Things I liked:You get exactly what is advertised with this gun. My issues with it are entirely because of me. My expectations were far greater than PA or Walther had stated. The look and feel along with the fit and finish of this gun is excellent. Also the gun function flawlessly and is easy to load and operate. For me, that is where the things I liked about this gun ends.
Things I would have changed:The only other CO2 rifle I have is the Hammerli 850 Magnum. I'm not sure its fair to compare these two, but thats what i did. Both are stated to be plinking guns. However the Hammerli is $150 cheaper, it has fiber optic sights front and rear, it is noticeably more powerful than the Walther (760 fps vs 600fps), it has a much better trigger, and because of the fiber optic sights and trigger, the Hammerli 850 magnum was much more accurate for me.
What others should know:If you buy this gun, do so for it's outstanding looks feel and style. In my opinion, my expectations were not realistic because of my experience with the Hammerli 850 Magnum. The Walther .177 Lever Action is a great looking gun, but as I've previously stated it lacks power, and the sights and trigger do not lend themselves to accuracy. Additionally the $439 price tag is steep for what you get. At that price point you just about get a Beeman R9 which is in a very, very different class.
Things I liked:I love replicas and this is one of the best. Very solid. Real wood! Accurate out of the box and it's a repeater with an eight round mag.
Things I would have changed:I wouldn't change a thing. Some reviewers don't like the larger butt pad that holds the larger CO2 cartridge, but it fits me just fine.
What others should know:Two things: The lanyard ring does spin freely and may scratch the metal around it. Also, when inserting magazines, be careful to avoid scratching the metal between the release and the mag slot with the metal magazine. Make sure the slot is fully open. But, keep in mind, that the only way to keep your gun pristine is to leave it in the box; a little wear is a sign of a useful tool. Oh yeah, 90 gram cartridges also fit.
Things I liked:This Walther Lever Action rifle is a beautiful air rifle. The appearance of the real reddish-brown wood stock with the all metal barrel and action is a pleasure to behold. The lever action works smoothly and easily, and the standard Umarex 8 shot magazines worked well with every one of 20 different pellets I shot with this rifle. The accuracy using the open sights was not as good as I had expected with pellets hitting the target about 2" below my aim point even after adjusting the rear sight as much as possible to bring up the point of impact. I wasn't very concerned about that because I mounted a UTG 4X32 AO mil-dot reticle rifle scope (PY-A-4315) on the rifle. After sighting in the scope at 10 meters, the accuracy was excellent! Bench rested 10 meter 8 shot groups were 5/8" or less for 8 of the 20 pellets I shot. Another 10 pellets gave me 8 shot groups between 5/8" and 1". The smallest 8 shot group was 3/8" using H&N Sport wadcutter pellets.
Things I would have changed:I wouldn't change anything with the rifle itself. I would ask Pyramyd Air to persuade Umarex to distribute a 2X12 g CO2 adapter here in the U.S. for this Walther Lever Action rifle. Umarex distributes a 2X12 g adapter for the Hammerli 850 Air Magnum rifle, but that adapter is too long for the Walther rifle stock. The 850 2X12 g CO2 adapter does work in the Walther Lever Action rifle, and it gave me about 120 total shots. However, the 850 2X12 g adapter prevents the re-attachment of the butt cap on the Walther rifle stock. You really can't properly shoulder the Walther rifle with that 850 adapter sticking out so the only way you can shoot the Walther that way is by resting it on a bench, bag, or table. Although the larger 88 g / 90 g CO2 provide more shots per cylinder, most days I don't want to have to shoot several hundred shots in an afternoon in order to completely consume the CO2 so that the rifle is not stored under pressure when I am done shooting.
What others should know:I tested the Walther Lever Action rifle with both Walther and Air Venturi CO2. I stopped shooting when the shot point of impact was at least 2 mil-dots below my aim point. The total shot counts were 522 for the Walther and 504 for the Air Venturi. These are the pellets and their group sizes: (Wadcutters) Crosman Premier Super Match (1"), RWS Meisterkugeln Pistol (5/8"), RWS Meisterkugeln Rifle (3/4"), RWS Hobby (7/8"), RWS Supermag (1"), H&N Sport (3/8"), H&N Match Pistol (5/8"), H&N Finale Match Pistol (5/8"), H&N Match Rifle (1"), H&N Finale Match Rifle (3/4"), JSB Match Diabolo Light Weight (3/4"), (Domed) Crosman Premier Ultra Magnum (1 1/4"), RWS Superdome (3/4"), H&N Field Target Trophy (5/8"), H&N Baracuda (1/2"), JSB Exact Diabolo (3/4"), (Pointed) Crosman Premier Super Point (>2"), RWS Super Point (1"), and H&N Spitzkugel (1/2").
