/o a spring compressor. It is fairly quiet.

Things I would have changed: There is noticeable twang in the plastic stock something this gun isn't supposed to have. Include the tuning trigger as stock as most guns at this price point have a metal trigger that allows adjustment of 1st and 2nd stage. The stock trigger on this gun is plastic with only 1st stage adjustment.

What others should know: The .177 shooting JSB 8.4 chronied at approx 860fps at 4700 ft elevation.

Verified Purchase

Things I liked: Smooth! Excellent quality, materials, fit and finish! Trigger is excellent!

Things I would have changed: If Walther could shave a pound off by using Al or Ti, it would be a perfect 10! Also would desire a removable barrel-end fiber sight and handle (I removed both to accommodate a 30mm low rider red dot; removal is do-able not quite enjoyable).

What others should know: Have owned a HW77 and Gamo products, I find Walther in a league by itself. I'll use this .22 forsmall game hunting.
