Walther LGV Ultra air rifle
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 Ultra. 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 Ultra 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, build quality, noise level, relative ease of cocking, balance,power, comes with sights. Did I say accuracy?! This is a pleasure to shoot. I thought that the shorter portion of the barrel break would make it difficult to cock but not at all. I like the lock that holds the barrel in place and the automatic safety is a good safety feature without being annoying - the safety is very easy to set and take off.
Things I would have changed: Add sling studs. Tempting to say the weight but that seems to help control recoil so I'll keep the weight. I'd like to say price (I'm cheap) but I have to say the gun seems worth the price
What others should know: You can't get a fair appraisal of your accuracy and skills without a gun that shoots consistently. This gun is spot-on accurate and very consistent. The sights are great right out of the box and will suit welling a pinch but with a gun that is easily accurate to 40 yards my eyes need the help of a scope on small targets. It is a bit heavy to carry while hunting but thats why I plan to rig a sling that won't get in the way when cocking the barrel.
Things I liked: I love this gun. It is very smooth. Cocks smoothly with no funny noises and shoots with a twang free solid thunk. Even the breech lockup when returning the barrel to battery is solid and free of any funny noises. The lack of vibration has allowed the screws to all stay tight so far (~250 rounds) which is not something I've seen with other springers. Of course all that smooth behavior is meaningless without accuracy and the guns delivers in this category. It is as easy to shoot and as accurate as my R7 but with more power holds that accuracy at greater distances. The trigger has a long first stage followed by a crisp release. I sense no creep or grittiness. Noise level is low for a springer. It is no louder than my R7.
What others should know: I'm getting 11.5 fpe with this springer. The gun is heavy and the weight is mostly forward. Shooting from a bench or rest is wonderful. Shooting offhand is more work. Rear sight removal apparently takes heat.
Things I liked: I got my LGV Ultra .22 about a year ago and have fired well over a thousand rounds through it. It is outstanding in quality of workmanship and performance. It has easy cocking effort, very low recoil and is extremely accurate. Combined with a great trigger it is just a joy to shoot. I don’t think you shouldn’t have to send a new rifle to an airgun-smith to get it tuned or upgraded in order for it to shoot at its full potential. It should be just fine the way it is, right out of the box. Excellent job Walther!
Things I would have changed: In the U.S. the .177 version comes with a more powerful spring than the European version. That’s why .177 owners here complain of “spring twang”. The .22 version comes with the less powerful European spring that this gun was designed for, so no twang, just a quiet thump.
What others should know: Although it will shoot a variety of pellets accurately, using the JSB 15.89gr domed at 25 yards my LGV will consistently shoot 1/8” groups and has plenty of power for hunting small game (13.35 FPE @ muzzle / 8.79 FPE @ 50 yards). Hunting, like target shooting, is not about power but accuracy and that’s where the LGV Ultra shines. If the price is what’s holding you back… premium mounts that don’t creep and high power scopes that can stand up to the punishment of springers are expensive. The harsh recoil of magnum springers will usually destroy even the most expensive airgun rated scopes over time. The LGV Ultra in .22 cal has such a smooth firing cycle it does fine with cheaper standard mounts and inexpensive high power airgun scopes, saving you hundreds of dollars. I would rather invest in a quality rifle than waste the same money throwing expensive scopes away.
What material is the knurled thread protection cap at the end of the aluminum muzzle brake? Is it also aluminum or is it steel?
Umarex, a German company, is the distributor of products carrying the Walther brand, but that doesn't mean those products are being manufactured in Germany. Can you tell me where the Walther LGV Ultra is currently being manufactured, and what company makes the barrels used in that manufacture? I'd be surprised to hear that any part of it is made in Europe?
