Walther LGV air rifle - Airgun Reporter Episode #98

After weeks of research I decided on buying LGV Challenger in .177 cal.Right out of the box with very minimal sight adjustment ,I was shooting 1/2 inch groups from a distance of 20 meters.I understood for the first time why 3.8kg weight of the rifle was so important;The comfort ,and stability was fantastic,smoothness of cocking amazing,honestly the rifle sounded like shooting a gas ram rifle not a springer.With a scope, I can imagine that from 30 meters I will achieve similar accuracy.The only thing was that the gromet covering 1/2-20NF thread at the end of the barrel was getting loose after several shots.I bought a rubber o-ring and it solved the issue (the idea came from my Hatsan air pistol).I wish the trigger was metal not plastic,but even top German manufacturers start cutting corners these days.I am very happy with a rifle mostly because the accuracy and consistency of a shot.

Best break barrel I've ever had was an English made in Birmingham Webley Longbow. Fantastic thing and I wish I still had it.

A great trigger makes it possible to make a great air rifle really sing in the accuracy department.

That's a tough choice! All three are among the best spring rifles I've tested, so you can't go wrong with any of them.

Quite welcome! The weight of the LGV reminds me of my love affair with the 350 Magnum, Air King, and Mod 460. I'd rather have to do extra push ups and forearm curls than give up shooting those awesome rifles. I like a good PCP, but mastering springers is like fishing...You need patience, a little luck and humility. *Zen & the Art of Spring Piston Rifles*

Right? I knew I was pushing it, but when I shot that group at 50 yards, I was like: "It's a wrap!, strike the down range camera I'm not gonna do better than that today!"

I would have to go with the Colt 1911, PY-2777-5417, or Walther CP88, PY-110-367. If you search for the code after each gun, starting with PY on our website, you will find those airguns. :) Thanks, Pyramyd Air Team
