    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 Challenger. 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 Challenger 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: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.

    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.

    Things I liked:Really nice gun! Smooth, quiet, accurate, beautifully finished, exceptional sights and trigger. Solid feeling polymer stock looks great and fits me perfectly. Unexpectedly flat shooting over my 30 yd range and I don't see a lot of sensitivity to how the gun is held.
    Things I would have changed:Pricey, but features of the LGV can be had only as expensive custom rework on most other guns, if at all.
    What others should know:I gave up air rifles years ago after I experienced most every problem ever written about the highly regarded Beeman R8 (4 new R8s returned!). It was a big step for me to try again, but so far, this LGV is everything I wanted. PA's return policy sealed the deal for me, but I don't think I'll be needing it.
