Walther's Lever Action CO2 rifle is the airgun version of the Winchester 1894 firearm! So realistic, no one will be able to tell the difference between your air rifle and the firearm!
Powered by one 88-gram CO2 cartridge that slips into a compartment neatly concealed by the slide-out buttpad, this rifle will deliver lots of powerful shots from its 8-shot rotary clip.
If looks were all that it took to make airgunners happy, this rifle would do the trick. The rich hardwood stock and forearm are combined with high-quality, blued steel components. They even included the metal saddle ring found on the 1894 Winchester firearm.
The super-accurate barrel delivers 10-shot groups of 5/8" (center-to-center) at 10 meters.
The weight, the feel, the size, the way it sits naturally in your hands while you work the lever just like Chuck Connors on The Rifleman -- you're gonna kick yourself for not getting this gun sooner!

Things I liked: It's a good home practice gun for my Winchester 94 Lever Action Silhouette gun. The weight is good. It functions smoothly. The loading gate magazine release is cool. Get lots of shots on single CO2 Charge, and the rotary magazine works great.
Things I would have changed: The buttstock is just way too huge! It's considerably wider than the real gun and worst of all, the length of pull is about an inch longer. It's still a fun gun to shoot, but the ergonomics don't match the real thing. The sights are crap and not easily upgradable. The front is in a dovetail, but it's not a standard width. Would have been great if the receiver had been drilled and tapped for a receiver sight like many Winchesters are. For all the effort to make the gun look and feel like a real Winchester 94, they didn't quite get there. Makes we wonder if Walther actually ever touched a real gun or just went off of pictures. The fore end doesn't even pass through the barrel band. Come on guys!
Things I liked: This is one of the most realistic and well made air rifles. I really like the large gas cylinders and eight pellet circular magazines. The feel of the rifle is very much like the original winchesters. The feel and look are great and well worth the price. Great fun.
Things I would have changed: Nothing really, I just wish it was still made in stainless steel to match my "colt" pellet pistol
What others should know: If you are interested in a lever action rifle for fun in the back yard or plinking at rats you can't beat the fun.
Things I liked: Large CO2 capacity. Resembles my high power lever action guns. Excellent trainer. Great improvement over previous model with two 12 gram powerlets.
Things I would have changed: Front sight is non standard thread and dovetail so difficult to change although I did.
What others should know: Added marbles peep sight to correspond to my lever guns and changed front sight to hi viz optic for inside shooting at air Venturi trap with four pigs. Lots of fun and great for trigger and follow through practice.
It looks like the front sight is canted to the right which would make it difficult for a lefty. Can it be adjusted to suit a left handed shooter?
Is their any co2 adapter for this gun?
I called Umarex tech support. They told me that ANY product that they import, and which uses the 88 g cylinder, will also use the Hammerli 850 12 g dual cylinder adaptor! IMHO, that makes shooting cheaper as 12 g cylinders are much cheaper to buy, and the adaptor can be removed before the cylinders are empty, and reinserted later on without loss of gas, unlike the 88 g cylinders that will lose all gas when removed!
Why can't this be shipped to Canada.....I have a F.A.C........I can buy a rifle if I need one......just wondering.....
